  • UBSS Name Change

    Why change the name to UBSS?

    The name Universal Business School Sydney (UBSS) is considered by GCA senior management and the former UIC Sydney Council (now UBSS Council) to better reflect and capture - through the new name - the academic discipline profile and Australian location of UIC Sydney. It is also envisioned to better position and promote our motto of "Launch your Career" , and highlight we are a registered higher education provider that offers government accredited degrees in accounting and business. 

     

    Why not call UBSS a  University?

    The use of the name 'University' has special rules and conditions under Australian government legislation. This means that the provider must meet these criteria. Note that there are currently 41 universities in Australia and gaining approval is a lengthy process. Be assured that  UBSS offers Bachelor degrees equivalent to university degrees. Details are available here.

     

    Does the Australian government know about the change?

    Yes, UBSS is now listed on the Tertiary Education & Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) website as a registered and approved higher education provider with the Australian government. Its proprietor remains as GCA. The TEQSA website publishes the official list of higher education providers approved to operate by the Australian government. UBSS is also listed on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) with GCA as its proprietor. UBSS is now listed on the Federal government's PRISMS database.

     

    Will the name change affect my course of study?

    No – there are no changes as a result of the name change to the content, mode of delivery, location of delivery, trimester dates, holiday dates or census dates as currently published for the Bachelor of Accounting and Bachelor of Business courses.

     

    Will the name change affect my student visa?

    No, you were granted a visa to study either the Bachelor of Accounting or Bachelor of Business at UIC Sydney for your specified CoE period. The course you are studying has not changed and neither has your CoE. UBSS is now listed on the Tertiary Education & Quality Standards Agency (TEQSA) website as a registered and approved higher education provider with the Australian government (replacing UIC Sydney).  All documentation you receive will indicate that UBSS formerly traded as UIC Sydney to avoid confusion.

     

    Will the name change affect my CoE?

    No, your CoE will remain as it is recorded on MyGCA.          

     

    Will it affect my fee-help contribution?

    No, your fee-help contribution is based on your course of study – and because there are no changes to your course of study, there are no changes to fee-help arrangements.

     

    Will the name change affect the fees I am paying?

    No, the 2012 fee schedule is published on the new UBSS website and is the same that was published on the former UIC website earlier this year. 

     

    Does the CPA and IPA know about the name change?

    Yes, the Dean has written to both organisations advising of the name change, and requested for these organisations to update their website lists of accredited providers accordingly. They have also been advised that the name change does not include any changes to the accredited Bachelor of Accounting course.

     

    Do I graduate from UBSS?

    Yes, all students graduating from 2012 will graduate from UBSS. All graduation documentation will indicate that UBSS formerly traded as UIC Sydney to avoid any potential confusion in the market place.

     

    What happens if I am a UIC Sydney graduate?

    Your UIC Sydney qualification is still 100% valid. All UBSS documentation indicates that UBSS formerly traded as UIC Sydney. UBSS is still part of GCA. However you can email GCA Student services at studentservices@centralcollege.edu.au for a replacement testamur (x1 only) that will be issued free of charge from August 2012.

     

    Does my agent know about the change?

    Yes, all GCA agents were sent the same letter that you received by email and MYGCA Bulletin advising of the name change.
