Origins of Lerna – Dr Andrew Lancaster
The Lerna guide started in Canberra, Australia's capital city, in 2013. Unicurve's founder, Dr Andrew Lancaster, transitioned from a public service career to start developing education websites.
Andrew discovered an unmet need for good information about online courses.
People deserve reliable, user-friendly guidance when choosing between online courses. After all, your education often represents one of the biggest investments of time and money you'll ever make.
How Lerna Helps University and College Students
Lerna is here for students. Our key roles are to: (A) explain education and career options by study field and (B) help find the right course for you.
Choosing the right course is a path to a happy learning experience and career success. A good university or college course:
- engages you deeply and develops a learning habit that sticks
- offers a well-rounded education, balancing theory with application
- connects you to the job market with useful training and a valued qualification.
One of the ways we have been helping students is through scholarships such as the Study Abroad Award.
