The University of Wollongong has reiterated its support for Pitch@Palace Australia - the program launched by Prince Andrew in Wollongong back in 2017.
The Duke of York touched down in Perth earlier this week for the finals of his program, which promotes entrepreneurial ventures across the globe.
But Prince Andrew has kept a low profile since landing in Perth amid continued scrutiny about his friendship with dead billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The disgraced American financier took his own life in August in a New York prison cell where he was detained on charges of sex trafficking teenage girls.
According to Britain's The Sunday Times, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has expanded its inquiries to identify other victims of Epstein.
Prince Andrew, who in 2001 was photographed with a young woman who later accused Epstein of forcing her to have sex with powerful friends, has strongly denied any inappropriate behaviour.
He has said any allegations against him are "false" and "without foundation".
A UOW spokesman said the university would not comment about allegations that have not been proven in court.
"UOW supports and seeks to inspire innovation and entrepreneurship among its students and graduates and the wider community," the spokesman said.
"The university's involvement with Pitch@Palace gives graduates and aspiring entrepreneurs access to support and guidance from business leaders, enabling them to develop and fast track their ideas.
"It also provides the opportunity to pitch those ideas to potential investors on a global stage."
