Our campuses

We have seven campuses located in Australia, plus an international campus in Rome, Italy.

Our Ballarat Campus is located in the centre of Ballarat, just over an hour from Melbourne. Situated amid historic gardens and beautiful old buildings, and just a block from Lake Wendouree, it has a lot to offer. Explore the grounds, enjoy a home cooked meal at the canteen, and soak up the community vibe.

Whether you want to get involved in campus life, create a professional network, access support services or just find a quiet place to study — our Brisbane Campus has you covered. Set on 40 hectares of natural bushland, the campus has ample parking, state-of-the-art learning facilities, and recreational amenities such as cafes and a swimming pool.

Just five kilometres from the city centre, our Canberra Campus has a lot on offer. With a campus lounge, swimming pool and beautiful landscaped gardens, you'll have plenty to keep you busy between classes.

Our Melbourne Campus is right next to the cafes, art galleries and boutiques of Brunswick Street. Kick-back with a coffee on the rooftop garden and deck, hang out with friends in our modern cafes, or study in our state-of-the-art library.

Study your way

A workload that works for you

With options to study full-time or part-time, you can choose how much time you dedicate to study each semester. Work through your course as a full-time student, or take fewer subjects and complete your course part-time at your own pace – the choice is yours.

Flexible study options

Depending on your course, you may be able to study on campus, online or even a combination of both. Some courses can also be delivered in an intensive mode on weekends, helping you juggle work and family as well as study.

Have an impact

We love community engagement, so as a student you'll have the opportunity to take part in volunteer and community engagement activities. Give back to your community while gaining invaluable practical experience.

Get industry experience

We understand the best way for students to get ahead is with hands-on, practical experience. All our courses offer work placements or internships with leading companies, or volunteering opportunities. Many include practical experience as a course requirement.
