Study in Regional Victoria

Study Melbourne also has a significant regional and rural focus.

This is to accommodate the increasing numbers of international students who may be looking for a study and lifestyle alternative to that of a major city.

Victoria’s country regions include BallaratBendigoGeelongGippslandSheppartonand Warrnambool.

They are all vibrant, independent and compact rural communities.

They host universities, TAFE institutes and outstanding government and non-government schools, with English language facilities as good as any offered in the capital cities and metropolitan suburbs of Australia.

They are located in a country environment that is contemporary, healthy, clean, safe and caring.

They are accessible to Melbourne by a fast modern transport system.

Victoria’s rural communities are continuing to enjoy solid economic conditions, providing plenty of workplace experience and jobs for both local and international students.

Because these rural communities place great emphasis on their community and sporting organisations, they provide excellent opportunities for international students to mix with local residents.

Australia generally, and Victoria in particular, is proud of its “country hospitality”.
