Melbourne Polytechnic - A place to thrive  

Melbourne Polytechnic is Australia’s first true polytechnic, with over 100 years of history. We deliver over 300 industry-relevant and nationally accredited programs that give you the best of both worlds – theoretical learning combined with hands-on experience. We offer certificates, diplomas, advanced diplomas, and bachelor and masters degrees, in a vast range of study areas. Our six campuses in Melbourne are easily accessible via public transport – you’ll find us in Preston, Greensborough, Epping, Heidelberg, Fairfield, Prahran and Collingwood. Our Greensborough Campus has been recently renovated with state-of-the-art training facilities and simulation suites for our health and community courses. 

What sets us apart? To succeed in today’s evolving workplace, you need a quality qualification, transferable skills, experience and the right mindset. We deliver courses that include work placements, industry connections, simulations of real work environments, overseas study opportunities and industry-experienced teachers. Our smaller class sizes mean you’ll get more individual teaching time. Our teachers care about your learning – many are experts in their fields so you’ll have a wealth of information at your fingertips.   

Be a part of the great student services we offer – SLAM (student life and media) and events, libraries, cafeterias, childcare, tutoring, Koorie Services, disability support, the Preston Fitness Centre and on-campus accommodation.  

Melbourne Polytechnic - A place to differentiate yourself 

We’re here to help you achieve your best and we understand that your circumstances can change. If you face barriers to study, we can offer you personalised pathways, flexible study options and learning support. Our mission is to provide you with the opportunity to recognise your potential through quality education. We hope to enrich our wider society by nurturing each individual’s natural talents and strengths. 

We are proud that our students reflect different opinions, ethnicities, abilities, ages and social backgrounds – we value the new perspectives you bring to our institute. We welcome asylum seekers, recent migrants and international students to feel at home on our safe and friendly campuses, and have a range of specially designed courses if English is your second language. Did you know that you can sit your IELTS or Pearson English Test on our campuses too?
