With an annual enrolment base of up to 60,000 students, we are one of the largest Vocational Education and Training (VET) and higher education providers in Australia.
We currently offer over 1400 programs with a range of diverse courses available to International students.
Our three main campuses are in Box Hill, just 13 kilometres from Melbourne’s central business district (CBD). We also partner with the Centre for Adult Education (CAE), in Melbourne city, which means students also have access to our Melbourne City campus.
Pathways to degrees
Box Hill Institute offers both Vocational Education and Training (VET) and higher education courses. We offer many learning pathways from Certificate to Diploma level or even a Bachelor or Master degree. You can study your degree with us or progress to study with our partner universities. Pathways give you options to reach your study goals. Plus you could gain two qualifications in the same time – a diploma and a degree.
Vocational Education and Training (VET)
Our courses are generally shorter in length and tend to be more hands-on and practical than other university courses.
A VET course can be a good stepping stone to further study. Developed with industry, our VET courses focus on the job ready skills you need. Plus, VET classes are smaller, which give you more time with the teaching staff.
So whether you’re starting out or re-entering the workforce, Box Hill offers you many opportunities for your education and future career.
