Everyone who enrols with Box Hill Institute comes with the intention of gaining skills to assist in finding work in their chosen field. Our students are as varied as the courses we offer. Some are straight out of secondary school, while others are seeking to update or improve their skills and knowledge.

For some students, it is the opportunity to enter the workforce for the first time or to re-enter the workforce that motivates them to study. Other students have already worked for a number of years in a particular field or industry and they have decided to study for a completely new area of interest. Whatever your situation, you can be fairly certain that you’re not alone.
