Education City

There is no other second tier city quite like Geelong in Australia in terms of making the most of our opportunities. Our rich history can be told through the amazing architecture that you will see throughout the city as we were founded on the gold and wool booms of the 18th Century through our international port, then a proud heritage of manufacturing, and now we have transformed into a smart city based on education, health and research. We call Australia 'The Lucky Country' and there is no where that expresses this more than Geelong.

Geelong is truly is an education city with a wide range of education providers and study pathways. When you move here you will be well looked after by the institution you enrol with and be welcomed into our community. We want you to make the most of the opportunities available, have a sense of belonging and try new experiences.
