Greater Education Opportunities

Tertiary study in Geelong offers a fast-paced city lifestyle, but with the heart and comfort of a smaller place.

We have world-class entertainment, arts, culture, sporting facilities, major shopping centre brands, great food, wine and coffee.

But…we’re home to beaches which are the envy of the country and lots of green, open spaces for that greater work-study balance. Housing and accommodation is more diverse and affordable and there’s less traffic, which means a shorter commute to study.

Geelong has an energy-filled entertainment calendar and nightlife, so there’s always something to do and we’ve become a destination for international bands.

If it’s secondary or primary schools you’re exploring, you’ll find some of Victoria’s top non-government schools and high-performing government schools, surrounded by great places to live.

Watch this short video to experience more of our greater study lifestyle.

"It is the livelihood of Geelong that makes me want to stay here. In terms of living, it is a regional area but it has almost everything a city has to offer."
