Please subscribe below to receive monthly updates from us on upcoming programs, events, research and other projects, plus other news of interest to University of Melbourne staff and graduate researchers and the wider higher education sector.
Our programs are designed to support careers in higher education teaching, research, engagement and leadership. They cover all career stages - from graduate researcher to established academics - and are contextualised to the needs of University of Melbourne staff (for internal programs) and the needs of the wider sector (for public or bespoke programs).
Study programs for international institutions
In addition to the above, we also conduct study programs for international delegations of academic and institutional leaders. Programs are tailored to each visiting delegation but typically include seminars, lectures and workshops in which participants learn from leading university academics, experts and administrators, across areas as diverse as strategic planning and quality assurance, teaching and learning, research and research development, and higher education policy.
