The Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education is an internationally recognised research centre in the area of tertiary and higher education.
Our professional development programs and activities are for staff and graduate research students of the University. They cover four main areas: teaching and learning, research, engagement and leadership and management.
If you have any questions about professional development offered by the Melbourne CSHE please contact us:
We administer a program of University of Melbourne staff awards which recognise excellence in research, teaching, engagement, strategic priorities and professional support and services for students and fellow staff. We also assist the University's nominations for national awards, such as the Australian Awards for University Teaching.
We provide contemporary resources that are of benefit to staff at the University of Melbourne and the wider sector.
We run a variety of seminars and special events throughout the year aimed at staff and graduate researchers of the University of Melbourne as well as the higher education community.
Established in 1968, the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education (Melbourne CSHE) conducts research and professional development in the fields of higher education teaching and learning, research, engagement and leadership.
We aim to deliver quality and innovation in each of these fields through our signature research themes, distinctive projects, practical programs and special events.
The Melbourne CSHE is also home to the LH Martin Institute for Tertiary Education Leadership and Management.

- Provide practical examples that relate to participants' own situations
- Are led by practitioners in the field
- Arm participants with tools which can be applied immediately to their workplace
- Are informed by the latest research and resources on the tertiary education sector
The Institute became part of the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education in late 2014.
