About the Scholarship:
Marcus Oldham College is Australia’s only privately owned agriculture college. The university, which was formed in 1962 in Geelong, Victoria, accepts students from all Australian states and territories. The objective of the College is to educate and train committed progressive professionals who will flourish in the rapidly changing national and global environment. Marcus Oldham College promotes leadership, loyalty, and community service while valuing uniqueness, innovation, and excellence. Business management is the fundamental discipline in all of Marcus Oldham’s courses. A Bachelor of Business (Agricultural Management), an Advanced Diploma in Farm Business Management, a Diploma of Agribusiness, and a Diploma of Horse Business Management are among the academic programs offered.
Marcus stands apart because of its one-of-a-kind capacity to help people grow. The Marcus paradigm is built on case study learning, similar to the Harvard experience. High student contact hours, small class sizes, and excellent full-time and sessional professors with substantial commercial experience and the ability to apply theory to practice are all advantages students enjoy. The courses are created in close collaboration with the relevant businesses and include current trends and technology in the training programs. The focus is on business management, which provides skills that can be applied to a wide range of occupations, resulting in highly marketable graduates who are at the forefront of their areas. Marcus Oldham grads have a near-100 percent job placement rate. When you study at Marcus Oldham, you get so much more than just an education. Study trips are widely used on a national and worldwide level to provide a’real world’ education that supplements lecture room instruction.
Living on campus is a wonderful social and educational experience, as well as a great place to live and study. The campus is situated on 200 acres in Geelong and benefits from an accessible geographic position that allows for an excellent quality of life during free time: World-class surf beaches and the Great Ocean Road are only 25 minutes away, while Melbourne is only an hour away through the Geelong Ring Road. There are also frequent train connections and two airports – Melbourne and Geelong.
The majority of students choose on-campus housing, which consists of private bed/study rooms that are all connected to the College’s internal IT system and have access to free internet. The Computer Room and Library are open for study 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
During term time, all students have three meals a day, seven days a week in the Dining Room, which is a central element of the College. On weekdays, morning tea is available. Living on campus is handy for students who take one-day, multi-day, and overseas study excursions that depart early in the morning or return late in the evening. It also facilitates participation in sporting and social activities. Marcus Oldham College has required students to work in industry for a minimum of 12 months before beginning their studies and to complete a second year of employment in the middle of their course since its inception in 1962. Our graduates are closely linked to industry thanks to the structure of these programs.
The agriculture sector needs employees who have both practical skills and tertiary qualifications.
