Holmesglen remains a leader in vocational and higher education, and one of the largest providers of TAFE in Victoria. Holmesglen delivers over 600 courses to nearly 50,000 students.
Introduction of recent legislation in Australia has opened the door for TAFE institutes to deliver Higher Education courses at Degree level in addition to Certificate and Diploma level qualifications. Holmesglen has embraced this new opportunity with enthusiasm and has developed several entirely new Bachelor's Degrees.The range of courses on offer at Holmesglen rapidly increased, and now the institute delivers not just vocational training for trades but also more academic courses including ten degrees in the areas of business, building, health & social sciences, hospitality, education & languages and arts & design.
Holmesglen operates on five campuses: Chadstone (adjacent to Holmesglen train station), Moorabbin, Glen Waverley, City and Eildon. The Chadstone campus is the largest and most widely recognised. It is here that the traditional trades areas are mostly housed in addition to many other course areas. The Chadstone Campus has three on-site cafeterias in Building Five, Three and One and it also has McDonald's and Nandos nearby. The campus is within walking distance to Chadstone Shopping Centre.The Moorabbin campus was acquired from Chisholm TAFE and began operating as a Holmesglen Campus in 2002. Prior to that it was part of Barton TAFE, before it merged to become Chisholm TAFC. and before that stood alone as Moorabbin Technical College. This campus delivers a diverse range of courses including hospitality, business, engineering, health sciences, fitness and short courses.
