Why Choose Taylors College

WHY TAYLORS COLLEGE

It began as George Taylor and Staff (GT&S) offering tuition to students of the University Melbourne and was one of 13 colleges at the time to do so. Whilst all of the other colleges eventually shut down, Taylors college, as it was later known, grew stronger and in 1952 recruited its first international student.

Intensive Program (30 weeks)
In the Intensive Program, you will study almost the same number of hours as students who enrolled in the 40 week Standard Program. However, your timetable will be arranged so that you can complete the course over a shorter period. You will have 30 hours of class time per week.
