Tours

Both 1st year and 2nd years of the course curriculum are underpinned by two major study tours, the first each year taking in many parts of Victoria, New South Wales or South Australia and the second at the end of August often internationally. International tours have in the past been conducted to New Zealand, China, Indonesia, and Singapore and Malaysia.

Study Experience

Marcus Oldham’s program delivery offers a unique opportunity to gain the most from your study experience. First year students are encouraged to reside full-time on campus. The collegiate environment provides an opportunity to draw upon the broad network of experiences and contacts to enhance the learning outcomes. The emphasis on valuable pre-entry experience before enrolling to study enhances the experience for all students. There is some capacity to accept second year students in the residences. The course is delivered using a range of teaching methodologies that includes using case studies, industry visits, practical demonstrations and experiential learning along with a strong systems thinking based curriculum.
