Our History

Marcus Oldham College is a remarkable story. A bequest left to realise a vision…to establish an independent institution specialising in agricultural education. A college that would set the bar for producing motivated, progressive rural and equine professionals and who would excel in the global market.

Mission accomplished. Since 1962, Marcus Oldham has trained more than 3500 students from all over Australia and neighbouring countries in farm, agribusiness and equine business management. Graduates are highly sought and perform across a diverse range of industries on both a national and international platform.

The philosophy behind the educational programs is unique and quite simple. Real world information, face to face teaching and accessing the very best educators, specialists and thought leaders from around the world to work with our students. As an independent College, our academic programs have the ability to be updated and modified as industry demands; ensuring our graduates are equipped with the most relevant skills and knowledge available.

Today, the college remains true to its inception. A small, personal institution, committed to providing the very best learning outcome and career opportunity possible for each and every individual.
