This year, thanks to a generous donation from a Marcus Oldham graduate, the College has been conducting a series of “Marcus Connect Tours”. The purpose is to listen to what is happening in the country and connect with alumni where they live.

So far, the Tour has caught up with over 400 graduates, families, work experience employers, donors, and the broader Marcus Oldham community across five states and territories.

Functions have been held in Darwin, Goondiwindi, Tamworth, Toowoomba, Perth, Albury, Launceston, and Geelong.  Council Chair, Rob McGavin, was joined by members of the Council, Foundation Chair James Bufton, MOCOSA President Peter Stephens, and the Marcus Leadership Executive.

The Marcus Connect Tour will visit more regions in 2024. We strongly encourage graduates to attend a function next year if one is in your area. Alumni and friends at this year’s events had a fun night, appreciated the visit by the College to their region, and enjoyed catching up with so many like-minded people, talking about all things Marcus Oldham.

The Tour gives the opportunity to explain to graduates a number of key features of the College:

  • current courses, curriculum, and accelerated degree program
  • student entry criteria and selection process – with 60% of current applicants unable to be offered a place due to strong demand.
  • governance of the College, including the appointment and role of Council, Foundation and MOCOSA.

In 2024 the Marcus Connect Tour is visiting:


  • 6th Deniliquin
  • 7th Orange
  • 8th Wagga Wagga


  • 8th Rockhampton
  • 9th Roma


  • 15th Horsham
  • 16th Geelong


  • 6th Adelaide

Other visits and functions may be added to this list. Updates will be published on our website and e-newsletters.
