How can we help? 

Returning to study can be a daunting prospect. Rest assured, we get it. In fact, we’re so familiar with the concerns of soon-to-be students, we’ve developed some specialised services to help put your mind at ease.   

Campus tours are the ideal way to picture what your Swinburne experience will look like, while current students guide you through the world-class facilities you’ll have access to while you study. Take the time to imagine what you could discover and create with our cutting-edge equipment, ask your guide all about life at Swinburne and scope out a sunny spot to sit with a coffee before classes.  

Or you might like to book a one-on-one session with a course adviser, who can help you discover flexible study options, explain costs and scholarship opportunities, and answer all of your questions, no matter how small or specific (don’t be shy, they’re absolute pros).
