Overview

As one of the more recently established TAFEs of the country, Wodonga TAFE offers vocational training and education since 1986. Situated in a rather rural part of Victoria, the Institute is constantly monitoring the needs and requirement of the local economy. In doing so, the future growth and prosperity of the region are considered along with promising job-opportunities for graduates. To ensure equal learning experiences to all students, some courses can be participated in online, or part-online, as well as through the Open-Learning-Centre.

 

Location

Situated on the banks of the Murray River, Wodonga sits opposite its twin city of Albury, NSW. At some spots the Riverbanks are lined with the Murray River Red Gums, enormous eucalyptus trees that can grow older than one hundred years. The region features diverse landscapes. While certain areas are dominated by fertile plains, to the south the mountains of the Great Dividing Range are looming.

 

Campuses

The Institute’s main campus is located within the city of Wodonga, while other locations include Mt Beauty and Corryong with Vocational Training Centres and Rutherglen with its study centre.

 

Accomodation

Wodonga TAFE shares a residential building on campus with La Trobe University. The 69 room complex contains twelve fully furnished units, each accommodating four to six students. Facilities include single bedrooms and shared kitchen, laundry, bathroom and living area.
