Ballarat boasts some of the state’s leading educational institutions.
Early childhood, primary and secondary education
Early childhood education is supplied through a range of providers across the municipality, from small family day care operators and private early learning centres, through to council-run facilities and large early learning centres.
Ballarat is also home to more than 40 primary schools, both public and private, and 10 secondary schools which include some of the state’s top performers. The city has historically attracted residents who were drawn to the many quality academic programs and high performing schools based on VCE study scores. This is expected to continue for years to come.
Tertiary and vocational training
Ballarat is home to two tertiary education providers, Federation University Australia and Australian Catholic University. Both universities have on and off campus living options available.
Several other universities also run courses and placement opportunities for students through a number of the city’s health service providers.
