At Tabor we focus on the community professions, offering undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and courses that equip teachers, counsellors, youth workers, pastors and ministry workers, musicians, creative writers and intercultural workers.
Our courses are academic but have a very practical focus to ensure our students are career-ready. As a medium-sized college with small class sizes, we are exceptional in student engagement, scoring a 94% positive rating in the national graduate satisfaction survey*.
Tabor’s campus in Millswood is just five minutes south of the city, with plenty of parking and easy access via public transport. Yet many of our students are located all around Australia and study with us online.
We welcome students of all backgrounds into a community of learning that strives for excellence in virtue, as well as in the pursuit of knowledge and the cultivation of skills. Our approach to teaching is personal, interactive and relational.
At Tabor we are unashamedly Christian and strive to be personal and user-friendly in our engagement with students and stakeholders. All that we are and do is infused by a Christian ethos that recognises spiritual formation as essential to flourishing in life and work.
Our students tell us they want to create a world that’s worth living in.

Education at Tabor
The Tabor Education Faculty specialises in Work Integrated Learning, which includes a high number of practicum days. This practical focus, along with strong teaching quality and support, gives our graduates a competitive employability edge.
Tabor graduates are confident to teach in both government and non-government schools. In many cases Christian studies subjects give students extra leverage for the Christian and religious schools sector.
Youth Work at Tabor
Youth Work is about recognising young people’s voices as valuable and helping them find their strength to achieve their full potential. Youth Work at Tabor is about forming the whole practitioner – not just education, but formation – into an effective Youth Worker.
Tabor focuses not only on theory but also very practical and industry engagement and field placements run throughout the program. Most of our youth work students receive job offers by the end of their second year of study.
Music at Tabor
At Tabor we believe music is a universal language. It inspires people. It promotes community, happiness and a sense of well-being. We need music in our lives!
The Tabor BMus degree is unique – and it’s growing fast. The course offers students the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the real world. Our graduates excel in various fields, and many of our students have become instrumental music teachers, music educators, performers, and sessional musicians.

As a Counsellor, you will assist your clients by helping them to understand and cope with difficult issues. You’ll empower them to develop self-understanding and make intentional changes to accomplish mental health and wellbeing in their lives.
