Tabor specialises in the education and formation of community professionals such as teachers, counsellors, youth workers, pastors, musicians, creative communicators and intercultural workers. Established 40 years ago, Tabor is a Private Higher Education Provider, and Vocational Education and Training Provider. This means we offer wide-ranging levels of study, from Certificate II to post-graduate awards.
As a medium-sized college with small class sizes, we are exceptional in student engagement, scoring an average rating of 93% in “Quality of Educational Experience” in the Student Experience Survey* and 91% in “Student’s overall satisfaction” in the Course Experience Questionnaire**. At Tabor, we learn in community and our approach to teaching is personal, interactive and relational.
All that we are and do is infused by a Christian ethos that recognises spiritual formation as essential to flourishing in life and work. 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 campus in Millswood is just five minutes south of the city, with plenty of parking and easy access via public transport. Many of our students, however, are located all around Australia and study with us online.

Tabor offers a number of admission pathways that consider a range of qualifications and experience.
Applicants who do not meet the normal entry requirements may still be able to gain admission by demonstrating both their suitability for and aptitude to succeed in their studies by successfully completing Tabor’s internal Admissions Assessment.
All courses can be deferred for a period of up to 12 months.
Tabor seeks to maximise the credit that students can gain for learning already undertaken. Therefore, applicants may be granted formal recognition for the knowledge and skills they have achieved through previous training, education, and experience, and consequent exemption from particular subjects in our accredited courses.
Tabor has two commencement periods: semester 1 (late February to early March) and semester 2 (late July to early August). There is no disadvantage to students who commence their study in semester 2.
Students with disabilities
Tabor actively works with students with disabilities to provide them with a fair chance to succeed in their studies.
Our library services (both on campus and online) are focused upon supporting coursework students.
We provide both academic help and pastoral care to students via online resources, personal support, workshops, and counselling services.
