About the institution

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 a 95% positive rating in the national graduate satisfaction survey*. 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.

Credit transfer

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.
