The College

Founded on the traditions of the world’s great collegiate universities, Trinity College in the University of Melbourne has been transforming students’ lives since 1872.



In all its diverse programs, Trinity promotes academic excellence, but also encourages students to extend their education far beyond the classroom.

As a result, the richness of student life sets the benchmark for collegiate education in Australia.

Opportunities abound for students to explore new interests and pursue their extra curricular passions – be they musical, sporting, cultural, spiritual, entrepreneurial, or in the areas of leadership and social responsibility. The breadth and depth of these opportunities, supported by extensive student welfare and pastoral care structures, and the diversity of students' backgrounds, nurtures the development of well-rounded individuals, able and willing to lead and serve, locally, nationally or internationally.

Trinity’s distinguished alumni network of over 23,000 individuals – including 37 Rhodes Scholars – have made their mark in academia, business, across professions, the church, governments and communities in some 60 countries around the world.
