Young Leaders

Want to experience life at Australia's No. 1 ranked University?


The University of Melbourne is ranked No.34 worldwide and No.1 in Australia* 

If you are 14–17 and want a taste of university life, come and join our Young Leaders Programs at Trinity College, the University of Melbourne! More than 120 young people from all around the world participate in these fun and life-changing residential programs during the July and December school holidays.

You will experience what life is like at university and residential college in Australia while enjoying outstanding academic and personal development opportunities.

Choose a one-week or two-week academic stream where you will discover how to succeed at university, and develop skills to give you an edge for the future. 

You will form part of a close-knit mentor group and together you will experience an action-packed program; learn about your pathway to the University of Melbourne, be inspired by leading academics, enjoy a range of extracurricular activities, and build lasting friendships with young leaders from around the world. 

Many of our students later enrol in one of the College's other academic programs or join Trinity as a resident.
