Young Leaders

Experience life at Australia's top-rated university*


Given the current uncertainty that surrounds the reopening of Australian borders, we have made the difficult decision to not offer the 2021 program to offshore students. 

Welcome to Young Leaders

The Young Leaders Program (YLP), offered at Trinity College, the University of Melbourne, has been developing future leaders since 2001. The program provides students aged 14 to 17 years inclusive with the opportunity to live on campus at Trinity College, the University of Melbourne's oldest residential college, and join lectures and workshops with other like-minded young leaders. Throughout YLP, participating students are guided and mentored by a team of university students.

YLP is a transformative experience for many students, who go on to describe the program as life-changing, inspiring and memorable. Some credit it as being one of the best weeks of their lives.

YLP is designed to allow students to choose from academic streams that best suit their future career ambitions, with the opportunity to join the program for one or two weeks.*Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020
