About Holmes



Established in 1963, Holmes commenced building a proud tradition of business excellence with the founding of a commercial college in Melbourne Australia. By 1986, Holmes had established one of Victoria's first accredited private English Language centres and the Holmes Education Group, a respected entity in professional Australian education. In 1987, High School Preparation for international students began, followed in 1988 by the opening of the first Holmes interstate campus in Sydney. Progressively, over the next fifteen years, Holmes has expanded the national campus network to include Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Cairns, as well as introducing Cambridge Teacher Training for English language teachers in 1989 and the launch in 1989 of a comprehensive national Study Tour program.

For over forty years, Holmes has had an enviable reputation as a quality education provider, being 100% Australian owned and maintaining since 1988 an unchanged senior management team. From 1988, Holmes has moved steadily towards active involvement with the higher education sector, particularly in the provision of undergraduate level degrees. The establishment of the Holmes Institute of Higher Education is in fulfilment of the company's higher education mission.

Since 2001, through these partnerships, Holmes has delivered undergraduate degree programs in addition to offering postgraduate options. Commencing 2004, the Holmes Institute of Higher Education enters an exciting era in quality, degree-based learning, preparing students for a changing global business environment by offering the Holmes Bachelor of Business and Bachelor, Bachelor of Information Systems and Bachelor of Fashion Business. Today, Holmes offers a range of diplomas, bachelors' degrees in business, information systems and fashion and masters' degrees in business administration, professional accounting and information systems.
