Holmesglen Institute is a vocational education and higher education institute situated in the Southeastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Since its inception in 1982, Holmesglen has grown from a delivery of 90 programs to 7,000 students, to its current offering of over 600 programs to more than 50,000 students. Holmesglen delivers internationally and nationally across four campuses: Chadstone, Moorabbin, Waverley, and City.
Founded on apprenticeships and courses for the Building Industry, Holmesglen has since expanded to offer courses over a broad range of subject areas. 2008 saw the introduction of a number of new degree and associate degree programs, increasing the Institute's range of higher education courses to 10. New degree programs, most notably the Bachelor of Nursing, commenced in 2009. Holmesglen is the only institute in Australia offering upper secondary, vocational and higher education.
Holmesglen operates on five campuses: Chadstone (adjacent to Holmesglen train station), Moorabbin, Glen Waverley, City and Eildon. The Chadstone campus is the largest and most widely recognized. It is here that the traditional trades areas are mostly housed in addition to many other course areas. The Chadstone Campus has three on-site cafeterias in Building Five, Three and One and it also has McDonald's and Nandos nearby. The campus is within walking distance to Chadstone Shopping Centre.
