Study Tours and Group Programs

Hawthorn-Melbourne has over 20 years’ experience delivering English language short courses to groups of students both on and offshore. We have run courses for all types of groups, including high school students, postgraduates, business managers and practitioners.

Whether you want a group study and travel experience, or just the English language class components, we can create a tailored package for you.

We have strong connections with various university faculties here in Melbourne. We can call on their resources to provide expertise on a range of subject matter to suit your group’s needs.

Generally, we run these courses from February to April and July to October. We will consider requests outside these dates on a case by case basis.
