Tertiary course offers

Many of our Year 12 students have received their first choice university offers from Melbourne's top universities. With nearly 60% of our students attending The University of Melbourne or Monash University, this reflects the high academic standard of teaching and learning at the college.


At Wesley, we offer a comprehensive curriculum, which supports individual learning and enables students to reach their potential. A rich variety of opportunities are offered within an innovative and caring environment. Individual needs are supported through a range of extension and enrichment programs.

Wesley College is a leading International Baccalaureate (IB) and VCE school, and is the only school in Victoria to offer an IB Programme which spans from Primary through to Senior School.

Our world-class IB Programme includes:
• The IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) — Three year-olds to Year 6
• The IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) — Years 7 to 10
• The IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) — Years 11 and 12

The IB Programme applies Wesley’s ethos of a True Education, providing a balanced approach to learning, with an emphasis on developing the whole person. It aims to instill in our students inquiring, internationally-minded thinking, in order to become active, compassionate, global citizens.
