Imagine your future career


Imagine Education Australia is a Gold Coast-based Vocational Education and Training College, founded in 2005. We deliver quality training in automotive, business, child care, community services, fitness, and hospitality for Australian students who do not wish to study at university or who do not meet the requirements for direct entry into university.

Students may progress on to university after studying at Imagine by taking advantage of Imagine's Foundation Pathway program. There are a number of special pathways from our Vocational programs that allow you to progress onto the Bachelor programs with credit; meaning you can complete your degree even faster.

Our main campus is located at 13 Benowa Road, Southport (opposite Southport Park shopping centre) and we have on-site training facilities including an automotive workshop, commercial kitchen, hair and beauty salon, and child care centres for our students to gain real-world experience in their chosen fields.
