Dickson College has a proud record of academic excellence and a fine reputation for assisting students to make the transition from a structured learning environment into the workplace or tertiary education institutions, with their greater emphasis on independence. We offer a wide range of courses from the key learning areas, as well as opportunities for students to broaden their horizons through a program of registered courses.Students can make up a study program from tertiary accredited courses or nationally recognized vocational courses depending on their educational goal.

Dickson is a great place to be. The College encourages individual and sporting activities using both the College and local community facilities.
