International students are able to immerse themselves in true Australian culture while learning new and emerging agricultural technologies at one of Australia’s most recognised Agricultural education institutions.

Chief Executive Officer
On behalf of the Horsham Rural City Council, I welcome international students and guests to our wonderful regional city.
Horsham Rural City is a vibrant, multi-cultural and inclusive community in the heart of the Victorian Wimmera.
Broadacre, dryland agriculture is our major industry and, with the Grains Innovation Park, BASF and Nuseed research facilities, we have internationally acclaimed agricultural researchers working with our innovative farmers to produce food to feed the world’s growing population.
As a region, we value that our agricultural sector is progressive, inventive, passionate, proactive and flexible.
Longerenong College is set on a magnificent 1070 hectare working farm on the outskirts of Horsham. Students at ‘Longy’ have the unique opportunity to live and learn on the land.
Prior to my election to Council, I was teaching Risk Management at Longerenong, and can attest to the quality of education that you will receive.
I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities that will be available to you while studying at Longerenong, one of Australia’s leading agricultural tertiary education institutions.
I am confident that you will enjoy your time in and around Horsham.
Cr Robyn Gulline, Mayor
