The City of Brimbank is home to two of Victoria University’s campuses, located in Sunshine and St Albans.

The area is undergoing rapid and significant change, accelerated by an investment influx, growing health and justice industries, and rail and road developments.

We are working with Brimbank Council to help improve local employment, education, learning, health, wellbeing and socio-economic opportunities for the Brimbank community and Melbourne's west.
