Holmes Insitute was established as a premier business school in Melbourne, Australia. Since 1990 Holmes Institute has expanded interstate, adding campuses in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Cairns. They have also established a campus in Hong Kong, and a working relationship with Qingdao University in China. 

Whilst expanding geographically, Holmes Institute continued to increase its course offerings. Having originated as a Secretarial College, they began teaching English in 1989 before expanding into Accounting, Management and Marketing, as well as Hospitality and other vocational qualifications. In 2005, Holmes Institute became the first Private Education Provider to be accredited with their own Bachelor of Business. 

Since 2005, Holmes has continually expanded its Higher Education Faculty so that they now boast their own Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Professional Accounting, Master of Business Administration and Master of Professional Accounting, across the three states and Hong Kong. Their most recent addition is a Melbourne based Bachelor of Fashion and Business. 

Whilst Holmes Institute has remained a market leader in offering private Higher Education, its reputation for high quality English and vocational courses has remained with the intention of being a one-stop shop giving more flexibility between courses and locations than almost any other provider.

Holmes Institute became part of the recently created Holmes Group which now boasts ownership of Melbourne School of Fashion, Headmasters Academy, Oxford House College English school in England and Richmond Language Training English school in London. 

Throughout all of the Holmes Groups courses the management retains its fundamental principles which are to instill rational thought, intellectual integrity and social responsibilty amongst its students. Their crest reads 'Cum Propris Suis Alit Volat' which translated means, 'With your own wings you will fly'.

Over 50,000 students have graduated from Holmes Australia since 1963. The student body currently represents 35 countries, guaranteeing students a truly international experience. Holmes currently has campuses in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns and Hong Kong.
