Welcome

The Archdiocese of Melbourne has been a proud sponsor of the John Paul II institute for Marriage and Family since its establishment in 2001.

The Council of the Institute is proud of the contribution made by both faculty and students to the Church and the community. 

The Institute is delighted to announce that the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the regulating authority for higher education in Australia, has approved the accreditation and re-accreditation of the Institute’s degrees for the maximum 7 year period until 21 June 2023.
