Studying in the Southern Highlands
Our Courses and Seminars are held at either Harmony Centre in Mittagong, or UOW Southern Highlands Campus, Kirkham Street, Moss Vale. As soon as you have enrolled we send your Student Welcome Pack which has all the key dates for your course so you can plan in advance your travel and accomodation arrangements.
Harmony Village is a Steiner Community and is very popular with our students as it offers affordable dormitory style, yet comfortable accommodation at $60 per night. It is in a lovely setting and is a 10 minute drive north of the Metavision Institute in Bowral and 3 minute drive from local shopping centres. It also has the added bonus of being our education venue.
*Harmony Centre is independently owned and operated, and is not managed by the Metavision Institute.
For further information and bookings you can contact Francis on (02) 4872 3999 or 0410 657 420 and let him know you are a Metavision student.
