History[edit]

George Taylor and Staff (GT&S) was established in 1920. It was one of 13 colleges that offered tuition to students at the University of Melbourne, and within just a few years was the most successful college in terms of students’ results.[citation needed]

Many of the original colleges came and went over the following years, but GT&S continued to grow – moving premises several times to accommodate the rapid increase in student numbers.

George Taylor & Staff – which eventually became known as Taylors College – enrolled its first student from China in 1925.

In the 50 years between 1920 and 1970, Taylors College provided some 320,000 students with access to further educational and employment opportunities.
