Excelsia College (formerly Wesley Institute) is a tertiary education provider in Sydney, Australia offering undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in counselling, performing arts (drama and music), teacher education and business with a view to become Australia's first Protestant Christian University.
Wesley Institute for Ministry & the Arts was set up by Wesley Mission, Sydney in 1989 as a Christian Institute to train students for both ministry and the creative arts. It operated from a campus at Drummoyne, New South Wales, previously the site of the Drummoyne Boys' High School. In 2016, it relocated to Macquarie Park, New South Wales.
Government accreditation was granted in 1992.
On 4 October 2013, the Board of Trustees for Indiana Wesleyan University voted to acquire Wesley Institute, to create the IWU's first international campus. In early 2015 Wesley Institute changed its name to Excelsia College.
Faculty included Grenville Kent.
