Help and support students and staff in their learning and teaching endeavours.
The Armadale Campus is the most southerly of all of Polytechnic West's six major campuses, and also supports the specialist Equine Centre. In addition to the main campus, there is a small annex in the centre of Armadale.
Polytechnic West's Equine Training Centre , also located in Armadale, is arguably the best horse training facility in the State. It has established strong links with the racing, breeding and farriery industries, with graduates keenly sought to work in racing and pacing stables, horse studs, agistment centres, industry administration, veterinary practices or related areas.
