Excellent place to further your studies
THE University of Melbourne enjoys an outstanding reputation with world rankings consistently placing it as one of the world’s top 50 universities.
Situated in the heart of the world’s most liveable city, the university is home to more than 40,000 students annually, around a third of which come from countries all around the world.
The main campus is located minutes from Melbourne’s central business district, offering easy access to transport, accommodation, shopping, dining and entertainment.
The University of Melbourne’s degrees work a bit differently from other Australian universities. They are similar to those offered by many top institutions overseas. Students start with an undergraduate degree and then choose to specialise at graduate level.
The university wants its students to create their own study paths, and explore new options along the way. This is important in a world where careers are changing fast and employers want independent thinking.
Its 10 undergraduate degrees include nearly 100 major fields of study, giving students broad exposure to different ideas, approaches and ways of thinking from across many disciplines.
In most degrees, students won’t need to select their major on day one. In their first year they are supported to explore a range of subject areas so they are well informed about their interests and career aspirations when it comes to choosing their major.
Bachelor’s degrees are offered in Agriculture, Arts, Biomedicine, Commerce, Design, Environments, Fine Arts, Music, Oral Health and Science. So for instance, a student wishing to become a lawyer would study any three-year undergraduate degree then apply to study a three-year Juris Doctor programme at Master’s level.
A prospective doctor would study a bachelor’s degree in Biomedicine or Science and apply for the Doctor of Medicine programme.
The undergraduate programmes mean that when students graduate they are work ready.
The University of Melbourne is ranked No.11 in the world for graduate employability and No.23 in the world for employer reputation by the QS World University Rankings 2017.
Internships and volunteering opportunities allow its undergraduate students to build experience and gain leadership experience while making contributions to their community.
