Ex­cel­lent place to fur­ther your stud­ies

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

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.
