About University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne enjoys an outstanding reputation with world rankings consistently placing us as Australia’s leading comprehensive research-intensive university, and one of the world’s top 50.

Melbourne attracts the best and brightest students and researchers and, with a history of over 160 years, we occupy a special place at the heart of our city’s cultural scene.

The Melbourne Curriculum draws students into a rich, distinctive, campus-based community, designed to provide students with greater flexibility, both in terms of subject choice and the timing of vocational decisions. Students undertake their studies in a blend of face-to-face and digital environments.

The University of Melbourne’s degrees work a bit differently from those at most other Australian universities. They’re similar to those offered by many top institutions overseas in that students start with an undergraduate degree, and can then choose to specialise at graduate level.

We empower students to choose their own direction and explore new options along the way. This is important in a world where careers are changing fast and employers value independent thinking.

Few people graduating today will stay in the same industry forever. With our degrees, you can build the right skills to adapt and to change successfully. Short form

Established in 1853, the University of Melbourne makes distinctive contributions to society in research, learning and teaching and engagement.
