About the University of Melbourne

As one of the six original sandstone buildings, a member of the prestigious Group of Eight, and the oldest university in Victoria, the University of Melbourne has been ranked Australia’s leading university in its strategies to help graduates become well-rounded, thoughtful, and skilled professionals. 

Being a public research university that has associations with numerous well-regarded research institutes, Melbourne Uni has been contributing to society through this work in addition to providing an enriched teaching and learning environment. Through a proud tradition of excellence and achievement, Melbourne Uni aims for all its students to impact the world positively. Consistently ranked by The Times Higher Education as the best university in Australia, and #37 in the world, has attracted over 50,000 students from across 150 nationalities and has produced more notable alums than any other universities in Australia – Prime Ministers, Governor Generals, and Nobel Prize winners.

School Facilities

Melbourne Uni has eight campuses located across the state with the main university campus situated centrally in the north of the city’s CBD at Parkville. Prospective students enrolling on the University of Melbourne can look forward to walking the hallways of its campus centres around the original Old Quadrangle building, historically significant spaces alongside award-winning modern architecture and visiting the uni’s wide range of galleries as well as museums. The Parkville campus anchors an additional six specialist campuses located throughout Greater Melbourne and regional Victoria, as well as three innovation precincts in Melbourne’s CBD. 

The school’s innovation precincts offer every student a vast network of learning and research partnerships. These include world-renowned medical research institutes in the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct, creative and performing arts organisations in Melbourne’s Arts Precinct at Southbank, future developments in engineering and design at Fishermans Bend, and new developments in digital knowledge at Melbourne Connect. 

Popular Courses in the University of Melbourne

Melbourne Uni offers bachelor’s degrees across nine key disciplines, but what sets this university apart from the rest is its unique Melbourne Curriculum. Designed from the outset to offer focus and flexibility as well as breadth of learning, undergraduates are also required to study subjects outside of their core disciplines. 

The university believes this accurately reflects the changing world, allowing undergraduates to create individual and self-directed tertiary learning experiences. Ultimately, the curriculum creates an overall framework that connects students with the wider university community as opposed to just the faculty cohort.
