With a proud history of innovation and forward-thinking, the University of Melbourne is a contemporary, thriving, and dynamic community. Students can study at the university's founding campus in Parkville, in the heart of Melbourne, or one of the university's six specialist campuses across Victoria.
While the University of Melbourne has extensive library resources and modern tuition spaces, it also offers students over 100 research centres, galleries, museums, performance and exhibition spaces, creative studios, a 3D printing lab, a fully functioning veterinary clinic and even a vineyard. Best of all, students will learn and be inspired by true global leaders who write the textbooks and not just teach from them.
The university runs a Student Life program to make sure students feel welcome, engaged and part of the community so they can thrive during their time at Melbourne. Students can also make the most of the excellent support services throughout their studies and even when they graduate.
Students moving to Melbourne will make memories that last a lifetime in Australia's cultural, restaurant and sports capital. Melbourne is consistently ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit as one of the world's most liveable cities, with a wealth of cultural, leisure and sporting facilities to enjoy, many of which offer discounts for students. There are more cafes, bars and restaurants per person than any other city in the world. This means students have lots of choice and places to meet with friends to unwind and experience Melbourne.
With students coming from over 160 different countries to study at Melbourne students will find themselves at the heart of one of the world's most culturally diverse student bodies. The whole city is extremely welcoming and friendly, while the university offers tailored help for students travelling to Australia for the first time so they can quickly get comfortable and make sense of the local culture and the university lifestyle.
