Study with your peers locally

Study Hubs offer a collaborative space for you to study and connect with other students, local staff and alumni until you can travel to Melbourne. Study Melbourne Hubs in Shanghai and Malaysia (along with India and Vietnam locations coming soon) have been established by the Victorian Government and are open to international students from all Victorian education providers. Additional University of Melbourne Study Hubs located in Shenzhen and Nanjing are now available for our own students. The Study Hubs have been purposefully designed and equipped with a range of study spaces – both individual and shared, as well as social areas where students can take a break and collaborate and connect with others.
