Located on the city side of the University’s Parkville campus, we are just a short walk to the CBD, the famous Queen Victoria Market, and a host of cafes, restaurants, shops, theatres, galleries and bars. Whilst you’re studying in Melbourne, we ensure a supportive environment for all students and offer a range of enrichment activities, including a student mentoring program, wellbeing services and academic skills support.


    The university has a student-led representative body - the Indigenous Graduate Student Association (IGSA) – who look to support graduate coursework and research students, enable collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and staff and encourage potential future Indigenous graduate students.

    “Attending the MGSE is a highly social experience. The teaching staff are passionate and engaging and cultivate a real community. Due to the relatively small size of each cohort,  it’s easy to get to know other people in the course. The facilities also provide a variety of spaces for independent or group study and you’re always bound to spot a familiar face whether it be teaching staff or someone from class.”
