The experience


There’s more to university than just going to class and studying for exams! Make the most of your time on campus by taking advantage of all that the University of Melbourne has to offer.


Clubs can be an integral part of your student experience and a great way to meet like-minded people. There are more than 200 clubs to choose from, so you’re guaranteed to find one that matches your interests.

The Design Student Society (DES) is a great place to start. DES runs events open to all Bachelor of Design students, from a first-year O-Week camp to themed parties, free pizza lunches, boat cruises, trivia nights and many other smaller events. DES is organised by a committee of current students. You’ll have the chance to network with students from other year levels, get involved and receive academic and social support.

Design and Environments Industry Night

The Design and Environments Industry Night, hosted by the Design Student Society (DES), is the perfect opportunity for you to build strong personal and professional connections with companies from Melbourne and around Australia.

You’re encouraged to ask company representatives about their career pathways and current projects, as well as sharing your own career ambitions, discussing potential graduate pathways and exchanging contact information. The evening includes an address from a guest presenter, as well as private presentations from a selection of our guest companies.

Your city

From the graphic design on billboards and traffic signs to the design of cities by urban planners, civil engineers, architects and landscape architects, our world is created and choreographed by designers. Today, Melbourne is internationally recognised as one of the world’s most liveable cities. When it comes to finding a city to study in, it doesn’t get much better than Melbourne.

Your facilities

The Melbourne School of Design building at Parkville houses a state-of-the-art fabrication workshop as well as two full-sized galleries where your work will be exhibited.
