The experience


Melbourne: the world's most liveable city, and Australia's number 1 university

Melbourne attracts the best and brightest students and researchers and, with a history of over 160 years, we occupy a special place at the heart of our city’s cultural scene.

Join a club

The University of Melbourne experience is more than just lectures and study sessions - it has over 200 affiliated clubs and societies. Clubs are a great way to meet life-long friends, explore new interests and develop new skills. Clubs range from cultural, religious and political - to musical and recreational.

Travel the world

Our students have researched at Europe’s oldest university in Bologna through to learning about management in the fashion industry in Milan – all while enrolled in a University of Melbourne degree. Gain a competitive edge when you enter the workplace: employers are always looking for international experience.

World-class learning spaces

Arts West is the brand new home of the Bachelor of Arts, giving you access to world-class learning spaces, and equipping our academic staff with a new purpose-built teaching and research environment. The new spaces include a cinema- quality interactive theatre, media laboratory, and lecture and discursive spaces.

Get involved in leadership and volunteering

There are lots of opportunities to develop new skills and knowledge, make new friends, and enhance your resume.
