Bold approach to curriculum

We believe you shouldn’t have to choose between your career ambitions and your passions, our breadth study program allows you to follow your curiosity and indulge in more than 100 areas of study. Why not build on your musical performance skills, while working toward a career in medicine? Or blend your commerce studies with a touch of wine making?

I can’t say how much I have enjoyed the Making Movies subject. For a person who thought I’d have to give up on film after settling on a different study area, doing breadth at the VCA has made me even more passionate!

Be in the heart of it all

When you study at Melbourne, you’ll make Australia’s most liveable city your home. Our Parkville and Southbank campuses are nestled on the outskirts of the city’s CBD, so you can easily jump on a tram to class holding the perfect coffee, catch a gig, or go out to dumplings in Chinatown. That is, if you really feel like leaving campus with our own weekly farmer’s market, Axil Coffee Roasters (one of Melbourne’s finest), a gym, pool and great food options right on your doorstep.

Go beyond the classroom

A degree at Melbourne isn’t solely about sitting in a lecture theatre. In fact, some of our best study opportunities involve getting off campus, on the road or in the field. You’ll have the opportunity to go on exchange or study abroad, take part in research projects, field studies or build strong industry networks with coveted internship placements.
