Breadth of learning

A Melbourne undergraduate degree provides you with the freedom to explore subjects outside your core study area – we call this breadth. Breadth allows you to tailor your degree to fit your individual passions and career ambitions. You may choose to take a single subject in something you’ve always been curious about; or take a sequence of three or more subjects called a breadth track.

Industry internships and networks

From undergraduate to graduate study, you’ll find opportunities to gain practical industry experience with leaders in your field. Our internship, student placement, research and volunteer programs will help you to build strong professional networks, consolidate your skills and choose the career path that suits you.
