Study in the heart of Melbourne

Situated in the heart of it all, the Melbourne experience within and beyond our breathtaking grounds is second to none. Tram to your class holding the perfect coffee. Sweat it out in our gym and pool. Duck into a shopping laneway or exhibition with a friend. And end your day on a rooftop overlooking the city skyline or among the crowds at the MCG. At Melbourne, you’re perfectly positioned to work and play hard.

And if you’re lucky enough to venture further afield to one of our specialised campuses across Victoria, you’ll still be in the heart of the action, joining a thriving knowledge hub with world-class facilities at your fingertips.
