Big city university

The University of Melbourne is an internationally recognised research intensive university with a strong tradition of excellence in teaching and research. Established in 1853, it is Australia’s second oldest university. It offers broad undergraduate degrees and reputable graduate programs.
Melbourne is often ranked among the most livable cities in the world, and with a strong commitment to the best brunch food and coffee culture in the world, it would seem quite student friendly! Furthermore, you find you have a ‘home-away-from-home’ in Melbourne, as the city is home to a large international community, with Mandarin, Greek, Italian and Vietnamese being among the most common languages spoken in the city (other than that refreshing Aussie English).
