University of Melbourne

University of Melbourne Homepage

Established in 1853, the University of Melbourne is a public-spirited institution that makes distinctive contributions to society in research, teaching and engagement.

The University of Melbourne aims to be one of the finest universities in the world.  Growing Esteem is the University's strategy for achieving high regard and for making a distinctive contribution to society.  The strategy is conceived with the metaphor of a triple helix (research, teaching and engagement); three strands of core activities, each sharply focused and well-resourced, and all mutually supportive.

The first strand – research – is crucial to the University's mission, by making a significant contribution to the accumulation of knowledge. Emphasis in research at the University is placed on strength and depth across a number of disciplines, ensuring strong performance in international rankings and national benchmarking measures.

The second strand – learning and teaching – includes the University's curriculum, at undergraduate, graduate and research higher degree levels. Since the introduction of the Melbourne Model, learning at the University is characterised by six broad, three-year undergraduate degrees, followed by the option to enroll in a professional graduate program, a research higher degree, or to go directly into employment.

The final strand – engagement – encompasses interaction between the University and the wider community at local, national and international levels. This includes knowledge partnerships, international programs, interactions with alumni and advancement activities, and is crucial to the University's public-spirited and internationally-engaged character.

The triple helix strands are supported by a series of enablers; our people, infrastructure, planning, administration, resources, repositories of scholarly information and communications and marketing.

Students usually take 4 classes each semester.  You must take from 37.5 - 50 points in a semester. The institution suggests that students pick 6 classes to be approved and then make a final selection based on the those classes after arrival.


While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
