University of Melbourne

Victoria - Australia


Founded in 1853 two years after Victoria separated from New South Wales and the discovery of rich deposits of gold, the University was established to the north of Melbourne.

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.

We have seven campus locations across Melbourne and rural Victoria, including the Parkville campus. Only a short walk from Melbourne's city centre, we welcome visitors and invite you to explore our unique cultural, architectural and landscape features and facilities.

The University is home to some of Australia's leading outreach education bodies which actively promote links between countries and enhance cross-cultural understanding through seminars, exhibitions, short-courses, international internships and leadership programs.
