University 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.

Master's Programmes



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


The curriculum features six broad, three-year undergraduate degrees, characterised by both disciplinary depth and academic breadth. These Bachelors prepare students for direct employment or further study, whether in a professional graduate program or a research higher degree.

Melbourne graduate programs differ significantly from undergraduate programs in their depth and level of specialisation, preparing students for specific professions or research studies. They need to address an increased diversity in student circumstances and therefore require flexibility in the Universitys mode of delivery.


A pioneering research university the University of Melbourne is a leading Australian research university, with research expenditure second only to that of the CSIRO, and the largest cohort of research students in Australia.

The University attracts and cultivates the best and brightest researchers from around the world. We collaborate with industry, other institutions and research organisations, the community, government and not-for-profit organisations to achieve positive research outcomes with global impact.


The University of Melbourne Health Service provides health care for both local and international students, staff and their dependents. This web site is not intended to replace a face-to-face consultation with a medical professional, nor does this service provide e-mail access to medical professionals.
