Melbourne is a prestigious university with up-to-date theoretical knowledge, dedicated staff with quality teaching skills and a vibrant community.
I highly recommend the Melbourne Welcome Program - it's fun, you get to meet heaps of people and it's a great way to find out about the city and how to get around. My orientation experience was also great and everything was really well organised so that I could find out everything I needed to know within the first day.
I have always wanted to do Study Abroad and it's a great opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture. Studying in Melbourne has opened my eyes to what it's like to live in a big city and this is something that I really value.
It's great being on exchange at such a well known university - its location and facilities are excellent. I'm here for a whole year but it's just going much too fast. Going on exchange is a fantastic opportunity to discover a country like Australia which you may never have the chance of visiting again.
When I was leaving Denmark I was really excited at the prospect of meeting new people. It has been a really amazing and intense experience just because there are people here from all over the world and all different walks of life and so it is a great way to learn about other people. Everyone that I've talked to about the exchange experience says that they didn't want to go home and that a year just wasn't long enough. I know I will be really sad to leave but I know that I would love to come back and visit or hopefully work in Australia one day.
Go for it! I would never change what I've done. It's a huge investment and when you consider what else you gain from this, there is no question of its value. The whole experience has changed me. I'm more confident and wiser to the world outside of the US. Australia is a very easy transition from North America. It is foreign enough to feel new and exciting, yet familiar enough to ease you into a new lifestyle.
Despite coming from an expatriate family, and having spent several years studying in a boarding school in the UK, moving to Australia was quite a big step for me, but one that I am very grateful I took. The course is tough and the workload heavy, but the faculty is on your side the whole way. Now, at the start of my third year in Melbourne, I am certain I made the right decision.
The best thing about student life on campus is that there is always something happening, whether it's a free bbq or a protest march or a demonstration of a new union house play. During my course, uni has been a busy, vibrant, lively place, which is great.
I live at Queen's College on the Parkville campus. It's great, only a five minute walk to school. Coming from overseas, going to college was a great idea as it helped me to make lots of friends in different courses that I would never have had a chance to meet otherwise. There is the added bonus that meals are provided, which saves lots of time.
I love the social life in Melbourne. I live at International House which is fantastic - I've made so many friends there and there are events or activities on all the time. Unlike back home, you don't actually have to be good at a sport to participate - the other day I competed in an AFL (Australian Football League) match against another college - it was heaps of fun.
I have been involved in lots of activities organised by the Uni. I joined MUSEX (Melbourne University Study Abroad and Exchange Club) which organizes heaps of social events where you meet current international exchange students and Australian students who have come back from exchange. I have joined the baseball team here at UM and last week we won the silver medal at the University Games in Brisbane. This was great because UM won the entire event so we really celebrated.
Aside from being a really beautiful city, Melbourne is the most fun city I've spent time in. There is always something going on, and as I'm passionate about music and sport, it's the perfect place for me really.
I chose the University of Melbourne because of its prestige. I knew that it was one of the best and oldest universities in Australia. The fact that it was in the city of Melbourne was also a big factor in deciding to come here. I had heard that the city was very beautiful and had friendly people from many different nationalities living there - it is all true. I was good at chemistry and maths at school and also liked biology. The Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical and Biomolecular) combined all these subjects so I decided to do it. It was also a new course and seemed like an exciting opportunity to do something new and different.
I visited Melbourne and liked the city very much. The people are friendly and laid back and there is always something to do no matter what your taste is. Melbourne Uni also has a good reputation for Commerce. I liked the feel of the campus so I decided it would be a good idea to study here. The staff are friendly and passionate about their work, and the campus has a lot of facilities for students. The library resources are very good too.
What I enjoy the most at the University is the rapport that I have with the lecturers and tutors. They are all so passionate and enthusiastic about what they teach and that has really improved my learning. Also, they are so forthcoming and generous to their students and are prepared to go beyond their duties in order to give us a more well-rounded perspective on things.
The Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences is there to support all students and ensure that they get through the course with the best quality training. The commitment to ensuring students receive a first-class education in a world-class learning environment means that the work is always intellectually stimulating and fulfilling.
The VCA has definitely opened up another world to me. The teaching staff are amazing and the student relationships are very close. Even within VCA Art all the students are so unique, original and extremely friendly. It is a very open and progressive atmosphere, and a very inspiring environment to be learning in.
The School of Physiotherapy provides an almost family-type environment. We are a small faculty and this allows staff and students in the various year levels to become quite close. We have dedicated and approachable academic staff who really get to know the students and provide the best possible learning environment.
As the coordinator of health education programs at a major university, I was looking for a course which provided both the theory and practical skills required to successfully design curriculum for adults. My experiences at the University of Melbourne are something I will treasure. The staff here are not only exceptionally fine teachers - they also display a real spirit of concern. I've felt very much at home during my time here.
The cultural diversity amongst both international and local students adds to the relevance and challenge of activities undertaken and brings a truly global perspective to classes. I have found Melbourne to be an exciting, friendly and interesting city to live in and I also have the opportunity to explore more beautiful places in Australia.
An interesting aspect I found at the University of Melbourne is the mix of international students from around the world. I can learn a lot from my peers, from diverse ideas and experiences, which are all relevant and important to architectural learning.
I chose the University of Melbourne because of its standard and international reputation. The facilities available here are really impressive, and the education students receive is world-class. With a Melbourne University degree I know that I will easily find a job wherever I go around the world.
It was very easy to choose the University of Melbourne as it has an excellent reputation worldwide, and is up to date with new research and knowledge. I found the course of excellent quality, with a broad contribution from highly skilled lecturers and clinicians. After spending a year in this lovely city attending the University of Melbourne, it will be hard to leave this place!
The University of Melbourne was an obvious choice for me because of both the education and location. The landscape program is first-rate and gave me the skills and opportunity to pursue landscape architecture anywhere in the world, while Melbourne is a cosmopolitan, international city with a lot to offer.
Melbourne has so many different layers to explore, and as a filmmaker this is invaluable. The VCA gives you access to the best people in the industry, as staff, tutors and guest speakers.
