Learning Experience

At Melbourne, you learn in the real world with internships, leadership experiences and volunteering all offered to our undergraduate students. Some of the most exciting discoveries are made outside the classroom, which is why we encourage you to make practical learning part of your Melbourne experience. We also want to know who our students are. So as part of your transition to University, you will meet one-on-one with a specialist Student Connect adviser to talk about what University is all about, why you’re here, and where you want to go. We’ll inspire and support you to achieve your best.

Fees for international graduate students:

We offer a large range of scholarships and support services for international students, too.
