      The University of Melbourne is the number one school in Australia and has rightfully earned this title. The main Parkville campus is beautiful – it’s breathtaking to just take a walk through the gardens or a look at the architecture of the old arches. In terms of student life, there are many clubs and societies to become a member of. The student union is always holding free events where students can listen to live music, attend BBQs or even learn how to cook something new. There’s something for everyone and many opportunities to branch out of your comfort zone. Most athletic services and facilities cost money but students are able to use the pool for free most mornings before 11 a.m. There are also a wide range of location options while studying on campus. Coming to the University of Melbourne as a post grad and having done my undergraduate degree elsewhere, I do have to say that there is often a large lack of administrative organization that can be frustrating to deal with. Be prepared to be confused while registering for classes. Otherwise, this is a great university to study at and would recommend it to others!

      As a current grad student of Unimelb, I can vouch for this place. My experience studying in this university has been great so far, and if you are looking to pursue your graduate education in Australia, Unimelb must be on the list. Here are some reasons why 1. Unimelb has great access to research materials (in addition to the useful readings they provide) 2. The tutors are well read and conduct lessons in a very professional and sophisticated manner 3. There are academic skills teams that help you hone your english skills and you can seek help anytime during your semester. All in all, this university works very well for international student who would like to move ahead in their career. Post grads are well prepped for the work force and you can be assured that you are under safe hands. Apart from the academic side, there are over 200 clubs for students. You have an array of interests to choose from, and it is a fantastic way to make new friends and increase your social circle. You will meet people from different walks of life, and have opportunities for knowledge exchange.
      Getting educated in the one of the top universities in Australia means the ‘real’ deal. You would have to work harder to secure better grades, but at the end of it, its all worth it. The key is to stay in touch with your tutors, and and ask questions if you are unsure of something. And don’t worry too much, because, in Unimelb, we are a family, and we will stand by and help each other. Whether you are an Indian, Singaporean or Malaysian, there are clubs and societies where you can get to know people from your own culture. There is free food, yoga and even counselling sessions to ease you off during exam periods!

      Join Unimelb, and you wouldn’t regret it!

      Unimelb has variety of student services available; students can seek help in different areas be it academic or non-academic. The academic support provided for students include essay drop-in sessions where staff helps to review students’ written work and ensure correct structure, grammar and tenses used. They also provide advice for students who have difficulty managing their studies and extra-curricular commitments. The non-academic side includes counselling sessions to provide assurance for students who have welfare issues – such as feeling disconnected from other people or feeling unhappy in general. Moreover, Unimelb student union initiates maintaining-good-welfare BBQ session for students to mingle and have fun together.
      Bachelor of Commerce in Unimelb provides lots of support academically for students. There are consultation periods where students can drop-by and ask questions when they need clarification with any concepts mentioned during classes. If the tutors are kind, they will even be willing to schedule a time beforehand and provide you with one-to-one consultation. Closer to the examination period, teaching staff would have longer consultation times so that all students can get their questions answered. However, lecturers do expect highly of their students and hence, they can sometimes go over lecture slides quickly without elaborating the points as much. Thus, it is important to ask questions if you’re unsure – they will help you.

      My experience in this uni was quite good as there are a diverse group of students so it was interesting to be able to learn about different cultures. The administration is quite helpful as well, especially when it comes to selecting your units. The facilities are great but some of them come at an extra cost like the gym. There are so many study spaces all around the different buildings in the university which is a plus as the common study area’s are usually full. Overall, I enjoyed my time at UniMelb and I felt that the guidance by the lecturers and tutors would help me in securing a job in the future!
