Supporting internationalisation

The University of Melbourne is an internationally engaged university with a global outlook and growing global reach.

Advancing Melbourne 2030 will guide us through the next decade. Globally, we aspire to lead, convene and collaborate through strategic partnerships on a global scale. We aspire to become a hub of knowledge and research for the Asia Pacific region, to lead on global challenges where we can make a significant contribution to the world, and develop centers of excellence that are global in reach, ambition and impact. A priority is to strengthen relationships with a global community of scholars, partners and alumni, with a curriculum that is informed by a global range of perspectives.

The University  has developed engagement plans for three countries in the Asian region:  India, Indonesia and China. Engaging with India 2020 - 2024 and Engaging with Indonesia 2020 - 2024 were launched in 2019, and Engaging with China 2020 - 2024 in 2020. These plans articulate our relationships, collaborations and commitment to building a shared future with these countries for the long term.
