Melbourne Model – immerse yourself in a different way of thinking

The University of Melbourne’s degrees work a bit differently to those at most other Australian universities. They’re similar to those offered by many top institutions overseas in that you’ll start with an undergraduate degree, and can then choose to specialise at graduate level.

Why? We want you to create your own study path, with the power to choose your own direction and explore new options along the way. This is important in a world where careers are changing fast and employers value independent thinking.

Few people graduating today will stay in the same industry forever. With our degrees, you can build the right skills to adapt and to change successfully.
