University of Melbourne was established in 1853 and is a public institution. More than 46,000 students, including over 12,200 students from 129 countries, take courses at Melbourne. The University launched the ground-breaking Melbourne Model in 2007 and there is a strong demand for the new courses with student retention rates remaining the highest in Australia.
The Melbourne Model introduces undergraduate programs characterized by both breadth and depth, followed by a graduate professional degree, a research higher degree or entry directly into employment. The innovative structure of the Melbourne Model allows the distinctive Melbourne experience to be combined with the best of North American traditions and emerging Asian and European educational practices.
