THE
MELBOURNE
MODEL

A DIFFERENT WAY
OF THINKING
The University of Melbourne offers a
flexible, progressive degree opportunity.
Our degrees aren’t like most others you
will find in Australia. They are aligned with
those offered by many top institutions
worldwide – which means more
opportunities for you.

In a competitive market, having both an


undergraduate and a higher-level graduate
qualification helps our students stand out
from the rest.

You’ll start with one of our undergraduate


degrees. You can then choose to join the
workforce, or specialise at graduate level.
During your time with us, you'll be able
to study at partner institutions across
the world. There, as in the employment
market, your degree path will be
recognised and understood.

We want you to create your own unique


Melbourne experience, with the power to
choose your direction and keep exploring
new options. This is important in a world
where careers are changing fast and
employers value independent thinking.
We also want you to be able to take
advantage of our knowledge precincts and
partnerships, and to connect with brilliant
minds who can offer you new perspectives.

Few people graduating today will stay


in the same industry forever. With our
degrees, you will build the right skills and
global networks to adapt successfully.

AFTER YOUR DEGREE


SAMPLE PATHWAYS
Bachelor of Biomedicine (Honours) →
PhD in Microbiology and Immunology

Melbourne is home to several world-


leading research institutes. Research
specialists in Immunology join the fight
against antibiotic-resistant superbugs,
cancers and other threats to life.

Bachelor of Biomedicine → Master of


Engineering (Biomedical)

Modern health outcomes are increasingly


dependent on thinkers who can combine
knowledge of biology and engineering.
Graduates of Biomedical Engineering could
work on developing new drug therapies;
building artificial organs, limbs, heart
valves and bionic implants to replace
lost function; or growing living tissues to
replace failing organs.

another country and learn to speak

study Arts, but take a breadth subject

productions are famous hothouses for
up-and-coming talent, and there are
plenty of opportunities to contribute and
grow through our student-led groups.
Many of our alumni recount late nights
talking philosophy or working on a pitch
with a new uni friend as their favourite
university experiences.

It also means that when it's time to


join the workforce, you’ll be ready
to participate in cross-functional,
multicultural teams – which makes
you an asset, because diverse teams

at work.Q

MELBOURNE CHANCELLOR’S
SCHOLARSHIP

The Melbourne Chancellor’s Scholarship


is awarded to talented undergraduate
students in recognition of their
outstanding academic achievement
during their Australian Year 12 or
International Baccalaureate (IB).

“Receiving the Chancellor's Scholarship


has given me a sense of security leading
into university – I can pursue my academic
goals and various interests without
the added stress of finances and of an
uncertain future hanging over my head.
I am also very grateful for the added
freedom to pursue a foreign exchange
opportunity thanks to the contribution
of the scholarship."

NON-SCHOOL LEAVERS AND
MATURE-AGE STUDENTS

The University welcomes an application


from you, even if you left school some
time ago and haven't undertaken recent
tertiary study. Students who aren’t
coming to uni directly from school are
generally classed as ‘mature-age’ or
‘non-school leaver’ applicants. These
students bring a diversity of experience
and perspective that adds greatly to the
peer-to-peer experience of study under
the Melbourne Model.

Some of our students return to gain a


degree after raising children, or hope
to change career. Others just weren’t
ready for uni when they left high school,
but have gained relevant life experience
and have found a new direction they’d
like to pursue. So many people return
to Melbourne later in life that you're
unlikely to be the only mature-aged
student in the class.

There are many ways to determine if


you’re ready, and if necessary, gain the
additional skills you’ll need to tackle
study and qualify for entry. Chat to our
staff at Stop 1 (see opposite page) to find a
path that’s right for you.

This kind of study can have its own


challenges, so we offer advice and
support once you get here, including
networking events run by the dedicated
University of Melbourne Mature-Age
Student Club.
