We are the highest-ranked university in Australia and 32 in the world (The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018). We are Australia's leading research university, with more than 100 research centres and institutes, and research expenditure that is second only to that of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia's national science agency. No Australian university is rated higher for employer reputation, we rank seventh among employers worldwide (QS Graduate Employ-ability Rankings 2018). Our renowned academic staff includes leaders in business, government and community, as well as Nobel laureates and Rhodes scholars. Our unique curriculum, known as the Melbourne Model, is designed to give you a wider understanding of the world beyond your degree.It begins with an undergraduate (bachelors) degree. Over three years, you'll develop a deep understanding of a particular study area - your major. You'll also study subjects from outside your core study area. We call this breadth, and it allows you to tailor your course to fit your passions and career ambitions. Or you can simply explore something you've always been curious about.Following your undergraduate degree, you can enter the workforce or progress to a specialised graduate degree. Take advanced courses in professional fields such as law, engineering, medicine, architecture and teaching, or join our researchers in shifting the boundaries of human knowledge. Our latest career outcomes survey shows that three to five years after graduation, 97 per cent of undergraduate and 98 per cent of postgraduate students are in employment (excluding those not available for work and studying).
