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.

    Dookie campus for a semester. It is the best decision
I have ever made. The friends and contacts I have made
 here will be with me for life. I have also been able to get
 a better understanding of the industry and really apply

     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.

“As an international student, studying
at a world-standard university gives
me diverse cultural perspectives that
enrich my life. Highlights of my first
year in Design were:
• Travelling to Shanghai with a group
  of fellow students to compete in the
  Tongji Construction Festival
• Volunteering in the Cultural
  Collections Program at the
  Architecture, Building
  and Planning Library
• Getting to know numerous enthusiastic
  friends, especially those who were in
  the same design studios as me."
