Ivy-covered walls, state-of-the-art facilities, and a five-minute walk to hundreds of restaurants and cafes -- this describes the University of Melbourne, one of Australia's leading institutions. Situated in the heart of the city, the University maintains its own clearly defined community and campus. More than 30,000 students and nearly 2,000 teaching staff provide ample opportunity to develop new friendships and become integrated in Australian academic and student life.

The comprehensive nature of the University of Melbourne is ideal for integrating study abroad into your academic program. Faculties of Architecture, Arts, Economics and Commerce, Education, Engineering, Land and Food Resources, Music and Science are all popular among study abroad students, and faculties like Medicine, Dentistry, Health Science, Law, and Veterinary Science contribute greatly to the research profile of the University and may provide you with an opportunity to access courses that you can't take in the US.  The Faculty of Arts alone has more than 400 subjects in 40 departments. Add to that other popular Faculties like Science, Engineering, and Commerce and Economics and the hardest part will be deciding what to take.
