The University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne (Unimelb) is based in Parkville, the inner city of Melbourne. We often get comments about the beautiful main campus, in case you get a chance to attend an open day.

Melbourne University has simplified some of its undergraduate degrees compared to other universities. There are plenty of majors available via these courses (like Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, etc) and therefore, we have a lot of reviews for these areas.

Looking through the reviews of the uni by students, we often hear:
it's important for undergraduates to really try and get an idea of their major and choose it wisely;
attend lectures and tutes and participate to get the most out of the experience and to get a better mark;
keep up to date / don't fall behind;
Some recommend considering practical experience outside out uni.

Read through the reviews below to drill into further details.
