Experience one of the world’s most livable cities

Our Parkville campus is located on the doorstep of Melbourne – Australia’s cultural hub. Melbourne consistently ranks among the world’s most livable cities and is contemporary, multicultural and safe. The coffee is great too!

Our international students choose to live in residential colleges or in one of Melbourne’s surrounding suburbs. Both options place you close to campus and are only a few tram stops away from exploring the city’s hidden laneways and eclectic galleries.

Find out if you're eligible to apply

Our different programs have different entry requirements, but to apply for a Master by coursework you need to have completed an undergraduate degree within any discipline and meet the individual requirements of the course that you’re applying for. You won’t need to take a standardised test.

Having a background in the degree or course you’d like to study isn’t required, but it can help you apply for a shorter version of the degree. Our programs are tailored to match your level of experience in the discipline.
