Graduate Degree Packages and new scholarships announced
The University is delighted to announce additions to the Melbourne offering which will provide more certainty and create new opportunities for students.
From 2019, high-achieving students who have a firm idea about their career direction and who obtain the required ATAR will be able to enrol upfront for both their bachelors and graduate degrees. Graduate Degree Packages will be offered for a curated set of popular undergraduate and graduate combinations, including Science/Engineering, Design/Architecture, Commerce/Law, Biomedicine/Physiotherapy and Arts/Education. In some cases, students will be guaranteed a place in their graduate degree if they pass their undergraduate degree; in other cases, there will be further hurdle requirements, such as a minimum WAM.
Please note: These packages will be available to students commencing their undergraduate study from 2019 onwards and will appear in the forthcoming VTAC guide.
To increase access to our courses and attract additional talented, capable and diverse students, we are also pleased to launch the following new scholarships:
- Melbourne Principals’ Scholarships will be offered to one student from each Victorian school nominated by their principal for their excellent academic record and strong record of contribution to the school or wider community
- Melbourne Humanitarian Scholarships will assist talented students who have applied for asylum in Australia
- Melbourne Indigenous Merit Scholarships will support talented graduate students of Indigenous Australian descent, and
- Melbourne National Merit Scholarships will be awarded to students with an ATAR of 99+ from states and territories other than Victoria, to assist with the costs of moving to Melbourne
