I went to this university, but that's not the reason I'm giving it 5 stars. I wasn't always the greatest student;; I didn't even finish my degree. But that was my own fault. I was too young to be studying the course I was doing, and am planning to re-enrol in another course. However, it's undeniable that this university is a high ranking educational institute on the world's stage. The alumni consist of individuals who have made a serious contribution to society and it sets very high standards

This is Australia's leading university. I have many direct experiences with The University of Melbourne, and anyone giving it unfavourable reviews, is, in my opinion, suffering from sour grapes. It's a difficult university to get into and to maintain a place, but it does not discriminate on the basis of age, nationality, disability - or any of the other biases it's been accused of. If you get the marks to enter the university at whatever level, they will grant you a place. It's not based on any other kind of elitism - that idea is just non-sensical and non-factual. The university does take into account the circumstances of disadvantaged students by lowering the entry ATAR score for undergraduate degrees.

Heavy left wing feminist type university. Some good lecturers (who i feel sorry for) but some of the main the people who make the decisions are all 3rd wave feminists. Separate girls only courses with girl only lecturers - jobs only for female applicants. So much virtue signalling and political agendas being shoved down our throats.

Melbourne's main campus is located in Parkville, an inner suburb north of the Melbourne central business district, with several other campuses located across Victoria. Melbourne is a sandstone universityand a member of the Group of Eight, Universitas 21 and the Association of Pacific Rim Universities. Since 1872 various residential colleges have become affiliated with the university. There are 12 colleges located on the main campus and in nearby suburbs offering academic, sporting and cultural programs alongside accommodation for Melbourne students and faculty.
Melbourne comprises 11 separate academic units and is associated with numerous institutes and research centres, including the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research and the Grattan Institute. Amongst Melbourne's 15 graduate schools the Melbourne Business School, the Melbourne Law School and the Melbourne Medical School are particularly well regarded.
Four Australian prime ministers and five governors-general have graduated from the University of Melbourne. Nine Nobel laureateshave been students or faculty, the most of any Australian university.

The University of Melbourne was established by Hugh Childers, the Auditor-General and Finance Minister, in his first Budget Speech on 4 November 1852, who set aside a sum of £10,000 for the establishment of a university. The university was established by Act of Incorporation on 22 January 1853, with power to confer degrees in arts, medicine, laws and music. The act provided for an annual endowment of £9,000, while a special grant of £20,000 was made for buildings that year. The foundation stone was laid on 3 July 1854, and on the same day the foundation stone for the State Library Classes commenced in 1855 with three professors and sixteen students; of this body of students, only four graduated. The original buildings were officially opened by the Lieutenant Governor of the Colony of Victoria, Sir Charles Hotham, on 3 October 1855. The first chancellor, Redmond Barry (later Sir Redmond), held the position until his death in 1880.

The inauguration of the university was made possible by the wealth resulting from Victoria's gold rush. The institution was designed to be a "civilising influence" at a time of rapid settlement and commercial growth.
In 1881, the admission of women was a seen as victory over the more conservative ruling council.
The university's 150th anniversary was celebrated in 2003.
The Melbourne School of Land and Environment was disestablished on the first of January, 2015. Its agriculture and food systems department moved alongside veterinary science to form the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, while other areas of study, including horticulture, forestry, geography and resource management, moved to the Faculty of Science in two new departments.
