" Did the Bachelor of Science. Good in terms of quality of content, course etc. Did find lack of support in terms of applying for jobs, internships etc. But overall happy with my experience. Would recommend to students who aren't 100% set on what they want to do after leaving school, as the Melbourne Model helps you with those decisions. "

" Great university to study in with students and lecturers of all backgrounds. Classes are arranged in such a way that students learn and grasp theoretical concepts very strongly. It has been a good experience and it helps too that it is located near Melbourne's CBD, one of the most livable cities to live in in the world. "

" Handling the situation with COVID fairly well, haven't had on-campus classes due to this. Would probably give more data if I had more interaction with more people and see more about campus life, but they attempted to run some online programs too "

" The University of Melbourne is a fantastic learning environment, and its Faculty of Business and Economics is the best in Australia. I will always remember my time there fondly. It is full of smart people, amazing facilities and opportunities to network with the best employers in Australia. Whilst at university I did the Global Business Practicum where the university sent me to Hong Kong to work with a consulting company. It was the most amazing experience, and set me on the path to becoming a management consultant upon graduation. I also found that the teachers ran engaging classes and gave us interesting and challenging assignments. It is a world class education. "

" It has been a great experience studying at University of Melbourne, in terms of student support services and academic fields. During the pandemic, the school has been supported in students menta health as well as satisfi cation towards the online learning environments. It provides high quality of online courses and materials, also with studying virtually, it has been well organised in zoom sessions. In order to work with other students around the world virtually, setting breakout rooms and group assignments are helpful for students to be motivated to cooperate with each other. To be able to interact within discussions more thorough, online materials have been beneficial for further learning outcomes. In terms of choices of clubs and societies provided by the uni, there are a variety of clubs regarding interests, sports, cultural and habits. "
