The University of Melbourne is a vibrant institution with a reputation for excellence built over 150 years. Our success has been achieved by insisting on international excellence and among our many scholars of international standing are three winners of the Nobel Prize. Our researchers are at the forefront of international scholarship in fields as diverse as human rights, art conservation and nanotechnology.
In a dynamic academic environment students will learn to study effectively in groups and to communicate knowledge in new ways and forms. They also have the flexibility of choosing their subjects from a broad range of disciplines allowing them to diversify and fully explore their interests.
The main Parkville campus is a unique blend of traditional and contemporary culture. It offers students a range of galleries, theatre and entertainment venues, bookshops, retail stores, cafes and restaurants all within walking distance from Melbourne’s city centre.
They will find themselves mixing with students from over 100 countries and our student clubs offer something for everyone. There is also an extensive range of sport and recreational activities.
The University has developed an award-winning student support facility encompassing arrival, housing, counselling and learning support and careers and health related services. Exchange and Study Abroad students will also have access to the Melbourne Welcome and orientation programs.

Enrollment Requirements: All exchange students are required to complete at least 50% of their classes in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Undergraduate students are only permitted to take a maximum of two graduate subjects. Some graduate subjects are not available to exchange students. Graduate subjects are designated by the first numeral of the subject code being 9 e.g. ELEN90032.

It is imperative that students organize their housing early. As soon as the admissions application has been submitted students should begin to organize housing. They will need their Application ID (Student Number) and can begin as soon as they have received this number. Students who wish to receive assistance to find housing should contact as the University of Melbourne has a staff member dedicated to helping study abroad and exchange students.

The vacancy rate in Melbourne’s rental market is currently very low and students are encouraged to research and secure housing early to ensure they get the option that best suits their needs. Housing for students can be broadly categorized into residential college housing and “off-campus” housing which is student housing, in some cases across the road from the campus, or private rental accommodation in surrounding suburbs. It is best that they begin their research online, which will have the most up-to-date information on housing options, including application deadlines:

Residential Colleges
The twelve colleges and halls of residence at the University of Melbourne are based on the Oxford/Cambridge tradition. Most colleges offer a single furnished room including a bed, desk, cupboard, telephone, and computer connection. Bathroom facilities, common room and computer facilities are provided on a communal basis. The colleges do not offer self-catering facilities, but provide most meals, including vegetarian. For further information please refer to: .

Students interested in residential college accommodation are advised to research individual colleges carefully as each has its own unique character and atmosphere. Places for Exchange/Study Abroad students in residential colleges are, however, highly competitive. Students must lodge their application online via OASIIS ( by the prescribed deadline.

Student Housing
The University maintains a list of student apartments and hostels off-campus but nearby (some are as close as across the road). For Exchange and Study Abroad students who are in Melbourne for one semester this may be a convenient choice as they are generally furnished, self-catering and student focussed. They are generally a cheaper option than the residential colleges. and scroll down to SAEX Housing Packages.

Entry Visa
All exchange students are eligible to apply for a student visa for a semester or year of study. Exchange students are classified as a non-award student (Student visa sub class 575).

It is extremely important that you check the requirements of the student visa for your nationality. For all information on applying for a student visa please consult the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) website -

Overseas Student Health Cover
It is an Australian Government requirement that all international students must have health insurance, known as OSHC, from an approved Australian provider. No confirmation of enrolment documents will be issued until a student has either purchased Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) through the University of Melbourne or provided evidence of having this insurance.
