About the Scholarship:

According to the Times Higher Education World Institution Rankings for 2015–2016, the Institution of Melbourne is the highest-ranked university in Australia and ranks 334th overall in the world. Students at The University of Melbourne have the unique opportunity to combine a vibrant academic and social life on a beautiful campus with the attractions of Melbourne, which The Economist has ranked as the world’s most liveable city. This makes studying at The University of Melbourne a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students. Students can improve their employability and career management skills with the assistance of the Melbourne Careers Centre, which provides students with a selection of career programs and tools to choose from. In addition, the Centre works together with the faculties to include learning about career development within the course offerings of the academic institution.

Undergraduate students at Melbourne have the opportunity to participate in a variety of volunteer opportunities, leadership experiences, and internships. Because some of the most fascinating discoveries are made outside of the classroom, we strongly encourage you to incorporate hands-on learning into your time in Melbourne. This is because some of the most amazing discoveries are made outside of the classroom. In addition to this, we would be interested in learning a little bit about each of our pupils. You will have a one-on-one meeting with a specialized Student Connect adviser as part of your transition to university. During this meeting, you will explore what university is all about, why you are here, and where you want to go once you graduate. You can count on us to inspire and drive you to perform at your highest level. There are eleven academic institutions located on the site, several of which are research institutes. These institutes include the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, the Walter and Eliza Institute of Medical Research, and the Grattan Institute. University students have the opportunity to explore a broad range of topic areas before focusing their studies on a single discipline within their area of expertise. Furthermore, students will be guided by professors who will not only provide a fundamental comprehension of the inside programs but also of the outside activities, thereby providing them with a wide range of experience and information. These professors will not only provide a fundamental comprehension of the inside programs but also of the outside activities. In addition to this, the group is willing to assist children who are struggling academically by providing them with tutoring services.


There are almost 48,000 students registered, with 13,000 of them coming from different countries all over the world. In addition, the university regularly organizes cultural events such as performances in the theater and film, as well as stand-up comedy and public lectures. In addition, the establishment is affiliated with around two hundred other groups and societies, some of which include chess clubs, groups for women who work in science and engineering, and a society for chocolate enthusiasts. The former Melbourne Sports Union has been succeeded by the Melbourne University Sports Association in its current incarnation. In addition, the University has participated in a wide range of sports activities, some of which include national cycling competitions. In addition, the university established a Tennis Club, which is open to both its students and its staff members. The Accelerator Program at Melbourne University is designed to assist students in developing their existing skills further. The program includes on-stage connections with corporations, as well as public events and workshops. Feeder programs are also included. The topics covered in this training program include important challenges facing web solutions, technology, software, and medical devices and hardware. The accelerator program was given recognition on the University Business Incubator Index’s worldwide list of the top 25 incubators. In addition, Notable Alumni of Melbourne University include people like George Megalogenis (Political Commentator), Emeritus Professor Gillian Triggs (Human Rights Commissioner), and Julia Gillard (Former Prime Minister of Australia). Professor Ian H. Frazer is also among the Notable Alumni of Melbourne University (Leader of the Groundbreaking Gardasil Vaccine).


The weather in Melbourne is notoriously difficult to anticipate due to its variable oceanic climate that is moderate. This is primarily as a result of Melbourne’s location on the boundary between extremely hot inland areas and the cool Southern Ocean, which acts as a natural temperature regulator for the city. This difference in temperature is most noticeable during the spring and summer months, and it can lead to the production of highly powerful cold fronts if it persists for long enough. These cold fronts have the potential to bring about severe weather, including gale-force winds, violent thunderstorms, and hail, significant drops in temperature, and persistent precipitation. In the winter, Melbourne experiences temperatures that are lower than those of the state capitals of the other states that are located on the mainland of Australia. Although there have been records of temperatures as low as -2.8 degrees Celsius, snowfall is not very usual. Frost and fog are more likely to occur in Melbourne during the winter months. It is recommended that you carry a warm autumn coat, such as a “Canadian” one, rather than merely a windbreaker.
