Finest down under

Over the years, the University of Melbourne has established itself as one of the finest in Australia, if not the world. The University of Melbourne has a fantastic choice of residential halls and colleges, all on campus and only a five-minute tram ride from the City of Melbourne. Students who choose to reside in college enter into a way of life that enriches the university experience.

All of the residential colleges at the university of Melbourne are able to provide some form of financial assistance to students. Many scholarships have been made available thanks to the generous support of private benefactors and philanthropic bodies and they vary considerably in their terms and their conditions.

The easiest way to apply to the colleges is to use the online application. Alternatively, you can send your application by post to the College to which you are applying. You can download a .pdf version of the application form, complete it by hand and send it to an address, with four passport-sized photos and a cheque or bank draft for AU$25 made out to the college you are applying to. Or, you can contact the Intercollegiate Office on 61 3 9347 9320 or at to have an application form sent to your address. Courses offered include arts, economics and commerce, education, engineering, land and food resources, law, medicine, dentistry and health sciences, music, science and veterinary sciences.
