The University of Melbourne

Postera Crescam Laude


The University of Melbourne has an outstanding reputation for excellence in teaching and research. Independently-published world rankings consistently place the university as a leader in higher education in Australia, the Asia Pacific and around the globe.

Founded in 1853 two years after Victoria separated from New South Wales and the discovery of rich deposits of gold, the University was established to the north of Melbourne. It is Australia's second oldest university and the oldest in Victoria.

University of Melbourne followed the ideals of mid-nineteenth century universities of secular education, and with an emphasis on modern languages and literature, mathematics and natural science alongside classics and ancient history.

From these foundations Melbourne's university developed, not always smoothly, into new areas, offering Law from 1857, Engineering and Medicine from 1852. Melbourne University admitted women in 1881, and Julia ‘Bella’ Guerin became the first woman to graduate from an Australian university (BA, 1883) . Early debates about the proper role of the university learning, and the degree to which it should be shielded from commercial and practical issues gave way slowly to a university that by World War Two saw itself as integral to the nation building through its capacity for research in the social, natural and medical sciences. UniMelb also awarded the first Australian PhD in 1947.

During this period, the body of students expanded from an initial 16 students, to 2,000 by the end of World War I, to 6,000 by the end of World War II, and with the increasing weight of numbers brought an increasing influence over public debates, exploring public questions and hosting critical political and social debates. The Australian academic community has been enriched in the past fifty years with the addition of new universities, an international community of students, and increasing partnerships with and engagement with the wider local, national and internal communities.

A proud patron of the Arts, we are home to over 30 stunning galleries, museums, historical and cultural collections. University of Melbourne host a broad range of cultural programs throughout the year, contributing to Melbourne’s lively artistic and cultural life.
