The support Melbourne offers students – from housing advice, career and employability information, study assistance, disability and counselling – is one reason why Melbourne students are more likely to complete their degree than those at any other Australian university (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Report 2017).

With our communities of interest – including places of worship, the student union Queer Space, and Murrup Barak for Indigenous students – everyone feels welcome.
