Melbourne has a reputation for being artsy and slightly alternative, with a more casual ambience than bright and beautiful Sydney. It has a great deal to offer culturally, with countless cinemas, theatres and galleries and an active live music scene. Cheap and tasty cuisine from around the world is plentiful thanks to Melbourne’s diverse population. The city's education providers are equally spread out, so there is no one area known for its dense student population. In Melbourne, you can study just about any course you can think of. While Melbourne is not renowned for specialising in one particular field or another, different institutions will have their own strengths and priorities.
