The University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne (Unimelb) is based in Parkville, the inner city of Melbourne. We often get comments about the beautiful main campus, in case you get a chance to attend an open day.

Melbourne University has simplified some of its undergraduate degrees compared to other universities. There are plenty of majors available via these courses (like Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, etc) and therefore, we have a lot of reviews for these areas.

Looking through the reviews of the uni by students, we often hear:
it's important for undergraduates to really try and get an idea of their major and choose it wisely;
attend lectures and tutes and participate to get the most out of the experience and to get a better mark;
keep up to date / don't fall behind;
Some recommend considering practical experience outside out uni.

Read through the reviews below to drill into further details.

The positive thing is I can learn any other subject outside my course, which is breadth.

The negative thing is the course is quite hard.

The course is ok. I'm neutral about whether I'd recommend it

They have continuous module tests, which is good but at the same time stressed me to understand the course in short period of time

My advice to future students is: Enjoy the course with your heart! You'll love it 👍🏻

Gives you general exposure to the field of science. this means that you can explore all the different areas of science including Chem, physics, bio, computer science, geology, botany, etc. You're not locked into a specific field yet since the degrees is general. The drawback is that it takes longer to find a job, because after doing your three year undergraduate degree you will likely need to do a postgraduate degree before you can find a job

My advice to future students is: Make good friends, friends that will motivate you to study, and friends that have morals and principles.

Upon reflection, I really liked this course. It provides an excellent opportunity to learn understand a major area of science. Be conscious that you'll likely need to do further study in order to begin in the industry, therefore you'll need to keep motivated.

My advice to future students is: You can do anything if you apply yourself

The course is solid. There's plenty of interesting and challenging subjects. It does require a fairly large commitment with contact hours.

My advice to future students is: Make sure you plan ahead with revision and with your major.

As with most undergraduate courses, content can be repetitive and uninteresting in the earlier and broader stages of the coursework in an attempt to cater for the large volume of students.

Positivity comes longer term when the course engages students with a range of different subjects where content becomes more suited to the individual

My advice to future students is: Stick through first and second year with open mindedness and a willingness to be committed to particular academia despite any potential disinterest
