    University of Melbourne Admission Decision

    Successful applicants are informed about the admission decision within 2 to 4 weeks via email along with instructions on how to accept the offer and enrol in the university. The offer could be conditional or unconditional.

    In case of a conditional offer, admission is only confirmed when a student fulfills all the requirements by submitting necessary documents. This type of offer is usually given to students who are still in the final year of their study and whose results for English proficiency test scores are not yet declared.

    In the case of an unconditional offer, admission to the University of Melbourne is confirmed immediately. To confirm the enrollment, international students have to pay the tuition fees depending upon whether they received a scholarship or not. If the scholarship covers health insurance, then universities apply for it on your behalf. Otherwise, students have to arrange for a policy by themselves.

    International students can also defer their studies by a semester or year by consulting respective departments. Unsuccessful applicants can request feedback from the university which will help them increase chances of admission if they choose to apply again here.

    Visa Requirements for International Students

    Before applying for the visa, students must ensure that they have received an offer of study, submitted their acceptance and payment agreement, and received a Confirmation of Enrollment.

    Some of the documents required for applying for the Australian student visa are:

    Ranked as one of the best Australian universities, the University of Melbourne is a great destination to study abroad. It has a huge number of international students from 130 different countries, contributing to the diversity within the campus.

    With a fairly good acceptance rate, it is easy to secure admission at the University of Melbourne, provided you have an excellent academic record and a thirst for knowledge. Students are advised to keep a track of the deadlines for admission and are also required to fulfill the eligibility for the visa within the stipulated period of time.

    From the beginning, I have felt at home at the college. The nature of the university is unique and I have found that the faculty and admin really care, not only about my current education but also future employment, offering me so many opportunities. Also, the stunning campus takes my breath away every day on my way to class.

    Scholarship :

    I am provided with a wide range of scholarships to support my study at Melbourne Business School. The scholarships encourage diversity, provide opportunity and reward talent. Thus I am automatically considered for a scholarship when I applied for the college.

    #1 in Australia, #32 in the world, gotta get the prestige, my friend. But in all seriousness, I chose UNIMELB because with the course I'm doing it offered lectures at hospitals and therefore hands-on experience in an undergrad doctors degree.

    I have always wanted to do biomedicine, with the end goal being med. Melbourne uni had prestige and had proximity to me as opposed to other universities which made the decision a no brainer as it meant I could go to 8 am lectures and not have to wake up at 5 am.

    It's the closest university to my house and also has international accreditation. Also renowned university for STEM and agricultural sciences. It was probably the hardest course to get into Australia, but financially it was the best choice for me.
