The University of Melbourne is a public university located in Melbourne, Victoria. Founded in 1853, it is the second oldest university in Australia and the oldest in Victoria. The main campus is located in Parkville, an inner suburb just north of the Melbourne CBD. The university also has several other campuses located across Victoria
..and that’s what Wikipedia says.
But seriously, you would’ve gone there if you wanted that type of information. But on the Melbourne Uni Blog, you’ll find out the student perspective, things that aren’t published in the mainstream forms of media, the things that really happen.
So the month is February, many students all around Australia are enjoying the last portion of their holidays. Most will be taking gap years, working full-time and pursuing further education after the completion of high school.
Some of these recent high school graduates will attend The University of Melbourne, thw This is why I thought February would be an appropriate month to start this website.
Now a few questions visitors of this site may have:
What is this site about?
Basically, I’m now an ex-student of The University of Melbourne, wanting to give both prospective and current students an idea of what life really is at this educational institution.
Of course, there’s the glossy brochures and open days which attempt to paint a positive picture of the university in your mind, so I’ll refrain from regurgitating any of that information in this blog.
Who are you?
I recently graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Commerce. That is all.
What kind of things will you post on here?
Basically everything I noticed in university. From course & racial stereotypes, fashion, hang out areas, sub-cultures, basically everything a student really notices when they attend the university.
Why are you doing this?
Back when I was in high school, university seemed like some sort of scary place where I’d feel lost and jaded. I often had the desire to know more about it and would ask many people from teachers at my school, to customers in my part-time job.
I hope to clear up some of the questions students usually have in regards to the university life, not just academic ones but also social ones too.
Oh, and just so I don’t slammed with a big lawsuit for defamation, the content and opinions expressed in this blog has no official affiliation with The University of Melbourne. It is produced by an ex-student, not the university.
