Overall
Personal recommendation
They need international reforms, they are highly overrated and their tuition is too much for what they actually provide. I could have taken a distance course and learned as much, save for the presence of Jeanette Lawrence and Nick Haslam.

Strongly, because they really take good care after their international students. It's a beautiful campus, and the university has a lot of prestige.

Overall
To be able to study in an international well respected University has always been my dream since young. I was so happy that when the university of Melbourne accepted my enrolment application to the final year of the course of Bachelor of Planning and Design (construction management).

The course was well structured by teaching on the fundamental aspects of urban planning, structural design, construction management, construction law etc. We have gathered valuable resources and knowledge during periodical site visits and group projects. 

All in all, year 1999 was wonderful year to me. I get to experience the life abroad and mixing with people from different cultures. It has improved my critical thinking skills and broadened my horizon.

Pros
Dedicated professors, big campus with great facilities
ABOUT
Established in 1853, Melbourne University was Victoria's first and Australia's second university when it opened in 1855. Its construction was made possible by the new wealth created in Victoria as a result of the gold rush. One of the early objectives was to improve the moral fibre of colonists, although equality with Sydney was just as important.

The University boomed after World War 2, starting an expansion program in terms of courses and facilities that continues today and has resulted in the University of Melbourne becoming one of the largest in Victoria.
