MEET YOUR HOST

WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE

It starts with curiosity. Do you want to discover the mysteries of the Universe? So do we! We were part of the team that confirmed the existence of gravitational waves, and we helped create the instruments that identified the elusive Higgs Boson.

The future is full of surprises. Join us in our discovery. The University of Melbourne’s beautiful and historic Parkville campus is located in a vibrant community on the edge of Melbourne’s central business district. Our Bachelor of Science allows you to explore your interest in STEM. You can specialise in one of 40 areas, including physics, mathematics and statistics, engineering and climatology.

Have a look around while you’re here. Hopefully you’ll like the place as much as we do.
