With UNC-CH's study abroad program, students can spend a semester or a year experiencing Australian life, culture, and academics at the University of Melbourne in the state of Victoria, Australia. Opening in 1855, the University of Melbourne was Victoria's first university and Australia's second. It is considered to be Australia's leading research university.
Students will join approximately 22,000 undergraduate students, including 1,700 international students, at the university. The main campus is in a prime location, only a fifteen minute walk to Melbourne itself. The campus consists of historic and modern buildings set among open spaces for recreation, with brick-paved walks and nearby parklands.
