Embedding research in education
The University of Melbourne is a leading research-based institution, endorsed time and time again by the Australian Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) rankings and leading international rankings and accreditations.
Our bilateral agreements with institutions in 35 countries mean that prominent international academic researchers regularly visit and teach at the University.
