The wide range of higher education providers in Melbourne means that undergraduate degrees are available in just about every field and specialisation — from finance and medicine to animation and the arts.
Regional Victoria is traditionally known for its course offerings in agriculture, forestry and education, although students still have access to most of the study fields on offer at metropolitan campuses, from arts to engineering, law and medicine. Some providers and campuses offer the opportunity to access fields of study not readily available in metropolitan areas, like outdoor education or health courses with a regional focus.
There is no one university that is best for all students, since different things matter to different people. The Good Universities Guide ratings provide a series of insights on Australian universities, helping those in the process of deciding where to study.
Courses and institutions differ in many ways and only the student can decide which differences really matter to them. Check out the ratings for Victorian universities and filter by study level (undergraduate or postgraduate). Some ratings are also available to filter further by field of study.
In the tables below, we’ve listed the university that ranked highest in each rating category for Victoria in the 2022 edition of The Good Universities Guide ratings.
