Program Description:
This program provides undergraduates with the opportunity to live and study in Melbourne, Australia, which often ranks as the most liveable city in the world. The University of Melbourne (UniMelb as it’s known) is a globally top-ranked university and is located within walking distance of downtown- a.k.a. the CBD- as well as the trendy neighborhood of Fitzroy. Melbourne is known for its diverse and artsy culture, filled with cool cafes, hidden laneways, and amazing cuisine. Along with the vibrant urban culture, students also have access to beaches and sporting matches at ‘The G’, Melbourne’s giant cricket ground.

Students have full access to Melbourne courses (called 'subjects' at Melbourne) provided they meet the necessary pre-requisites. In addition to the student life on campus, CASA students will explore Melbourne and Australia's rich culture through special excursions.
