Description

On this live-streamed campus tour, I will take you for a trip around the University of Melbourne as I tell you the stories of its history, claim to fame, and student life. The University of Melbourne has given Australia four of its Prime Ministers and to the world, four Nobel Laureates. 

Together we will visit the iconic sporting fields and the Centre for Aboriginal Students, and marvel at the amazing architecture of the science and Arts buildings(where I will tell you about Australia's first pop-singer, Dame Nellie Melba). Then we will proceed to the majestic Old Quad via some old castle type buildings and Hogwarts-style dwellings, where the student accommodation is. I will give you insights into local  Melbourne life, right from its shopping centres to its tram systems and even the student services to aid your studies at the University. The tour will be conducted either walking or on bike, with or without my ginger beard/ moustache! 

This tour is mainly aimed at any person interested in studying at the University of Melbourne so they can see the campus and get a feel of what it would be like day to day on campus in this historically significant, beautifully leafy green, inner city university.
