University of Melbourne alumni
University policy defines alumni as the following:
Membership of the alumni community is extended to all those who have successfully completed at least one year of full-time study at the University, or in the case of international students, have completed a semester length Study Abroad program at the University. Former academic and professional staff and members of official university committees who have completed three years service are also deemed to be alumni of the University, and are automatically engaged in appropriate alumni activities. Membership is free.
Using this website, you can make the connection to some of the 250,000 alumni located worldwide, and take advantage of the benefits and services at your disposal.
From current Prime Minister The Hon. Julia Gillard MP, to Nobel Prize winning doctor Elizabeth Blackburn AC and philosopher Laureate Professor Peter Singer, you share an alumni connection with many of the great thinkers, leaders and innovators of our time.
Each year, the University pays tribute to its alumni who have been recognised in the Australia Day and Queen's Birthday Honours lists.
Many of our alumni have gone on to achieve great renown in their respective fields both in Australia and overseas.
