UNSW or Melbourne University?Watch
I am planning to take Finance, which university should i go to?
Some people say that UNSW is the best business school, but some people say Mel U is. Mel U is also ranked higher than UNSW in the world ranking, does that really matter?
Will I be more acknowledged by companies if I were a student of Mel U rather than UNSW?
I am also considering the campus life. Which university has the better campus? and which uni has better students/people for networking?
My other choice of major is Food Technology. any idea which uni is better for food technology?
On average, UoM is the more reputable choice in general. My current uni (ANU) constantly battles with it for the top spot in the national rankings. Both unis (UoM and UNSW) are in the Group of Eight (Australian equivalent of the Russell Group).
That's all I can offer you, have no idea which uni is better for Business It also depends where you want to work later - UoM is better known globally.
If you're on exchange - you've gotta come to Sydney. You can't go wrong with the beaches here. UNSW is the best business school in Sydney (and I go to USYD!).
However if you're here for the long term I would pick Melbourne - its a great city and it's not as expensive!
The University is excellent and has strong international recognition. It was founded in 1850 and is one of the oldest Unis in Australia. NSW was only founded in 1949 as a Technology University (ie. a Polytechnic type Uni) - it might have nice modern looking buildings, but it doesnt have the academic depth of somewhere like Melbourne. Melbourne has a compact campus that is easy to find your way around, and is within 10 mins walk of the CBD (NSW is in a suburb 7kms from the city). Melbourne is a beautiful city to live in and isnt as massive/overwhelming as Sydney - this is important if you are coming from overseas, you need somewhere you can get to grips with and feel at home quickly.

Not because they are better, but there are more finance jobs in Sydney than Melb. However, if you are an international student, then UoM!
