Human rights and international law expert Professor Hilary Charlesworth, says that Australia's appointment to the UN Human Rights Council gives the country an opportunity to examine its own human rights record.
The Melbourne Model of broad undergraduate studies with postgraduate specialisation lies at the heart of this success, believes Professor Margaret Sheil, Provost of the University of Melbourne.
“The Melbourne Model delivers resilient graduates who enter the workplace with a highly desirable blend of technical, communication and interpersonal skills,” said Professor Sheil.
“We introduced the Melbourne Model to respond to the changing world of work. As professional life becomes more complex, universities must equip their students with a more diverse and flexible skill set.
“In a crowded marketplace, a specialised postgraduate qualification helps our students stand out to employers.”
The ranking is based on 5 elements: employer reputation, alumni outcomes, partnerships with employers, employer-student connections and graduate employment rate.
