Have relatives who are Australians. University of Melbourne is a good uni in Australia. A bit like our local uni, NUS or NTU. At least to their locals.

But they graduated many years ago. Not sure about its status now. Last I heard, Australian unis flooded with foreign students. Standards perhaps not as high as a decade ago.

I don't think all Australian degrees are inferior. Really depends on where you go and what courses you take. Many of my friends with Australian degrees in psychology and biz are doing well.

Thank you all.
Would like to offer my perspective.

I would not be looking purely at brand recognition of potential employers but also alternative exit strategies. Many people don't actually end up in jobs for which they studied for at university. I would advise thinking about entry requirements for programmes like MBAs, JDs or post grad MBBS (or whatever it is called. I would also advise considering whether a mid-way transfer between programmes is an option in the event you realize half-way through that business is not as interesting as you thought it would be.

Ultimately, private degrees in Singapore would not afford you the same postgrad opportunities as a degree from uni of Melbourne. My suggestion would be not to limit your exit options at this stage - go to uni melb.

Melbourne University is obviously a good university in Australia, considering it is the highest ranking with the highest local entry standards.

The issue is that they severely deflate those standards for international students, which are use as cash cows. Hence the perception of MelbU as of inferior quality outside of Australia.

The question OP should be asking himself is not whether a degree from Melbourne is superior to a degree from a private university. All things equal, that is surely the case.

The crux of the issue lies with whether the ROI will be worth it. 120-150k vs 30k is significant. Will going to Melb earn you back that 100k you spent? If you are rich, then go, but if money is a consideration, it may not be worth it.

"Eight Nobel Laureates taught/studied/researched at the University of Melbourne." How many Nobel Laureates are at NUS & NTU? 0, 1 or 2? Earlier posts are correct that SOME of UniMelb highly popular courses (eg Biomed, Commerce) have HIGHER more stringent entry requiremts than SOME of Nus/Ntu's "less popular" courses. This fact can be easily checked.

Above is correct & can be fact-checked. Is so obvious SOME of "Melbourne U's popular courses-eg Commerce/Biomed with AAB entry" have tougher admission entry than SOME of "Ntu/Nus' less popular courses." Impossible to generalise which Uni is better- boils down to specific course & individual achievements when job-hunting.
