Hey everybody! This here is a one-stop shop for everything uni-related; we've gone through and selected some of the best/most useful threads about university. Some are uni-specific, others are faculty-specific, and others still are very general - we cater for everything. ;D If you don't know where to start, you can find some of the major university parts of the forum at the following links:

* General University Discussion and Queries
* The University Journal Journal
* Universities - Victoria
* Universities - New South Wales
* Universities - Faculties

But here are some more specific threads that might interest you. If you have a different question, or want to make a new thread, feel free! To do so, you'll first need an ATAR Notes account - it's free, and you can sign up in about four seconds flat. ;D
