I am from the US and am looking to study abroad. I am interested in going to a university in Australia, but I am not sure what universities are good. I am studying Mechanical Engineering and music, so I am looking for a university that has both (so it will probably be one of the larger universities). I have been looking up info on the University of Queensland, so if you have any info on that school I would appreciate it.
I am looking for suggestions on where to go, please help meh.

Monash uni is pretty big, one of the better schools around.

But dude, Australia isn't the greatest for Education.

Edit: According to my friend, Monash is the second best in Aus. And it's right over from my high school =o

Yeah Griffith university in Queensland looks pretty good.

I'll probably end up studying 3d animation there in 2 years.

University of Wollongong (UOW), best engineering university in NSW, and one of the finest in Australia, I have friends who go there and they love it.

monash 2nd best in australia?! thats like saying catholics dont like little boys...
but on topic
i got to melbourne uni... and it is very good for science / engineering subjects (coincidently i do science / engineering subjects)
ive heard that the music side is good... but its more classical stuff.
im gonna start a music subject next year.. but thats probably too late to help you decide :P

I go to Griffith University.

We do quite well in Law and Music.

Not so much for engineering, I'd recommend The University of Queensland for engineering-ish subjects.

I wouldn't touch QUT with a ten foot pole though.

That said, your best bet for a good time and education would be Melbourne.


EDIT:
Oh yes, forgot about the whole international student thing. Griffith <3's foreign people, so odds are if you applied by smearing **** on a piece of paper they'd still accept you .

newcastle offers engineering/music combined.
it's one of the better australian uni's, and it is really really into supporting international students.

What?


Anyway, if you're thinking about doing music, is it classical or contemporary? The ANU is STRICTLY classical music.
