The University of Melbourne has appointed GO Communications to handle its corporate and media public relations.
The PR brief begins with the first ever University of Melbourne’s delegation to Kuala Lumpur in October to market the University.
GO Communications’ CEO, Michael de Kretser said, “It’s a great accolade to handle the PR for Australia’s highest ranked University that’s over 150 years old.”
De Kretser added, “The University is ranked 36th in the world by the Times Higher Education’s World University rankings.
“The University has more than 6,500 staff, more than 50,000 students, including over 12,000 international students from 129 countries.”
The University is an international leader in research, teaching and learning.
The Australian Federal Government’s latest Excellence in Education Research report named the University of Melbourne the leading Australian university for high quality research.
Melbourne University researchers are at the forefront of international scholarship in fields as diverse as human rights law, telecommunications and medical research.
