The Melbourne V Monash Varsity Challenge was established in 2014, drawing on a long rivalry between the two universities.
The University of Melbourne and Monash University are the two top sporting Universities in Victoria, yet they only meet in structured competition at Australian University Sport events. The Varsity Challenge was started as a way of creating another opportunity for the two universities to compete on the field.
Established in 1853, the University of Melbourne is a public-spirited institution that makes distinctive contributions to society in research, learning and teaching and engagement. It’s consistently ranked among the leading universities in the world, with international rankings of world universities placing it as number 1 in Australia and number 34 in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-2014).
Named after engineer, military leader and public administrator Sir John Monash, Monash University was established by an Act of Parliament in 1958. Monash was the first university established in the state of Victoria in over 100 years. Monash is consistently ranked among the top Australian Universities in all disciplines.
