Class of 2023 Tertiary Destinations

Class of 2023 Tertiary Destinations

Before Christmas and throughout January, the graduates of the Class of 2023 received their university offers. We are happy to share their tertiary destinations and areas of study with our community.  

The Class of 2023 have chosen to undertake a range of pathways as they explore the world beyond our red brick walls. The breadth and depth of learning experiences at VCE level at MGGS has placed them in an optimal position to extend their education. Their MGGS experience has not only enabled their future pathway for study, but facilitated the development of the whole self, equipping them with the requisite skills to succeed at university. They continue their engagement in learning and interest in diverse areas of study at tertiary level, leading to new challenges and opportunities to gain knowledge, lead and excel.  

Our Class of 2023 graduates have gained offers for the coming year that demonstrate their commitment to excellence. They have pursued pathways which will enable them to continue learning at the highest level. During their Senior Years, this cohort of students challenged boundaries and were unique in their approach to combining their passion for learning with various opportunities. I am positive that this commitment to learning will continue during their university studies and beyond. Education is a gift and I know these young women have used their time at Melbourne Girls Grammar to fully immerse themselves in their learning and personal development.  – Principal Dr Toni Meath  


This year’s offers reflect the breadth of interests of our Class of 2023, and the diverse career pathways that they are set to embark on. There are 10 fields represented, and for the first time, our graduates have received an equal number of offers within the Sciences and the Arts, representing 48% (24% for each discipline) of the cohort’s offers. One of the benefit of girls’ education is the capacity for students to elect studies for which they have an interest and passion. Their choices are a reflection of their genuine interests and academic capabilities and are without conformity to preconceived gender stereotypes.

The offers received include those in the Arts, Language, Social, Global and International studies, Politics and Psychology, plus natural and physical Science degrees. There was an increase in the number of graduates who received offers in the fields of Business, Management and Commerce (15% to 23.5%) and an increase in offers in Law courses to 9.2%. 

At MGGS, we have committed to providing a high quality learning curriculum in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), enabling our girls to pursue whichever professional direction they choose, and I am incredibly pleased to see that an equal number of Grammarians from the Class of 2023 have chosen to pursue tertiary studies in Science courses, as courses in the Arts. I wish the Class of 2023 the best as they take their next steps into the world. I know I speak for all their teachers and support staff when I say that we are looking forward to following their journeys.” – Principal Dr Toni Meath  

The Class of 2023 has received offers from various Victorian and interstate universities. In Victoria, the University of Melbourne and Monash University were the top two destinations, with 36% and 30% of the cohort receiving offers to attend these universities respectively. Our graduates also received offers from universities across the country, such as Australian National University (ANU), the University of Sydney, the University of New South Wales (UNSW), the University of Newcastle and many more. Importantly, our graduates are receiving offers from the world’s top 100 universities, putting them on the global stage in terms of their study disciplines.  

Graduates received interstate university offers in the fields of Arts and Social Sciences, Criminology, Politics, Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE), Media, International Relations, Pharmacology, Biomedical Science, Medical Science, Architecture, Design and Business, Psychology, Law, Commerce and more.  

Henley Royal Regatta rowers Amelie McComb, Hannah Glover, Bella Ross and Lola Dahan are heading to the United States to Princeton University, the University of Massachusetts, and the University of California, Los Angeles respectively. These rowers will continue to train in high-quality programs whilst studying full time. Amelie is investigating a pre-medicine pathway and Lola is enrolled in Political Science, while Hannah is hoping to start a Business course and Bella is still finalising her preferences. We wish them well for the beginning of their academic year in September 2024. We also have multiple students considering offers from British universities, but are waiting final confirmations. Moving overseas for tertiary education can be daunting, but it is very exciting to see that our graduates have the courage to challenge themselves with new experiences.  

Our international students from the Class of 2023 have received offers to study in Victoria at the University of Melbourne and RMIT. Our Victorian-based international students have received offers in the fields of Arts, Teaching and Business. Some also received offers for New South Wales universities including the University of New South Wales (UNSW).   

Our high achievers from the Class of 2023 have received a number of brilliant offers. One of our duces – Chelsea Hinh, who received an ATAR of 99.9 – has accepted her place in a Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine at Monash University. Rosemary Nguyen has accepted a place in the Bachelor of Engineering and accelerated Master of Engineering program focussing on Cybersecurity at Monash University. Audrey Choi, our 2023 School Captain, will begin at the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Biomedicine followed by a Master of Engineering. Meanwhile, Eloise Bisley will travel to Canberra to undertake a Law/Arts undergraduate degree at Australian National University (ANU). 2023 School Vice Captain and Dux Secondae, Zoe Vlahos, has chosen to complete a Bachelor of Medicine at UNSW in Sydney. Jessica Li will be completing a Bachelor of Law Arts at Monash University.   

We are thrilled to see our newest Old Grammarians pursuing their education in courses suited to their strengths and interests. We hope their tertiary studies fuel a continued love of learning as they follow their passions and build their careers. We wish them all the best for the year ahead and encourage them to explore the myriad adventures that await them beyond our red brick walls.
