It's the largest cross-faculty social event of the year: the Annual Graduate Ball.

About the Annual Ball

Every year, the University of Melbourne Graduate Student Association holds a ball open to the entire graduate community. Whether it’s the roaring 20s or Eurovision-inspired 70s, the Graduate Ball gives graduate students a night of drinks, music and dancing unlike any other.
