About the Telethon Appeal


The University of Melbourne Telethon Program plays a crucial role in reconnecting our alumni and friends with the University while also raising awareness and funding for a wide variety of University initiatives.

Why take the opportunity to speak to a current student?

Having the opportunity to speak with our current students is a more personal way of keeping up to date with what is happening at the University and how life has changed on campus since your time here. Our Student Callers love hearing your stories and any memories you may have of your time at the University.

Offer advice

Our student callers relish the opportunity to contact alumni and hear firsthand about your career path and how to transition from University to a career.

Learn about our alumni benefits

The University of Melbourne offers a variety of benefits and special offers for you as alumni, as well as special events and discounts. Our Student Callers can help direct you to some you may be interested in taking advantage of.

Update your details

If you’ve moved house or changed your email address lately, our Student Callers are fully trained to update your contact information so you continue to receive University of Melbourne communications like 3010 Magazine and our Alumni e-News. If you have recently changed your phone number, please click here to update us and stay connected.

Why make a gift?

Your support of scholarships and student financial aid can make all the difference between a bright mind continuing at the University or having to abandon study due to financial hardship. Alternatively, you could choose to support one of our university research projects, which are working to solve some of the biggest challenges facing our world today.
Wherever you decide to direct your gift, your generosity will have a profound impact on the lives of our students and researchers.

We hope you enjoy talking with our Student Callers about University life and consider joining your fellow alumni in helping students and researchers to realise their full potential.
