Overview

Monash University is a public research university based in Melbourne, Australia. Founded in 1958, it is the second oldest university in the State of Victoria. The university has a number of campuses, four of which are in Victoria (Clayton, Caulfield, Peninsula, and Parkville), and one in Malaysia. Monash also has a research and teaching centre in Prato, Italy, a graduate research school in Mumbai, India and a graduate school in Suzhou, China. Monash University courses are also delivered at other locations, including South Africa.

Monash University offers an extensive range of courses and research degrees that provide students with the opportunity to pursue what interests them the most. Students even have the option to take up two degrees at the same time, thus enabling them to graduate with two bachelor degrees. All ten faculties at Monash have this option, with durations of study varying from four to six and a half years.

Students also have flexibility in choosing their mode of study because Monash has options for part-time, as well as online and distance study. Alternative pathways, such as the Monash Access Program, Monash College, Indigenous Enabling Program, and single units, are also on offer.

Monash University has one of the largest overseas student populations in Australia. Comprehensive support services are in place to aid international students even before they arrive in the country, and pre-departure briefings are conducted to ensure that students are prepared for their arrival. The university even offers free airport pick up services to take students to their accommodation.

Accommodation options include on-campus living in residential halls or individual units, as well as off-campus living through private rentals, specialised apartments, and homestay. International students bringing their families can take advantage of the childcare services being offered by the Australian campuses.

Along with these services English language support is available through specialised language courses and the Language and Learning Online Tool. Faculty support and mentoring programs are likewise on offer, and a number of international student scholarships along with financial assistance services are provided exclusively to international students.

The annual undergraduate tuition fees are $39,100 for business courses, $28,900 for Arts/Education, and $38,900 for Engineering/Science.

Monash University is committed to making higher education accessible to all by offering and awarding over 200 types of scholarships each year. These scholarships range in value and are designed to cover various levels of living costs and tuition fees, with some offering one-off payments while others continuously provide support throughout the length of the recipient’s course.

At Monash, even scholarships come under a number of options. High achievers can apply for scholarships that reward academic excellence, primarily under the Sir John Monash Scholarship Program, which is a premier set of scholarships specifically geared toward attracting the best students. On the other hand, disadvantaged students, such as those with financial difficulties or those who come from an indigenous Australian background, can be awarded an equity scholarship. Music, sports, and research scholarships are in place. There are also scholarships on offer for international students, as well those studying in one of Monash’s overseas campuses.
