Not all universities are created equal. So what makes Monash so special? Learn more
We let you choose when and how to specialise
We give you the freedom to study the way that suits you best. If you have a very specific career focus, you can specialise from your first day of uni. Alternatively, you can study a range of subjects and choose a major later in your degree. Or do both, with a double degree.
We help you become a global citizen
With international campuses and research centres, partner universities, and exchange agreements with more than 100 universities all over the world, we make it easy to study abroad as part of your degree. You could polish your Mandarin in China, teach literacy with Oxfam in South Africa, or study art in Italy. You won’t need to pay extra university fees, and we offer a range of travel scholarships and interest-free loans to help you fund your trip.
We make you career ready
The world’s top CEOs love Monash graduates (Global Employability University Rankings, 2014). We build soft skills, like communication and analysis, into our degrees to make you more employable and flexible in your career. So in addition to our standing as one of the best universities in Australia, and top 1% of universities worldwide, you can rest assured that after you leave Monash, you’ll be primed for your future and ready to hit the ground running.
Double your options with a double degree
You can combine your ambition and your passion with a double degree. (We call it ‘one for the mind, and one for the heart'.) Because a subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take two years less than if you studied the two courses at the same time. Also, in an Australian first, all Monash four-year specialist degrees lead to an honours degree. Once you have an honours degree, you can generally complete a master’s degree in the same discipline in just one extra year.
We have one of Australia’s most generous scholarships programs.
We don’t believe personal or financial hardship should hold anyone back from a first-rate education. We offer over 200 scholarships for academic excellence and to compensate for disadvantage. Some scholarships combine both. And most are available for the whole of your degree. Plus, if you meet the eligibility criteria, the Monash Guarantee and the Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) can help you access and succeed at Monash.
“I decided to study a double degree because I’m interested in both law and finance, and this was a great way to combine my two passions. Studying a double degree gives you the opportunity to explore different things and discover new interests. I chose Commerce and Laws, because I have a particular interest in the connections between finance and law."
“Law at Monash is unique in that you are able to complete the course as an undergraduate student. This allows you to immediately jump straight into the degree and immerse yourself in the content. Being with like-minded people has been the best aspect of studying law at Monash. I felt at home from the beginning of my degree, and being with a great group of people really makes the university experience so much more enjoyable.”
