The freedom to tailor your studies

We see each student as an individual, and our course structures reflect that. So if you come to us with a specific career in mind, we'll help you specialise your degree to help you work towards it. And if you're still figuring it all out, you can start by studying the subjects that interest you, and decide on a major later.

You'll become a global citizen

With international campuses, partner universities, and exchange agreements with more than 100 universities around the world, you'll be given the resources and opportunities to take your studies abroad. At Monash, we believe these experiences can be some of the most valuable, so we also help students fund their trips with travel scholarships and interest-free loans.

You'll graduate with everything you need to start an incredible career

It's not an accident that Monash graduates are favoured by some of the world's top CEOs. We've carefully crafted our courses to make you more employable - by building secondary skills (like communication and analysis) into your university experience. So when you leave us, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

You can combine what you love with a double degree

We know that your career ambition and your passions may not always line up. So we've made it easy to spend your time at university exploring both with a double degree. By using the electives in one course to study subjects from the other, you can have your double degree in just 4 years.

You'll have access to one of Australia's most generous scholarship programs

Monash offers more than 200 scholarships to support academic excellence and disadvantaged students - and most of these will cover the entire degree. The Monash Guarantee and Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) are also available to help eligible students get into and succeed at Monash.

Katherine Allman

Studying a Bachelor of Law and Biomedical Science, French, a member of Muggles, the Law Students’ Society, and training for a half marathon, there isn’t much that Katherine isn’t involved in. Her advice to new students is to make the most of Open Day. “There is a lot of information (on the day) you can’t just get from the VTAC guide or university websites.”

Talk to Katherine about why she chose Monash – and where the best lounges are on campus.

Aaron Corera

Aaron Corera loves all things engineering. As a member of the Monash Aerospace and Mechanical Club (MAMEC), he is involved in all kinds of events that allow him to network with industry leaders. He is also part of the Monash Unmanned Aerials Systems team - which enables engineering students to work in teams on flying wings, multi rotors and hybrid aircraft.

Talk to Aaron about why he loves his course – and where to find the best coffee on campus.

Open Day Faqs

What’s Open Day?

If you're thinking of starting university, it's a chance for you to visit our campus, get an idea of who we are, and see if we're right for you. You can bring your family and friends along too.

There are lots of activities and events to get involved in, and you’ll also find:

  • Current students who can answer all your questions about studying at Monash
  • Academics and staff who can answer in-depth questions about courses, study areas and careers
  • Researchers sharing their most innovative and interesting research projects
  • Student Services staff who can help with everything from enrolment to graduation
  • Information about life on campus, sports, clubs and support services
  • Tours, food stalls and much more

Do I have to come for the whole day?

Definitely not. You can come to as many Open Days as you want, stay for as long as you like, and get involved wherever you’re interested.

We have 3 Open Days – Saturday 6 August at our Peninsula campus, Sunday 7 August at the Caulfield and Clayton campuses and Sunday 21 August for our Parkville campus.

Open Day will run:

  • 10am - 3pm at Parkville and Peninsula
  • 10am - 4pm at Caulfield and Clayton

Should I come to Open Day if I’m a graduate or returning to study?

Absolutely. You’ll find lots of events and information tailored to graduates and mature age students – alongside those for our Year 11 and 12 visitors. You might also be interested in other events we hold throughout the year for graduates and mature age students.

Can I bring family and friends to Open Day?

Yes! Bring anyone you’d like to involve in your study journey.

How do I get to the campus?

There are lots of different ways to get to our campuses (you’ll find details in the ‘What's on’ section above). We’ll also be running free shuttle buses between the Caulfield and Clayton campuses, Huntingdale station and Clayton campus, and between Frankston train station and Peninsula campus.

Should I go to Open Day at more than one campus?

You don’t have to, but it’ll be easy to get between them on the day if you’d like to attend activities at different campuses. It’s a good idea to use the planner to make sure you’ve seen everything you want at one campus before you move to the next.

Is there free car parking on campus?

Yes, all our parking is free on Open Day.

Do I have to use the online planner?

No, you can organise your visit however you like. Just remember, there are more than 500 activities going on around Monash Open Day, so you might like to prepare your visit and print off your plan.

There’ll be Open Day programs available on the day too, if you’d prefer not to plan everything out before you come.

Can I change my plan?

Sure, just log back into the online planner using your email address and make as many changes as you’d like.

Is there anything I should do to prepare?

It’s a good idea to have a list of questions with you, to make sure you get all the information you need. As well as asking about courses, you might be interested to know:

  • How does Monash help me get a job when I finish studying?
  • What's the benefit of a double degree?
  • Can I travel and study at the same time?
  • Are there leadership programs I can get involved with?
  • What are my accommodation options?
  • How much does university accommodation cost?
  • What scholarships and support are offered? Do I qualify?
  • What sports and other facilities does the university have? Are these free to use?
  • What student clubs could I join?
  • What are the main deadlines for applications? Are there other dates I need to remember?
  • Have I completed the right VCE subjects (or other study) for the course I want to do?
  • I'm an international student. How will my experience differ from a domestic student? Is there a different application process?
  • What are the fees for international students?
  • Are international students eligible for any scholarships or financial aid?
  • Are international students guaranteed university accommodation?
  • What special support services are available for international students?

Are all faculties at all Open Days?

All faculties will be represented at the Clayton campus. Each campus will generally promote the courses they offer. It’s best to visit the campus where you’ll be studying – you can figure which one is right for you by looking up your preferred courses.

What should I do when I get to the campus?

If you don’t have a printed copy of the program, the first thing to do is grab a hard copy – so you know what’s going on. Then you can start looking for our staff and student ambassadors (they’ll be out and about in blue Monash hoodies).

Can I go to activities or presentations if I haven’t planned my day online?

Yes! It’s best to plan ahead so you know what’s happening and don’t miss key events, but you don’t have to.

Can I wander around the student facilities?

Absolutely. Open Day is all about discovering what life at Monash is like – so you can explore everything from the library and lecture theatres, to our cafes, gyms and accommodation services.

Is there anywhere to eat on campus?

On Open Day, there’s lots of free food and drinks on offer for visitors. And all our campuses have lots of other cafes and food options too.

How can I help my child get the most out of Open Day?

We’ll have more than 500 activities going on across our campuses, so encouraging your child to plan ahead with the online planner is a good idea.

Should I come?

Yes, definitely. This is a time when students will need advice and help making the right decisions for their future, and a lot of them will turn to their families for that. And if they’d like to explore on their own for a while, there are plenty of cafes for you to enjoy.

How can I help my son or daughter find the right course?

This can be a really difficult time for students, as they try to navigate the huge range of courses available to them. To help them figure out what the best path might be, try asking them some open-ended questions that will encourage them to think about their passions, strengths and goals:

  • "What do you love doing most?"
  • "What are you best at?"
  • "Which careers appeal to you?"
  • "What would you like to achieve by the time you're 30?"
  • "Do you know what's on offer? It's not just about courses – what about study abroad opportunities, leadership programs, and recreational activities."
  • "Have you completed, or are you completing, the right VCE subjects?"

From there, you can make a shortlist together, and decide on some back up options in case your child doesn’t get into their first course or university preference. Open Day is a great place to ask questions about career paths, courses and pathways

Remember, while this is an important decision, many people change their career paths a number of times throughout their life. That’s why at Monash we equip our students with general skills like communication, negotiation and leadership, as well as academic ones.

Can you help me understand all the terminology?

You and your child may well come across language you're unfamiliar with when you start investigating courses and universities.

We have developed a glossary of terms (pdf) to assist you in understanding key terms.
