Industry exposure

We are located in the heart of Melbourne’s health and biomedical precinct, probably the best of its kind in Australia. That means when you study pharmaceutical sciences with us, you’re also minutes from the Comprehensive Cancer Centre, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, the Howard Florey Institute, CSL Limited, the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and CSIRO's Division of Health Sciences.

But it’s not just the proximity that brings you close to the organisations that will matter so much to you as you near the end of your studies. Monash courses are carefully designed (and regularly reviewed) to make sure they’re teaching what employers want. And that means employers - from the biggest pharmaceutical companies, to the most reputable medical organisations - recognise the degree.

Our relationships with industry also means we can help you get industry placements you simply can’t get anywhere else. And that means remarkable experiences in the field before you’ve even graduated.

“The GlaxoSmithKline team has been very pleased with the calibre of Monash University’s pharmaceutical science students and their capability to adapt to the industrial environment as well as their excellent knowledge.”
