Leap into Leadership Online is a suite of free modules to develop your employability and leadership skills at your own pace. It's available for all current Monash students, any time - so you can complete as many modules as you like, at any stage of your studies.

Each module is practical, straightforward and fun, and takes about one to two hours to complete. There are no formal assessments to hand in, and you'll earn a certificate for each module.

So, whether you want to hone your skills in communication, managing events or projects, teamwork or goal-setting, check out the modules on offer and get started today.

Click a module below to enrol. All modules are offered in Moodle, where you'll find all the instructions.

How it works

All current students at Monash University are eligible for Leap into Leadership Online.

  1. Choose a topic and get started straight away. Whether it's a topic you know nothing about and want to improve, or a skillset an employer has identified in a job ad, there's plenty of choices and they're all free.
  2. Work your way through the online module, at your own pace. Watch videos and complete quizzes in Moodle to progress to the next section. Make sure you read the Welcome and Module Instructions before you start.
  3. Complete the module to receive your certificate. At the end of the module (it will take about 1-2 hours to finish), your responses will be submitted to Monash. If you've completed the module to a satisfactory standard, you'll be emailed a personalised certificate confirming the things    you've learned.
  4. Apply your new skills to your studies, work, volunteering and extracurricular activities. Many modules offer downloadable resources to use in the real world. Use your certificate to help you explain what you've learned to employers. You can also log in to Student Futures to record and reflect on what you've learnt, and to help you articulate your skills to future employers.

Bonus for completing five modules

Complete five or more modules to be in the running to secure a place at the Student Leadership Summit in August. 

Registrations open in July and limited places are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. You can complete modules anytime from 1 January - 1 August 2017.
