  • Want to spend a semester in Italy? Check out our Pop-up Prato!

    20 February 2017

    We’re setting up a Pop-up Prato at the Clayton campus on Wednesday 1 March to celebrate all things Prato. Come hear about the Faculty of Arts Semester in Prato program from staff, as well as students who’ve studied at the Monash Prato Centre.

    Don’t miss your chance to find out how you can combine study and travel in this flexible and immersive 12-week program. Units run over 4-week blocks, and you don’t have to study in every one.

    You might even win a Lonely Planet Italian Phrasebook & Dictionary to help you get your Italian up to scratch before you go!

  • I’ve just got my M-Pass card, what do I need to do?

    2 February 2017

    Great, you don’t need to do anything with your M-Pass card until the start of semester.

    M-Pass is your new student ID card, soon it will replace your old ID card.

    Your M-Pass will be linked to an online account, so you can use it to:

    • add credit to pay for printing, copying and library fines (the library no longer accepts cash)
    • identify yourself on campus and at exams
    • borrow books etc. from the library
    • access secure buildings.

    Transition period

    There will be a transition period between Jan - Mar 2017, when you'll need to carry two ID cards:

    • your current black/white ID card for building access
    • and your new M-Pass for printing.
  • Volunteer to make a real difference – thousands of opportunities!

    26 January 2017

    As a Monash student, you can access thousands of volunteer roles online. Help out on campus. Join a project in a suburb near where you live. Or become an ambassador for an issue you care about. Whatever you choose, you’ll be valued and respected as a volunteer.

    The skills you learn while working to help others will last a lifetime. You’ll practice teamwork, project management, leadership and empathy. And volunteering can improve your chances of finding paid work. But most importantly, you’ll make a real, lasting change in your community.
