Information for partners and agents
Study abroad with Monash
Studying abroad with Monash is available to any university student – regardless of whether your home institution has an exchange agreement in place with us.
As a partner institution your students can take advantage of streamlined application processes and seamless integration into the Monash way of life. Many units are pre-approved, and fees agreements are made easy.
If your university is not a Monash Abroad partner your students will pay Monash University tuition fees for one or two semesters of study – depending on the program they choose. Contact us to find out about becoming a Monash partner.

Tailored student packages
We're keen to work with you to create the perfect tailored package for each of your students. Whether they want cultural immersion with a semester-long program, a short-term program that could take them to outback Australia to learn alongside Aboriginal elders, or a career-boosting professional internship, we can help you create and coordinate their program, at any of our campuses in Australia or Malaysia to ensure they get as much out of their time with us as possible.
Application procedures, grading procedures and semester dates are the same for all Monash University campuses – including Monash Malaysia.
Many students choose to study at the Clayton campus (Melbourne, Australia) – it's our largest, and offers the most course options and areas of study.
But be sure to check out all of our campuses. Or perhaps a truly Australian experience is what they're after – the Monash Gippsland campus, in the Victorian town of Churchill (at the foothills of the picturesque Strzelecki Ranges) is two hours from Melbourne, and combines a unique "small-town" agricultural setting with close proximity to beautiful beaches, lakes and national parks, and the Mount Baw Baw ski resort.

English language bridging programs
The language of instruction at every Monash campus is English. To help students meet our English language requirements we have created an English bridging program. The semester-long instruction, taken prior to commencing study abroad, is designed to help prepare students for learning, being assessed and dealing with every-day student life in English.
