Intercultural enrichment program
Like many students who study at Monash Malaysia, you might like to join the Inter-cultural Enrichment Program. It's a four-week program designed specifically for exchange or study abroad students. You could learn basic Bahasa Malaysian to help you get by in everyday conversations, visit historical towns like Malacca, and try traditional local foods like roti chanai or nasi lemak.
And, best of all, it's free.
Monash-wide scholarships and funding
Monash Abroad Travel Scholarship
The brand-new Monash Abroad Travel Scholarship packages could get you well on your way to experiencing study overseas. The packages support a range of overseas programs (like exchange, faculty overseas programs, internships and research), and could give you between $200 and $2500 to spend any way you like – they even include insurance.
It's possible to hold more than one scholarship, bursary or grant at a time, so checking out all of the funding opportunities available to you is a good idea.
You may be eligible for a Monash Travel Abroad Equity Bursary, and the Australian Government has a number of grants to encourage students to study overseas.

Many students take out an OS-HELP loan to help fund their time away on exchange – it works just the same as a bank loan, but without any fees or interest, is much more affordable.
Monash student financial aid also offers interest free loans, of up to $3000, with flexible repayment schedules.
