Assessing your application

When your application is received, Monash University will assess your application against university entrance requirements including: minimum age, english and academic entry requirements. To comply with Australian law your application will be assessed to check that you are genuinely seeking temporary entry to Australia to study. If the university forms the opinion that you are not a Genuine Temporary Entrant it may refuse to assess your application, withdraw an offer of a place or cancel your confirmation of enrolment.

If your application is successful, we will make you a full offer. We will email this to you and to your agent, if you have one.

If we are not able to make you a full offer immediately, you may receive a conditional offer. A conditional offer means you must submit more information before we can send you a full offer. Usually, the information we need is final results, the results of an english exam, or transcripts. We will explain in the email.

If you are not successful for your first course preference, we will assess you for the next preference on your application form, or for a pathway program through Monash College.
