Enrolment and orientation


If you're about to start a new course at Monash as an international student, you must enrol in person. Enrolment is compulsory for both new students and existing students beginning a new course.

Before enrolment day

Authority to enrol

Once you have accepted your offer and paid your first year's tuition fees, Monash University will email you an official 'authority to enrol'. You will receive this email about two to three weeks before your enrolment day on campus.

Enrolment tasks online

The 'authority to enrol' lists enrolment tasks that you need to complete before attending enrolment day.

For more detail, see how to enrol – international students in Australia (steps one to three).

You should order your OSHC card as soon as you arrive in Australia, you will need to:

  • nominate an Australian postal address for delivery
  • present this membership card every time you visit a medical service provider.
