Pre-arrival information

Congratulations - you've made a great choice to study with us in Australia's most livable city.

To get a feel of what it's like to live in Melbourne, check out what our interstate and international students have to say about their on-campus and off-campus experiences at Rent-Smart. This service was created to help make your move to Melbourne smooth, safe and enjoyable.

These services and resources have also been created to ease your transition into Monash life:

  • A comprehensive pre-arrival guide with information about everything you need to do before you arrive on campus – it also tells you about our on-campus support services.
  • Online pre-departure briefings for you and your family to take part in. These are a great way to get a sense of what lies ahead, ask our staff questions, and connect with fellow students who'll also be travelling from overseas to study with us.
  • A complimentary airport pick-up service from Melbourne's international airport to drive you to your destination.
  • A Destination Monash handbook for international students that covers all bases about living in Melbourne and studying with us.
