Why choose Monash?

    • 1. Freedom to tailor your studies

      We see each student as an individual, and our course structures reflect that. So if you come to us with a specific career in mind, we’ll help you specialise your degree to help you work towards it. And if you’re still figuring it all out, you can start by studying the subjects that interest you, and decide on a major later. 

    • 2. Become a global citizen

      With international campuses, partner universities, and exchange agreements with more than 100 universities around the world, you’ll be given the resources and opportunities to take your studies abroad. At Monash, we believe these experiences can be some of the most valuable, so we also help students fund their trips with travel scholarships and interest-free loans. 

    • 3. Graduate ready for an incredible career

      It’s not an accident that Monash graduates are favoured by some of the world’s top CEOs. We’ve carefully crafted our courses to make you more employable – by building secondary skills (like communications and analysis) into your university experience. So when you leave us, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running. 

    • 4. Combine your interests with a double degree

      We know that your career ambition and your passions may not always line up. So we’ve made it easy to spend your time at university exploring both with a double degree. By using the electives in one course to study subjects from the other, you can have your double degree in just four years. 

    • 5. One of Australia's most generous scholarship programs

      Monash offers more than 200 scholarships to support academic excellence and disadvantaged students – and most of these will cover the entire degree. The Monash Guarantee and Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) are also available to help eligible students get into and succeed at Monash. 

    I have my results, what now?

    When the big day arrives, you’ll be feeling a mix of emotions about your results. No matter what your circumstance, we are here to help.

    Your student journey

    The 'still not sure' student

    Your ATAR is more or less as expected, but you are still not sure which courses you want to apply for. We can help you narrow down your options and select the Monash courses that will best suit your personal and career aspirations. Come to the Change of Preference Expo.

    The 'my ATAR is slightly lower than last year's clearly in' student

    It doesn’t matter – put your course preferences in. Clearly-in ATARs change from year to year, so they should be used as a guide only.

    The 'just in case' student

    Your ATAR is what you expected. But you want to make sure you have your options covered and aren’t taking any chances with your course preferences. Chat to us about your specific situation and we can give you some personalised advice.​

    The 'all is well' student

    Your ATAR is what you expected and you are fairly certain of what courses you want to include in your final preferences.  Even better, maybe your ATAR is higher than expected and you now want to consider courses you had previously left from your preferences. Check if you meet the prerequisites and any special requirements for the courses. You might not need to do anything. But if you do have some final questions about the courses you have applied for, we are here. Come to the Change of Preference Expo.

    The 'change of plan' student

    ​Your ATAR may be lower than expected. Don’t worry. You may just need to re-evaluate your options. You could consider diploma programs or courses with lower ATARs as a pathway to your dream course. Don’t forget, you may also be eligible for consideration through subject bonusing, the Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) and the Monash Guarantee.
