Still have questions? Here’s some we prepared earlier…
That’s great – we love enquiring minds! This is also not an easy decision and it is likely that many other students are asking the same questions. Feel free to email one of the Honours co-ordinators for specific questions you may have, but here are some quick answers to questions we’ve encountered over the years.
You’ll be pleased to know that answers to the types of questions you might have can be found in the FAQ section of the Monash Connect site. Covering parking, enrolment, life at Monash, student services, graduations and more – the FAQ database might help answer your query.
