Pre-commencement briefings

We want you to feel comfortable at Monash University from the moment you get started. That's why we hold pre-commencement briefings for commencing international students and their families.

These briefings give you the opportunity to ask questions and hear from other Monash students before you arrive.

Topics include:

  • adapting to the university education system
  • prepare for your commencement online - what you need to know to get started and access study support services
  • accommodation advice and support
  • services and tips for your safety and security
  • orientation activities you can join online
  • working while studying
  • current students discuss their experience - cultural differences, life in Australia
  • support services and programs to keep you connected with the University community
