Fees and scholarships

The recruitment of talented and high quality students worldwide is one of the key strategies of Monash University. We invest more than $55 million on graduate research scholarships annually. It's our investment in ideas and people that will change the world – and it covers more than the cost of study.

Our tuition scholarships for international students cover the cost of tuition fees, and in some cases include the cost of compulsory Overseas Student Health Cover.

We also offer stipends and other allowances, travel grants, publication grants, residential scholarships and more.

The RTP Fees Offset covers the course tuition fees for Domestic Applicants. The RTP Fees Offset is provided in accordance with the University’s RTP scholarship policy and procedures.
