There can be a lot to navigate at university. And we’re here to support you, each step of the way.
Some of the most important parts of your uni experience happen outside the classroom.
Our friendly Student Services teams are here to help with all your questions. Whether it’s enrolment (or re-enrolment), preparing for placement, special consideration for circumstances beyond your control, or where to go for academic support - they can connect you with the help you need.
We want you to feel welcome and supported at Monash right from the start. That’s why a number of our courses offer peer mentoring. This gives you the opportunity to learn from someone who’s been in your shoes - whether it’s building your confidence before going on placement, tackling an assignment or making a new friend.
Need the extra bit of help mastering tricky content? With PASS, you can take part in small, guided study sessions with academic mentoring from a senior student. We run PASS sessions for selected units across biomedical science, nutrition science, nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
The Gukwonderuk unit supports our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to develop into healthcare professionals. This includes mentoring through our Indigenous healthcare student network, bursary and accommodation help.
Monash provides a whole range of support services for our students. This includes health and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, accommodation, security and safety, disability services, financial assistance, parenting and childcare, and advocacy.
Gain an edge
At Monash, we’re not just training the next generation of health professionals, but health leaders. There’s a wealth of opportunities for you to build your leadership skills and create change in the world around you. From the prestigious Vice Chancellor’s Ancora Imparo Leadership Program, to our online modules Leap into Leadership, we help prepare you to be the best leader you can be.
Want to get a taste of a research career? Our Summer and Winter Vacation Scholarships give you the chance to contribute to a real research project - whether that’s 3D anatomy printing, efficacy of emergency responder programs, or climate factors impacting dengue fever.
We know how important real-world experience is, to setting you up for your future career. We offer a number of co-curricular programs, which give you the chance to build your networks and practice your skills, outside of your studies. These can include working with health services in developing countries, mentoring young people with a disability, or working with local non-government organisations (NGOs).
Join the community
Clubs are a great way to connect with other people in your outside of class and make new friends. Not only do we have academic clubs for all of our health courses, but there’s also heaps of clubs for you to join based on your social interests (from anime, to cosplay, to permaculture) or cultural background.
Share your experiences and inspire the next generation of Monash students. Our ambassadors play an important role in representing our Faculty - by leading campus tours, speaking to visitors and taking part in Open Day.
Sign up to play on one of Monash’s inter-university or community sports teams, or help out at an event as part of the support crew.
Volunteering is one of the most rewarding ways of developing your personal and professional skills. You can explore a range of volunteer roles both at Monash and outside of the university, and help make a positive change in your community.
Getting international experience can put you ahead of the game. Some of our degrees give you the chance for you to complete a placement overseas - so you could spend time studying medical imaging in Thailand or Scotland, nursing in Sweden or physiotherapy in Hong Kong.
Want to gain a global perspective? Monash offers study abroad opportunities in over 30 countries. Depending on your degree, you could spend a semester learning Italian in Prato, study biochemistry in Cardiff or complete psychological research at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute.
