The 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.

You'll 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.

You'll graduate with everything you need to start 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 communication and analysis) into your university experience. So when you leave us, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

You can combine what you love 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.

You'll have access to one of Australia's most generous scholarship programs

Monash offers a large number of 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.

Cordelia Attenborough

Bachelor of Arts, double majors in international relations and sociology

“I love that the range of volunteering programs, internships and leadership programs are easy to get involved with and are great for individual development. Monash also offers students like myself important disability aid through Monash disability support, which provides students with academic support. The diversity and inclusion departments such as the Monash Queer Department advocate on behalf of LGBTI+ students and also run an awesome range of events.”

Look out for Cordelia on Open Day and ask her about Monash radio, Monash abroad, Monash sport and living on campus.

Fahad Mubashshir

Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical)

“Open day is a great way of giving insight into uni life, a quick peep into what life might be like in the coming years. I recommend visiting faculty facilities and the coffee shops - especially as you’ll be spending a lot of time there in the next few years.”

Talk to Fahad on Open Day about his many extracurricular activities at Monash as well as his industry internship.

Should I go to Monash Open Day at more than one campus?

Can I change my plan?

Sure, just log back into the online planner using your email address and then you can make as many changes as you’d like.

Is there anything I should do to prepare?

  • What are the deadlines for applications? Are there any other dates I need to remember?
  • Have I completed the right VCE/IB (or other study) subjects for the course I want to do?
  • How will my experience as an international student differ from a domestic student? Is there a different application process?
  • What are the fees for international students?
  • Are international students eligible for any scholarships or financial aid?

Are all faculties present at all Monash Open Days?

All faculties will be represented at the Clayton campus. You’ll find most faculties at most of the Open Days, but each campus will generally promote the courses they offer. It’s best to visit the campus where you’ll be studying – you can figure which one is right for you by looking up your preferred courses.

How do I choose which campus to visit?

We recommend visiting the campus that offers your preferred courses or where you’ll be studying.

Clayton campus is our biggest campus, and will have all faculties present on the day. You’ll find everything you need here, with loads of food options, and even an on-campus supermarket and pharmacy.

Caulfield campus is our second largest campus, and home to Monash Art Design & Architecture. This campus is right next to Caulfield train station, making it really easy to get to.

Our Peninsula campus is located in Frankston – a vibrant waterfront destination south-east of Melbourne. It specialises in nursing, physiotherapy, paramedicine, occupational therapy, education and business administration courses.

Parkville is home to Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, which is ranked number 2 in the world and includes new world-class research laboratories and teaching space.

What should I do when I get to the campus?

The first thing to do is grab a program so you know where everything is. Then you can start looking for our staff and student ambassadors (they’ll be out and about in blue or white Monash jackets).

Can I go to activities or presentations if I haven’t planned my day online?

Yes! It’s best to plan ahead so you know what’s happening and don’t miss out on key events, but you don’t have to.

Can I wander around the student facilities?

Absolutely. Open Day is all about discovering what life at Monash is like – so you can explore everything from the library and lecture theatres, to our cafes, gyms and accommodation services.

Is there anywhere to eat on campus?

Absolutely. Open Day is all about discovering what life at Monash is like – so you can explore everything from the library and lecture theatres, to our cafes, gyms and accommodation services.

How can I help my child get the most out of Open Day?

We’ll have more than 500 activities going on across our campuses, so encouraging your child to plan ahead with the online planner is a good idea.

Should I come?

Yes, definitely. This is a time when students will need advice and help making the right decisions for their future, and a lot of them will turn to their families for that. And if they’d like to explore on their own for a while, there are plenty of cafes for you to enjoy.

How can I help my child find the right course?

This can be a really difficult time for students, as they try to navigate the huge range of courses available to them. To help them figure out what the best path might be, try asking them some open-ended question that will encourage them to think about their passions, strengths and goals:

  • "What do you love doing most?"
  • "What are you best at?"
  • "Which careers appeal to you?"
  • "What would you like to achieve by the time you're 30?"
  • "Do you know what's on offer? It's not just about courses – what about study abroad opportunities, leadership programs, and recreational activities."
  • "Have you completed, or are you completing, the right VCE subjects?"

From there, you can make a shortlist together, and decide on some back up options in case your child doesn’t get into their first course or university preference. Monash Open Day is a great place to ask questions about career paths, courses and pathways.

Remember, while this is an important decision, many people change their career paths a number of times throughout their life. That’s why at Monash we equip our students with general skills like communication, negotiation and leadership, as well as academic ones.

We have developed a glossary of terms to assist you in understanding key terms.
