FAQ

We highly encourage family and friends of future students to come along too!

Which campus should I visit?

Each of our four campuses are unique. At Open Day, our campuses generally promote the courses they offer, so we recommend checking which campus has your preferred course.

Of course, you're welcome to visit multiple campuses. We'll also have a free shuttle bus between Clayton and Caulfield campuses to make it easy to get between the two on Open Day.

Do I have to register to attend Open Day?

We recommend registering your interest so we can keep in touch with you in the lead-up to Open Day and beyond. We'll send you tips to help you plan your day and highlight activities we think you may be interested in.

How can I prepare for Open Day?

With more than 500 activities happening around our campuses on Open Day including tours, info sessions, live performances and more, it helps to plan ahead. We’ll be launching our Open Day online planner in late-May. You'll be able to create a personalised plan and keep track of everything you want to see and do.

Are there other opportunities to experience Monash before Open Day?

Absolutely! Monash Information Evenings are a great way to have all your questions answered in your local area. You can also find out what it's like to study at Monash by attending one of our Inside Monash seminars.

You're also welcome to visit our Caulfield, Clayton, Parkville and Peninsula campuses at anytime. You can book a guided tour or use our campus maps to explore at your own pace.

As a parent, 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 study options available to them. To help them figure out what the best path might be, try asking them some open-ended questions that will encourage them to think about their passions, strengths and goals. 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 preference.

We've also put together some resources for parents to give you a better idea of the transition to university.
