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.

I've attended Monash Open Day, what should I do next?

If you’ve already attended Open Day at our Peninsula, Caulfield and Clayton campuses and have more questions, you can call us on 1800 MONASH, email or visit our website to find out more about our courses. If this is your first degree (undergraduate degree), make sure your VTAC preferences reflect your choices in courses.

How do I choose which campus to visit?

It’s best to visit the campus where you’ll be studying – our Parkville campus is home to Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. If you missed Open Day at our Peninsula, Clayton and Caulfield campuses, you’re welcome to come on campus anytime and find out what Monash is like.

How do I get to the campus?

Our Parkville campus is easily accessible by public transport (you'll find details in the 'How to get to campus' section above.

Is there free car parking on campus?

If you choose to drive, limited parking is available on the streets surrounding our Parkville campus. Please note, this is public parking and subject to council fees and restrictions.

Do I have to use the online planner?

No, you can organise your visit however you like. Just remember, there are lots of activities going on around Monash on Open Day, so you might like to prepare your visit and print off your plan.

There’ll also be Monash Open Day programs with information on where each study area and support service is located available on the day, if you’d prefer not to plan everything out before you come.

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?

It’s a good idea to have a list of questions with you, to make sure you get all the information you need. As well as asking about your course, you might be interested to know:

  • How will Monash help me get a job when I finish studying?
  • What are the benefits of studying a double degree?
  • Can I travel and study at the same time?
  • Are there leadership programs I can get involved with?
  • What are my accommodation options?
  • How much does university accommodation cost?
  • What scholarships and support are offered? Do I qualify?
  • What sports and other facilities does the university have? Are these free to use?
  • What student clubs could I join?
  • 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 international students guaranteed university accommodation?
  • What special support services are available for international students?

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.

Is there anywhere to eat on campus?

Absolutely. There are cafes on campus with a variety of delicious options to choose from.

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

We’ll have lots of activities going on across our campus, 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 questions 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.
