Our friendly ambassadors are here to show you around and answer your questions on the day.
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.

Should I go to Monash Open Day at more than one campus?
You don’t have to, but it’ll be easy to get between them on the day if you’d like to attend activities at different campuses. It’s a good idea to use the planner to make sure you’ve seen everything you want at one campus before you move on to the next.
Is there free car parking on campus?

No, you can organise your visit however you like. Just remember, there are more than 550 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 name and email address and then you can make as many changes as you’d like.
What are some good questions to ask at Open Day?
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 courses, you might be interested to know:
- How does Monash help me get a job when I finish studying?

Are all faculties at all 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 out which one is right for you by looking up your preferred courses.
What should I do when I get to the campus?
If you don’t have a printed copy of the program, the first thing to do is grab a hard copy – so you know everything is. Then start looking for our friendly staff and student ambassadors to help point you in the right direction (they’ll be out and about in blue 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 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?
On Open Day, there’s lots of free food and drinks on offer for visitors. And all our campuses have lots of other cafes and food options too.
How can I help my child get the most out of Open Day?
We’ll have more than 550 activities going on across our campuses, so encouraging your child to plan ahead with the online planner is recommended.
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 son or daughter 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 prerequisite 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.
