Monash University pulls back curtain on world-leading research
Monash University is opening its doors to the public for the annual Monash University Open Day on Sunday 18 August.
Ranked third in the world for its programs in Pharmacy and Pharmacology, the esteemed Parkville’s campus is offering an exclusive sneak peek at pharmacy in action through interactive tours, virtual reality experiences, hands on activities and an Escape Room.
This year’s theme ‘A World without Monash’ asks the public to reflect on a world without change, research and the ambition to tackle the problems impacting our world including climate change, and medication accessibility.
Attendees will get the chance to chat to researchers, lecturers, scientists and current students to find out what inspires them to improve treatments for infectious diseases and develop next generation drugs.
Monash University Parkville is noted for groundbreaking treatments that are changing lives around the world, including the flu vaccine, Relenza, and a new inhaled form of Oxytocin aimed at reducing maternal deaths caused by blood loss in vulnerable communities.
Ranked number three in the world for Pharmacy and Pharmacology by the QS World University Rankings, students are offered the only undergraduate pharmacy program in
Australia which also gives them a Masters qualification and internship all in five years.
The university collaborates with industry leaders, research centres and major pharmaceutical companies to give students a firsthand chance to learn how pharmacy and pharmaceutical science research works in the real world.
While Open Day is an exclusive opportunity for prospective students to get a feel for campus life, Monash University encourages everyone to tour the campus, learn about the research and talk with staff and students about their future career paths, overseas study and internships.
Prospective students are encouraged to plan their day through the Monash University Open Day Planner.
