Information sessions

First Step Sessions

The first step to take when considering a global experience is to attend a Monash Abroad First Steps session. At this session we’ll cover

  • types of programs available
  • whether you are eligible
  • how to register for semester exchange and study abroad
  • how you can finance your trip

In addition to weekly First Step sessions, there are region, faculty and occasionally institution-specific information sessions offered at times during semester.

Regional Advising Sessions

After attending a First Steps session, you must attend a Regional Advising Session.
In these sessions, our Monash Abroad International Education Coordinators can provide region-specific information and advice. The Regional Advising Sessions are compulsory to attend if wishing to undertake a semester exchange program.
