  • If you are enrolled in a Bachelor of Medicine or Bachelor of Pharmacy you cannot currently go overseas on exchange or study abroad, you can however apply do an Intercampus Exchange to Sunway.
  • Some faculties/schools may not permit you to undertake overseas study in the final semester of your course; check with your faculty or school before completing this application.
  • If you are currently on intermission you may be able to apply; contact the Monash Abroad office first to check eligibility.
  • If you are a Monash part-time and/or off-campus learning student you can participate in the exchange program but must study a full-time load of on-campus units while overseas. Open University students are not eligible.
  • You may not undertake any Distance Education or Off-Campus Learning units at Monash while you are on your overseas program.
