Accounting international study program

Our programs are on hold for 2020.

In line with Monash University’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Australian Governments worldwide travel advice of “Do not travel” we are not currently offering our global study experiences for 2020.

During this time we are reviewing our study tour program as we plan for 2021 and beyond. If you’d like to have your say on the programs we offer in the future we’d love to hear from you here.


The international study program is an exciting way to experience and explore how culture affects accounting, banking and finance practices. It provides students with the conceptual foundations on the functions and institutions of the international financial system and accounting standard setting process.  Students will be able to gain a practical understanding of issues in international accounting, banking & finance through visiting international organisations.

Countries visited include: Italy, Germany, France, England and Switzerland.

Approximate costs for the overseas component of the program are expected to be AUD$6,900 (including all travel, transfers, accommodation and some meals.  It does not include all your meals and any further spending money. However, every student accepted into the program has the potential to qualify for a department grant of AUD$500. Standard unit fees will apply and are in addition to the travel cost.

Prior to our travel, students will be required to participate in an “in class” learning session in mid-late November, ie after the semester 2 exams have been completed.

You can apply for both the accounting and banking and finance programs but you will only be accepted into one of the programs/units.

There are 30 places available - 15 Banking & Finance and 15 Accounting.

ACX3500 is a Capstone for all Business & Commerce degrees, single or double.
