English language requirements

To study an undergraduate or postgraduate course at Monash, you must satisfy our English language requirements. Some courses have higher English language requirements than others.

Monash assess your proficiency using your most recent test. Even if you've done several tests or assessments over the years, we only consider the last one.

If you have not met the English language requirements from your previous studies, you are able to undertake English language proficiency tests to gain entry into your preferred Monash course. The University reserves the right to require that an applicant undergo a test of English proficiency.

If your English test result does not satisfy English language requirements into your chosen course, the Monash University English Language Centre offers English language programs which provide the best chance of transitioning into Monash University.

To view the minimum English language requirements refer to the Admission to Coursework Courses and Units of Study Procedures.

Other requirements

If you are an international student applying for a student visa, other than assessing your application against the above entry requirements, Monash University is obliged to check that you are genuinely seeking temporary entry to Australia to study. If the University forms the opinion that you are not a Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) (as specified on Department of Home Affairs Genuine temporary entrant requirement for student visa application), it may refuse to assess your application, withdraw an offer of a place, or cancel your confirmation of enrolment.

The University reserves the right to request additional information and conduct a face to face interview in relation to GTE check.
