Benefits of online study
Open a world of possibilities
When you study online, you access opportunities you may not have once had.
While studying on one of our campuses offers advantages, not everybody can take time away from work and family commitments to study in-person.
Luckily, our online courses aren’t just about translating regular study material -- they’ve been specifically designed for online learning, informed by nearly 30 years of research into online delivery.
It means that no longer does studying online equate to a sub-par education. When you study with Monash, you open doors.
Learn on your own time, at your own pace
Above all else, you’ll be given the freedom to study how you want.
Want to study from a kitchen table after work? Studying online with Monash allows you to do just that.
Monash offers six intake dates during the year, so you can start whenever you’re ready.
We also offer accelerated delivery, which means you can be done and dusted with your degree sooner rather than later.
Be prepared for the future
Studying online gives you the tools and mindset needed to thrive in a digitally connected economy.
By collaborating with your fellow students and tutors remotely, you’ll develop the ways of working needed to join a globally connected workforce.
Directing your own learning will also mean you’ll be well-prepared for jobs and tasks which value remote collaboration and problem solving.
You’ll also learn the self-sufficiency and discipline needed to succeed.
