Now that you have chosen your Monash University undergraduate course, you need to submit your course preferences. If you are studying your Monash University Foundation Year in Australia, you may have already received a packaged offer with your Monash University course. You are still required to submit your course preferences. It is your decision on whether you select the same course, or a different one.
List up to five course preferences. Be realistic with your preferences and weigh up all of your options. We assess your applications in the order you've chosen, so place the course you'd most like to do at the top, your second choice in second place, and so on. If you meet the requirements of your first preference, we send you an offer and do not look at the rest of your preferences. If you don't meet the requirements of your first preference, we then assess you for your second preference.
If you do not meet the entry requirements of any of your preferences, we automatically assess your application for a Monash College Diploma in your chosen study area.
This process is only for Monash University Foundation year students wishing to study at Monash University in Australia. Course preferences must be submitted online.
Do not submit your form through a Monash Registered Agent. You may seek the assistance of a Monash Registered Agent after you receive a Monash University or Monash College offer for the purpose of accepting your offer, changing your course preference after results are released, visa application or submitting a new application, if applicable.
Note: If you are unable to enrol in the next available intake/semester, then please add the future intake/semester you will be able to enrol.
- For Semester 2, 2022 intake, the online submissions will open from 1 - 31 May 2022
- You do not need to send your MUFY results to Monash University. If you are successful in meeting all the admission requirements of one of your course preferences, Monash University will email you an offer. We will use the email address you provided in your online course preference submission form, so remember to check it!
Accept your offer
To accept your offer, follow the instructions in your offer letter by the lapse date as stipulated in the offer letter.
- Accept your offer and Monash will then send you a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
Change your course preference or defer your studies
You can change your course preference after you receive your MUFY results. Submit your request to change your course preference as quickly as possible,
Monash College Diploma option
A Monash College Diploma offers a direct pathway into second year at Monash University. You can fast-track your studies by completing first year university subjects in just 8 to 12 months.
To be accepted into a Monash College Diploma, you must meet the academic and English language requirements, as well as age and subject or special prerequisites.
The last date for MUFY students to change their course preference to Monash College Diploma courses commencing June 2022 is Wednesday, 22 June 2022. Any late applications will be processed for the next Diploma intake commencing in October 2022.
I did not meet English language requirement. What do I do?
Achieving the minimum required English proficiency level is essential to gaining admission to your Monash University course. If you did not achieve the required Foundation Year English subject score for direct entry, you may qualify for admission to the Monash English Bridging (MEB*) program. Minimum Foundation Year English score will be required for admission to the MEB program.
(*) Please note - some Monash University undergraduate courses do not accept MEB as meeting the English language requirements. For a course list refer to the relevant Progression Guide.
Alternatively, you may also submit an English proficiency test score, such as IELTS, TOEFL or Pearson Test of English (Academic).
Receiving your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) and enrolment package
A CoE will be emailed to you or your Monash Registered Agent when you have accepted your full offer (ISCA) or packaged offer (ISCA) (with no academic conditions specified). You will need the CoE to apply for a student visa.
If you have already accepted a packaged offer (Monash University Foundation Year program with a Monash University undergraduate packaged offer) and decide to change your course preference or defer your course commencement date, you will be provided with a new CoE once you accept the new offer. You must ensure you provide the new CoE to the Australian Department of Home Affairs.
After you have received your CoE, you will receive an email with details on how to enrol in your units.
Enrol in units
You will need to enrol in your units online as soon as you have met all the conditions of your offer and have received notification via email. Failure to enrol in your units by the deadline will result in you being unable to start your course this semester.
Please go to the Get Started website and follow the instructions to enrol in units.
Please check the Get Started website.
