Pre-arrival briefings

We want you to feel comfortable in Australia from the moment you get here. Pre-arrival briefings are held each semester for a number of countries. Commencing international students and their families are invited to attend.

Topics include:

  • what to bring to Australia
  • customs and quarantine
  • our airport pick-up service
  • cost of living
  • accommodation
  • safety and security
  • what to attend during Orientation week
  • working while studying
  • transport
  • cultural differences
  • support services and programs

These briefings give you the opportunity to ask questions and hear from other Monash students before you arrive.

At the in-country briefings in Singapore and Malaysia, staff from Monash Residential Services will also be present to assist with any accommodation queries.

If you can’t attend or want to know more, Destination Monash is a comprehensive handbook for international students commencing at Monash.
