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.
