Information for interstate students studying in Australia
To assist you in your transition from an Australian secondary school to university, we have compiled some key information you need to make the best decision for your future.
Course Finder provides information on all Monash courses, and is the best starting point for information about a course’s English language and other subject requirements. Ensure you’ve clicked ‘I’m a Domestic student’, found in the top right corner of the site.
Sometimes the international student VCE ATAR or IB Diploma requirement may differ from the domestic indicative scores shown in our domestic course guides. The 2023 Course Guides are available for you to download across each faculty as well as other recourses such as Access, Pathways and Scholarship brochures.
The online handbook gives detailed information about course structure and units of study. Note that some courses are not available to international students, or have particular requirements.

At Monash, we know an ATAR doesn’t always reflect a student’s true potential. Our entry schemes are designed to create a level playing field and take your circumstances into consideration as part of your course application.
The Monash Guarantee
Through the Monash Guarantee, you can receive an offer for a course (or access to an interview or audition) even if your ATAR is below the required rank. The Monash Guarantee is available to students who are financially disadvantaged, come from an under-represented school, live in a low socio-economic area or identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS)
SEAS takes into consideration a range of circumstances that can affect your ability to achieve the ATAR score you deserve. Through SEAS, your aggregate score is adjusted and your ATAR recalculated, increasing your chances of receiving an offer.
Are you eligible for the Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS)? Check out our SEAS calculator for an estimate of your adjusted ATAR.
Indigenous student applications
Monash University is committed to advancing the education and career aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We have a range of admissions entry points for Indigenous applicants designed to address the under-representation of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Australian universities.

We know that living away from home can be a costly experience. There are additional costs associated with living and studying in Melbourne, so it’s a good idea to plan and prepare a budget. We’ve compiled a guide to some additional and estimated costs of living.
