Monash Malaysia campus opens
5 September 2007
The start of a new era
The opening of the Malaysia campus was an important milestone that showed the strength of Monash University's commitment to Malaysia and the region.
The Malaysian campus came about as the result of a partnership between the University and the Sunway Group, which created a joint venture company. All profits are re-invested back into the campus.
There are more than 3,300 students on the campus, studying courses which include biotechnology, medicine, science, arts, business and economics, information technology and engineering. Postgraduate and research higher degree programs have commenced and an active research program is in place with support from the Malaysian Government and industry sources.
Academic standards are the same as for courses in Australia, with Australian faculties having responsibility for course approvals and quality control.
