The world is changing fast. If you’re at high school now, you may eventually choose an occupation that doesn’t yet exist. And you’ll almost certainly have several careers over your lifetime. That’s why we’ve designed our courses to give you the knowledge to confidently embark on a specific profession, plus the skills and networks to explore possibilities in your future.

Choose from a suite of courses
. They all allow you to graduate with a focused, relevant, accredited qualification, but there are different programs for different learning styles. That's because the Monash way of learning is versatile and flexible, genuinely interdisciplinary and focused on career outcomes.

We often involve industry partners in course design and delivery, so that you can graduate at the forefront of industry knowledge. And, of course, we're researchers — we create knowledge as well as deliver it. That research feeds straight back into our classrooms, keeping you abreast of global academic developments.

Of course, university isn't just about study. Our goal is to enrich you academically, professionally and personally, so that when you graduate, you're ready for anything.

If you're up for it, we have heaps of ways to help you stand out from the pack. You can spend time studying overseas or embark on one of our leadership programs, all of which differ in length and focus, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your goals.

We can put you in touch with work placements and programs , internships and volunteer opportunities.

Add all this to the many groups, societies and events, and you have the opportunity to pack half a lifetime's experience into your four or so years on campus.

Monash is one of the world's top 100 universities. According to the Global Employability Rankings, leaders from the world's most successful companies consistently rate Monash as a preferred university from which to hire graduates.

But while our rankings and reputation mean we can compete with the 'traditional' universities, we don't plan on becoming one. We're a young university, with a proud history of risk-taking and challenging the status quo. We think that gives us the best of both worlds — the qualities and reputation of an old-school university and the openness and ambition of youth.
