Monash University is a member of the Group of Eight, an alliance of leading Australian universities recognised for their excellence in teaching and research. Group of Eight universities produce graduates who find full-time employment sooner, begin on higher salaries, and are more likely to move onto postgraduate studies than graduates from other Australian universities.
Within a short 50 years, we have achieved an enviable reputation for research and teaching excellence and are consistently ranked in the world's top 100 universities.
The quality of our teaching and exceptional facilities are just two of the many reasons we’re consistently ranked in the top 100 universities in the world.
The thing that is most special about Monash is our desire to make a difference. You’ll leave with a greater sense of purpose, a global outlook, and the skills and confidence to make a positive change – to your own life, and to the lives of those around you.
Your Study Options
Just because you study with Monash doesn't mean you always have to study at Monash. We also offer off-campus study.
It can help you to balance academic, work and family life, as you are able to progress through your course at a pace that suits you.
There is a world of options to explore. Wherever you choose to go, we can help you get started.
Mature age students
Life presents all sorts of challenges, and there are many reasons why some people don't go to university straight after they finish school. It doesn't matter what your route to university was – if you're ready to learn, we're ready to engage.
The way you apply differs depending on where you’ve come from, and where you’re headed.
You want to study a coursework degree at a postgraduate level.
You want to study a research degree – a master's by research, doctorate (PhD), or professional doctorate.
When your application is received, we will assess your application against university entrance requirements including: minimum age, English and academic entry requirements. Monash University is obliged to check that you are genuinely seeking temporary entry to Australia to study. If the University forms the opinion that you are not a Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) it may refuse to assess your application, withdraw an offer of a place, or cancel your confirmation of enrolment. In some cases applicants will be referred to their closest Monash registered agent to proceed with their university application and to assist with the GTE assessment and visa arrangements.
If your application is successful, we will make you a full offer. We will email this to you and to your agent, if you have one.
If we are not able to make you a full offer immediately, you may receive a conditional offer. A conditional offer means you must submit more information before we can send you a full offer. Usually, the information we need is final results, the results of an English exam, or transcripts. We will explain in the email.
You can check your credit or admission eligibility using the study credit and admissions eligibility search.
The world is changing and we understand that you might be wondering what your Monash experience will look like now.
As a leading, global university, you can be assured we have all the tools, support and resources you need to study online, on campus and everything in between.
