Study Abroad at Monash University

  • Melbourne was ranked the World's Most Liveable City by The Economist in 2012 and 2013.

  • Monash typifies a modern Australian university.

  • There are 40,000 students and a large international student population.

  • It is comprehensive, with thousands of courses offered on campuses on three continents.


With two locations in Melbourne you'll also have all the activities that Australia's second largest city offers at your doorstep. If you are looking for a study abroad environment that is similar to a large suburban research university experience, then Monash’s campuses in and around Melbourne may be for you.

A world-class business program, strong programs in Australian and Asian studies, and modern laboratories for students interested in engineering and the sciences are just a few of the academic reasons to consider Monash. A particularly strong department of Communications offers an opportunity to focus on new media as well as virtual cultures and youth media.

Students looking for a more intimate campus setting should consider Monash’s Gippsland campus, located over 100 miles from Melbourne. Gippsland offers excellent student support and the campus is highly integrated, offering multiple opportunities for students to meet Australian students both in the on-campus apartments (where Arcadia program students live with local students) and in class. Golf enthusiasts will also be interested to know that Gippsland has its very own golf course!
