At Monash it's all about choice. You choose the type of skills you want to develop, you choose when you are ready to specialise, and you choose what sort of experiences you want to have and when you want to have them.
By the time you graduate, you'll have the knowledge, skills and desire to make a positive impact on the world.
The Monash Passport
We know our students are smart when they arrive. That's why our education model - the Monash Passport - is a 'why wait' model. It is designed to improve your career prospects and enrich your personal development.
The four programs of the Monash Passport are:
- Act: providing you with opportunities to bring about change through community engagement, work-integrated learning activities and student-to-student learning.
- Enhance: preparing you to be a critical and creative thinker who can produce innovative solutions to multifaceted problems or to be a future leader.
- Explore: providing you with international experiences and perspectives through study abroad or collaboration between the University's Australian and international campuses.
- Investigate: encouraging you to develop research skills and discover new knowledge through research challenge units or vacation research projects.
Many Monash Passport programs will appear on your Australian Higher Education Graduate Statement, giving you an edge when you begin your career.
Learn through volunteering
We encourage students to volunteer with a wide range of not-for-profit organisations. Volunteering allows you to help other people and strengthen communities in meaningful ways. At the same time, you gain valuable, career-enhancing skills, build confidence and develop networks. Find out about volunteering opportunities at Monash.
Create international networks
With campuses on four continents and more than 115 partner institutions in 26 countries, we make it easy for you to study abroad. We also bring the world to you, with IT innovations that connect our students worldwide.
Fast-track your career
We offer work experience and industry placement programs - giving you the opportunity to translate theory to practice and develop connections to enhance your career prospects. Some conditions may apply for international students due to visa requirements.
Learn to lead
Being a leader can benefit your life and career. But not everyone is born with leadership ability - so Monash offers some engaging and interactive programs to develop your leadership skills.
Add depth to your degree
Students can participate in a number of multi-disciplinary, cross-university units and opportunities. Depth units give you access to experts and professionals within your field, and outside it.
Increase your options
We put you in the driver's seat. Choose a single degree or a double degree. Take subjects from another discipline or add a specialist diploma to your degree. You can even choose to study all or some of your course online.
Get on track with research
