Adopt as your fundamental creed that you will equip yourself for life, not solely for your own benefit but for the benefit of the whole community.
- Sir John Monash
By using these words as a guide, Monash has created a unique education approach - the Monash Passport.
The Monash Passport helps our students get more from their degree and more from their time at Monash. It's a series of programs designed to improve career prospects and enrich students' personal lives.
The Passport exposes students to experiences and people that they might not otherwise have encountered, encouraging them to connect with, and contribute to, the University's research challenges. It can put students on an accelerated pathway to postgraduate study and allow them access to frontier technologies and new generation learning spaces, within and across national boundaries.
Passport provides the opportunity to volunteer within the University and in the broader community, join leadership programs, gain first hand industry experience and much more.
It consists of five programs. Each program is made up of a number of units and opportunities. (The amount varies from program to program.) How many units and programs students participate in is up to them.
Learn through volunteering
Our Act Program shows students how to turn theory into action - to take what they're learning, and apply it to the real world.
Opportunities such as volunteering, internships, peer-assisted learning programs and industry-based learning programs provide students with the proof that they can make a difference.
Create international networks
The Explore Program aims to give students a broader world-view, opening them up to new ideas and challenging viewpoints. Students can gain international experience and are exposed to different cultures, different environments and different perspectives.
Fast track your career
The Enhance Program can help students get deeper into a career, sooner. It can also provide them with knowledge and skills across a broad range of industries and disciplines.
The Monash Passport provides students the chance to participate in a number of multi-disciplinary, cross-university units and opportunities. Students get access to experts and professionals within their field, and outside it.
Students learn to build knowledge by learning the principles of research, getting hands-on experience and applying it in real world situations.
Start research early
The Investigate Program is our students' entry to Monash research.
Studying at one of Australia's most research-intensive universities gives students the opportunities to experience and immerse themselves in research from the very first day of their degree if they wish to.
Give yourself more options
The Choose Program is designed to increase students' appeal to employers by broadening horizons and widening skill sets. It provides extra qualifications, so our students have more options when they graduate.
