Monash University

Welcome to Monash University

Monash is the youngest member of the Group of Eight, the coalition of Australia’s most prestigious research-intensive universities. The university’s youthfulness shows through in the way it approaches education and research. It isn’t wedded to convention, which means students are offered a first-class education while being encouraged to become agents of change. For students, researchers and staff, that philosophy is not only about transforming their own lives but also making a difference to the lives of others.

With more than 250,000 graduates across the world, campuses in Malaysia, an education and research Centre in Italy, a joint-research academy in India, our international collaboration at Suzhou with the Southeast University (SEU) in China and our new alliance with the University of Warwick (UK), Monash University awards are delivered at other locations, including at Monash South Africa. Monash is a global university with the ambition and ability to address momentous global challenges.

Monash researchers have been leaders in areas like IVF and reproduction, road safety, malaria and influenza treatment, and stem cells for many years, and in some cases, decades.

Monash is a university of progress and optimism. It is the university’s role to tackle the big questions and meet the challenges the future holds. Above all, the university will achieve this through education and investigation, which is why Monash has an ambition to become one of the world's top research and teaching institutions.

The university’s people are its most valued asset. Monash academics are among the very best in the world, its professional staff is revolutionizing the way the university operates as an organisation and the success of its students continues to be limited only by the extent of their own imaginations.
