Program Description:

Monash University

12     Monash     Koala Bear    
Voted consistently as the world’s most livable city, Melbourne is a multicultural city of 3.5 million people located in the state of Victoria on the southeastern coast of Australia. Several colleges and universities add a large student population of about 50,000. Melbourne combines a safe environment with the well-developed infrastructure and lively cultural scene of a major world city. An excellent public transport system makes it easy to get around Melbourne and to explore the natural and wildlife wonders of regional Victoria, such as the Great Ocean Road.

Monash University is one of the prestigious “Group of Eight” leading universities in Australia. It has six campuses in Australia and is building a global presence with campuses in Malaysia and South Africa. Study abroad students will study at either the Clayton or the Caulfield campuses, both of which are in greater Melbourne and a short journey by public transport from the city center.

A wide selection of course offerings are available to study abroad students in almost any subject. The faculties at Monash include:
  • Art and Design
  • Information Technology
  • Arts
  • Law
  • Psychology
  • Business & Economics
  • Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences
  • Pharmacy
  • Engineering
  • Science
Students normally enroll in 24 points per semester (usually 4 courses/units), but must take a minimum of 18 points (3 courses) in order to earn full UB credit. A course at Monash worth 6 Points will convert to 4 UB Credits. Undergraduates may choose 1000, 2000, and 3000 level courses which may count toward major, minor and general education credit with department approval. Monash has an education system which is more independent. Courses are structured as seminars or as lectures combined with small tutorial groups. Each course meets about 3 hours per week and requires about 3-5 hours of self-study per week. While researching courses, It is important to note that spring semester is Semester 1 and fall semester is Semester 2 at Monash University.

Course descriptions are available in the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Handbooks.  Students may take courses on the Clayton and Caulfield campuses, with a free shuttle running between the two campuses daily (about 25 minute commute between campuses). You may also search courses through the Unit Information link.

Please also review academic considerations and course restrictions when selecting courses.

The Clayton campus offers many halls of residence with single rooms and shared common living areas. Study abroad students are given preference, however, housing is limited and students are encouraged to meet the application deadlines. 
Monash University also has an active homestay/host family option for students who are interested. Visit the Monash University Residential Services website for further information about housing.

Housing contracts run a few weeks longer than the semester/final exam dates (early December for fall semester students and early July for spring semester students).  Students are welcome to stay in their accommodations through this date; however, will not be able to receive reimbursement if they choose to move out earlier than the housing contract end date.

Estimated costs for this program can be found at the top of this page next to Budget Sheets by clicking on the term.

UB students are encouraged to apply for study abroad scholarships. To learn more about the scholarships available to UB students, please visit our scholarships page.
