Who was Sir John Monash?
Sir John Monash was an Australian leader, statesman and nation-builder who contributed to almost every level of Australian life. As well as a long and distinguished military career, Sir John was a renowned engineer and public administrator. He also features on the Australian $100 note. He was a man who used education to turn his natural talent into ability, allowing him to realise his daring ambitions. Not only do we carry Sir John’s name, we also take inspiration from his philosophy of life. Although Monash University is named after an individual, the University is a public government-funded and accredited institution. Our motto, Ancora Imparo (“I am still learning”), captures the essence of his approach to life.

“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

Melbourne – the world’s most liveable city.
In a ranking of cities all around the world, Melbourne is consistently ranked number one as the world’s “most liveable” city (Economist Intelligence Unit 2011 – 2013). This ranking is based on standards of education, infrastructure, culture and environment, healthcare and stability.

Where Monash can take you

“In addition to meeting like-minded individuals, the Ancora Imparo program allows me to learn about leadership from an Australian point of view, broadening my understanding about the world. The program will also provide me with a sense of personal satisfaction as it encourages participants to share the training and experience gained with the whole community.”

Get more than a degree
While your degree tells an employer what you know, the experiences you have during and after your degree give them clues as to who you are.
Employers look for a range of things in new graduates: practical experience, people skills, communication skills, problem-solving, adaptability, and the potential for leadership. Monash offers a range of opportunities to start building your career before you graduate, boosting your appeal to employers. Some of them offer industry-based learning built into the course. These help you to put what you have learned into action. Others are wider in focus and help you to develop the leadership skills, communication skills and problem-solving skills that employers value.

Industry-based learning programs matched to your study
Professional recognition for your career
For some careers you must register with a professional organisation before you can practise. For instance, completion of the Bachelor of Nursing means you are eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia as a nurse. In most of these courses, practical experience is a significant part of your course. Courses that require you to undertake placements in the workforce include teaching, nursing, medicine, pharmacy and law.

Leadership programs
Along with knowledge, problem-solving and communication, leadership is one of the most important skills you can learn. We offer a range of student leadership programs to help you develop your ability to lead and inspire others.

Ancora Imparo
The Vice-Chancellor’s Ancora Imparo program is open to first-year students for participation in second year. Successful students are selected based on a 500-word essay on leadership. Over the course of the year they participate in a three-day residential workshop, forums and presentations, hearing from Australia’s most inspired leaders on the challenges facing effective leaders.

Other leadership programs
There are many other leadership programs run by faculties. Some programs are by invitation, based on your academic achievements, and others are open for application. A full range of leadership programs can be found at: monash.edu.au/about/leadership/student-programs

Industry-based learning
Many of our courses offer industry-based learning within the degree. Options vary from semester-long subjects to facilitated internships and work experience programs. This experience will help you to understand where your strengths lie and give you insight into specialisations you may want to pursue. Conditions apply.

Expand your international experience
An international study experience shows employers that you are adaptable, resourceful and independently motivated. Your exposure to other cultures often broadens your capacity for creative problem solving. As an international student, you can expand on your Australian study experience by taking an exchange, study tour, or international internship in another country.

Theme studies

Academic pathways

Your education degree covers four themes. Each theme focuses on a different element, ensuring you are thoroughly prepared for a career as an educator.

Monash University Foundation Year
The Monash University Foundation Year is the preferred pathway into the Faculty of Education. The program is designed to prepare international students with the skills and knowledge required to succeed at Monash University. After successfully completing the Foundation Year program and meeting the entry requirements and prerequisites, you will have a guaranteed place in the first year of your education degree. For more information on the Monash University Foundation Year and entry requirements visit: monashcollege.edu.au/foundation-year

Education studies
The Education studies theme will give you a comprehensive understanding of the theory of education in varied settings. You will learn by researching the relationship between education and society at local, national and global levels. By the final year you will have the knowledge and skills required to take on leadership roles in education settings and schools.

Curriculum studies
The Curriculum studies theme encourages you to become skilled, critical and effective educators through understanding what and how children and young people learn in particular areas. You will learn how to design, plan and implement engaging, innovative and productive educational experiences and how to teach to meet diverse learners’ needs.

Discipline studies
The Discipline studies theme focuses on developing your content knowledge in the areas you will teach, whether in schools or other education settings. In some specialisations your discipline studies will be a part of your curriculum studies units, while in others you will take them separately. For example, if you are studying a double degree, such as with the Bachelor of Arts, then your companion degree will be your discipline studies.

Double degrees

The Bachelor of Education (Honours), in the Primary and Secondary specialisations only, can be studied as part of a double degree. A double degree means you graduate with two qualifications instead of one. And it may be done in the same time as completing a single education degree.

Professional studies
The Professional studies theme is where you gain your practical teaching experience so you are classroom-ready on the day you graduate. You will complete a minimum of 80 days of supervised placement in settings relevant to your teaching specialisation. These placements will enhance what you learned in your Theme studies with the practical aspects of teaching and learning. Professional studies also covers research units where you learn to independently research education topics, and may provide a pathway to further research-based study.

Application process for international students
When should you apply?
Apply as early as possible. Some courses have application closing dates two to four months prior to the start of the course, while others have quotas. Aim to have your application received by International Recruitment Services at least two to four months prior to the course start date. This allows time for your application to be processed and can help to ensure that you secure a place if your preferred course has limited places. Applying early also gives you time to get your student visa, which can take up to six months for some nationalities and countries.

Off-campus study
Applications for most courses are accepted all year round, but students should apply as early as possible as some courses have limited places. International applicants outside Australia wishing to study programs via off-campus learning (study from home) should apply online. For further information visit: monash.edu/offcampus or email offcampus@ monash.edu.au

International students undertaking Australian Year 12 or International Baccalaureate (IB) in Australia
International students who are undertaking an Australian Year 12 qualification (for example VCE or equivalent) or IB in Australia must apply through Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). For further information please visit www.vtac.edu.au

How to apply
Step 1 – Apply
To apply online please refer to the following website for a stepby-step guide: monash.edu/how-to-apply To submit a hard-copy application to Monash University Australia, complete the International Application Form located at the back of this guide, ensuring that all sections are completed and the declaration is signed and dated before you send the application. Send your completed application form, all certified documents* and a A$100 application fee (payable by credit card, money order or bank draft) to: International Recruitment Services 871 Dandenong Road Caulfield East Victoria, 3145 Australia Email: mu.documents@monash. edu You may wish to apply through a Monash registered agent. Some agents may charge a fee for additional services so please ask what these costs are before you make an appointment. To find a Monash registered agent near you please visit monash.edu/agents * Refer to Section I of the International Application Form for certification information. All documents submitted remain the property of Monash University.
n

Checking the status of your application Once your application is received and entered into our database Monash will send an acknowledgement email to you and your agent, if you have one. This email will contain an Account ID and password. Use this ID to check the status of your application at applicant.connect.monash.edu.au/ connect/webconnect. Applying for credit Monash University may grant credit for subjects with satisfactory grades that have been undertaken at other recognised tertiary institutions if:
n

Step 2 – Your application is assessed
When your application is received, Monash University will assess your application according to university entry requirements. To comply with Australian law your application will be assessed to check that you are genuinely seeking temporary entry to Australia to study. If your application is successful, you will receive a full International Student Course Agreement (ISCA). This will be emailed to you and your Monash registered agent (if you have one). Instructions will be supplied on how to accept your offer, including the fees and Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) you need to pay. If we are not able to make you a full ISCA immediately, you may receive a conditional ISCA. A conditional ISCA means you must submit more information and meet the requirements specified in the ISCA. Usually, the information we need is documentation (for example official final transcript, graduation certificate or an English proficiency test) to see if you meet the specific entry requirements for the course you have applied for. We will explain what is needed in the ISCA. Please submit the documentation to us as soon as possible or contact us if you need any help.

If we are unable to offer you your first preference we will consider your application for the next preference or for a pathway program through Monash College (Foundation Year or Diploma).

Step 3 – Accepting your offer
