Since first admitting students in 1961, Monash has earned its place among Australia's prestigious Group of Eight universities with its dedication to the highest academic standards.
Today, we are one of Australia’s leading universities, renowned for our outstanding education, our diversity of campus locations and, above all, for our research. We are not just content for our research to be considered “excellent”; we want it to lead to positive change and make a difference to the lives of people around the world.
Indeed, our research has been doing just that for half a century. Monash has built a strong international reputation in research and scholarship and made extraordinary contributions to fields including stem cell science, nanotechnology, drug development and discovery, environmental science, historical and cultural studies and road safety.
We enrol more than 60,000 students from around 170 countries at our six Australian campuses, our international campuses in Malaysia and South Africa, as well as our research and education centre in Prato, Italy. Our students and researchers also benefit from teaching and research partnerships around the globe, including the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB)-Monash Research Academy.
Among the worldwide Monash community are more than 250,000 alumni – graduates who are highly sought after by industry and whose distinguished achievements cover areas such as law, medicine, commerce, government, engineering, arts and sciences.
