Monash is a modern, research-intensive university with a uniquely international footprint, delivering education and research excellence in Australia and across the Indo-Pacific.
We’re working hard to make positive change in the world through our education, research and alumni. In particular, we’re focused on making an impact on today’s major global challenges such as climate change, geopolitical security and healthy communities.
Our place in the world
We’re Australia’s largest university, with four Australian campuses and international campuses in Malaysia, China, India, Italy and the first foreign university campus in Indonesia. More than 70,000 students are currently studying with us, and upon graduating they become part of our active alumni community of 400,000-plus spanning four continents.
Our worldwide reputation for education and research excellence ranks us in the world’s top 100 universities (including 48th in the 2021 US News and World Report Best Global University Rankings; 64th in the 2021 Times Higher Education World University Rankings), and we’re a founding member of the Group of Eight.
Solving global challenges
As a global leader in innovative research and education, it’s our mission to solve the challenges of our age. Some of Monash’s notable achievements include the world’s first 3D-printed full-size jet engine; development of an innovative device restoring vision to the blind; and addressing global health issues through our World Mosquito Program and Revitalising Informal Settlements and their Environments (RISE) program.
We’ve made a landmark commitment to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and we’re the first Australian university to commit to an energy reduction target through our initiative to achieve net zero emissions by 2030.
Education fused with enterprise
A Monash education is global, integrated with the world of practice and taught by academics who are actively researching in their chosen fields.
We prepare students for successful careers through worldwide industry partnerships and collaboration; participation in new and innovative enterprises, including through start-ups and spinouts such as our Generator and Accelerator program; integrated work and experience; and a vast array of study options. From undergraduate (single and double), postgraduate and higher degree research, to open online courses, microcredentials, professional development and alternative pathways – we offer breadth, flexibility and choice.
We’re continually working to better ourselves and others, and provide an inclusive, diverse environment.
