Monash is a modern, global, research-intensive university, delivering education and research excellence in Australia and across the Indo-Pacific.
We’re making positive change through our education, research and alumni. We’re particularly focused on making an impact on today’s major global challenges – climate change, geopolitical insecurities and fostering healthy communities.
Our place in the world
We’re Australia’s largest university, with four Australian campuses on the lands of the Wurundjeri and the Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nations. Our international campuses are in Malaysia, China, India, Italy and the first foreign university campus in Indonesia. More than 80,000 students are currently studying with us, and we have an active alumni community of 420,000-plus across 160 countries.
Our global reputation for education and research excellence ranks us in the world’s top-100 universities (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
Our purpose to solve the challenges of the age is reflected in notable achievements, including;
We’ve made a landmark commitment to 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 global industry partnerships and collaboration; participation in innovative enterprises, including through start-ups and spinouts such as our Generator and Accelerator program; integrated work and experience; and an array of study options – undergraduate (single and double), postgraduate, higher degree research, open online courses, microcredentials, professional development and alternative pathways. We offer breadth, flexibility and choice.
We’re continually working to provide an inclusive, diverse environment and to assist in improving the lives of our communities.
