Monash is a big University. In fact, it's the biggest in Australia, but that's not exactly what we mean. Monash has reach.
We are in a unique position to consider education and research from a global perspective. We are the only Australian university active on four continents, with campuses in Australia, Malaysia and South Africa; an education and research Centre in Prato, Italy; a joint research academy with the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in Mumbai, India; the Southeast University-Monash University Joint - Graduate School (Suzhou) in China; as well as a recently-cemented alliance - the first of its kind in the world - with the University of Warwick in the UK.
Beyond our bricks and mortar presence we have significant partnerships with 16 leading universities in North America, Europe, the UK, Africa and Asia. Following recent endorsement by China's Ministry of Education, the Southeast University-Monash University Joint Graduate School (Suzhou) will officially welcome its first students in mid 2012. Located in Suzhou, near Shanghai, the Graduate School will feature postgraduate courses in disciplines including nanotechnology, biomedicine, environmental science, transportation, industrial design, economics, as well as software, thermal and mechanical engineering.
A global experience
Our global network gives Monash students more opportunities to experience different cultures and ways of seeing the world. Our programs and travel grants make it easy for you to spend a semester or more at one of our international campuses or academic partners. In fact, we've developed innovative degrees, like the Bachelor of Arts (Global), which make it compulsory to study abroad.
Through the Monash Passport – an education approach that offers a broad menu of opportunities to students – you can also volunteer or intern with different charities worldwide.
