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.

Monash is now a truly international university, with a campus in Malaysia, a learning centre in Italy, joint research academies in India and China, and a first-of-its-kind alliance with the University of Warwick in the UK. Monash University courses are also delivered at other locations, including at Monash South Africa.

Even as its global presence continues to expand, the University remains committed to setting the standard for research and education in Australia. We operate five campuses across the greater Melbourne region. Each campus has its own unique character and each provides an environment that identifies and nurtures talent – and turns that talent into ability.
