Established in 1958, Monash is the youngest member of the highly regarded Group of Eight universities. In just over 50 years we've grown to become the largest university in Australia, renowned for our outstanding teaching, transformative research, international reach and extensive alumni network (now extending to more than 270,000 members across the world).
Monash is a global university possessing the ambition and ability to address momentous global challenges. We have campuses in Australia, Malaysia and South Africa (as well as an education centre in Italy), and major partnerships with universities in China, India and the UK.
Partnerships - local and globalMonash has an impressive record of long-term, successful relationships with industry, government and the community. Our partnerships and engagement programs range from close links with immediate neighbours to groundbreaking collaborations with organisations around the world.
The Monash Warwick AllianceIn 2012, we established a landmark alliance with Warwick University in the UK, aiming to redefine the very concept of a global university. A priority of the alliance is to deliver a seamless international experience to students and prepare them for life in the global labour market.
Southeast University-Monash University Joint Graduate School (Suzhou)In 2012, Monash became the first Australian university to receive a licence to operate in China. Our international collaboration at Suzhou with the Southeast University (SEU) - one of China's key national universities - will produce postgraduates and researchers with ideas to change people's lives in the region and the world for the better.
The IITB Monash Research AcademyLocated in north-eastern Mumbai, the IITB Monash Research Academy is a partnership between the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) and Monash University. The institution is focused on providing innovative research outcomes for industries in India and Australia.
Our philosophyChange lies at the heart of our philosophy. We encourage our students to change their own lives so that they can go on to change the lives of others.
This desire to make a difference informs everything we do, not least of all our research. Already widely known for achievements in areas like health, accident prevention, sustainability and chemistry, Monash researchers make an impact well beyond the academic sphere. They work towards discoveries that have the potential to transform people's lives for the better, not only in Australia, but throughout the world.
