Amazing experiences beyond the classroom .
Go on an overseas exchange with one of our 140 partner universities around the world , or spend a semester or two at one of our four campuses in Melbourne .

A full-time transfer to Monash Australia to complete the remainder of your studies is also possible , furthering your globally enriching and rewarding educational experience .
How studying abroad can give you an edge
There are many benefits to studying overseas . Research has shown that students with international study experience :
• have better grades throughout their degree
• are more employable once they graduate
• earn more throughout their career .
You ’ ll expand your worldview through experiencing different cultures and ways of doing things . You ’ ll build your self-confidence , and be more adaptable and independent . You ’ ll also develop skills in effective communication , collaboration and time management .
