Named after prominent Australian Sir John Monash, Monash University was established by an Act of Parliament in 1958. It was the first university established in the State of Victoria for 106 years.
Our first campus opened in 1961 in Clayton. The first intake was a modest 347 students.
Since then, we have grown into a network of campuses, centres and partners around the world. There are currently more than 59,000 students enrolled at Monash from over 170 countries.
Monash students have a long history of putting theory into action. In the early days of activism on campus, students were involved in politics, Vietnam War protests and the second wave of feminism. More recently, we see this desire to act through our students' involvement in anti-poverty campaigns, volunteering and programs to create a green, sustainable campus.
We offer courses in architecture, biosciences, health, law, business, engineering, science, humanities and culture, design and creative art, education, information technology and communication.
We have created a thriving cultural atmosphere with outstanding performing arts and concert programs and a growing collection of contemporary Australian art.
