    Monash University 

    Monash University Is the largest university in Australia, ranked in the world's top 100 and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight.  We're named after Sir John Monash, and fuelled by his desire for our students to leave here with a greater sense of purpose, and the skills and confidence to create positive change. 

    In under 60 years, we've grown from a single campus into an education and research powerhouse with a presence on four continents, committed to the challenges of the age.

    Partnerships in industry and government

    Home to various precincts of innovation, we foster collaboration across traditional and unexpected disciplines.  We build teams and form links, we bring together diverse minds - researchers, companies, businesses and technology - creating knowledge hubs of the future.
