Who was
      Sir John
      Monash?
      Sir John Monash was an Australian leader,
      statesman and nation-builder who contributed
      to almost every level of Australian life.

      As well as having a long and distinguished
      military career, Sir John was a renowned
      engineer and public administrator. He also
      features on the Australian $100 note.

      He was a man who used education to turn his
      natural talent into ability, allowing him to realise
      his daring ambitions. Not only do we carry
      Sir John’s name, we also take inspiration from
      his philosophy of life.

      Although Monash University is named after
      an individual, the University is a public
      government-funded and accredited institution.

      Our motto, Ancora Imparo
      (“I am still learning”), captures the
      essence of his approach to life.

     Fees
     Most postgraduate coursework programs are offered as full-fee places. Students
     in these courses pay the full tuition cost of the course and must make the payment
     upfront each semester. Details of course fees are included with course descriptions
     in this guide. A different fee is charged to Domestic and International students.
     Fees quoted are for courses commencing in 2014, are subject to change and are
     indicative only. Fees for courses commencing in 2015 will be different. For more
     information on fees visit monash.edu/fees.

     Cost of living

     arrive in Australia. Your tuition and study fees do not include
     personal costs such as accommodation, food and other
     things you will need. These costs can add up to
     approximately A$22,900+ per year.

                                                     Elena is an Italian designer who studied in England before moving to Australia
                                                     to further her professional development.
                                                     “I wanted to refine the design skills and expand my professional network in Australia.
                                                     I chose Monash based on its reputation. I was also impressed by the work of
                                                     previous students.”

                                             Mel chose to pursue her postgraduate studies alongside her full-time career,
                                             to have an advantage over other graduates in a competitive job market.
                                             “Tourism isn’t all about holidays! The program has an interdisciplinary focus and

                                             hours and block subjects are a fantastic option for full-time workers. I recently took
                                             one week of annual leave to complete subject course work in Fiji. This allowed for
                                             full immersion into the program and fieldwork study. Staff in the Graduate Tourism
                                             program understand the commitments involved in working and studying full time
                                             and they are only a phone call or email away.”
