     These courses allow you to extend expertise gained through your
     undergraduate degree, or add breadth to your knowledge and skills
     within a new or complementary field. If you complete a four-year honours
     bachelor’s degree, you can usually complete an expert master’s degree
     in the same discipline in just one year, meaning you graduate with both a
     bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years. See pages 20-21 for a full

I fell in love with Australia and chose Monash for its reputation
and recommendation by my high school mentor. Throughout
my studies I had the opportunity to work on a range of diverse
projects that align to my interests and dealt with real-life
issues. The connections I made and the experience was
invaluable. It allowed me to graduate with a job at a landscape
