Pathways to monash 2019 - Monash University

MAKE MONASH YOUR DESTINATION There’s more than one way to become a Monash student. If your goal is to get a degree and use it to improve yourself, your community or the lives of others, Monash is the place for you.

Pathways to monash 2019 - Monash University
A pathway can help you enter a Monash degree if you:
  • didn’t finish Year 12
  • didn’t achieve the ATAR you needed for your dream course
  • are returning to study after working or raising a family
  • want to change careers
  • are transferring from TAFE or another university
  • want to try university study before committing to a full degree. Why choose a pathway to Monash? Greater choice We offer one of the widest ranges of degrees and pathways in Australia. As the largest university in the country, our scale means you’ll have access to a wider variety of opportunities.

Fast track to success Most of our pathway programs allow you to progress straight into the second year of your Monash degree on successful completion, or give you credit for the units you’ve studied (meaning you can take fewer subjects for one or two semesters of your degree). This means you could complete your course in the same amount of time as you would have if you’d entered your degree directly. You might also receive credit for previous university or TAFE/VET units you’ve completed. A positive student experience At Monash you’re at the centre of everything we do. New ways of teaching and learning are constantly developed, tested and integrated into your course to ensure you get the best university experience and education.

And with small class sizes and helpful tutors, you’ll be supported along the way. Study skills and support services The decision to study at university is exciting, but it’s also a big adjustment. We care about your wellbeing and offer transition programs, peer networking, mentoring and study skills workshops to help you settle in and adjust to uni life.

For international student pathways, please visit monashcollege.edu.au/courses I already know which degree I want a pathway into If you’ve already chosen your dream Monash course, check the tables at the back of this guide to find out which pathways can help you get there.

I’m still deciding what I want to study There’s a wide range of pathway options available, so you’ll need to consider your reasons for completing a pathway and where you hope to end up.

Cassandra Kovac dreamed of being a teacher since she was 10 years old, but when she received her Year 12 results she felt as though her world had deflated and didn’t know what her next step would be. Seven years on and now a fulltime primary teacher, Cassandra says it was Monash’s pathway program that helped her get there. “I looked into the different pathway programs that Monash offered and found the Diploma of Tertiary Studies. It was the perfect fit for me. That first year was really fantastic. The DoTs program helped me feel more supported and understand the structure of the University, and just have a really great start.

I knew I was on the right track and when I finished, I transferred straight into my second year of a Bachelor of Education with the same teachers and friends. I was really confident and was on the same page as everyone else. The experience made me a better student, and definitely a better teacher.” CASSANDRA KOVAC Bachelor of Education (Honours) (2015) 3 3

SINGLE UNIVERSITY UNITS Can you show us you’re ready to study at university but haven’t yet completed any formal qualifications? Have you finished secondary school and received your required ATAR, but don’t have the prerequisites for the course you want to do? If this sounds like you, single university unit study may be for you. If you’ve completed secondary schooling but didn’t meet the required ATAR, you may also choose to undertake single university units to increase your chances of being admitted into a course.

However, this isn’t a guaranteed pathway, as selection decisions will be based on your whole academic history, including your secondary schooling and higher education results.

  • By studying single units at Monash, you can meet university entry requirements for your desired degree course while getting a taste of university study to see if it’s for you. When you successfully complete a unit, you’ll receive a statement of results that can then be used for applications for further study within a five-year period. Depending on the degree you choose, you could also gain credits for the units you’ve completed. Single units are available on a feepaying basis only. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
  • You must have completed your final four years of secondary schooling in English.
  • Additional requirements vary depending on the subject you’re taking. You may be required to undertake an internal assessment or sit a test.
  • If you didn’t complete or achieve the required score in Year 12 English, one of the single university units undertaken must be an Englishrich unit.
