It’s a good idea to plan and prepare a budget before you go to uni, especially if you plan on living out of home. You can use these tables to help prepare a budget. However, these figures are only estimates; costs will vary depending on your location and lifestyle. Rent, for example, is more expensive in some areas of Melbourne than others. You may need to add other items to your budget, such as ongoing mobile phone and internet fees. All costs are subject to inflation. For more information about the cost of living, visit monash.edu/cost-of-living It doesn’t matter where you’re from, if you’ve just finished Year 12 or returning to study.
As long as you have the drive to pursue, question and achieve, we’ll help you get there. At Monash, our courses are designed for ultimate flexibility. If you have a profession in mind – such as becoming a doctor or engineer – you can specialise from day one. If you need more time to figure things out, you can explore various subjects first. You can choose from two types of undergraduate courses – comprehensive or specialist. Each offers distinct benefits, but both offer a world-class education. Alternatively, you can choose to study two courses at the same time with a choice of more than 140 double-degree combinations.

To view costs for all accommodation and campuses, visit: monash.edu/accommodation/accommodation/pricing Comprehensive courses 3 years or 4 years (honours degree) In a comprehensive course, you can choose your major right away or wait until your second year to decide. You can then structure the rest of your course based on your interests – do two majors, an extended major or choose units from different fields.* Monash offers comprehensive courses in arts, business, commerce, information technology and science.
When you graduate, your testamur will include the major you’ve completed, with up to two being listed. For example, Bachelor of Arts with majors in journalism and politics. * You must satisfy the entry requirements for each elective unit. Specialist courses 3 years or 4 years (honours degree) If you have a specific career goal, such as to become an engineer, accountant, teacher or an architect, you can specialise from day one. Many of our specialist courses fulfil the academic requirements you’ll need to register with professional accreditation bodies. When you graduate, your degree will reflect your specialisation – for example, Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) or Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary Education.

If you choose to complete one more year of study, you’ll graduate with an expert master’s degree in the same field. 10 11 UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 2019 UNDERGRADUATE COURSES 2019
DOUBLE YOUR OPTIONS WITH A DOUBLE DEGREE A Monash double degree course allows you to study towards two degrees at the same time.
What is a double degree course? Monash offers two types of double degrees: a double undergraduate degree and an undergraduate/graduate double degree. A Monash double undergraduate degree course allows you to study towards two degrees at the same time. This means you can keep your options open, develop expertise in different but complementary areas, or simply pursue two areas of interest in greater depth. You’ll be awarded with two testamurs, one for each degree completed. More than 140 double degree combinations are available.
Double undergraduate degree How long does it take? A double undergraduate degree course takes two years less to complete than studying towards the two degrees separately. This is because the required units in one course count as electives in the other. For example, if you decide to take a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and a Bachelor of Commerce, it will take you five years instead of seven. Therefore, you would take all the common core units for engineering as well as your 18 units of specialisation. You’ll also take all the prescribed core units in commerce as well as eight units that make up your commerce major.
So not only will you save two years of time, you’ll also save two years of course fees.

To be eligible for admission to a double degree course you will need to meet the academic entry requirements for both single degree courses.
