Monash is a university of
transformation. The desire
to make a difference informs
everything we do.
We have had, and continue
to have, a positive inuence
on peoples lives well beyond
Australian shores.
Monash University young,
dynamic and ambitious
Monash University was established
in Melbourne, Australia in 1958. We
are named after Sir John Monash,
a famous Australian who contributed
to almost every level of Australian life.
Sir John had a simple philosophy:
...equip yourself for life, not merely
for your own benet, but for the
benet of the whole community.
This philosophy guides
everything we do:
_ our approach to education
_ our research ambitions
_ our people
_ our communities and
_ our global initiatives.
In little more than 50 years Monash
University has earned an enviable
national and international reputation
for research and teaching excellence.
Taking inspiration fromSir John Monash,
we have created a world-class education
and research community, a community
of progress, optimism and ambition.
A community where brilliant students,
researchers, ideas and solutions to
some of the worlds great challenges
are nurtured and thrive.
Monash University is a member
of Australias Group of Eight, an
alliance of elite Australian universities
recognised for their excellence in
teaching and research. Its eight
members produce more than 70 per
cent of all basic research conducted
at all of Australias public universities.
Its a testament to our research
focus and ambition that we are
the youngest member of this
prestigious group, which includes
some of Australias longest-
established universities.
The M8 Alliance of Academic Health
Centers and Medical Universities
is an international collaboration of

brilliant
foundations
With campuses and centres across
four continents, Monash is able to
offer exceptional global opportunities
to staff and students alike.
Sir John Monash
The University takes its name
from Sir John Monash, a famous
Australian who contributed to
almost every level of Australian life.
Not only do we carry Sir Johns
name, we also take inspiration
from his philosophy on life.
He was a man who used education
to turn his natural talent into ability,
allowing him to realise his daring
ambitions. Our motto, Ancora Imparo
(I am still learning), captures the
essence of his approach to life.
It is symptomatic of our
ambition and drive that, for
a relatively young institution,
Monash University ranks
above world standards
in almost all disciplines.
Vice-Chancellor and President, Ed Byrne
and Roman site, uncovering artifacts
over 2000 years old. Our Faculty of
Laws Prato Programexposes students
to international experts in a meeting
place renowned for its cultural diversity
and inspiring environment.
Our Faculty of Information Technology
offers an industry-based learning
programthat allows students to take
part in 22-week placements with some
of Australias largest companies,
including Origin Energy, KPMG and
GE Capital. Each placement is credited
towards the students degree and gives
them a vital opportunity to convert
theory into practice.
Through our close relationship with
OxfamAustralia, we provide potentially
life-changing volunteer opportunities
for students in South Africa. One
is the Monash Oxfamin South Africa
Student Placement Program, which
gives students a deeper awareness
of the problems affecting people living
with HIV and AIDS. It is a full four
weeks of intensive, practical learning
beginning with an extensive induction
programand followed by work
placements with community-based
organisations across the region.
Employability
At Monash, we believe that every
student is an international student.
We seek to develop globally-engaged
graduates, professionals who are well
prepared for success in an evermore
competitive, and diverse, labour market
the sort of employees organisations
go out of their way to recruit.
And we deliver a New York Times
survey of global CEOs on graduate
recruitment (October 2011) rated
Monash the best university in
Australia, and one of the worlds top
50.
Unique campuses with unique roles
We are a successful university not
because we demand uniformity, but
because we embrace difference. Our
campuses epitomise this philosophy.
While academic excellence is our main
objective, Monash has always strived
to embrace social justice we aim
to increase access and participation
for students fromall backgrounds.
In order to do this, we recognise
that different people are looking for
different opportunities and pathways.
Our campuses play a key role in
allowing us to be exible in developing
creative ways for more people
to engage in tertiary education.
Engaged with industry
We build and nurture long-term
relationships with businesses,
government, NGOs, and the
community, forging collaborative
teams to tackle complex challenges.
Being a key part of the South East
Melbourne Innovation Precinct
(SEMIP), considered the Asia-
Pacics innovation capital, we can
help our partners in ways that few
other institutions can.
The precinct encompasses the
Australian Synchrotron, CSIROs
largest research and development
site, the head ofces of Southern
Health, the Melbourne Centre
for Nanofabrication, and the
headquarters of some of the
worlds largest companies. It also
accommodates 40 per cent of
Victorias manufacturing activities.
Sometimes brilliant just
needs a chance
We seek to improve the human
condition through our research
and education. For that reason,
its important we understand the
needs of the communities we seek
to serve. We have a range of outreach
programs to ensure that we remain
connected and relevant to these
communities and to society at large.
Our staff and students regularly
visit schools throughout Victoria,
presenting, tutoring and facilitating
workshops. Our Schools Access
Monash (SAM) program, for
instance, focuses on schools with
a signicant number of students
from disadvantaged backgrounds,
and aims to increase students
understanding of higher education.
On a global level, Monash has
strong associations with some
of the worlds largest charity
organisations, including World Vision
and Oxfam. Our partnership with
OxfamAustralia brings together the
expertise of our researchers and
on-the-ground experience of Oxfam
workers in developing countries.
An unprecedented philanthropic
donation of $2.9 million has supported
the roll out of targeted programs
investigating the gendered impacts
of and adaptation to climate change
in disadvantaged communities in
Bangladesh, South Africa, Cambodia,
Indonesia and Timor-Leste. Our
partnership with World Vision Australia
empowers the University community
to combat extreme poverty through
active participation in global
campaigns around child health and
fair trade.

Monash is a university that aims
high we seek to make a profound
difference in the world. In order to
transform our ambition into action
and positive change, we concentrate
on several specic areas:
Research with impact
We use our researchers brilliant
ideas to help change communities
for the better. Through our strong
investment in research we grow our
knowledge and develop solutions
to contemporary challenges. What
we learn in research goes back into
our teaching, so our students gain
the skills theyll need to confront
the problems of tomorrow.
Our global footprint
We are in a unique position to consider
education and research from a global
perspective. We are active on four
continents with campuses in Australia,
Malaysia and South Africa; an education
and research centre in Prato, Italy;
a joint research academy with the
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
in Mumbai, India; the Southeast
University-Monash University Joint
Graduate School (Suzhou) in China;
as well as a recently-cemented
alliance the rst of its kind in the
world with the University of Warwick
in the UK, a top-ve UK university.
Beyond our bricks-and-mortar
presence we have signicant
partnerships with 16 leading
universities in North America,
Europe, Africa and Asia.
An ambitious education
for ambitious students
We prefer to tell our students what
they can do, rather than what they
cant. This is why we give our students
the opportunity to study outside
traditional academic settings, to
volunteer, to travel the globe and
to engage in research sooner.
Knowing we attract some of Australias
most brilliant and ambitious people,
weve created numerous challenging
programs, exposing students and
researchers to different cultures,
economies and working practices.

Making a big impact
We pursue a research agenda based
on excellence, relevance and impact.
Since our foundation, we have
embraced an unrelenting commitment
to excellence we back this by offering
our community (from our newest
researchers to our longest-established
cross-disciplinary teams) access
to world-class facilities, resources and
support. As a result, our researchers
have made discoveries that have
had a signicant impact in Australia
and around the globe, achieving
things that the world once didnt
think were possible.
In 1964, work by Monash researchers
led to the worlds rst laws requiring
that seatbelts be installed in all new
cars. This started in Victoria and South
Australia and soon spread overseas.
We pioneered IVF research, achieving
the worlds rst IVF pregnancy in the
early 1970s.
Our scientists were the rst in the world
to demonstrate that human embryonic
stemcells could generate specic types
of body cells in the laboratory.
One of our most outstanding
commercialised inventions is the
anti-inuenza drug Zanamivir (sold
as Relenza). This rst-in-class antiviral
drug developed for the treatment and
prevention of inuenza paved the way
for todays generation of u vaccines.
With an eye on the future, we make
signicant strategic investments in
world-class research infrastructure.
We are increasing our capacity to

Once we understand the technical,
social and business goals that our
partners seek to reach, we handpick
the people best placed to work on
the project, no matter where they
come from.
We bring together a solution-focused
multidisciplinary team designed to
address the specic challenges and
needs of our partners. We also have
access to specialist researchers
in other countries thanks to our
global network.
We know how to encourage highly
focused individuals to work
collaboratively for the common goal
of the project. We work with a long-
term focus, but are able to progress
rapidly from discovery to utility.
We expect to make exciting discoveries.
So we have robust systems in place
to ensure new intellectual property
is well-protected and the integrity

We research to make a difference.
Sometimes that involves pure
research. At other times, it involves
working with a business partner to
nd a brilliant solution to a genuine
commercial need.
Our systems are geared around
making research work for business.
Our Industry Engagement and
Commercialisation Group is highly
regarded for its ability to build and
nurture long-term relationships with
industry and other organisations.
For example, we have been working
with Australias peak road accident
body, the Trafc Accident Commission
(TAC) since 1987 just a year after
it was founded.
We are recognised as having one of the
most mature approaches to strategic
alliances in Australia particularly
with respect to joint governance and
professional project management.

Monash is one of only seven
Australian universities in the worlds
top 150 according to the Shanghai
Jiao Tong Academic Rankings of
World Universities, 2012. In 2011
the QS World University Rankings
placed Monash in the top 60.
In just over 50 years we have
grown to become the largest
university in Australia, renowned
for our outstanding education,
transformative research, global
reach and extensive alumni network.
Professor Rod McClure
Our worldwide leadership in the
prevention of accident and injury is
attributable in large part to the work
of Professor Rod McClure and his
teamat the Monash Injury Research
Institute (MIRI), a group that combines
the Universitys expertise in accident
and trauma research.
This team collaborates with road
safety institutes globally and
MIRI now has centres in Europe,
Malaysia and South Africa.
A growing global network
A global perspective underpins
everything we do in the classroom,
in the laboratory and in our work with
industry partners.
Our international network lets us draw
on perspectives, relationships and
resources that most other universities
cannot. Our campuses in Malaysia
and South Africa, and our research
and teaching centre in Italy, give us
unique insights into the challenges
and opportunities of operating across
national boundaries.
We also have a range of collaborations,

A deeper learning experience
Monash understands that deep student
learning is about much more than
content. We knowthe key to successful
learning and teaching is the quality
of the interaction between the student,
their peers and their teachers.
Our approach to education creates and
encourages a personalised learning
experience we let our students choose
their own path. They choose the types
of skills they want to develop, when and
in what areas they want to specialise,
and what sort of experiences they
want to have.
It also encourages active collaboration.
Students engage with their teachers
and with one another, constructing,
rather than consuming, knowledge.
This provides a more satisfying
experience for students, and a more
rewarding outcome for employers,
who recruit graduates with a profound
understanding of a eld or discipline.
