Location Details

Monash has five campuses in Australia, and one in Malaysia, at which ASU students can study on exchange. The Clayton campus, located in a suburb of Melbourne, is the largest with a student population of over 33,000 and the most popular with exchange students. Please note that it is possible to take classes at both the Clayton and the Caulfield campuses during the same term as there is a regular university shuttle bus (15-25 minutes each way) between the two. For all other campuses, it is recommended that students take all their classes at one location.

Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria, is Australia's second-largest city (population of over 4 million). It is renowned for its restaurants, sports, trams, and a thriving nightlife. The city ranks consistently as one of the world's most liveable on the basis of its culture, climate, cost of living, public transport, and social conditions such as health care and low crime rate. Beautiful parks and gardens are a city feature. On weekends and school breaks, students can learn to surf, visit wineries, see koalas and kangaroos, go hiking or "bushwalking," or shop. In winter, snowboarding and skiing is also available.

The Monash Sunway campus is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This country is a cultural melting pot of more than 26 million people and a unique blend of religions, cultures, and languages. Kuala Lumpur boasts ultra-modern skyscrapers, shopping malls, a comprehensive transportation system, and everything a metropolitan city has to offer. Students may also choose to use their study abroad as an opportunity to explore the region. Malaysia is centrally located in Southeast Asia and a good base to explore Asia.
