    Not good!

    Monash has been a disappointing university experience. There is extremely limited student support and most of the time no one knows what’s going on especially in the arts and fine arts units which is extremely frustrating.

    Don't study at Monash University

    Having worked and studied there, I have some insight into why the delivery of education has dropped so much at Monash University over the years. The successful delivery of education relies on the quality of IT staff and projects they deliver within the eSolutions department. That is what the various business units and academics rely on to deliver educational value. Unfortunately, with totally incompetent management from the CIO, and the eSolutions Director, down to the Delivery Manager within Shared and Campus Services (watch out for “Vignesh”), is it any wonder people are turning away from Monash University as a study destination. The end user (academics and students) suffer as a result, and so will you if you choose to study there.

    Terrible Online Grad Dip Psych course

    I completed a majority of the Grad Dip Psych at Monash and would NOT recommend this course or Monash Online.
    It was hugely expensive and the experience I had was terrible. The majority of lecturers are academic with no real life experience of psychology and the course coordinator when I was studying there was a joke. I was ridiculed in live class, compelled to undertake psych tests as part of ‘projects’ during the course without there being appropriate and approved ethics forms, participant information, and there was no help or support from the university. They changed the course for enrolled students with 2 weeks notice causing a massive exodus of students. When students questioned the uni there was absolutely no help, empathy or care. Basically the attitude is give us your money and shut up.
    It was a TERRIBLE experience and it was clear this uni with its online psychology courses is only interested in taking your money. I transferred to CSU and finished my Grad Dip there and loved it and found it to be much much better.
    I am about to start my Hons year, but many of the friends I made during this course fell by the wayside and gave up their psych studies and I think much of that was due to the way Monash operates.
    I would strongly recommend anyone looking to do psychology online look at some of the many other options out there as Monash is in my opinion using this course to make a lot of money, spend the majority of their resources signing up new students, and then don’t give a toss after you are signed up.

      Go elsewhere

      I completed the majority of my Grad Dip Psych online. I would recommend you go elsewhere. My experience was TERRIBLE. It’s expensive and the attitude towards students is reprehensible.
      The course coordinator was a joke. I completed my course at CSU and had a fantastic experience there. I would strongly recommend you look around as this course is not what their marketing machine purports it to be.

    Arts in history and international studies

    Hi, I am a student looking to study a bachelor of Arts at monash and was wondering what is the course really like? I want to major in history and international studies and would love any advice. I also have a minor physical disability affecting my ability to walk for long periods of time so any comments on whether the university is accommodating or not would be appreciated (:

    Master of Banking and Finance help

    Hi there,

    I’m planning to study a Master of Banking and Finance at Monash. Can any past/current student tell me how’s the quality of the course? Is it as practical as let’s say RMIT’s courses? Are they teaching students to be work ready and providing industry placements etc?

    Online Study DON'T BOTHER

    Online study was dreadful and expectations were unreasonable. As a full time worker and part time study there was little support and flexibility. Very very easy to fall behind and basically drown. Online NO.

      Online study @ Monash ?

      I didn’t realise Monash offered online study? They did previously through OUA but they stopped offering courses online a couple years ago. Which course were you completing, if you don’t mind me asking?

    Might transfer just want some feedback from current students

    Hey I’m an international student currently studying in Macquarie University and I am considering transferring to Monash. I’ll be in the faculty of business if I do transfer. Just wanna know how are Monash lecturers and tutors like? Are they good are they bad? Does Monash have more options to help students with their studies?

      Great University

      I graduated from Monash about 7-8 years ago and I loved the on-campus experience. I studied bachelor of Commerce at Clayton, and found a job at big 4 accounting firm before I graduated from my course. When i started work I felt well equipped.
      Admin people aren’t friendly.

    A great university with dedicated teachers. I was in the Faculty of Education and found that most teachers genuinely wanted you to do well and were willing to answer any concerns you had.
