Established in 1998, Monash University Malaysia is one of Malaysia’s most respected universities. We are Monash University’s global footprint in the Asian region, carrying with us the distinction of being the Malaysian constituent of a premier research-intensive Australian university ranked among the top 100* universities in the world, and a member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight (Go8)**.
From humble beginnings, Monash Malaysia has grown in stature and is now recognized as a leader in the international higher education sector in Malaysia. As an independent, self-accrediting institution of higher education, we attract students not just from Malaysia, but from all over the world. Approximately 6,000 students representing almost 70 nationalities are currently enrolled at Monash Malaysia and enjoy a quality academic experience. We offer a range of specialist Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses in the areas of Arts & Social Sciences, Business, Engineering and Information Technology, Medicine & Health Sciences, Pharmacy, and Science, which are directly linked to the human resource needs of Malaysia and the region. All our courses are accredited in Malaysia and Australia, ensuring an education that is locally relevant and internationally recognized.
With a Monash degree, our graduates, who are globally-engaged and industry-driven are able to pursue rewarding careers in both the public and private sectors across the region. We are located 30 minutes south of Kuala Lumpur, one of Asia’s most commercial, dynamic, exciting and culturally diverse capital cities. Our students have access to inexpensive, clean and secure accommodation, a range of delectable cuisine, and enjoy a cosmopolitan lifestyle in a multi-cultural environment.
Our faculty is a mix of locally and internationally recruited academics with extensive teaching, business and industry experience. They bring years of knowledge gained from research in their respective fields into the classroom, providing students with a stimulating academic environment. Classes are small in number, allowing the lecturers to cater to the students’ individual needs. Since our inception, Monash Malaysia has built a reputation for quality, credibility, and integrity, and is held in high esteem by our students, alumni, industry, and government.
We are committed to maximising the potential of everyone in the global community we serve, seeking to develop well-rounded individuals who embrace challenge and change.
