With four campuses in Australia and a presence in Malaysia, China, India, Indonesia and Italy, it is one of the most internationalised Australian universities.

As a leading international medical research university with the largest medical faculty in Australia and integration with leading Australian teaching hospitals, we consistently rank in the top 50 universities worldwide for clinical, pre-clinical and health sciences.

At Monash Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, our translational model enables the work we do every day as we break through new frontiers of scientific understanding to improve global health and propel future research and educational excellence.


Impacting future leaders

Empowered by a generous philanthropic grant from Martin and Loreto Hosking through the Three Springs Foundation, Monash has also established the Monash Centre for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies – the first of its kind in the world.

Led by Centre Director and Research lead, Professor Jakob Hohwy and Education lead, Professor Craig Hassed, the Centre serves as a regional and global leader in consciousness research and contemplative studies, bringing together experts in philosophy, neuroscience, medicine, education and interfaith dialogue. Guided by research, education and community engagement, the Centre focuses on common humanity while positively impacting student wellbeing through the development of core curriculum subjects.
