Notes for Inter-campus Exchange Program Students (Outbound):

Entry requirements

  • To be eligible to participate in an intercampus exchange program you must have:
  • completed at least 48 credit points of your course at Monash
  • achieved a minimum Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 60%
  • an active enrolment in a Monash undergraduate or postgraduate coursework degree at any Monash campus
  • your overseas study plan approved by your school (s) so that you receive credit towards your degree
  • selected units that will ensure you are doing a full time load of on-campus units (18 or 24 credit points)
  • been assessed by Monash Abroad as a suitable representative of your home campus

Other factors to consider

  • Some schools may not permit you to undertake overseas study in the final semester of your course; check with your course management office before completing your application.
  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
  • Depending on your country of origin, if you’re applying for an intercampus exchange to Australia, you may be required to provide IELTS results. You should check with the Australian Immigration Department and book in for an IELTS test as early as possible, as they do not run on a regular basis.

Application Process:

•Once you’re ready, download and complete the Monash Abroad application form for Intercampus Exchange. The form includes step-by-step instructions to completing your application, and details of everything you need to include with your application, such as your study plan.

Creating your study plan

  • Your study plan is the list of subjects you plan to study while on intercampus exchange, and is part of your application. Even though the study plan sits within your application form, you actually need to have it approved and signed off by your course management office before you can submit the application form and supporting documentation to Monash Abroad Malaysia. The submission deadline to your school is usually a month before the Monash Abroad application deadline.
  • When creating your study plan you should consider the following:
  • Which Monash campus you plan to go to – they each offer different units, at different levels
  • Make sure the units are offered at the campus you want to go to and are available in the semester you plan to go
  • Study elective units whilst abroad – that way it will allow you room for flexibility and makes it easier to get approval from your school
  • You must do a full time load (18-24 credit points) of on-campus units only
  • Be aware of any unit restrictions or limitations and make sure you meet these before selecting the unit
  • Choose twice as many units than you’ll actually need to study – sometimes classes are cancelled if enrolment quotas aren’t met, so being prepared for this is a must

Submitting your application 

  • Once your study plan is approved by your course management office and you’ve completed the rest of your application, submit it to Monash Abroad Malaysia by the application deadline.
