The Monash University Handbook provides information on the courses and units offered to students at Monash during the

current academic year. It is primarily a tool to assist students who have commenced, or are about to commence, their studies to plan each stage of enrolment in their chosen course, so that they can undertake the required program of study. In particular, the Handbook includes the overall requirements that students who commence a course in the current academic year must normally satisfy before they are eligible to be awarded that qualification. Students who commenced their studies in their enrolled course prior to the current academic year should consult the archived Handbook for the year in which they commenced their studies. All handbooks are available online at, including notifications of updates via the handbook change register.
