Availability

Applicants and their sibling(s) must be enrolled in a full-fee paying (full load – 4 units) course in the same semester. The discount applies to all undergraduate courses offered by Monash Malaysia except for Honours degree courses.

A sibling enrolled in the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) course will be eligible to a maximum discount of RM5,000 per annum (RM2,500 per semester).
  • If one of the siblings is a recipient of the Monash High Achiever Award (MHAA) for new students/continuing students in the same semester, his/her sibling(s) are eligible to a 10% discount off semester tuition fees, provided all other criteria of the sibling discount scheme are met.
  • There is no limit to the number of siblings eligible for the Scheme.
  • Students who obtain other external scholarships or financial assistance (except PTPTN Loan) at any point of their studies will not be eligible for the scheme.
  • If a student discontinues or intermits from the course, the scheme will no longer be applicable.

Conditions

Students who are bonded to or in receipt of any financial assistance from Monash University Malaysia (including staff discounts by Sunway Group, travel grant, Entrance Scholarships, and Monash High Achiever Award) or from other educational institutions or organisations, are not eligible to apply.

Applicants must inform the University of changes in any siblings’ enrolment details.  In the absence of two siblings being enrolled in a concurrent semester, or if one sibling receives a scholarship, or if a sibling withdraws or intermits from a course, the discount may be reversed. This means the recipient may be required to reimburse the University.
