Creating your study plan

Part of the process of applying to Monash is to create a study plan. Your study plan is the list of units you plan to study while on exchange, and forms part of your application. You would need to list the units you want to study on page 4 of your application.

When creating your study plan, you should consider the following:

  1. Review the study options available to you.
  2. Select four units that you would like to study, plus an additional four units as a backup. It is common for exchange students to have timetable clashes especially if you are taking units across different year – levels or units offered by different schools.
  3. Ensure the units selected will be offered at the Malaysia campus and in the particular semester that you will be at Monash Malaysia.
  4. As an undergraduate student, you can only select 1st, 2nd or 3rd year level units.
  5. In most cases 4th year and honours units are not available to exchange and study abroad students.

The application process differs depending on whether you are a study abroad or exchange student. As a reference, you will be classified as an exchange student if your home university has an exchange agreement with Monash, otherwise you will be applying as a study abroad student.

Exchange student application process

You will need to apply through your home university as they have an exchange agreement with Monash University. Your home university exchange office will help you complete the Monash Abroad application form for incoming students (pdf, 542.7 kb).
