*Important note for October 2021 intake students.

All GS U1 Units will only be offered in Semester 1 and Semester 2 of the academic teaching calendar of the year.

As a student at our Malaysian campus, it is a Ministry of Education requirement for you to successfully enrol in and complete some of the General Studies units. Before you graduate, please make sure that you have completed the following General Studies units:

International Students

  • MPU 3173 Malaysian Studies 3
  • MPU3143 Communicative Malay 2

Domestic Students

  • MPU 3113 Ethnic Relations
  • MPU 3123 Islamic and Asian Civilizations
  • MPU 3212 National Language A

Here at Monash University Malaysia, we imagine this to mean exciting engagement opportunities for you to complete some of these units by attending events, going on field-trips, and participating in other immersive experiences both on and off campus. In short, we want you to get out there, explore, have fun, make happy memories, and complete your General Studies requirements at the same time. Sounds exciting? We certainly hope so!

Although you can complete these units at any stage of your enrollment, we advise you to get them done within your first three semesters here.
