Bachelor of Medical Bioscience/ Bachelor of Food Science and Technology
Students are unable to participate in the final year due to the lack of available units at Monash Australia. If you wish to apply for the Global Intercampus Program, please note the following:
- February intake students- please apply in Year 1 Semester 2 to study in Monash Australia during Year 2 Semester 1 of your degree
- July/ October intake students- please apply in Year 2 Semester 1 to exchange in the Year 2 Semesters 2 of your degree

Important note for Exchange Program (partner universities)
Research your option and draft course plan/ study plan
- It is important to be familiarized with your course structure and Monash units you are supposed to enrol during the exchange semester (refer to Monash handbook for the unit information). 
- Search the unit syllabus from the partner university website when preparing the study plan. If you are unable to find the detailed unit syllabus, it is advisable to consider another partner university. Your focus will be on searching for possible equivalent units instead of the courses offered at the partner university.
A detailed unit syllabus should include unit description, learning objectives, learning outcomes, assessment required, credit point, number of contact hours per week/ semester, weekly topics, and required reading/ textbook(s).
- After you have submitted your application on Monash Abroad Portal, your application will go through 2 rounds of assessments- Monash Abroad and School assessments. When it comes to the school assessment, the school will assess the proposed units in your study plan if the units are at least 80% similar to the Monash units to be considered equivalent.
*Please refer Monash Abroad website for the detailed application process.
Limits on credit given for undergraduate courses
Students must complete at Monash University at least 48 points, comprising not less than 36 points of science units including a minimum of 24 points of level-three units, of which at least 18 points must be in the science area of specialisation (major sequence).
This means if you wish to apply to exchange in your Year 3, you need to plan well and ensure you have sufficient level-three units to complete at Monash University (4 core level-three units or 3 core level-three units with 1 science elective level-three unit).

Welcome to School of Science!

Here are some guidelines for choosing suitable units for your course:

  • The first digit of the unit code indicates the year level. For example, BTH1802 is a level 1 unit, CHM2911 is a level 2 unit, and BIO3810 is a level 3 unit.
  • For units of higher level (level 2 or 3), it is important that you have the basic science background required listed in the pre-requisite or co-requisite information.
  • The list of units offered by the School of Science can be found here. When you click on the unit code, you will be led to the Monash handbook that gives you an overview of the unit content (credit point, learning outcomes, enrolment rule, teaching staff contacts, teaching approach, assessment, workload requirements, learning resources, etc.).
  • Please refer to the Offerings section of the Monash handbook to ensure you choose on-campus unit and the correct semester:
