Pathway Programs

Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is a one-year program designed to allow students to study a combination of subjects across all disciplines. This choice prepares them for entry into any faculty at university. Our curriculum has been developed with Monash University academics and with leading research into best practice and teaching and learning.

The program is offered in three formats to match your academic grades and study preferences: Standard (twelve months), Intensive (nine months) and Extended (fifteen months).

Upon successfully meeting University entrance requirements, the Foundation Year program guarantees entry into first year of a Monash University’s undergraduate degree.

Monash College Diplomas provide specialised preparation for direct entry to first or second year of specific Monash University degrees.

Our diplomas are ideal if you:

  • narrowly missed out on direct entry into your chosen Monash degree
  • left school a few years ago and now want a qualification that provides entry into university
  • want a personal and attentive approach for university preparation.

Monash College offers four diplomas:

  • Diploma of Arts
  • Diploma of Business
  • Diploma of Engineering Studies

Each diploma is offered in two parts. Your highest qualification will decide your entry point:
• Part 1 – Australian Year 11 or its equivalent, or
• Part 2 – Australian Year 12 or its equivalent (with the appropriate pre-requisite subjects).
