Coursework and research

Postgraduate coursework degrees at Monash are offered in all disciplines, and at every level, including master’s, graduate diplomas and graduate certificates. You can study full-time or part-time, off-campus, on campus or online. And, if you need to adjust your goals, you can. For example, you might start a master’s course but choose to exit early with a graduate diploma. Or start a graduate diploma and decide to continue onto a master’s program.

Monash offers research-based postgraduate degrees in all disciplines. And, while the challenge takes commitment, drive, motivation and talent, the benefits are enormous.

Combined degrees offer you the flexibility to complete part of your course by following a unit-based program, and part of it by completing a research thesis. It will allow you to grow through experiencing two very different methods of higher education.

It will enable you to pursue a passion, working in a supportive environment with like-minded people. And it can open up incredible career opportunities.

Additionally, project management paves the way to future leadership roles. We deliver courses that are innovative and relevant to the changing needs of both students and employers. Project management units can also be selected as electives while completing either the Master of Applied Information Technology, Master of Information Technology or any other postgraduate degree.

Ilya Alfimenkov Master of Business Information Systems (Professional) Already having completed an undergraduate degree in business management, Ilya chose to further his knowledge and employment potential by studying the Master of Business Information Systems (Professional). This degree gave him the opportunity to select IT areas of interest and complete specialisations to obtain a greater understanding of the highly complex IT environment. When asked to explain your course to someone in one sentence, he answered “We make IT work for business!”.

Research excellence

_ The faculty’s commitment to the pursuit of excellence and innovation in both research and in teaching and learning is clear. It consistently receives the highest amount of funding from the Australian Government in recognition of teaching and learning performance of any health-related faculty at any university.

Our researchers are continually recognised in competitive grant rounds of organisations such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the Cancer Council and the National Heart Foundation. We win a significant proportion of awards for research, reflecting our strengths in areas such as neuroscience, foetal development, malaria and communication impairment. Our people, programs, platforms and a new precinct for biomedical sciences research at Clayton, plus a prominent presence at The Alfred (Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct), Monash Medical Centre (Monash Health Research Precinct), a network of clinical schools at hospitals across Victoria, and at our own campuses at Peninsula, Gippsland, Caulfield and Malaysia means that we are able to translate a high volume of research into clinical outcomes. Monash is also the only Australian member of the prestigious M8 Alliance of academic health centres and medical universities.

_ There is a strong emphasis on translating knowledge and expertise from the academic to the clinical. Graduates can pursue their professional ambitions within our faculty from day one through a focused degree.

Professional registration/ recognition With a postgraduate research degree from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, you’ll join researchers who are already making a difference in the fight against illness, injury and disease. Our degrees are recognised by a range of leading medical organisations such as the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council, the Australian Institute of Radiography, the Australasian Sonographers Accreditation Registry and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

Admission and application

How to apply www.adm.monash.edu/ admissions There are different steps and procedures for coursework and research as well as for domestic and international students. In broad terms, research degrees are administered by the Monash Research Graduate School while coursework studies are administered by the faculties.

The type of information that should be included in an initial proposal includes: 1. What is the topic area? 2. What has motivated your interest in this particular area? 3. What field or fields of knowledge does it engage? 4. What are the key questions to be explored? 5. What are the aims of the project?

Research application procedures

6. What works or materials will be involved?

Applying for a research degree at Monash University has never been easier. Our research degree application website at www.monash.edu/study/research will provide you with everything you need to know about academic entry and English eligibility requirements, finding a supervisor, scholarships available for research degree candidates and the online application form which you will need submit. To begin the process of becoming a postgraduate researcher, prospective candidates need to think about possible research projects and topics that align with their interests, qualifications and experience. You will be required to submit a research proposal as part of your application and should start developing this as soon as you have some idea of your research topic.

8. What are the proposed outcomes of the research?

64

7. What methodologies are involved?

Future research candidates are encouraged to seek further information about the research expertise of academic staff through the websites and brochures of research centres, faculties, schools and departments. Applicants are eligible to be considered for admission to a research degree once they have been assessed to meet the University’s academic and English language entry requirements and any other requirements of the chosen course. Minimum academic requirements for entry into individual higher degrees by research are listed in the faculty section of this guide. Some research courses (for example professional doctorates) have additional entry requirements, while some research master’s courses have different entry pathways.

Please check the faculty website for specific entry requirements to these courses. Evidence of research ability, the availability of facilities in their proposed field of research and the availability of staff to undertake supervision will also be considered in the assessment of your application. Some faculties also offer preliminary research courses, such as postgraduate diplomas and master’s qualifying programs that provide a pathway to research for applicants without a research background. Applications for admission may be made at any time, however applications for research scholarships must be made by 31 May or 31 October each year. If you are applying for a research degree with a coursework component your commencement date in the degree may be determined by the availability of the coursework you will need to complete. Applications for all research degrees and scholarships are submitted via the online research degree and scholarship application form available at www.monash.edu/study/research. Enquiries regarding the research degree application process should be directed to the Research Degrees Admissions Unit at the Monash Research Graduate School using the online enquiry facility available at www.monash.edu/ research.

Coursework programs Applications for postgraduate coursework programs are made online via www.monash.edu/ postgraduate/apply-now.html, except for the graduate diplomas in education (applicants apply through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre at www.vtac.edu.au).

Postgraduate tuition fees www.monash.edu/fees Postgraduate courses attract fees for both domestic and international students. However, there are a range of schemes and services to help students with fees, including government loan programs. Local research students are generally granted a government-funded research place that can fund up to four years of research-based study.

Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) Postgraduate CSPs are limited in number and selection is highly competitive. Eligibility is assessed on academic merit and offered subject to availability. The Australian Government requires the majority of students in a Commonwealth-Supported Place to contribute to the cost of their education. This means that students pay a proportion of the cost of their course (see Student Contribution Amounts for commencing 2012 students below) and the


government funds the balance. For further information on CSP and student contribution amounts, visit www.goingtouni.gov.au.

Student contribution amounts For CSPs, units are grouped into four broad bands. The band in which the unit is located determines the student contribution amount for that unit. Usually, the units a student is required to enrol in to complete their course will each fall into the same band. The table outlines the annual student contribution amount for a full-time student who is enrolled in a standard full-time course where all units are in the same band. Students typically undertake eight units each year. Units are normally six credit points each. In a standard full-time year, students will study 48 credit points.

Research Training Scheme (RTS) Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens or Australian permanent residents undertaking a research degree at Monash University are granted a government-funded Research Training Scheme (RTS) place. Under this scheme, research students receive two full-time equivalent years of funding for a research master’s course and four years of full-time equivalent funding for doctoral studies. Under the RTS, it is a statutory requirement that all higher degree by research students provide details of previous enrolments in research programs to determine eligibility for RTS funding.

Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) The FEE-HELP scheme provides an interest-free, income-contingent loan facility for students. Australian citizens and holders of a permanent humanitarian visa are eligible for the FEE-HELP scheme. Eligible students wishing to fund part or all of their tuition fees through FEE-HELP must complete the loan request form by the relevant census date and provide a tax file number. A student can elect to pay portion of fees directly to the University and the remaining debt will be registered as a loan through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Students will commence repaying any HELP loan through the ATO once their income reaches the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment. A loan for up to the full tuition fee charged for the course can be accessed, but there is a lifetime limit. See the Monash University Fee-HELP website for details: www.monash.edu/ enrolments/loans/domestic-full-fee. html. For more information, contact the Student Services Centre on each campus or visit the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

Full-fee places Most postgraduate coursework programs are offered as full-fee places. Students in these courses pay the full tuition cost of the course and must make the payment upfront each semester. Details of course fees for Australian citizens and permanent residents are included with course descriptions in this guide. Fees quoted are for courses commencing in 2012, are subject to change and are indicative only. Fees for courses commencing in 2013 will be different. Applicants should check the fee with faculties or go to Course Finder: www.monash.edu/study/ coursefinder. Monash University reserves the right to adjust annual tuition fees. However the University undertakes that any adjustment factor for those continuing students will not exceed six per cent per annum. Any adjustment will be applied on 1 January each year for that year.

Credit points and fees

English language testing

The University uses a standard credit point range in relation to university-taught unit offerings, normally involving six-point units or multiples thereof (e.g. six, 12, 18, 24). A full-time student will normally complete 48 credit points in a year (24 in each semester).

Full documentary evidence in support of English proficiency must be submitted with applications for candidature. Where an applicant’s first language is not English or where degree qualifications were not undertaken in the English language, Monash reserves the right to seek further documentary evidence of English proficiency.

Fees published in this guide quote an annual fee based on a standard 48 credit point course. Courses with fewer or more credit point values in a year will attract a proportionate fee. For example, a 24 credit point course fee will be half the annual amount of a 48 credit point course. A 72 credit point course would be one and a half times the published annual fee.

English language requirements To ensure admissions processes are consistent across the University and that all applicants for degrees have the English skills to perform well in their studies, there are minimum English language entry requirements for courses at Monash University that applicants must meet in order to be considered for admission.
