Our research today

Our research tradition

Influenza treatment

Nobel Peace Prize

Today our ambition and optimism are stronger than ever. We have a clear vision of what we want our research to achieve and how we’ll help our researchers make it happen.

Even before we became the global university we are today, our researchers looked beyond traditional boundaries, creating new frontiers and discovering new ways of approaching the fields in which they worked. It’s why a Monash education is respected around the world. Things that we now take for granted would not exist without the initial work of Monash researchers:

In 1986, a team from our Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (formerly the Victorian College of Pharmacy) designed and synthesised the anti-flu drug, Relenza. Relenza first became available in Australia in 1999 and is now used globally.

In 2007, eight scientists from Monash University shared in the prestige of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded jointly to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and former US VicePresident Al Gore.

Although we conduct research across over 150 fields of study we focus on a number of specialisations. We call these our leading capabilities. We’ve grouped these capabilities into four categories:

First In-vitro Fertilisation Pregnancy

– health and wellbeing

Professors Alan Trounson and Carl Wood achieved the world’s first IVF pregnancy in 1973. The Trounson and Wood team went on to achieve Australia’s first (and the world’s fourth) successful IVF birth in 1980.

– future technologies – sustainable environments – resilient cultures and communities

Road safety (seatbelts) In 1964, work by Monash researchers led to the world’s first laws requiring that seatbelts be installed in all new cars. Dramatic decreases in road deaths and injuries followed immediately.

Making a

difference Monash is a university that seeks to make a difference. We judge our research not only by its academic excellence, but by the impact it has on the communities we engage with and serve. We have always recognised that our work does not end at the “Eureka!” moment. It continues until we have found a way to turn our breakthrough into a change for the better. Our research specialisations: _ health and wellbeing _ future technologies _ sustainable environments _ resilient cultures and communities

10


Orientation Our orientation service incorporates a series of programs to help students adjust to a new country, and find their way around campus, not to mention the surrounding community. Activities include visiting the local supermarket, using public transport, social events and friendship programs.

Student support Monash has services in place to help you adapt to and enjoy your university life as well as fulfill your academic potential. Student Service Centres are located on each of the Australian campuses. Staff can deal with your questions on admissions, enrolment, fees, examinations, graduations and scholarships. www.adm.monash.edu/ servicecentre

Monash Postgraduate Association (MPA) All Monash postgraduate students automatically become members of the Monash Postgraduate Association. In addition to its seminar program, the association provides services for postgraduate students, including: _ s ocial functions such as lunches, coffee clubs and question-andanswer sessions _n  ewsletters and publications including Compass, MPA guide to postgraduate programs and a weekly MPA email news bulletin _a  dvice, advocacy and mediation on issues that postgraduate students may encounter during their study _ r epresentation on Monash University and faculty committees _ s eminars to help you make the transition from successful study to a successful career, these seminars address helpful topics like publishing, time management, career management and writing skills.

Academic support

Tutors are available to guide advanced students through research methodology, conference presentation and the best way of submitting academic papers.

Suruswadee Jaimsuwan Thai student, Master of Laws (Intellectual Property) 2011 “There were many reasons why I enjoyed studying for my master’s degree at Monash. The location of Chambers in the CBD was very convenient, the research and language skills advisers were very helpful and the lecturers were all very knowledgeable but ‘down to earth’ and enthusiastic. Staff were always very helpful and responded to my emails promptly too! The assessment system equipped me with great skills to undertake research academically, and to advise clients professionally – a perfect combination that I can use in the future. I enjoyed my stay in Melbourne – both the studies and my free time. Studying at the Monash Law School gave me the chance to enjoy both aspects of my life.” Monash Law School is currently undertaking a course review. Programs may change.

Aim to have your application received by International Recruitment at least two to four months prior to the course start date. This allows time for your application to be processed and can help to ensure that you secure a place if your preferred course has limited places. Applying early also gives you time to get your student visas, which can take up to six months for some nationalities and countries.

Step 1: Apply Complete the postgraduate application form located at the back of this course guide, or apply online at www.monash.edu/study/ international/apply/postgraduate. html.
