Pre-departure briefings

We want you to feel comfortable in Australia from the moment you get here. That's why we hold pre-departure briefings for future students and their families.

The briefings are comprehensive. We cover:

  • enrolment
  • IT requirements
  • what to bring to Australia
  • customs and quarantine
  • our airport pick-up service
  • ESOS regulations and visa issues
  • accommodation
  • cost of living
  • transport
  • cultural differences
  • support services and programs
  • safety and security.

The briefings also give you the opportunity to meet other students before you get to university. Monash staff and current international students will be there to answer your questions.
