UNDER-REPRESENTED SCHOOLS LIST FOR 2019
The Monash under-represented schools list for 2019 entry is now available online. If your school is on the list, your students are eligible for the Monash Guarantee. If your school is not on the list, students may still be eligible for SEAS if they:
- live in a low socio-economic area
- have experienced financial disadvantage
- are an Indigenous Australian
This list is based on a combination of the Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA), distribution of students by socio-economic status, and transition to university data.
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2019
Don’t forget that Monash offers a range of scholarships to commencing students to help them excel at university. Our scholarships recognise high achievers, support students who have faced difficult circumstances, help regional and rural students through relocation and accommodation grants, and encourage Indigenous students to enter higher education.
Each scholarship may have a different application process or none at all. Students who list Monash University as a VTAC course preference will be automatically assessed for all merit scholarships. Equity scholarships require students to complete the VTAC scholarships application.
DISABILITY SUPPORT SERVICES
Monash is committed to access and equity for all students. Disability Support Services assists students with disabilities, mental health and ongoing medical conditions. This includes students with learning difficulties, short- term injuries and students on the Autism Spectrum.
Disability Support Services also provide support for students who are carers of a person who is aged and frail, or has a disability, medical or mental health condition.

MEDICINE, NURSING AND HEALTH SCIENCES
BOOST ENTRY INTO MEDICINE WITH THE DEAN’S RURAL LIST
Do any of your students have a rural background and an interest in studying medicine? They may be eligible for the Dean’s Rural List, which can increase their chances of being invited to attend an interview for Medicine at Monash.
Students need to have spent at least five consecutive years, or 10 years all up, living in a rural or regional area. Use the Doctor Connect website to help your students check if their current or previous addresses meet the area classification.
ARTS, HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES
ARTS CAREERS ARE AT LOW RISK OF AUTOMATION
“Students should be thinking, ‘in 20 years, where will the human add value?’” - Shon Burton, CEO, Hiring Solved.
This is what we need to be asking. The future of work is uncertain and Arts graduates are comfortable with uncertainty, developing the agility to move with the changing times. Arts builds careers and creates change.
Our courses help to create world citizens, challenge abstract knowledge to real world problems and teach the power of communication.
We encourage our students to study abroad, volunteer, intern and lead. We offer more than a degree.
