MONASH UNIVERSITY FOUNDATION YEAR
BACHELOR OF LAW

"Towards the end of semester when it gets closer to exams, people call you from Monash and check that you are going OK. Someone is there to listen to you, it shows that someone really cares. If you can't submit an assignment or have problems with an exam, there is a lot of support available to you. Monash is very considerate and they really want people to succeed."
