Foundation year – extended
The extended program is 14 weeks of study to prepare you for foundation year. The extra preparation will build your confidence and academic skills in all your subjects. If you need some extra help, we'll improve your English, mathematics and science skills so you are ready to start the standard program with confidence. You will have longer to settle in, make friends, and be ready to succeed at Monash University.
You will have an individual learning plan and receive lots of support from your teachers. After you successfully complete the extended program, you'll join semester one of the standard program.
