“I like the way teachers and staff at Monash understand international students. This starts from a very simple application process, all the way through to the way my courses are designed. First, Monash helped me improve my English. Then I was taught the Australian way of learning through the Foundation Year program. Finally, I got into my desired course at Monash University and I’m now well on my way to becoming a doctor!"

"Biology is an amazing introduction into how the human body functions. The content introduces you to the scientific language you'll need in your degree. Foundation year gives you the opportunity to complete experiments and group work. You'll build your communication skills, which will help you effectively explain information to your patients and colleagues."
