MONASH UNIVERSITY

Monash University is a public university based in Melbourne, Victoria. It was founded in 1958 and is the second oldest university in the state. Monash is a member of Australia's Group of Eight and the ASAIHL. Monash enrols approximately 39,000 undergraduate and 16,000 graduate students, making it the university with the largest student body in Australia. It also has more applicants than any university in the state of Victoria.

Monash is home to major research facilities, including the Australian Synchrotron, the Monash Science Technology Research and Innovation Precinct (STRIP), the Australian Stem Cell Centre, 100 research centres and 17 co-operative research centres. In 2008, Monash University attracted more than $210 million of research investment and grants from various Government bodies and external organisations.

The university has eight campuses, six of which are Victoria (Clayton, Caulfield, Berwick, Peninsula, Parkville, and Gippsland), one in Malaysia, and one in South Africa. Monash also has a research and teaching centre in Prato, Italy, a graduate research school in Mumbai, India. and is developing a graduate school in Jiangsu Province, China.

The photos below are from the main Clayton Campus (first three shots) and also from the Caulfield Campus (all the rest), where I was recently for work. We have had some wonderful Spring days lately, although the weather is still quite changeable.

  8. Oh my gush, I have not seen a school campus in the Philippines like this beautiful! For me there is no reason why a student would fail, the ambiance is enough for students to focus on his/her studies. ^_^ Awesome shots!
