A career in health offers many benefits.

Did you know that employment in the healthcare and social assistance industry has increased by 445,600 jobs (or 51.5%) in the last 10 years! Healthcare and social assistance is the largest employing industry in Australia, employing more than 1.3 million people (or 11.5% of the total workforce). So the opportunities are endless. And future employment growth is expected to increase further as our population ages and developments in medical technology expand healthcare options.

In addition to the extra demand for workers, Australia continues to experience a shortage of skilled workers in the health sector, in particular: nurses, midwives, medical diagnostic radiographers and physiotherapists, clinical psychologists and general medical practitioners.

Monash University is the largest university in Australia, ranked in the world's top 100 and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight. We're named after Sir John Monash, and fuelled by his desire for our students to leave here with a greater sense of purpose, and the skills and confidence to create positive change.

In under 60 years, we've grown from a single campus into an education and research powerhouse with a presence on four continents, committed to the challenges of the age, making an impact all over the world, from bringing clean water to villages in Africa to creating new life-saving. Being a Monash student and graduate, you are sure that you will have a life-long prestigious degree that will enrich your life.

Monash is ranked:

  • Top 60 universities in the world (QS World University Rankings)
  • 21st in the World's Most International Universities in 2017 as released by Times Higher Education
