Monash has achieved an enviable national and international reputation for research and teaching excellence in a short 50 years. Monash is ranked in the top 1 per cent of world universities. (See 'Our rankings and what they mean'.) And, in line with our vision and strategy for the future, Monash will continue to drive for improvement.
Monash have five local campuses throughout Victoria, two international locations in Malaysia and in South Africa, and centres in the People's Republic of China, Italy and India. Each provides an environment that identifies and nurtures talent – and turns that talent into ability.
To underscore the reputation that the University had earned, in 1999 Monash were invited to be a founding member of the Group of Eight, the coalition of Australia's most prestigious research-intensive universities.
Monash had been around for just four decades, and yet was demonstrably holding its own against universities that had had well over a century to establish themselves.
