Sea of opportunities but sea is scary
Tips: Just be open to everything and never give up. I got a scholarship and I worked hard for it, I am satisfied with the University. It is a little difficult but it is all about never giving up, I did not face much cultural difference. Overall it has been a great experience.
Likes (Post study jobs): University is one of the best in the country and not all but there are many companies offering sponsor visas. 60-100k is an average payout as Monash is known for its employability skills, you need to make sure that you have made the best out of your time and be everywhere without being conservative.
Dislikes (Part time work): For part time work bit less options but more opportunities off campus. You have to manage time well and with efficiency. 400 per week, you have to make sure you look out and apply everywhere it is a bit difficult but might take some time. Do not lose hope and keep at it.

Master of Science in Physics - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
My experience in Monash University was a mix of good and bad.
Tips: Course rigour is higher than comparable institutes in India (IITs, NITs, equivalent institutes of other disciplines). Quite a lot of self-study is expected. Plenty of resources are available for students, academic and otherwise, to achieve their goals. Australians are a friendly bunch of people usually. It is not all that difficult to find someone who can speak an Indian language, usually Hindi and/or Punjab. However, meeting and forming connections with people of all cultures is incredibly rewarding, both professionally and personally.
Likes (Indian Food): A lot of Indian immigrants lead to a variety of Indian restaurants. Ordering from outside is a bit more expensive than cooking at home, but not everybody has the time and energy to cook every day. Tiffin services are also available, usually provided by these restaurants.
Dislikes (Value for money): While the quality of faculty and education is fairly high, it being a master's programme, the tuition fee is high as well. Self-funded master's programs are worth the cost only if the degree provides a significant boost in the career, which, while not uncommon, happens only for a select few fields.

Degree is a piece of paper
Tips: Don't just stay and make friends with Indian people. Broaden your circle. I live with an Aussie family and through them have learnt so much about Aussie culture and values. I like Melbourne, people are nice if you are friendly. I experienced different cultures. I am happy with my course and university.
Dislikes (Value for money): Everything is dependent on self-study. Assignments were the only useful thing in the course, it's the name of the university that helps and nothing else, like a stamp. The assignments are definitely good. It looks good on your resume that you graduated from Monash, you have to apply for internships and find jobs by yourself .

A stress free yet stressed environment
Tips: Before joining the course research your course units and insights regarding the job prospects. Students should think about their accommodation options in detail. Monash has several scholarships that can be prevailed by students. Also, keep in regular touch with Monash authorities as they can guide you through various stages of college.
Likes (Safety): Monash provided several safety options around the campus that are available 24/7 to assist students. We could call them if we felt unsafe, they had different options of someone picking us up or dropping us off or accompanying us to our houses, especially at night.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): I reckon that jobs for people in the field that I accomplished are difficult to find. As the organisation prefer people with permanent residency or citizenship over other visas. Also, the university did not help with any job opportunities and I believe they could have helped us in this journey.

There are plenty of support options in terms of student advocacy, study support, admin support etc
Tips: Learn about research, journals, databases, using evidence such as references and citations for assignments, and formatting (APA/MLA etc. ). Get used to following a rubric, writing extensive reports and ensuring to not copy, cheat or writing vague things. Every single word is read and critiqued if required.
Likes (Public transportation): Public buses, teams and trains run on every route possible and at a good frequency too. From early morning till late in the night and ever past midnight. You can completely rely on public transport and it has great tracking options as well in the form of public transport apps.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Food options are plenty but usually located in far away locations. Clayton campus has a great Indian presence nearby so there are a lot of options (North Indian/South Indian) in the form of food trucks, cafes and restaurants. Caulfield campus has fewer options but the main city area again has a lot of options.
