  • Future Burger

Future Burger. A burger from the future, while you think about yours. The Faculty of Information Technology is setting up a campaign that encompasses all things around IT and Engineering. How technology is engrained into all parts of our lives and how we strive to make things work better or more efficiently. Or perhaps, make us have to move around less!

Students will be given the chance to receive a super tasty Mr. Burger and fries, delivered straight to them by a drone at the Open Day. Students are encouraged to register for this exciting experience at Future Burger.


  • DoTS and DoHE at Monash

The Diploma of Tertiary Studies (DoTS) offers an alternative entry pathway to Monash should students not meet the requirements for direct entry into a range of Monash bachelor degrees. DoTS is equivalent to first year of a university undergraduate degree, and students can enter directly into second year of destination Monash degrees upon successful completion of the Diploma.

The one year program lets students begin studying towards their Monash degree from day one and is currently offered at our Berwick and Peninsula campuses. When students apply for DoTS, they will select a preferred stream from Business, Education or Nursing. It is this stream that forms the first year of their degree, and determines the Monash destination degree they can pathway into.

To apply for DoTS, students will need to have completed either Year 12 with an ATAR of at least 50, and must also have met the relevant English prerequisite and complete a supplementary form.


Students interested in studying science, mathematics or related areas, might like to consider the Diploma of Higher Education (DoHE), currently offered at the Clayton campus, and which provides an alternative entry pathway into an undergraduate course in these areas. Like the DoTS program, this program also lets students begin studying towards their Monash degree from day one. Students will be introduced to a broad range of science fields by completing a sequence of study in two of the following areas: Biological Science, Chemistry, Geosciences, Mathematics and Physics.  This will allow students gain a foundation in key scientific principles while determining their future major area of study.

All important details about both the DoTS and DoHE including prerequisite information can be found on at DoTS and DoHE
