International students

Before you can take advantage of our quality education and life on campus at Monash Malaysia as an international student, you need to take care of some important business, as required by the Malaysian Government.

Student pass 

After accepting your study offer from us, you need to organise a Student Pass, which we do for you.

This is a very important step – only students who hold a valid Student Pass can study in Malaysia and receive a Monash student ID. We arrange your pass, but it’s issued by Malaysian immigration.

Health check and insurance

To get your Student Pass, you must have a health check, which we arrange for you when you arrive. You must also take out health insurance, which we pay for you after you accept your offer.

International student support

International student advisers are available to help you or refer you to appropriate services for matters related to accommodation, medical insurance, places to visit in Malaysia, where to eat and other general support in order to help you settle in at the University and also get the most out of your time in Malaysia.
