The university has six campuses throughout Australia and serves more than 48,000 students including 12,000 international students from 100 countries. Exchange students have access to an extensive orientation program that includes field trips, dinners and other social events. Students can take classes at any of the six campuses, although the most popular ones are Clayton and Caufield. These are Monash’s largest campuses and offer the widest variety of classes.
