The university has a number of campuses, four of which are in Victoria (Clayton, Caulfield, Peninsula, and Parkville), and one in Malaysia. Monash University also has a research and teaching center in Prato, Italy, a graduate research school in Mumbai, India, and a graduate school in Suzhou, China.

Monash University enrolled over 55,000 undergraduate and over 25,000 graduate students in 2019. The university has more candidates than any other university in the state of Victoria.
Monash University is a member of Australia’s Group of Eight research universities, a member of the ASAIHL, and is the only Australian member of the M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centers, Universities, and National Academies.
The university is one of the Australian universities to be rated in the École des Mines de Paris (Mines ParisTech) ranking based on the number of alumni listed among CEOs in the 500 largest worldwide companies.
Monash University is constantly ranked among the world’s top 55–70 universities in the QS World University Rankings. Founded by an Act of Parliament in 1958, the original campus was in the suburb of Clayton where the university was granted an expansive site of 100 hectares of open land. The 100 hectares of land comprises farmland and included the former Talbot Epileptic Colony. The Tudor-style farmhouse built by the O’Shea family became the main Vice-Chancellor’s House – now University House.
In addition, from the university’s first intake of 357 students at Clayton on 13 March 1961, the university grew very fast in size and student numbers so that by 1967, it had enrolled over 21,000 students since its establishment.
In Monash University’s early years, it offered undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in engineering, medicine, science, arts, economics, politics, education, and law. The university was a major provider for international student places under the Colombo Plan, which saw the first Asian students enter the Australian education system.
