    I chose Monash University because it is a world-class university. It is recognized globally. I being a person who was a native resident of Malaysia, has always been fascinated by what the life of students is in Monash. How the campus and infrastructure are, and probably how the different events take place at Monash. Thus, I went ahead with the application process and fill up an online form of RM100.

    It has the course I wanted specifically, which is dietetics. Not many universities offer a straight course into dietetics except Monash, as most places would require an undergrad Nutrition course and then a masters course into dietetics.

    Monash University is not only one of the top colleges in Australia but one of the best in the world. It is also the only university in Victoria that offers Medicine at an undergraduate level which was something I really wanted as I did not want to waste time with another degree prior to medicine. The college is accessible from anywhere in Melbourne and is known to have a culture of empowering and supporting students. I applied to the university through its official website, I paid AU$100 as an application fee.

    Scholarship :

    There are academic and non-academic scholarships available.

    Reputation. Came to know through a friend. Easy admission process and quick responses to email queries. Met uni representatives in Bangalore which made it easier to get all questions answered. Studied BSc in my undergrad 65%. No other criteria was looked at for admission. Application fees were waived by the agency I applied through.

    Scholarship :

    I was automatically provided with a scholarship when I applied

    I chose Monash for a variety of reasons. One of them is that I wanted to live in Australia for a couple of years. It is a huge, beautiful country that I explore as much as I can during my breaks or even the weekends. I also chose it because of the city. Melbourne is by far my favourite city in Australia. It is extremely diverse, the architecture is out of this world and it's a paradise for foodies. Furthermore, Monash is ranked among the top universities worldwide. It also has a futuristic structural design that is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

    I got to know about the uni through friends and consultation. The admission process was quite simple and I got full support from university staff. I have applied for 3 universities university of Melbourne, Monash University and Deakin University. I received an offer from all the 3 but ended up selecting Monash university.

    The graduation score was good enough to get in. I applied through VTAC which was a relatively easy and simple process. There were no application fees to apply for the university. I applied to three universities through the VTAC process but Monash University (in particular the bachelor of science and the bachelor of biomedical science) was my first preference.

    Scholarship :

    No

    Great course, location (this campus was close to where I lived and made it easy to commute to), a recommendation from friends and family as well as the university having a strong standing in the community in terms of its course offering.

    Scholarship :

    No, I do not have any form of scholarship or financial aid. The only thing I have been offered as an Australian citizen is HECS.

    Monash University is a very well know and respected university due to its advanced research facilities and affiliation with the industry. I applied to a total of 3 universities but Monash Uni was the one I wanted to join the most. I had an agent to help me with the application procedures and everything went on quite smoothly. I graduated with a 1st Class Honours in 2018.

    It has a great Nutrition Science program that allows u to be qualified to work in both Australia and the UK. I wanted to study food anyhow so after I graduated high school last year, I applied to 8 courses with this one being my first preference. I got offered to study either this or Bachelor of Health Sciences but I wanted to study food so I chose Nutrition.
