    Bachelor's Programmes

Beginning in the 1990s, Monash University in Melbourne, Australia began an extensive internationalization program. Vice-Chancellor at the time, David Robinson, aspired for Monash to have campuses on every continent. The University’s Malaysia Campus was the first of these, with plans for an African offering developing in the late 1990s.

Beginning in the 1990s, Monash University in Melbourne, Australia began an extensive internationalization program. Vice-Chancellor at the time, David Robinson, aspired for Monash to have campuses on every continent. The University’s Malaysia Campus was the first of these, with plans for an African offering developing in the late 1990s. In 2001, it became the first international university to gain registration to operate in South Africa.

The campus has expanded rapidly since its establishment in 2001. In its first intake, Monash South Africa took on just over 100 students. By 2008, there were over 2,200 students, and the operations are expanding to keep up with a demand for places which is increasing by 35% per year. A new library and learning commons were opened in 2007. By 2012 a fully modernized sports precinct was built, which played host to the eventual Gauteng state champion Monash South Africa female basketball team, coached by Tomas Sanchez and Matthew Falvey. Initially, Monash South Africa taught only a limited range of undergraduate degrees. In 2006, honors programs were introduced. Monash South Africa is the only private institution to receive South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) accreditation for its accounting degree.

The University is also developing research capacity, developing research nodes in water, injury prevention and global movements. Its research output (various projects and scholarly publications) is increasing, with the ambition of becoming one of the most research-intensive sites in Africa

They offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate study options, including degrees and postgraduate diplomas. Academic study takes on a whole new meaning at MSA with tutorial groups, personal attention, robust research and strong links with industry.

Their research aligns with the research agendas of South Africa and the African continent. They are global in scope, but firmly rooted in their country (SA) and it is particularly the water research that has impacted regional and national policy and awareness on the importance of clean, potable water for all South Africans.
