High-achieving Chinese students will now be able to gain direct entry into over 160 Monash University undergraduate degrees, with the University recognising results from the national university entrance exam, Gaokao.
Students who achieve the higher Tier 1 Gaokao university cut-off score for their province will meet the academic requirements for entry into all Monash University undergraduate degrees, with the exception of Law and Dean’s Scholars courses.
Students who achieve the lower Tier 1 Gaokao university cut-off scores for their province will meet the academic requirements for entry into a selected number of Monash University undergraduate degrees.
Students who achieve scores lower than the Tier 1 cut-off may meet the academic requirements for entry into Monash College Diploma Part 2 and Monash University Foundation Year program, which articulate into relevant Monash University undergraduate degrees at Year 2 or Year 1 respectively.
Executive Director of Future Students at Monash University, Sunny Yang, said the change is designed to give Chinese students a greater range of entry options into Monash University.
“Last year, a small number of Monash faculties participated in a trial of considering Gaokao for direct entry. The University is now moving to extend this across board.”
“This effectively means we now provide an additional pathway for high-achieving Chinese students to be able to apply for an undergraduate degree at Monash University with their Gaokao results.”
“Our Monash College Diploma and Foundation courses will continue to be an ideal stepping stone for Chinese students who may not have received the Gaokao score they hoped for or who would like an introduction to Australian university education before moving into a degree.”
Monash College is a Monash University entity, which specialises in building upon international students’ prior learning to develop required academic and social skills for success at university. Monash College programs, such as the Monash University Foundation Year and Diploma courses, do not require Gaokao or IELTS examination results for admission when combined with a Monash English pathway. Monash College programs guarantee entry into Monash University based on achievement of set entry requirements.”
Monash University is ranked in the world’s top 100 according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and was recently ranked within the world’s top 50 in 22 disciplines by the QS World Subject Ranking 2013. The University was ranked 6th in the world in the discipline of Education and equal 7th in the world in Pharmacy and Pharmacology. The 2012 annual survey of global CEOs and recruitment firms published in The New York Times has again rated Monash highly, ranking the University the best in Australia and the 32nd in the world from which to hire graduates.
“We welcome Chinese high school students to consider a Monash University experience, enabled by the many entry pathways we now offer to Chinese students,” Ms Yang said.
The change will take place in time for enrolments for Semester 2, 2013. Students will still be required to meet applicable subject prerequisites or other entry requirements (including English Language requirements) for their preferred degree.
