Monash Extension at SOPHIS

The Monash Extension program (formerly known as Enhancement Studies) is offered by Monash to enable students in their last year at school to take a pair of university subjects as part of their VCE year.

The subjects count both toward the ENTER score and toward an eventual degree. To gain entry to the program, students have to be established ‘A level’ achievers, and they must have the support of their school.

The School offers subjects in Jewish Civilisation & Philosophy as VCE Extension subjects. Students take two subjects in this program:

Jewish Civilisation


These are normal university subjects, and to pass, you must reach the usual university standards.
