If i am doing a bachelor of global studies/science and do a diploma of languages on the side. How do i complete the diploma of languages? Is it concurrent? If so, do i overload? So 5 units instead of 4 per year?

If I was accepted into Science/Arts next year (first year), would I be able to transfer mid-year into Science Advanced - Research given that I have not done Methods? The transfer page says this:
Quote
The minimum eligibility requirements for a course transfer are:

being a current Monash student (you must maintain your enrolment)
meeting the prerequisites for the new course
performing at an appropriate level in your current course
successful completion of at least 12 credit points of a Monash University course.
BUT I've seen posts on here suggesting that a transfer from Science to Biomed is possible after 6 months/1 year without having done Methods. Would it be the same in my case?

If so, what effect, if any, would a transfer have on course progression?
If the Science Adv. - Research is my ultimate goal should I just begin with a single Science degree?

Typically, when transferring, I see two types of scenarios: (1) you can bypass the prereqs if you transfer or (2) you have to complete an equivalent unit or some sort of bridging course prior to transfer. I think you've got the latter case in this instance, but I'd probably contact Monash to confirm this.

If so, what effect, if any, would a transfer have on course progression?
Would just mean that you might have to do things a bit out of sync since the BSci (Research Adv.) degree follows most of the conventions as the normal BSci, meaning that you'd have to do two first year science sequences and a maths/stats unit sometime throughout the degree.

If the Science Adv. - Research is my ultimate goal should I just begin with a single Science degree?
It's really up to you. I'd suggest you research the differences between the two degrees.

Probably a dumb question, but itís possible to retake units, right? Iím pretty sure I failed the exam for one of my units which was required to pass the unit, and itís a core subject for one of my minors. I tried adding it on WES, but it says this if I try searching the unit code: ĎThis unit is already listed in your enrolment form or has already been completed and therefore cannot be selected more than once. Please submit your enrolment form or select another unit, or contact your faculty for further advice.í I tried searching by faculty and whatever as well but it didnít come up. I also tried putting in the unit code for a unit in a different faculty so itís probably a WES thing? I know people have retaken units before and I canít find any policy restricting it, but Iím not sure why itís not working. Anyone know? Iím guessing itís maybe because WES doesnít know yet whether Iíve failed or not and wonít let me enrol in the unit this early. If I find out on July 15th whether I passed the exam, and WES letís me enrol then, (the mid-semester took 2 weeks to get marks back but I donít know if theyíre taking longer for this one) I still have time to select my lecture/tutorial dates right?

When results day comes around, you should be able to add the unit in (as long as it's running again in the next semester) if you didn't pass it. WES still considers you to still be taking the unit, so you can't take it twice. The idea is you're meant to enrol in the coming semester on the assumption you pass all your units.

Allocate+ preferences close before results day, so if you change your units around after results day, you will be selecting classes during the adjustment period (opens 2nd July). The adjustment period is first come, first serve, so times you want may not be available.

Is there anyone who does/did Bachelor of Global Studies? I was wondering what's the difference between doing a language through the 'cultural competence' specialisation and through a diploma of languages? Thanks!

Hi Monash,
What is considered financial disadvantage for SEA's/ Monash guarantee?  Is there a specific income? Are family assets considered?

Hey!
Here's a direct quote for what Monash considers financial disadvantage:
Quote
Disadvantaged financial circumstances (low income) or excessive financial obligations, demonstrated by any of the following:

you or your family receive an income-tested Centrelink benefit (e.g. Youth Allowance, Abstudy, Health Care Card or Family Tax Benefit A)
you or your family are facing financial hardship or excessive financial obligation but do not receive a Centrelink benefit (e.g. living on a farm suffering from drought or floods).

You can find this info here :)

Hope this helps! ^-^

Hey guys,

My question is will you guys have any new courses starting in 2021 for 2020 graduates (mainly in the business faculty).

I know that there is already a variety of subjects in that faculty and this might seem selfish of myself but i'm hoping to do a double degree of "Bachelor of Commerce & Bachelor of Property and Real Estate" at Deakin Uni (mainly because it doesn't have Methods as a prereq) and then hopefully transferring over to Monash because its Monash lol. So i was wanting to know if Monash would have identical courses so that i am able to transfer over.

Cheers

Are there any decent scholarships available for a student who gets around 98 ATAR with slight financial disadvantage? For example if income is around 50k but assets are high- eg family owns a house (but have a family concession card). I have read the info on the monash website and it seems to vague, any additional info would be appreciated thanks.

Hi does anyone know previous year cut off scores for Monash Engineering Excellence Scholarship? Is it possible to get with low 99 ATAR? Also is year adjusted atar (with seas) used when allocating scholarships?

Unfortunately, I don't think there will be exactly identical courses (especially on the property/ real estate side of things), although some of the business and economics units (subjects) might be similar. I don't know whether that will change in the next 2 years, however, that's certainly something you can ask during an Open Day or contact the uni directly about. Would be asking about "credit transfers" for a smoother transition, if you do wish to take this path, so you can cut down on costs and time.

Depends on what you classify as "decent". For financial disadvantage in general:
Relevant Scholarships
- if you have Centrelink benefits, there's the Monash UniStart Support Scholarship, which is generally quite helpful for a small financial boost.
- Vice Chancellor's Scholarship for Excellence (Must have 95+ ATAR)
- Vice Chancellor's Scholarship for Achievement (Must also qualify for Monash Guarantee and 90+ ATAR)
- Pauline Glass Memorial Scholarship (if you're female, achieve a 95+ ATAR, have low income)
- Ocean King Scholarship (low income student)
- Monash Support Scholarship (low income student)
- Monash Mornington Peninsula Council Grant (low income student from within Peninsula shire)
- John and Pauline Gandel Scholarship (must be Access Monash Mentor, a full time Monash student, low income and achieve 90+ ATAR)
- Harold Carroll Memorial Scholarship (must have studied at certain western Victorian schools and have low income)
- There's a few more in this list depending on your circumstances.

Reason most of them are vague is because it's usually considered on a case-by-case and need basis.

Hi does anyone know previous year cut off scores for Monash Engineering Excellence Scholarship? Is it possible to get with low 99 ATAR?

Uh, I've forgotten but I've heard it differs a little each year depending on who applies for Engineering. My memory, for some reason or another, has 98.5 remembered, so that might have been the cutoff, but I'd take that number with a huge grain of salt. (I don't trust that number at all.) I think Excellence scholarships are usually considered without SEAS adjustments from memory, as they're usually about achievement. Although, I'm not 100% sure about this being true... I'd ask Monash directly to know whether it's need and achievement based or not to confirm.

Hello

Am I able to pursue a diploma of languages alongside the Bachelor of Applied Data Science Advanced?  Also, it seems like I get hardly any choice in what I study and very few elective units until like 3rd year. Can someone confirm this?

Hello

Seems like a really new course (as in youíll be a part of the first cohort next year if you do end up studying this), so I havenít heard much about this. Iíd ask Monash directly since itís so new, but similar courses (e.g. BSci) usually allow students to also take the Dip Lang.

As for electives, yeah that looks like the case based on the information I found here (although youíll be able to pick your stream via the applied units much earlier, it seems). This is usually the case for specialist degrees. However, given itís a brand new course, there might be some finetuning to the units in coming months/years, so you should confirm with Monash directly in case that happens.

Hello Monash, What is your guaranteed entry score for bachelor of bio medicine
Not Monash, but a graduate.

As per here, raw ATAR of 85 if youíre eligible for Monash Guarantee (generally if youíre covered by certain SEAS categories) and are looking at the normal Bachelor of Biomedical Science. Previously, the clearly-in ATAR was 92.00 (2018 start), but after the change to selection rankings, the median ATAR for the normal Bachelor of Biomedicine was 93.55 before adjustments.

Apart from Monash Guarantee, thereís no ďguaranteed entry scoreĒ that will get you into the Bachelor of Biomedical Science.
