In 1998, the Malaysian Ministry of Education invited Monash to set up a campus in Malaysia in collaboration with the Sunway Group. Monash University Malaysia was established in the same year, the first Monash campus outside Australia and the first "foreign" university in Malaysia.
A second off-shore campus was opened in South Africa in 2001. Since 2014, Monash South Africa has not operated as a full campus of Monash University but remains a location where Monash University degrees are delivered, along with qualifications unique to this location.
Focus Monash lays out the goals and priorities for Monash University for the next five years. The ambitions it contains outline the international excellence in research and education that will be developed from a deeply internationalised, enterprising and inclusive University. Commitment to collaboration with industry, government, university and community partners across the world is key to the way that our goals will be realised.
