The best part about this course is its structured format. Every unit is broken down into six bite-size modules, which means I just need to focus on one small task at a time. It is also incredibly flexible in allowing us to undertake the online quizzes anytime within the six-week teaching period. The tutors are amazingly knowledgeable and supportive. I found the assignments interesting, thought-provoking and challenging.
The Master of Public Health was appealing to me as it covered a variety of relevant topics, and I thought that the six-week unit structure would be manageable with full-time work. Being able to openly communicate with like-minded peers on discussion forums and getting feedback from engaging facilitators was interactive and thought-provoking.
I chose to study at Monash based on its prestige as one of the best institutions for technology in Australia, its long history of research and application of data science and machine learning, and the industry links and experience of its lecturers. The online delivery model of Monash Online courses and evening workshops/meet-ups also fit well with my current lifestyle and full-time employment.
Monash University has high academic standards, it leads the way in research and innovation, and it is well recognised in the profession of psychology. Given that Monash University sets high expectations for its students, I wanted to be a part of this respected tertiary system.
I really enjoyed the compact nature of the course, which focused on one subject for six weeks before moving on to the next. It allowed me to really engage with the content without distraction from competing assignments in other courses.
The weekly prescribed readings, weekly online classes, the ability to interact with instructors and peers via various forums and blogs are part of the enjoyable journey in Graduate Diploma in Psychology. The field of psychology is very broad and these entry-level subjects have equipped me with a strong foundation to pursue further studies.
The course has been amazing. I have learned so much more than I ever imagined and it has truly opened up a new world of possibilities for me. Although I have never met any of the other students in person, I feel like I know many of them very well through working on group assignments together. It has been great to get to know them ‘virtually’.
I was impressed from the first contact I had with Monash Online and have since appreciated their continued focus on helping me to succeed academically and professionally.
Studying online with Monash gave me the flexibility I needed to be able to study part-time and fit it around my existing commitments.
Monash Online provided me with an opportunity to begin my psychological training journey and still remain committed to other priorities in my life, such as my family.
I live in a rural area with limited educational opportunities and it didn’t suit my lifestyle to relocate. I wanted a course that would enable me to continue to live and work rurally. Studying with Monash Online has enabled me to stay in my community while gaining an accredited qualification from a University with a good reputation.
When I decided I wanted to return to university to pursue psychology, I wanted to enrol and start studying as soon as possible. Because there are six teaching periods throughout the year, I was able to get started straight away with Monash Online.
