Monash University

Distinguished Australian university teams up with Northwest Community College

Monash University representatives are in Smithers to discuss student options to start post secondary education at NWCC and end in Australia.

Representatives from Monash University are speaking today to students, parents and any other members of the public who are interested in starting college locally before finishing it in Australia.

Monash is the largest university in Australia, with 67,076 students registered in 2014. Of those, 24,000 were international.

The deal signed between Northwest Community College and Monash means a student’s first two years of post secondary education can start in Smithers or another campus, then continue for the next three years in Australia. That student would graduate with both a degree and a Masters from Monash University.

All programs ladder into university at NWCC, but now that ladder leads across the Pacific.

Other unique Australian options the representatives will discuss include direct entry into medicine from high school, double degrees, and direct entry into law studies.

The event is at 5 p.m. inside the Smithers Secondary School library.
