As a Monash student, you are part of a globalised community. Your student experience will be shaped by a diverse range of people - whether you are on campus at Monash, on exchange overseas, or travelling during our breaks. But how can you be effective in this multicultural environment?

Being a global citizen is a crucial attribute for successful leaders. Being culturally aware will allow you to communicate effectively, as well as anticipate, correctly interpret, and adjust to the culturally defined habits of the people around us.


The Monash intercultural lab coordinates a suite of units available across various disciplines in A2000 Bachelor of Arts, A2001 Bachelor of Global Studies, A0502 Diploma of Liberal Arts and masters programs.
