  • Monash University in Australia (primary work site)
  • The University of Warwick in the United Kingdom

Two world-class institutions redefining research and higher education through the Monash Warwick Alliance.

Together, we take a unique approach to university collaboration that draws on an impressive range of expertise and depth of thinking. Both Monash and Warwick are renowned for research excellence, and both have world-class facilities and infrastructures. Our Alliance combines these resources, integrates researchers into an international team and tackles the global challenges of the 21st century.

By working together we help equip our graduates for a global career, and undertake research that addresses the seemingly insurmountable problems that face the world.

An Alliance between two institutions on opposite sides of the world enables us to build international high impact research collaborations and to provide our students with greater breadth and insight - whether that's for a joint PhD or Master's degree programme, or through 'virtual mobility' in the form of interdisciplinary modules and online learning.
