Monash University congratulated the 9749 students granted a first round offer to study at the University this year.
First round offers made by Monash through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre increased by 4.4 per cent on 2013 figures.
When added to offers already made in early rounds, 10,030 offers have been made by Monash compared with 9,621 last year.
Provost and Senior Vice-President Professor Edwina Cornish said the strong number of offers reflected an increasing demand for the University’s education programs.
“An increase in first round offers is reflective of the strong demand for Monash courses and underlines the University’s commitment to expanding higher education opportunities for prospective students,” Professor Cornish said.
“The University is very pleased with the strength and quality of demand during the first-round selection period.”
The continued overall growth was reflected at the faculty level, with various faculties increasing their offers. The biggest increase has been in courses related to biomedical science, education, science, and business and economics.
The largest increase in demand was for the Bachelor of Nursing at the University’s Clayton campus, which rose significantly since its introduction at the campus in 2013.
The University’s largest course offering was for the Bachelor of Science, with first round offers increasing by 4.9 per cent and the clearly-in Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank also increasing in 2014.
