In 2012, 60 per cent of graduates were given access to their degrees by completing our Foundation programme.



An undergraduate course is normally your first degree. At Monash South Africa we have four study areas to choose from, and one which allows you to specialise at the undergraduate level.

Business Science (Accounting)

Our Bachelor of Business Science (Accounting) is accredited by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) and the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA).



Honours is an optional additional year of study to further your understanding and learning in your major area. It's highly regarded by employers, and can lead to further study specialisations (like becoming a professional accountant or a psychologist), or research.


Become an expert in victimology and criminal justice, accounting, business management, marketing or a specialist IT field.



Masters by coursework or research enables you to carry out research on your chosen topic while being supervised by one of our academics.

Postgraduate diplomas equip you with much needed skills to further your career.


Students often complete their masters by research as a pathway into a PhD and a career in academia.
