Welcome to Monash Caulfield
Hi, I am Akash Varma,  elected OSS (Overseas Student Services) officer for 2018 and I will be representing all international students at Caulfield campus under MONSU Caulfield.

The MONSU crew helps thousands of students through a number of weekly or annual events such as Beach Day, Cultural Carnival and many more. If you have any questions about how you can get international student support at Caulfield, feel free to contact me by emailing or find out more about MONSU events online.
