MELBOURNE, Vic. Australia. Aug. 4 2018 (Antara/Medianet International) --

Monash University is leading the way in Indonesia-Australia relations, with Indonesia at the heart of some of Monash's most ambitious and impactful projects.

Providing educational opportunities to more Indonesian students than any other Australian university, Monash has helped 10,000 Indonesian students achieve a degree or qualification.

In September, Monash is offering Indonesian students the opportunity to meet world-leading academics and learn about how Monash is impacting global research.

There is also an opportunity to meet academics and discuss how to maximise the chances of being selected as a PhD candidate at the Monash University Doctoral Program Information Day. This is a free event that offers prospective PhD students the opportunity to find out more about studying at Monash.

Monash is hosting an alumni panel discussion on the "Industrial Revolution 4.0"; evolving technological trends that will fundamentally transform how we live and work.

The Doctoral Information Day will cover:
* How to approach potential supervisors and the qualities supervisors look for in students
* Tips on pitching a thesis proposal
* How to fund studies, with representatives from Australian and Indonesian scholarship agencies
* Insights from Monash alumni
