Postgrad Groups

Postgrad groups are important for postgrads to feel supported and confident within Monash. More often than not, these groups can lead to many opportunities for collaboration, a stronger sense of who their cohort is and an enhanced information/strategy network.

Mentorship Program

The mentor program aims to provide new students with guidance on surviving and thriving at Monash, through on and off-campus tips

Volunteer Program

The MPA has a well-established volunteer program that runs every semester. Our volunteers are integral to orientations, social events and trips run by the MPA.

Fitness Program

The MPA hosts a wide range of weekly and one-off fitness sessions exclusively for Monash postgrads (for FREE). From yoga, walking groups, and self-defence classes, to cycling groups, tai chi, badminton, soccer and Zumba – we have it all going.
