Hello and welcome from the Monash Graduate Association (MGA)

A special welcome to all new Monash University graduate students (Masters & PhD) commencing in November 2020! After many months of being in lockdown here in Melbourne, we now have lots of experience running everything online. So whether you are coming from near or far, the MGA would like to invite you to join us for an event or two during Orientation Week! You will get valuable advice and useful contacts that will help you thrive in your graduate studies, a rundown of services offered by the MGA and an opportunity to get connected with the rest of the Monash graduate community! We hope to see you then.

Stay connected with the MGA throughout your Monash graduate student journey!
