HDR Social Evening | Clayton

Join our monthly gatherings for HDR  students to connect, compare notes and network.

Are you a PhD or Masters by Research student at Monash? That means you are an “HDR student” and you should definitely join one of our regular social gatherings that are just for you and your kind!

These socials are a great opportunity to meet people going through the same research journey as you, exchange ideas and network with students from all different faculties and disciplines. Even better, your snacks and your first beer, wine, juice or coffee will be on us!


You can also join our Facebook Group to stay connected with other HDR students.


End-of-Year Summer Sizzle

We will be ramping up the last HDR Social of the year to celebrate everyone’s hard work. There will be sausages! There will be drinks! There will be fun! There will also be a best paper hat contest.

Students will get two drink tickets that can be exchanged for a coffee or alcoholic beverage. We will have sausages, and will try to cater for halal and veg/vegan, GF options.

Come ready to get creative. We’ll provide the newspaper and students can make their best, most sizzlin’ hat. All hats must be made on-site to enter the contest and will be judged by staff members. Prizes will be given!


Date: Wednesday, 7 December

Time: 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Venue: Cinque Lire Café, 15 Innovation Walk, Clayton Campus
