The MGA Executive Committee (MGAEC) governs the MGA and works to promote graduate students interests across the University.

Get to know your campus a little better by getting the low down on graduate-specific study spaces, services, facilities, events and seminars available to you.

Whether you’re caught in an academic knot, or just after some independent advice, don’t hesitate to speak to one of our advocates today. Advice is free, confidential and independent.

Meet other graduate students with similar interests at one of our trips, seminars or activities. Learn new skills, make lifelong friends and memories that last forever.

Inspiring & Supporting Graduate Students

The Monash Graduate Association (MGA) is the representative body for all graduate research and coursework students enrolled at Monash University. So, what sets us apart from the University services? The MGA is an independent, not-for-profit association governed by graduate students, for graduate students. Our primary aim is to be there for you! Browse through our website to find out about the services we offer and get involved in shaping your own graduate experience. If you can’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us – we’d love to hear from you!
