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.
