Throughout the year the MGA organises on-campus and online social events, free lunches and activities for graduate students. Most events are free of charge but where there is a fee, the MGA subsidises the cost for Monash graduate students. Browse through our calendar of upcoming events and mark your diaries!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: To ensure the health and safety of all staff, volunteers and participants, physical distancing, regular hand sanitisation and QR code check-in and/or event registration are required for all on-campus events. You must always carry a face mask with you when you leave home unless you have a lawful reason not to. It is strongly recommended you wear a face mask whenever you cannot keep 1.5 metres distance from others. If you are feeling unwell, please stay home and do not attend any on-campus events.
