As a student of Monash University, you are entitled to a professional standard of quality and care when it comes to the education you receive. This is especially important considering that students are often paying significant fees to access a Monash education.

Courses offered must be fit for the purpose in accordance with advertised material. Failure to live up to the standard may amount to misleading or deceptive conduct. The following examples, albeit not exhaustive, fall within the category of course quality concerns:

  • Lack of facilities or resources
  • Lack of feedback or timely feedback
  • Last minute time table changes
  • Outdated material
  • Poor teaching and lecturing
  • Uncertain assessment criteria

I am unhappy with the teaching in my unit/course, how can the MGA help?

An MGA Advocate can help you identify the issues and what your desired outcome is, and help you push for change in the way the unit or course is run. The advocate can assist you in navigating any processes that will help you in providing feedback or making a complaint. Contact an advocate today to find out how we might be able to help you.

Work for the MGA

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!
