MGA Advocacy: Return to face-to-face learning

Monash University is requiring all domestic and international students to return to face-to-face learning in 2023. If you are strugling with the transition of online to face-to-face learning, read on!

From 1 July 2023, online learning options for certain units will no longer be available. As a result, many international students are finding that some of their units no longer have an online delivery option.

Students who are unable to study face to face (or in the delivery mode that their units require) will be recommended to seek course advice to discuss other unit options that have an online delivery mode or may need to take intermission until their situation changes. Students can check their Handbook to see which of their units have an online delivery mode.

Keep in mind to check census and penalty dates before changing or withdrawing from a unit or you may face academic and financial penalties.

Students with COVID high health risk may be eligible to register with DSS and seek other adjustments to support their learning if face-to-face learning is not suitable for them.

If you have any questions or need help managing your return to face-to-face learning, please contact our advocates. We will get back to you on the same day or the very next day. This is a free service and anything you tell us is confidential.   

There is no such thing as a silly question. Get in touch – you don’t have to go through this alone!

Work for the MGA

The MGA employs Monash graduate students to fill the receptionist roles at the Clayton and Caulfield offices. When a vacancy arises we advertise the position through our email newsletter and on our website.

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! If you can’t find what you are looking for, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
