Contribute to the wonderful work of the MGA!

Each of our office-bearers on the MGA Executive Committee run advisory groups to learn more about what graduate students want and make decisions about which events, activities and issues should be pursued each semester.

This is a great way for us to reach out to a wider group of graduate students and for you to get to know your peers. Being in one of our advisory groups is not a competitive process and expressions of interest are accepted all year round.

Please note, you can identify with your special interest group, and allies are very welcome to join too.

Ready to go? Simply find the area that interests you in the list below and email the contact person to introduce yourself. The contact person will then let you know when and where the next meeting is scheduled.

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.
