You will have the opportunity to make new friends through participating in introductory sessions within your Diploma, and by involving yourself in sporting and Melbourne based orientation activities.
Throughout your time at Monash College, you will be able to involve yourself in a range of activities, based on your interests, and you will also have the chance to develop your leadership skills. We offer a Mentor Program which recognizes the importance of students learning from each other.
Laura is also responsible for monitoring the progress of all Under 18 students and will help you understand our requirements in the areas of accommodation and welfare.
Finally, the Student Experience Coordinator will encourage you to challenge and enjoy yourself, ensuring you make the most of your College experiences.
If you have any questions or just want to have a chat, please contact Laura by emailing email@example.com.
Student life can be exciting and at times prove challenging. Living and studying in a new country can be difficult for some students, particularly during the early part of the study period. Being a period of great change, it can cause you to feel stressed and overwhelmed at times.
Monash College understands much of this experience and provides a free and confidential Counselling Service for all Monash College students at the Clayton and City Campuses. Counselling can bring relief and help you understand and manage issues in your personal life and relationships, their impact on your studies and/or adjustment to a new culture and university life.
