Monash University transferred its Gippsland campus to be part of Federation University Australia on 1 January 2014. Monash ceased making offers to new students, and has made arrangements with FedUni for teaching its continuing students. One Monash course will continue to admit Monash students at Gippsland, and that is the medicine course MBBS.
Monash University has undertaken to maintain quality and experiences for its students at the campus. All current students can continue as Monash students until their course is complete, subject to normal Monash policies, and Monash faculties remain responsible for academic oversight. Monash units are distinguished from FedUni units through their codes but have the same name.
Campus Service Council
The Monash Gippsland Campus Service Council (GCSC) is a key forum for Monash to consult with its students. The Council is formally constituted in University Statute 2.7 (pdf 147kb), and includes democratically elected student representatives and representatives from major student organisations.
The Council provides a forum for discussion on matters affecting the campus; and for student, staff, alumni and community input into a broad range of university activities.
Student representatives on the Council are responsible for allowing comment on funding priorities by students and student associations and organisations. They include representatives of Gippsland Association of Postgraduate Students (GAPS), International Students Association (ISA), Monash Postgraduate Association (MPA) and Monash University Gippsland Student Union (MUGSU), comprising undergraduates, postgraduates, an off-campus learning student, and an international student.
Financial support for student services
Monash is continuing to support MUGSU, the Gippsland Student Union, under a funding agreement that provides MUGSU with SSAF payments made by Monash students at Gippsland and with oversight exercised by the Campus Service Council.
