Graduate Leaders are acknowledged by the Dean of Arts at the formal postgraduate dinner held in October each year.

Career Development and Enhancement Activities

In addition to the career development and enhancement activities offered to all Arts Master by Coursework students, Graduate Leaders participate in a series of workshops available only to them, that have been designed to challenge and inform high performing postgraduate coursework students on how to best leverage their skills and experience in the job market and in the workplace.

Arts Graduate Peer Mentoring Activities

Arts Graduate Peer Mentoring Activities provides Graduate Leaders an opportunity to practice their organisation, communication, inter-personal and inter-cultural skills as a positive role model to graduate program peers who are in their first semester at Monash. Training workshops and informal meeting-up sessions with mentees are organised to assist Graduate Leaders to support the learning of their peers while developing a range of transferable skills applicable to the new world of work.

Leadership and Advocacy Activities

Graduate Leaders are supported to develop and lead events and activities for their discipline cohorts as well as the broader Masters by Coursework cohort, including but not limited to, online panel discussions, O-week activities, and social events. Graduate leaders have an opportunity to participate in self-selected leadership activities within the university, such as assisting faculty staff at graduate expos, on faculty marketing or the faculty alumni strategy.
