3.6 Study away
Students may be permitted in certain circumstances to pursue a part of their research at institutions or locations outside their approved campus location (internal students) or study site (external students). In such cases, the Graduate Research Committee will need to be satisfied that the period of study away is an integral and essential part of the research, that adequate arrangements for supervision are in place and that the facilities available are adequate for the conduct of the research to be undertaken.
Application procedures for study away are discussed in Section 4.3 of this handbook. Students who fail to advise the University of a return from a period of approved study away via the relevant form may have their enrolment terminated. Refer to Section 2 of the Graduate Research Termination Procedures and the current Monash University (Academic Board) Regulations.
