HDR Social Lunch | Peninsula

Join our regular gatherings for HDR  students to connect, compare notes and network.

Are you a PhD or Masters by Research student at Monash? That means you are a “HDR student” and you should definitely join one of our regular social gatherings that are just for you and your kind!

These socials are a great opportunity to meet people going through the same research journey as you, exchange ideas and network with students from all different faculties and disciplines.

The MGA will provide all students who attend with a voucher worth $8.00 to put towards their lunch at the Upper Deck Cafe.
