M C M C Monash – a connected community As soon as students arrive at Monash College they become members of the wider Monash community. This means that they have the chance to regularly interact with Monash students, lecturers and facilities. Here are just some examples of how Monash College connects its students with Monash University. 8 Graduate connection World-class facilities Even after they make the move into second or third year, our diploma graduates often visit the College to become mentors, run study sessions or to just chat with current students about what to expect at university. Monash University has some of the best facilities in Australia. Being located on Monash’s two largest campuses, our diploma students have access to these amazing world-class facilities during and outside of class. Ready for second year! Guest speakers and university lecturers Finishing your diploma is an exciting time. It’s when you get to take what you have learnt and join your university classmates in second year. You may be on a different campus, be part of larger lectures, have more work and make new friends. Our diploma of arts, business and art and design students participate in various transition activities. They meet faculty staff, tour the university facilities, learn more about their degree and subject choices, and find out about the social events and clubs they can join. Attend first-year lectures and tutorials Monash Clayton students Crystal Li Thong Lim, Carla Massaria and Zitan Liu meet after class. Crystal and Carla are using Monash Clayton bikeshare bikes. This convenient network makes available more than 70 bikes, with included helmets, for students and staff to hire.

Nothing gets you better prepared for university than joining a university lecture! Throughout the trimester, a series of guest speakers from Monash University present to our diploma students. They cover topics on leadership opportunities available to them as a Monash University student, including the Ancora Imparo program, transitioning to life and study as a bachelor student, and additional programs available to them at Monash University, including peer support programs such as English conversation classes. 9
