Study Buddy: Admin Volunteer

Monash Student Association (MSA) Study Buddy 2021 Program is an initiative created to match like-minded students into unit-specific study groups. Since last year, we made a huge leap in expanding to 14 new faculties and we hope to continue reaching out to more students. To achieve this, we need dedicated volunteers like you to join us!

As Study Buddy volunteers, you will help students form new friendships and improve their learning experience. Your main responsibilities are to promote the program at key MSA events and through online marketing and liaising with fellow students to match students into study groups. The study group application is open to students before each semester begins for the matching process to occur throughout the semester, up until week 7.

At the end of the program, volunteers can receive a reference letter for recognition of their involvement.

We look forward to you joining us! If you have any questions regarding MSA’s Study Buddy program, it can be directed to: msa-studybuddy@monash.edu
