The Parkville admin gods have given us the class timetable for all the 2019 sem1 formulation science subjects early (by about 1.5 months) <3
Looks like I'll be facing a mostly 3-4 day week, most of which are labs :)

The shuttle bus seems equally busy atm as it is during semester, which I've found a bit surprising.

There's still summer semester units running now. Also, today is exam viewing day for a lot of people (me included), so people are getting in early for that.

What's exam viewing day?

The BusEco faculty has a standardised exam viewing procedure, where you just fill out a form online and you can have up to 3.5hrs to view your exam if you need it. This semester they gave you a week to fill out the form which was generous, as in the past you've had like 48hrs which was tight to fill everything out. It makes it easier to see if you think that they've marked your exam wrong, or if your mark is lower than expected.

So today and tomorrow are the exam viewing days, where you've got between 3 and 6:30pm in H4 to have a look at your exams if you filled out the form when it was open.

Hey all,

I'm about to pick my hall for the Monash Clayton Urban Community, and not sure of which one to choose (out of Campbell, Turner, Logan and Holman). I know they are all very much the same, but if anyone has some small details or advice on which hall to choose that would be great!

Didn't want to double-post on the new student thread, however aMigo- Monash's rather new orientation event/connect-with-others-from-your-campus/faculty/course social media platform designed to aid first years into the first few weeks of uni life goes live to students on Monday, and from what I've seen with my involvement with it, a lot of work has gone into it. :)

As I've mentioned before, I'm struggling to enrol, so how is my timetabling going to work if I haven't enrolled by then?

You'll still be able to allocate yourself into classes when it reopens (next week), but Allocate+ will be in adjust mode (rather than preference mode), meaning class registrations are updated live (i.e. first come first serve). Anyone who has selected their preferences before the closing date will already be allocated to a class once Allocate+ reopens again (everyone else will be able to select from the remaining spots). Also, it's probably worth noting that if a certain class is full, it's not permanent - people move around, so check back regularly if you want a certain class time :) You'll also be able to request swaps at this time.

If I only wanted to check out the Clayton campus and the Halls Of Residence, would I be better off going to an open day or doing a guided tour??? Also it's my understanding that the Halls Of Residence are a 10-15 minute walk away from the campus centre, do Monash offer any transport services around the campus??

There are tours provided on open day and  there's a free sharebike system around campus but the vast majority of people just walk everywhere


hope this helps :)

If you're anxious about your timetable or want to double check your preferences before allocate+ opens this morning, I've found a way to get your timetable early via Monash stalker space. All you need to do is add your 2019 timetable to your google calendar via this link, and that should give you what you need. It seems to be working for me, as it shows that I don't have all of my first preferences. Give it a shot and see if it works for you.

Unit guides for 2019 units are slowly being released.

For first years - it is a great way to have a look at what sort of assessments you will be having during the semester and a general overview on what you will be learning.

Just had a Moodle pop up for a unit but the new-look Moodle makes it really hard to navigate it. :')
Also looks like my faculty is fully implementing the whole "discovery-explore-apply-close the loop" learning style that's only been for the pharmacy kids previously. I've had a look at some of the slides that I could find and I'm already not a fan of the style, but we'll see 😅
