Another update, especially important for @Bri MT and others. All science advanced degrees + science honours students, so that's Bachelor of Science (Honours), Bachelor of Science Advanced - Global Challenges (Honours) & Bachelor of Science Advanced - Research (Honours) will all start on the 2nd of March and are not postponed. See here again for more updates.

Thank you!

I'm confused by what this means since research students undertake the same units as normal science students and GC students are the same except for our impact through science units of which we only have 1 per semester. Maybe impact through science is starting a week earlier than our other units? Guess I'll find out 

(also I'm in 3 fb groups for Global Challenges + the mass^3 fb group and @Springyboy you were still the first person I heard this from - thanks for keeping us very updated)

That's what it seems like I guess. But yeah no worries @Bri MT, just keep that page open and bookmarked and refresh it a few times a day, as Monash doesn't send out notifications every time it's updated.

Yeah, I wonder how this is going to work out logistically if there is a weird crossover of units/aos/courses.

For example, psychology honours can be taken in 3 different courses (BA, BSc, BPsych), so it would be really weird if Monash don't make these more specific down the line or clarify how it's going to work for these crossover cases.

EDIT: Got in contact with Monash - because Psychology honours is run by MNHS and not the Science faculty, it is not counted as part of the BSc(Hons) exclusion listing. I told them it could be interpreted as conflicting information for psych hons, and they told me it will be updated. Hopefully other cases like this are made explicitly clear too.

VCE | Literature, English, Psychology, Informatics, Further Maths
2017~19 | BA @ Monash ([ExtMaj] Psychology | [Min] Korean studies, Philosophy)

2020~ | BA(Hons) in Psychology @ Monash
For those interested, I'll edit in a broad topic/research theme or something once I make some headway on the project!

Feel free to PM me any questions.

Page was just updated again at 8:15am this morning. All science degrees have now been removed from the list as starting as scheduled, and will all start on the postponed date of the 9th of March.

Thanks but I'm in 4th year now! I am mentoring in PTY3051 though so good to know my dates won't change for that.

Thanks so much for keeping us appraised of all the info, Springyboy!

I know that this is for Clayton, but super curious as to how that'd work at Parkville, given that most of the new cohorts are usually in classes for the majority of the day during the week (usually 4-5 days) lol
(The lack of oweek is the going to screw over Parkville C&S tbh- glad I'm no longer involved in that mess :D )

Wait, is it confirmed that O week is March 17-19. Also, what does that mean to our classes on those 3 days?

I've taken those dates from an email by the MSA. The idea would be that you attend your class as per the timetable and check out the orientation festival when you're not in class

Monash Parkville: Honours orientation is unaffected
Also Monash Parkville, just before: Uh, so, we're reducing all the inductions and orientation from 3 days to 0.5 days. Glhf.

Bit of a yikes :')
(I was due to start my project on the 25th, but looks like I'm starting on the 24th instead I guess lol)

Hopefully it's mostly content that the last cohort didn't find useful that's been cut out?

I mean the library talk was the only real filler thing they had- there's the PPA (Parkville's version of MPA (now MGA)) and Mental Health talks that were probably useful, everything else appeared to be actually useful haha!

The only things that they're keeping atm (and not postponing until god knows when) are the 'meet your coordinators'/allocation of lab access/general faculty tour and OHS safety tour (which is fair enough haha). I believe they'll likely ask me to come in early to do a biosafety session on Friday anyways, but I'm waiting for the faculty to confirm that.

The real kicker is that our cohort have a compulsory seminar to attend anyways on the Friday which would've been day 2 anyways lol.

At least they're providing lunch because we're rocking up for 2.5 hours? :D

Hey so I'm new to the Peninsula campus this year studying physio (I did a short law stint at Clayton campus 2 years ago haha) and because O'Week has been postponed/cancelled I'm wondering if anyone had any information on what Peninsula campus is like i.e. do most people study on campus during breaks or go into town? what are the clubs to join/avoid? are there any sporting clubs to join on campus (e.g. run club?) I'm pretty familiar with Monash Clayton but Peninsula is a whole different ball game
Also pretty new to the Peninsula area (I've been to Frankston beach but that's about it) and have heard that food is limited on campus so if anyone has any good places to grab food/coffee near campus would be v grateful <3

Hey there! I'm a 4th year physio student.
Peninsula campus is lovely, super peaceful and leafy. It'll be a massive change for you coming from Clayton lol. In terms of food, they've recently redeveloped building A which has a new eating area and cafe, and then there's the cafe in building U. Obviously not as much choice as Clayton but definitely sufficient to get coffee from or buy lunch or a snack.

During breaks, most people will study in the library or hang out on the library lawn or anywhere on campus. There's not really much in the way of clubs. If you want to go to physio events you can join MUPS and you'll get discounts on stuff like after exam party tickets and ball tickets and hoodies and that sort of thing. In terms of sporting stuff there's a hockey club but idk much else. There's a big gym though so probably more info around there.

Most people stay on campus in breaks because you have to pay for parking in most spots in Frankston itself and usually you won't have a massive break between classes - the biggest one I've had was 2 hours. There's a cafe and boost juice place at the woolies servo about 500m down the road and some food places in the homemaker centre next to Bunnings but really you might as well save the effort and get stuff on campus.

In terms of parking, there's free unlimited hour street parking on the train station side of Bloom St but that will fill up pretty quickly so you might end up with a bit of a walk in. You can park in other surrounding side streets and walk in but just make sure you don't park in a residential permit only zone because inspectors are fairly regular, especially in the first few weeks of semester.
