New Zealand Students' Association, Monash University (MUNZSA)



Kia ora! The Monash University New Zealand Students’Association is a new club, officially launching in 2018. After hearing that New Zealand students will be facing further financial hardship in Australia following the 2017 Federal Budget, we decided that New Zealanders on campus needed representation and a club to advocate for their needs. This is a club for New Zealanders on campus to meet and get to know each other, to support New Zealanders who have moved here to study with settling in at uni, and to celebrate the culture of Aotearoa through the events we run.

2018 Inaugural Committee:

Sophia McNamara (President)
