How GSA represents Graduates

GSA represents graduates at the University of Melbourne through 10 graduate students who are elected annually by the graduate student body to form the GSA Representative Council.

The role of Council is to determine GSA’s position on issues affecting graduate students across University, government and community levels.

All members of GSA Representative Council are also Office Bearers. This means they look after the needs of particular groups of students, such as LGBTIQ+ students, women students and students with families.

GSA holds elections annually. Any enrolled graduate student at the University of Melbourne is eligible to nominate (stand) and vote in GSA elections.
