Parents – secure your childs future

The University of Queensland Foundation Year (UQFY) program prepares international students for entry into the first year of all undergraduate courses at UQ. Students from more than 40 countries are enrolled on this course. Graduates enter all faculties of UQ including Arts, Sciences, Business Economics and Law, Engineering, Architecture and IT, Health Sciences, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences. Graduates of the program also enjoy a high measure of academic success at UQ. Studies undertaken indicate that UQFY alumni have an average GPA higher than that of other international students.

Since the program commenced, UQFY has become one of the most respected foundation programs in Australia with more than 85% of students continuing on to study undergraduate programs at UQ. To date, more than 3,000 undergraduate students who have entered UQ through UQFY.

The University of Queensland (Ranked third in Australia) was ranked as one of the top 50 universities in the world by the QS World University Rankings. The quality of the delivery can be judged by the teaching staff and their experience. Here are some of the teachers on the Foundation programmes:

Dr Peter Munro BSc (UQ, Hons Chem) PhD (UQ, Biochem) – CHEMISTRY CO-ORDINATOR

Peter taught for ten years in primary and lower-secondary Catholic schools in country Queensland. He enjoyed teaching but also wanted to gain a Bachelor of Science. He entered The University of Queensland as a mature age student in 1985 and studied chemistry, mathematics and physics. He enjoyed university so much that he stayed on to complete his PhD in 1994.

He moved to the USA for three years to undertake research work in the computer simulation of living systems. He returned to teaching in 2000 and taught maths and science in various high schools around Brisbane. He started teaching on the Foundation programme in 2008. His varied background gives him a good insight into the different paths open to university students. He enjoyed playing rugby and cricket when he was younger. Now, he is a keen bridge player.

Mr Max King – B.Arts (Mathematics), Teaching Diploma – DIRECTOR OF STUDIES

Teaches Mathematics on the UQ Foundation Year program since its inception in 1998. Mathematics has always been one of his passions and he really enjoys the interaction with students in the classroom. Some people tell him he is crazy because he also enjoys the timetabling part of his job.

It is treated like a mathematical puzzle and he tries to come up with the best possible solution to the problem to ensure that students are able to select a variety of subjects and not miss out because of conflicts.

Mr David Hooper – BAppSc (Biol)-QUT, Grad Dip Teaching (Science)-QUT – BIOLOGY CO-ORDINATOR

 

David has been a science teacher since 1985, with much of this time spent as the Head of Science in various public schools throughout Queensland. He has been the Biology Co-ordinator since 2000 and enjoys interacting with his students and how they politely laugh at all of his jokes!

The field excursion to North Stradbroke Island is a highlight of the course as it allows students to work with teachers outside of class and interact with nature. Most of his spare time is spent with his family, but he also has a long-standing interest in aviation, nature conservation and food! His latest passion is travel, and he has recently visited Hong Kong, Japan and Malaysia.

Mr Theo Skordilis – MEd (Leadership), BEd(Phys/Chem), Dip Teach (Sc/Ma) – PHYSICS CO-ORDINATOR

Theo coordinates and teaches the Physics program and has also taught Chemistry for many years. Being a migrant and of Greek origin, Theo is well aware of the language, social and emotional needs of international students. Theo is a very experienced and innovative teacher having worked in many private colleges since 1985.

    New research shows international students’ level of satisfaction with Australian education is on the rise.

    According to The National Survey of International Students Studying in Australia report,

    • 84% of international students were satisfied or
    • very satisfied with their study experience and 86% with their living experience in Australia.

    “It was also encouraging to find that more than 85% of students were satisfied or very satisfied with the level of support they received on arrival, confirming Australia’s reputation as a country that welcomes international students,” said Minister for Tertiary Education, Senator Chris Evans.

    In the latest survey, conducted from late 2009 to mid 2010, the top four factors influencing tertiary students’ decision to study in Australia were:

    • quality of teaching (94% of respondents);
    • reputation of the qualification from their chosen education institution (93%);
    • personal safety (92%), and;
    • reputation of the institution (91%).

    The overview report is available at www.aei.gov.au

    From 1 July 2010 DIAC require overseas students to obtain OSHC for the proposed duration of their Student visa.

    Where a student will be studying at more than one education provider, the requirement remains that the student must maintain health insurance for the duration of their visa. There cannot be a gap in the OSHC coverage.

    If a student has already obtained OSHC for a 12 month period before 1 July they will not be asked to obtain further insurance. They will be expected to renew their policy when it expires.

    Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is intended to assist international students to meet the costs of medical and hospital care that they may need while in Australia.

    A student visa can be granted up to the maximum duration outlined below:

    Visa duration is 10 months or less – The visa will usually be granted up to one month longer than the duration of the course.

    Visa duration is longer than 10 Months – The visa will usually be granted up to two months longer that the duration of the course.

    Visa duration is longer than 10 Months and finishing at the end of the Australian academic year (October – December) – The visa will usually be granted up to March 15 of the following year.

    For all students submitting applications from July onwards, we will calculate the visa length and issue a statement of fees which reflects an OSHC amount as per the information above.

    The start date for the OSHC will be from the course commencement date

    To assist students who are now preparing to make fees payment and request their CoE’s it is advised that you contact the relevant Education Counsellor to obtain a revised statement showing the correct OSHC fees. Please ensure that this is requested prior to the student preparing their fees payment through TT or Bank Draft.

    In the case where payment is received without the additional OSHC amount, the outstanding fees will be required prior to the CoE being issued

    IEAA help students to get their OSHC free of any additional service charge . Should you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Robert Menzies Building at the Clayton Campus

    Monash University is a public university based in Melbourne, Australia. It is Australia’s largest university with about 55,000 students.

    The University has a total of eight campuses: six in Victoria, Australia (ClaytonCaulfieldBerwickPeninsula,Parkville and Gippsland), one in Malaysia and one in South Africa.[3] The University also has a research and teaching centre in PratoItaly[4] and a graduate research school in MumbaiIndia.[5]

    Monash University is a member of the prestigious “Group of Eight“, a group composed of some of the most research-intensive universities in Australia. It was recently ranked by The Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings at number 45 of the world’s top 200 universities for 2009. It is one of only three post World War II universities in the world’s top 50.[6] With 11 universities in Victoria,[7] Monash attracts 33% of the top 5% of students from Victorian schools.[8][9] It has the largest number of first and total preferences from school leavers in Victoria seeking university places.[10]

    Monash is home to a range of major research facilities, including the Australian Synchrotron, the Monash Science Technology Research and Innovation Precinct (STRIP), the Australian Stem Cell Centre, 100 research centres[11] and 17 co-operative research centres.

    The university is named after the prominent Australian general Sir John Monash. One of his most well known statements is inscribed along a walkway between the Robert Blackwood Hall and Performing Arts Centre at the Clayton campus: Adopt as your fundamental creed that you will equip yourself for life, not solely for your own benefit, but for the benefit of the whole community.

    The University’s motto is Ancora imparo (Italian), meaning ‘I am still learning’,[12] a saying attributed toMichelangelo.

    1. History

    Main article: History of Monash University

    One of the lakes at the University’s foundation campus, Clayton

    1. 4 Early history

    Monash University is a commissioned Victorian university. It was established by an Act of the State Parliament of Victoria in 1958 as a result of the Murray Report which was commissioned in 1957 by the then Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies to establish the second university in the state of Victoria. The university was named after the prominent Australian general Sir John Monash. This was the first time in Australia that a university had been named after a person, rather than a city or state.[13]

    The original campus was in the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Clayton (falling in what is now the City of Monash). The first University Council, led by Monash’s first Chancellor Sir Robert Blackwood, selected SirLouis Matheson, to be the first Vice-Chancellor of Monash University, a position he held until 1976. The University was granted an expansive site of 100 hectares of open land in Clayton.[14]

    From its first intake of 347 students at Clayton on 13 March 1961, the university grew rapidly in size and student numbers so that by 1967, it had enrolled more than 21,000 students since its establishment.[citation needed] In its early years, it offered undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in engineering, medicine, science, arts, economics and politics, education and law. It was a major provider for international student places under the Colombo Plan, which saw the first Asian students enter the Australian education system.

    In its early years of teaching, research and administration, Monash had the advantage of no entrenched traditional practices. This enabled it to adopt modern approaches without resistance from those who preferred the status quo. A modern administrative structure was set up, Australia’s first research centres and scholarships devoted to Indigenous Australians were established, and, thanks to Monash’s entirely new facilities, students in wheelchairs were able to enroll.[citation needed]

    1. 5 1970s onwards

    From the mid-1960s to the early 1970s, Monash became the centre of student radicalism in Australia.[15][16] It was the site of many mass student demonstrations, particularly concerning Australia’s role in Vietnam War and conscription.[17] By the late 1960s, several student organisations, some of which were influenced by or supporters of communism, turned their focus to Vietnam, with numerous blockades and sit-ins.[18]

    In the late 1970s and 1980s, Monash’s most publicised research came through its pioneering of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). Led by Professors Carl Wood andAlan Trounson, the Monash IVF Program achieved the world’s first clinical IVF pregnancy in 1973.[19] In 1980, they delivered the first IVF baby in Australia.[20] This eventually became a massive source of revenue for the University at a time when university funding in Australia was beginning to slow down.

    In the late 1980s, the Dawkins Reforms changed the landscape of higher education in Australia. Under the leadership of Vice-Chancellor Mal Logan, Monash transformed dramatically. In 1988, Monash University had only one campus, Clayton, with around 15, 000 students.[21] Just over a decade later, it had 8 campuses (including 2 overseas), a European research and teaching centre, and more than 50,000 stude
    nts, making it the largest and most internationalised Australian university.[22]

    1. 6 Expansion in the 1990s

    The expansion began in 1990, with a series of mergers between Monash, the Chisholm Institute of Technology, the Gippsland Institute of Advanced Education. In 1991 a merger with the Victorian College of Pharmacy created a new faculty of the University. Monash University’s expansion continued in 1994, with the establishment of the Berwick campus.

    In 1998, the University opened the Malaysia campus, its first overseas campus and the first foreign university in Malaysia. In 2001, Monash South Africa opened its doors in Johannesburg, making Monash the first foreign university in South Africa. The same year, the University secured an 18th Century Tuscan Palace to open a research and teaching centre in Prato, Italy.

    At the same time, Australian universities faced unprecedented demand for international student places, which Monash met on a larger scale than most, to the point that today around 30% of its students are from outside Australia.[23] Today, Monash students come from over 100 different countries, and speak over 90 different languages. The increase in international students, combined with its expansion, meant that Monash’s income skyrocketed throughout the 1990s, and it is now one of Australia’s top 200 exporters.[24]

    1. 7 2000 onwards

    In recent years, the University has been prominent in medical research. A highlight of this came in 2000, when Professor Alan Trounson led the team of scientists which first announced to the world that nerve stem cells could be derived from embryonic stem cells, a discovery which led to a dramatic increase in interest in the potential of stem cells.[25][26] It has also led to Monash being ranked in the top 20 universities in the world for biomedicine.[27]

    On October 21, 2002 Huan Yun “Allen” Xiang shot two people dead and injured five others on the Clayton campus.

    For more details on this topic, see Monash University shooting.

    On 30 May 2008, Monash University celebrated its 50th Anniversary.

    The current Vice-Chancellor and President of Monash University is Professor Edward Byrne AO (since July 2009).

    1. Campuses
    2. 9 Clayton campus

    Howitt Hall at the Clayton campus in Victoria, Australia

    The Clayton campus covers an area over 1.1 km² and is the largest of the Monash campuses. Clayton is the flagship campus for Monash, demanding higher ENTER scores than all the other campuses, with the exception of Parkville. Clayton is home to the faculties of Arts, Business & Economics, Education, Engineering, IT, Law, Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and Science. The Clayton campus has its own suburb and postcode (3800).

    In 2001, the State Government of Victoria decided to build the first Australian synchrotron adjoining the campus. The Australian Synchrotron opened in July 2007 and creates beam light to make it capable to view matter at the molecular level. Monash University contributed $5M towards the $220M cost of the synchrotron as a member of the funding partnership for the initial suite of beamlines.[28]

    The campus is also home to a number of halls of residence, colleges and other on-campus accommodation that house several thousand students. Six halls of residence are located at theClayton campus in Clayton, Victoria. There is an additional private residential college affiliated with the University.

    • Howitt Hall is the tallest Monash residential building, standing 12 stories high, with a good view of the other halls and the university. Howitt Hall is the third oldest hall, and was opened in September 1966. The hall is named after Alfred Howitt, a scholar and prominent figure in early Gippsland.
    • Farrer Hall is divided into two buildings, Commons and Lords, with an annex to Commons called Chastity which is located above the common room. The Hall has more focus on floors, with kitchens, laundries and common rooms shared across them.
    • Richardson Hall (Richo) is the newest of the Halls of Residence at Monash University. Richardson is home to 190 residents. Richardson ‘has’ been known as the ‘International hall’ to residents of other halls, due to the high numbers of international students residing in Richardson.
    • Deakin Hall was the first residence hall established at Monash University in Australia, in September, 1962. [1] The residence hall was named afterAlfred Deakin, Prime Minister from 1903-1910 and father of the Australian Constitution.
    • Roberts Hall is named after Tom Roberts, an Australian artist who was affectionately known as ‘the bulldog’. The mascot of Roberts Hall is a bulldog in recognition of this.
    • The South East Flats is located at the south-eastern corner of the university’s Clayton campus. It is made up of two block of flats|blocks of flats, and the flat sizes range from 2 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms. There are 30 flats in total, designed to accommo
      date 130 students.

    The campus is also adjacent to Mannix College, a residential college affiliated with Monash University.[29]

    • Mannix College is located near the south-western corner of the university’s Clayton campus, adjacent to the Monash Clayton bus interchange. It is made up of two wings of dormitories, Hoevers and Malarkey, each with three levels and approximately 40 students per floor, giving a total student residence of approximately 240. Mannix is the only on-campus residence to provide fully catered board and lodging.
    1. 10 Caulfield campus

    H Building on the Caulfield campus in Victoria, Australia

    The Caulfield campus is Monash University’s second largest campus. Its multifaceted nature is reflected in the range of programs it offers through the faculties of Arts, Art & Design, Business & Economics, Information Technology and Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. A major building program has been announced, to expand teaching facilities, provide student accommodation and redevelop the shopping centre. The Law faculty for Monash University will relocate to the Caulfield campus by the end of 2011.[30]

    1. 11 Other Australian campuses

    One of Monash’s newest, Berwick campus was built on the old Casey airfield in the south-eastern growth corridor of Victoria, Australia. The town of Berwick has experienced an influx of people and development in recent times, which includes the new campus of Monash University. With a presence in the area since 1994, the first Monash Berwick campus building was completed in 1996 and the third building in March 2004. It is situated on a 55-hectare site in the City of Casey, one of the three fastest growing municipalities in Australia
