Top 10 tips on choosing the right uni or course
Universities: Posted 6-8-07 Deadline - No Deadline
Tom Betts from Bond University writes: Top Ten Tips for Finding the Right University & Course for You: 1. Picture yourself in 5 years. Where do you want to be working? What do you want to be doing all day? With and for whom do you want to do this work? And where in the world? You donít have to have all the answers, but only you can try to find them. 2. Talk to your careers advisor and get their advice. He or she is experienced and trained to help you. They know what you are going through and can tell you how best to arrange your preferences when you apply. 3. Ask the universities about their class sizes- how big are their lectures and tutorial classes?4. Talk to the universities you are considering and find out the job prospects for graduates of the course you are interested in Ė what are their graduate employment rates and average starting salaries? 5. Talk to your family. Understand that they mainly want you to be happy and secure. Itís your job to let them know what is important to you. 6. Talk to students or graduates of the universities you are considering, especially those who are enrolled in the degree you are interested in. Ask them about their experience and what advice they have for you. 7. Be a Ďspy for a dayí; that is, go to the universities that you are considering on a normal teaching day and get a feel for campus life. 8. Talk to the department you want to study in. Ask them about career paths and opportunities for relevant work experience. If they donít seem very helpful, steer clear of that uni. 9. Ask permission to sit in on classes, especially smaller tutorials. Is the experience stimulating, or are the students bored? 10. Be brave and aim high. You donít have to get it right the first time. There will always be a way to realise your ambition. If students or parents would like any further advice regarding future career options or guidance on how to work through the university application process, Tom is happy to help. Contact Tom Betts on (07) 5595 4081.

The University of Wollongong - Bachelor of Journal
Universities: Posted 30-7-07 Deadline - No Deadline
The University of Wollongong now has a fully equipped newsroom to provide hands-on skills for students in the new Bachelor of Journalism program: Forty students are enrolled in the new course, run by the School of Journalism and Creative Writing. UOW has been teaching journalism since 1990 when it opened a Graduate School of Journalism offering a Master of Journalism degree. This was followed by a Bachelor of Communications and Media Studies, where students were able to study a small number of journalism subjects. However, with the introduction of the Bachelor of Journalism degree, the suite of subjects has been broadened and refocused to give the students more hands-on skills. The newsroom is integral to the course, and each year the undergraduate students will spend at least one full day a week working there. Depending on their year, they will be writing stories, sub-editing or involved in layout and design.
