University Exchange Programs
Universities: Posted 15-8-15 Deadline - No Deadline
Most universities offer exchange programs, which involve already enrolled students studying for a half or whole year at a partner institution of their own university. Study abroad programs are slightly different, and do not involve studying at a partner institution; this means students sometimes need to contribute extra funds towards their tuition fees. As an alternative to exchange, some universities also offer short study tours, or the option to study at an international campus of their own. Most universities offer various forms of financial assistance to students going on exchange. Below are some links to the international study options offered by a number of universities. Macquarie University: http://students.mq.edu.au/opportunities/student_exchange/ The University of Sydney: http://sydney.edu.au/study/overseas-exchange.html UNSW: https://student.unsw.edu.au/exchange CSU: http://www.csu.edu.au/csuglobal/student-exchange ANU: http://www.anu.edu.au/study/study-options/exchange-at-anu

Teaching courses at uni - message from BOSTES
Career Choice: Posted 14-8-15 Deadline - No Deadline
The Minister for Education recently announced that NSW school leavers entering teaching degrees in 2016 will need to achieve three Band 5 HSC results including in English. The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) has worked closely with vice-chancellors and other staff from all NSW teacher education providers to implement strengthened academic requirements for admission into teaching degrees. Universities have been provided with a number of options for addressing these strengthened entry requirements including strengthened discipline underpinning the early stages of a program as well as a range of pathways into teaching for school leavers who do not achieve the required three Band 5 results including in English.

I write to ask that you advise your careers advisors and relevant members of staff that the simple message to convey to students interested in teaching is that from 2016 there is an expectation that they have achieved at least three Band 5 results including in English in the HSC, but that there are a range of other options and pathways into teaching that are assessed by the BOSTES as being comparable to this standard. Further information on this can be found at the BOSTES website.

Educational Access Schemes (EAS)

To be eligible for EAS consideration your educational performance must have been seriously affected, normally for a period of at least six months during Year 11 and/or 12 or equivalent, due to circumstances beyond your control and choosing.

The value of double degrees
Universities: Posted 14-8-15 Deadline - No Deadline
Year 12 students are encouraged to further increase the value of their university study by undertaking a double degree. Dean of the ANU College of Law, Professor Stephen Bottomley, said that despite the considerable value double degrees provided, many Year 12 students weren’t clear about what studying a double degree involved or the benefits of doing so. “Undertaking a double degree doesn’t mean you do twice the workload you would in a single degree. Instead, a double degree brings together courses from two degrees to create a single program of study, but only adds a year to the time you spend at university.” In addition to allowing students to build their knowledge across separate disciplines, it can broaden your employment options if there are not many jobs in one area of your double degree. It is very valuable to a student who cannot choose between two areas which interest them.
