t x e n e h t o t in g in p Step stage of your life

ITI OPPORTUN OM FREED ATION INSPIR VISION FUTURE

How do I choose my subjects for Years 11 and 12? When you finish Year 12, the world is at your feet. You may choose to: • take time off and travel the world • get a full-time job • start an apprenticeship • go to uni or TAFE and study for your dream career. No matter which option you choose, university can still be part of the next stage of your life! If you decide to take a gap year to travel or work, you can enrol in a university degree but not start studying until six, 12, 18 or even 24 months later just by deferring your offer. For some courses, you have the option of studying part-time so you can also work, or try our Single Subject Study option. If you are considering going to university straight after completing your Year 12 studies, there are a few things to consider to help get into the course you want to study.

It is really important that you choose subjects you like and feel you will do well in. It is helpful if you will use those subjects in the future in your working life or study, however this is not always necessary. The best way to give yourself the most options is by doing well at the HSC (or equivalent) and gaining a higher ATAR.

What are prerequisite subjects? Some university courses require you to complete certain subjects in Years 11 and 12 that relate to the course content, so you will have the background knowledge needed to understand the course. These required subjects are called prerequisite subjects, but when you apply to study at CSU, there are no prerequisite subjects.

What is assumed knowledge? Some university courses assume you have a level of prior knowledge of a topic. For example, some science courses expect you to have studied biology, chemistry or physics in Years 11 and 12, while all education courses assume a certain level of English, and some courses may expect mathematics at a higher level.

How will I get into a course? NSW and interstate school leavers are normally offered a place in a university course based on their ATAR or interstate equivalent. You may also be admitted on the basis of a strong performance in subjects relevant to your course preferences. Some courses have other selection processes such as interviews, auditions, submission of portfolios and/or completion of questionnaires in addition to or supplementing standard University entry requirements. Some CSU study areas that have these include: • Communication and Creative Industries (e.g. Journalism and Acting) • Bachelor of Dental Science • Bachelor of Information Technology (Business Services) - but this has a great scholarship! • Bachelor of Veterinary Biology / Bachelor of Veterinary Science For information on the admission requirements for the course you may be interested in, check its online course brochure.

What if I’m not sure what I want to do? While selecting subjects for Years 11 and 12 can be an important step to university, there’s no need to worry if you don’t know what you want to do yet, or if you change your mind about your career direction, because: • some CSU degrees have similar subjects in the first year, which allows students to commence a course and, if they wish to change, apply to another course after the first year, usually with credit for some subjects completed • CSU offers several general studies courses, including the Bachelor of Business Studies, Bachelor of Educational Studies, Bachelor of General Studies (Science) and the Bachelor of Liberal Studies (Arts), that allow you to construct a program of study to suit your own needs, giving you heaps of flexibility • students can also study one subject at a time through CSU’s Single Subject Study program, which is a great way to sample university study before commencing your degree.

I’m not sure I can handle university study CSU offers programs to help improve your study skills before you commence your degree: • our STUDY LINK program offers introductory short courses in many different subjects that you can complete before you start your university studies, or during your course • the Darrambal program offers Indigenous students the opportunity to attend university-style classes, to learn skills needed for success at university, and to meet lecturers and other staff in a supportive environment • CSU’s Pathway Program, the Diploma of General Studies, provides an option for recent school leavers who are interested in studying at CSU but do not meet the entry criteria or who require further preparation • CSU and TAFE offer a range of articulated and integrated programs.

Life as a uni student is full of opportunities. Suddenly you get a taste of that independence you always wanted. Whether you decide to share a house with friends, live on campus or stay / live at home, there are many exciting ways to meet new people, take on new interests and have fun while studying for your dream career.

i? n u t a e ik l it ’s t a h W Living at CSU

Clubs and societies

It’s a big step to move out of home, but CSU offers a range of affordable accommodation options on our regional campuses at Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange and Wagga Wagga, with great student support on campus.

Our campuses are ideally located, enabling access to a range of activities in the regions. On campus, you can join one of CSU’s sporting or recreational clubs, or consider one of our social, religious, cultural or study clubs. You could even be a presenter on our very own university radio station at Bathurst Campus or represent CSU at the University Games. Whatever your choice, it’s a great way to get involved in uni life.

Living on or near campus makes perfect sense. It reduces travel time to lectures and allows easy access to on campus sporting and entertainment venues. Approximately half of the beds available on each campus are allocated to first-year students. Assistance can also be provided if you would prefer to live off campus in one of our campus cities. You’ll develop friendships that will last a lifetime, with students from a variety of backgrounds enrolled in a diverse range of courses. When you come to O Week you’ll find out so much more about uni life and meet lots of new students.

Give yourself the best chance... Work experience

Giving back to the community

Work experience is a great way to be a step ahead of the rest when applying for courses that have a high ATAR, or ask you to submit a portfolio or attend an interview, because it demonstrates your enthusiasm and commitment to that area of study.

Giving back to the community is important for your growth as an individual as it demonstrates how rewarding giving to others can be, for both those on the receiving end and for those contributing their services. CSU recognises these benefits and consequently places great value on community service when awarding scholarships to students.

Work experience allows you to participate in the day-to-day activities of a profession that interests you. It is the perfect way to get a taste of a particular career area before you commit to studying it at university. The key to making the most of work experience opportunities is to work in different industries so you can compare career areas and find out which one best suits your interests.

Portfolio If the course you are interested in studying asks you to submit a portfolio during the application process, you should start collecting examples of your work now and keep adding to them during the final years of schooling. If you have a wide range of examples by the time you finish school, you are in a better position to refine your portfolio. Work completed while on work experience should also be included in your portfolio.

Have you ever participated in the Red Shield Appeal or other voluntary activity? Perhaps you are a member of the Girls’ Brigade or Scouts, or participated in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award? If so, you are doing your bit to give back to the community. There are so many different ways in which you can serve your community, whether it be picking up rubbish on Clean Up Australia Day, participating in Relay For Life, or contributing articles to your local newspaper. CSU is also committed to serving its regional communities. Students conduct practical placements in local hospitals, newsrooms, schools and small businesses, gaining the skills they need to enter the workforce while at the same time serving the community in which they are studying.

WELL, SAY YOU WANT TO STUDY SCIENCE. IT WOULD BE GOOD IF YOU HAVE DONE BIOLOGY OR CHEMISTRY.

Pathways to CSU

Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) The Australian Sports Commission, the Australian Institute of Sport and the NSW Institute of Sport recognise CSU as a member of the Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) network.

Early entry program (PREP)

At CSU we believe in giving students every opportunity to succeed. CSU PLUS brings together a range of programs that can boost your chances of being granted admission to your chosen CSU degree. You may be eligible for special consideration based on your circumstances during high school, be allocated bonus points for living in a regional area, or be able to apply through special programs like the early entry program (PREP) or Darrambal program for Indigenous students. For more information, visit: www.csu.edu.au/csuplus

CREDIT PACKAGES SINGLE SUBJECT STUDY

PREP is an early entry scheme designed to attract academically talented students from high schools and TAFEs in NSW, ACT and non metropolitan areas in Victoria. A successful PREP application guarantees selected students an offer to their nominated course at CSU, prior to the mainstream selection system, which is based on the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). Applications are submitted through the Universities Admission Centre (UAC). Note: there are some courses to which PREP does not apply.

Elite athletes or performers who have represented at national level, and whose training or competitive commitments have significantly affected their preparation for application to university, should consider applying for Special Consideration for Admission in the elite athlete category. For more information, visit: www.csu.edu.au/special-consideration

HSC Board Endorsed Study

Darrambal

Opportunities exist for you to get your foot in the door at university before you have even finished high school. CSU offers HSC Board Endorsed study in:

Darrambal is an innovative skills assessment program designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and administered by CSU’s Indigenous Student Services. In the program, the skills and abilities you already possess and your potential to succeed in your preferred course of study will be assessed. If you have to travel away from home, you may also be eligible for assistance with the cost of your travel, meals, and accommodation.

• Early Childhood • Introduction to Rural Management These programs enable students to study components of a degree while still in high school, and follow a pathway to university study. Students who successfully complete one of these units may receive credit if they go on to enrol in a relevant bachelor degree at CSU. For more information, talk to your school.

?

Interested in TAFE study first

For more information, visit: www.csu.edu.au/darrambal For these and other pathways to CSU, including recognition of prior learning, credit packages, Single Subject Study or study through CSU Training or TAFE, ask for our Pathways to CSU brochure online at: www.csu.edu.au/about/publications

If you’re interested in attending TAFE after you finish school, university could still be an option down the track. Many TAFE courses provide a pathway to CSU degrees by allowing credit for previous TAFE study, or you can complete an integrated program where you study through both TAFE and CSU. Currently articulated and integrated programs are available across a range of fields including Accounting, Agricultural Business Management, Business, Business Studies, Education, Graphic Design, Health and Rehabilitation Science, Hotel Management, Information Technology, Outdoor Recreation and Ecotourism, and Social Work.

CSUGLOBAL Study overseas Study at university can offer many opportunities, and travel is just one of them. Studying overseas on a one or two session exchange program, going on study tours or an international internship, undertaking an overseas gap program, or doing volunteer work are just some of the international experiences you could embrace while at CSU.

CSU offers special scholarships for TAFE students too.

As a CSU student, if you study part of your degree overseas, CSU may help pay for the experience. You may be able to apply for an OS-HELP loan to help offset the expenses of travel preparations, or travel grants are available through CSU, the Australian government and other scholarship providers for students wishing to undertake these amazing educational experiences.

Find out more at: www.csu.edu.au/tafe

Some of the countries with which CSU has international links for students include Canada, China, England, France, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, the Republic of South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA, and the list is always growing. For more information, visit: www.csu.edu.au/csuglobal

Help with costs

Costs With independence comes responsibility, especially the need to organise your cash flow. But by being prepared for the costs of university, you should still be able to afford a good time. When preparing for university life, in addition to course fees and the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) be aware of likely costs such as living expenses, accommodation, books, groceries, meals, transport and entertainment, and plan accordingly. Our students find that the cost of living is lower in a regional centre compared to metropolitan locations, so the overall cost of completing a degree at CSU is usually less than most other universities in Australia.

Government allowances are available to eligible students to help make the financial cost of study more manageable. HECS-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible Commonwealth supported students to pay their student contribution. The government pays your uni fees upfront then, when you start working, you begin to repay your HECS-HELP loan from your pay through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Information is available from the ATO.

Catered accommodation includes breakfast and dinner in the dining halls. Self-catered and off campus accommodation do not include any meals, although food is available for purchase on campus at reasonable prices.

Youth Allowance provides assistance for young people who are studying full-time. It allows young people to stay on the one payment as they move between work, study and training.

Below are some costs to consider. Textbooks are additional to these estimates, however may often be purchased second-hand.

Frequently asked questions... How will I make friends at uni?

Many CSU students have relocated for study and are looking to make new friends. Extra-curricular activities offered by CSU provide opportunities to establish networks away from the classroom, helping to form the friendships you will cherish for life.

A full-time course requires attendance at lectures and tutorials, forum participation and study that can total around 35 hours per week – equivalent to a full-time job. You may not have to attend classes every day, but should do some review, class preparation or assignment work most days to ensure you do well.

What if I don’t like the course I’ve chosen?

It’s all about flexibility and support at CSU. A number of courses have similar subjects in their first year, so you may be able to apply to change to another course at the end of the year. There are cut-off dates for changes, so please ask early.

CSU’s Sci-FYE program will give you all the support you need to make your first year experience a positive one. You’ll have access to a range of resources to help with your first assignments, as well as advice from current students.

When you’re at uni, you are responsible for ensuring you hand in your assignments on time, however CSU offers great student support and assistance with library resources. You can always ask your lecturers, and you can set up a student group to discuss issues using the forums online.

s m r e t y t i s r e v i n U Assumed knowledge – refers to subjects the University recommends you complete prior to starting the course.

ATAR – Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank. The figure is used by UAC / VTAC to calculate the entrance ranking for on campus courses. Bachelor degree – the award a student gains when they have completed studies in an undergraduate course, which is usually completed in three or four years of full-time study. Commonwealth supported place (CSP) – a student’s enrolment in a university degree for which the Commonwealth government makes a contribution towards the cost of that student’s education. Double degree – a student can enhance their career opportunities by completing a double degree. This integrates studies in two complementary areas resulting in the award of two degrees, usually after four years of study. Defer – to delay starting your course. Deferring your offer of a place in a course means you would like to start your course in six, 12, 18 or 24 months. Deferment ensures you are guaranteed your place in your selected course, but allows you some ‘breathing space’ between the demands of the HSC and starting a new life at university. Faculty – a department within a university devoted to a particular area of study. At CSU we have the faculties of Arts, Business, Education and Science. HECS-HELP – a loan scheme that assists eligible Commonwealth supported students to pay their student contribution. You may pay your student contribution upfront to CSU and receive a 10% discount*, or defer payment through the Australian taxation system via a HECS-HELP loan. *as at time of printing, subject to legislation.

22 CHOOSE YOUR CAREER

Honours – some four-year Bachelor degrees integrate a year of Honours study, offering a pass stream or Honours stream in the final year of the course. The Honours year allows students to focus on an area that interests them, and this may be helpful with career prospects on completion. Some three-year courses offer a separate year of Honours study in which you can enrol when you finish your degree. Lecture – a period of teaching given by a lecturer to a large group of students. Major study – an area within a course that allows in-depth study in a particular field. A major usually consists of eight related subjects. More than one major may be allowed in a course. Minor study – a grouping of between four and seven subjects within a course, allowing students to focus on a particular field. Prerequisite – a set of conditions (usually completion of a subject) that must be met by a student before enrolment in a particular subject is permitted. Prospective Student Adviser (PSA) – CSU has several PSAs who are available to discuss CSU course options with prospective students.

SSAF – Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) provides universities with the means to maintain and enhance services and amenities that support a wide range of student needs. Tutorial – a period of teaching given to a small group of students, involving discussion and participation. UAC – Universities Admissions Centre (NSW and ACT) Pty Ltd. All NSW and ACT students who wish to apply for full-time on campus courses must apply online through UAC or VTAC. Undergraduate – a person studying at university for a first level degree, e.g. at bachelor level. VTAC – Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre. Students doing Year 12 in Victoria who want to study at CSU in Albury-Wodonga or through Holmesglen Institute of TAFE can apply through VTAC. Workplace learning – practical training in a working environment, such as internships or practicums, similar to work experience. Many CSU degrees incorporate this as part of your hands-on learning.

When you are looking into university study, you might come across some terms you are unfamiliar with. This list may help you understand what is being talked about.
