PATHWAYS TO DEAKIN If you do not meet the admission requirements for a Deakin course, WE HAVE an alternative entry pathway FOR YOU.

Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology (MIBT)

Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology (MIBT) provides an excellent pathway to Deakin for students who do not meet the admission requirements for Deakin University’s courses, or who need to bridge the gap between previous study and university. Students who don’t meet admission requirements for Deakin University may be offered a place at MIBT. MIBT offers a Certificate IV in University Foundation Studies which is equivalent to Year 12, and university-level diplomas in commerce, computing, engineering, health sciences, management, media and communication, and science. On completion of the certificate, students can transfer to an MIBT diploma course or apply for entry into the first year of selected Deakin University bachelor degrees. MIBT diplomas are equivalent to the first year of a Deakin University undergraduate degree and provide entry into second year of the relevant Deakin University bachelor degree. Located on Deakin’s Melbourne Campus at Burwood and Geelong Campus at Waurn Ponds students have full access to all campus facilities and services.

OTHER PATHWAYS

A range of other pathways are available to students who do not meet the academic entry requirements for a Deakin course. These pathways enable you to gain advanced standing (credit transfer) at Deakin, reducing the amount of time you will need to finish your Deakin course. If you have completed other studies from a recognised postsecondary institution (such as a TAFE institution in Australia or an overseas university), you will most likely be granted advanced standing (credit transfer) when you enrol in a course at Deakin. In most cases this will reduce the number of units and time required to complete your Deakin qualification. Note: Where appropriate, you should check with the relevant professional body to ensure that advanced standing (credit transfer) towards your degree will not prevent you from being accepted into its membership.

Pathways in Australia

Deakin has formal pathway programs and credit arrangements with its partner TAFE institutions in Australia: Box Hill Institute of TAFE; Holmesglen Institute of TAFE close to Deakin’s Melbourne Campus at Burwood; Gordon Institute of TAFE, close to Deakin’s Geelong Campuses at Waterfront and Waurn Ponds; and South West Institute of TAFE near Deakin’s Warrnambool Campus. A range of further pathway programs also exist with other TAFE institutions. For more information about TAFE pathways into Deakin, please visit www.deakin.edu.au/ future-students/tafe-students.


Examples of these pathways include:

» Diploma of Commerce (degree stream) (Holmesglen Institute of TAFE) to Bachelor of Commerce » Advanced Diploma of Electronics Engineering (Gordon Institute of TAFE) to Bachelor of Engineering »  Diploma of Business (Chisholm Institute of TAFE) to Bachelor of Commerce For further information, please see the websites of our partner TAFE institutions in Australia: Box Hill Institute of TAFE www.bhtafe.edu.au/international Holmesglen Institute of TAFE www.international.holmesglen. vic.edu.au Gordon Institute of TAFE www.international.gordontafe. edu.au South West Institute of TAFE www.swtafe.vic.edu.au/ international

Concurrent programs

While studying at Deakin you may also study with a partner TAFE institution to gain a qualification not otherwise available to Deakin students. This can be a cost effective way of gaining two qualifications that increase your knowledge base and opportunities for employment. Examples of these include: » Advanced Diploma of Tourism Management (Box Hill Institute of TAFE) studied concurrently with Bachelor of Management – Melbourne Campus at Burwood » Associate Degree in Commerce (Box Hill Institute of TAFE) to Bachelor of Commerce

Pathways overseas

Deakin has approved a wide range of advanced standing (credit transfer) for prior studies at institutions outside Australia in countries such as China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore and Sri Lanka. Many applicants to Deakin choose to have their previous studies assessed for advanced standing into their Deakin course.

Advanced Standing (Credit Transfer)

For more information on these and other approved pathways, please visit the University’s advanced standing database at www.deakin.edu.au/courses/ advancedstanding.php. This database contains detailed information on the formal determinations of advanced standing which have been approved. Even if your course is not listed, you can apply for an assessment of advanced standing when you submit your application to Deakin. If you wish to be considered for advanced standing, this should be indicated in the appropriate section on your application form. You will need to forward a full academic record (a complete transcript of results and subject outlines), which has been certified/ notarised by the institution which awarded the qualification or a certified photocopy of original transcripts. Please do not send original documents as they will not be returned. If you are eligible, your Offer Letter will then contain information about your advanced standing. Your advanced standing is formally approved prior to your enrolment at Deakin during the International Registration and Enrolment program, when you will need to present original documents.

For Xuan, like many international students, travelling overseas for the first time was a big challenge. “It was a complex feeling; excitement mixed with dread,” he says. The student support staff helped allay any fears in the very first few days. “During the orientation week, they told us everything we needed to know about studying and living in Australia; from finding accommodation to how to catch public transport,” he says. Xuan feels that one week suddenly gave him all the confidence he needed to be in total control of his academic career in Australia. Now, well into his second year studies at Deakin, Xuan says the Waterfront Campus is the most inspiring of places. “The library, which has a spectacular view of the ocean, is the place to delve into the intricacies of the history and philosophy of architecture, graphic and coded communication, and computer-aided modelling,” he says. He is enthused by the approachable nature of his lecturers. “By far they are a group of very patient teachers who would help students in every possible way to get ahead, and for international students especially, improve their language skills,” he says. Xuan is also pleased with the courses’ flexibility and the scope for innovation that comes with it. “My course work and assignments are more experiential than predetermined,” he says. “All I have to do is support my argument convincingly — I love this approach to studies.”

To give himself an edge in the graduate market, Rick Paolini negotiated a business internship in a para-planning role with Banks Group Financial Planning. “Not only did it give me the hands-on experience in the financial planning business but it gave me a ‘foot inside the door’ and the opportunity to secure a full time position with the firm. “For me, this was the first real taste of working in a big firm where deadlines are crucial and time is money,” he says. Managing pressure and dealing with competing deadlines was a bit daunting initially. “My lecturers at Deakin stressed job-readiness, especially owing to the nature of the finance industry, and said that the best way to be jobready is to do an internship,” he said. The internship opportunity opened up tangible career options. While interviewing for jobs, Rick discovered prospective employers were willing to take him on as an intern with the intention of employing him full time till he proved himself. “Internships are great opportunities and I would highly recommend them to anyone as part of their degree, as it gives that hands-on experience that employers are after.”

EDUCATION

DEAKIN OFFERS A VARIETY OF TEACHING DEGREES: GRADUATE OR UNDERGRADUATE ENTRY PRE‑SERVICE DEGREES WHICH PREPARE YOU FOR TEACHING; OR POST-INITIAL DEGREES WHICH UPGRADE EXISTING TEACHING QUALIFICATIONS.

Deakin teaching degrees provide excellence in teacher education and a pathway to a creative, flexible and rewarding career in teaching and many other fields. In order to comply with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) regulations, all teaching students are required to hold a current Working With Children Check (WWCC) before being allowed to undertake school experience placements in any school in Victoria. You apply for the WWCC on forms provided by the School of Education at enrolment and return the documentation required by the School by the dates specified. Because the WWCC is monitored on an ongoing basis, you are required to nominate the Professional Experience Office as the ‘employer’ as part of the application process. All teaching courses have additional admission requirements: International students must have an IELTS score of at least 7, with no individual band score less than 7. Graduates of an accredited teaching course should note that teacher registration is required in Victoria and is administered by the Victorian Institute of Teaching under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic.). Prospective students should acquaint themselves with the requirements for registration in Victoria or in any other relevant location. These requirements include the ability to satisfy the Standards for Graduating Students (available at: vit.vic.edu.au).

Penny Valk Bachelor Contemporary Arts*, graduated 2006, Currently studying: Bachelor of Teaching Country of origin: Australia

Deakin University performing arts staff are ‘phenomenal’, says Penny Valk. Having already completed the Bachelor of Contemporary Arts at Deakin in 2006, Penny is excited that she will soon graduate as a teacher with a talent for drama. By her own admission, Penny says she went into the contemporary arts degree with a fairly narrow view of drama. But that did not last long. “The lecturers showed me what drama could do and gave me a much broader understanding of drama and theatre,” she says. In 2007, Penny went straight from her contemporary arts course into Deakin’s Bachelor of Teaching, which will equip her for a career in both primary and secondary schools. “It’s fantastic,” she says. “Education is such an individualised area. I can prepare a unit of work and have the freedom to do it on anything I want, so I get to further my creativity.” Penny also appreciates the practical component of her course which has seen her complete 90 days of experience in schools, and the Global Experience Program that allowed her to gain an additional 15 days teaching experience in Canada. Penny is prepared to teach Secondary drama and all areas in Primary and Middle Years. Long term, she plans to add a masters to her qualifications and has her eye on a leading teacher or assistant principal role. But for now, she says, “I just want to get out and teach.” * now Bachelor of Creative Arts

Course code: H330

The social work course at Deakin is committed to the principles of social justice and human rights, and seeks to attract students who are interested in redressing social inequality and discrimination, whether class, race, culture, gender or disability based.

“Professional placements were probably one of the best things Deakin did for us. The lecturers are well connected in the field - they either are, or were, practising occupational therapists - and the gradual build up in practical work from first to third year helped me to get to know the profession before going out into it. The combination of fieldwork and textbook-based theory also means it caters for differences in learning styles. This helps now because I really feel I have the tools to do my job. I’m meeting people with disabilities, hearing impairments etc., so I need things like good communication skills, to be effective at work.”

This course is accredited with the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW). AASW accreditation states that the Deakin social work program values ‘critically reflective practice,’ setting it apart from other social work programs in Australia. Field placements incorporated in the course are required for professional accreditation with the AASW. Social work placements are designed to be diverse and challenging and allow you to link theory with practice within the broader community. You will be required to undertake two placements, one of which will be a rural placement. It is also possible to undertake a placement overseas. On placement you will develop a clear understanding of the knowledge, skills and values of a workplace. You will be required to complete no less than 980 hours on placement throughout your four-year degree. An honours stream is available for selected final year students.

Gathish NAJIRA Gunaratne Bachelor OF Information Technology Country of origin: Sri Lanka

For Gathish, Deakin University’s student resources were most impressive. “From libraries with extensive collections of books to downloadable video–streaming of lectures, there are resources to suit every student,” he says. Gathish, who majored in Computer Science and Software Development, is also very happy with the teaching staff who, he feels, “played a variety of roles including those of a mentor and a guide. You could just walk up to them for help.” Life at Deakin raised Gathish’s confidence. Having to prepare for and make presentations, and work in groups has given Gathish lots of opportunities to develop as an individual, cope on his own and make him job-ready. “I am ready to enter the workforce,” he says. Deakin University also provided a relaxed atmosphere and various social forums to help students, especially international students, feel at home, he says. “I’ve made friends with people from different backgrounds and now I know someone from every continent on the globe.” About being able to appreciate and understand other cultures, he feels, “It’s like getting a double degree at Deakin without having to study for it!”

You will be exposed to handson computer games design and development in a dynamic studio learning environment.

Cameron Hart feels fortunate to be among the first group of students to study at Deakin University’s new Graduate Medical School. “It is a privilege being in the first lot through,” he says. “We have great new facilities and the staff treat us more like colleagues than students.” After always wanting to do something in the medical field, Cameron says his first course at Deakin strengthened his desire to become a doctor. “Since I was studying biomedical science I decided I really wanted to do medicine.” Although he changed Campuses moving from Burwood back to his home town of Geelong, staying with Deakin was a big advantage, he says. “A lot of people in the course had to adjust to a different style of learning but it was a definite advantage going from Deakin to Deakin.” Participating in a graduate course brings the added benefit of varying backgrounds and experience, says Cameron. “We have nurses and physios, a few lawyers, a journalist and engineers. There is a vast variety of people, which is particularly beneficial in discussions.” Cameron describes the new Medical School’s facilities as amazing. “Everything we need is brand new; the anatomy labs, clinical labs and conference rooms - and the library has been re-stocked with new books,” he says. Deakin’s Medical School is focussed on training doctors for rural and regional settings. Cameron says, “I would like to contribute to a regional area or a country town.” After embarking on his second degree at Deakin, he has no doubts he has made the right decision. “I couldn’t ask for anything more,” he says.

JAMES XING BACHELOR OF NURSING Country of origin: China

It was a discussion with a senior lecturer during an open day that convinced James Xing that Deakin’s Warrnambool Campus was where he would study a Bachelor of Nursing. “One of the many elective subjects was perioperative nursing, an area I’ve always wanted to work in,” he said. Warrnambool was a perfect introduction to Australian country living and James now works at Portland hospital. In his own words, “come to Deakin Warrnambool – you’ll find our future here”.

Scott Blundell Bachelor of Food Science and Nutrition Country of origin: Australia

In the first year of his course, Scott found the chemistry component to be the most challenging. But Deakin’s study group option helped him immensely. “In our study groups, we helped each other. I was fine after that with chemistry,” he says. Finding the right balance between study and the social life that goes with university can be a struggle in first year, Scott says. But being organised is the key. “If you get yourself into a routine you can finish your work by the deadline, and you get two weeks to prepare for an exam so they are usually a breeze,” he says. Scott found the help provided by staff a big asset leading into exam time. “They gave us a lot of direction. Usually the unit chairs would hold a lecture on the exam and tell us how it was structured,” he says. Deakin’s Campus facilities have also impressed Scott. “Having come from a high school, with basic science labs, to Deakin, where an entire building is dedicated to food science labs and plenty of staff to prepare them for us, I was blown away,” he says. After completing his degree, Scott would like to undertake a masters in dietetics and then is likely to begin his career in the food production field.

PSYCHOLOGY

KELLY STUBBINS Bachelor of Applied Johanna Ming Meng BACHELOR OF BIOLOGICAL sCIENCE Science (Psychology) Bachelor of Applied Science (Psychology) Country of origin: China

3 b

Course code: H344

As part of this course, you will cover broad areas of study including information processing, mental processes and behaviour, and the factors which lead people to differ in the way they think and behave.

Ming instantly warmed to her lecturers. “They always encouraged us to look at psychology in its broader scientific context,” she says. She has made friends with students from Europe and other Asian countries. “What you can learn about other cultures is simply fascinating,” she says. Life as a student at Deakin has opened up a new world for her, a world that has contending views existing side by side, a world that prompts students to think for themselves. “It’s a very liberating experience,” she says. Ming is interested in taking up further studies in health, sports and exercise, forensic and organisational psychology and then working in industry. “It’s all about helping your patients and explaining to them in the simplest of ways what they need to do to improve.” As an international student for whom English is her secondary language, she has to consciously work on developing her language skills. “For the patient, the simpler your words, the better it is and my lectures are constantly encouraging me to develop my language and communication skills,” she says.

This course offers psychology as a specialist area of study together with complementary studies in health sciences, or other majors from across the University. Deakin’s psychology sequence is recognised for registration purposes by the Psychologists Registration Board of Victoria (PRBV) and is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC). The Australian Psychological Society (APS) recognises the psychology honours year for APS membership purposes. An honours year is available (a professional career in psychology requires the completion of honours or a Graduate Diploma).

Career opportunities Employment prospects are excellent for psychologists across a wide range of settings. Many psychologists work in schools and education settings, and are employed in businesses of all sorts, either delivering employee assistance programs or training. Organisational psychologists are in high demand, as are human resources consultants with a psychology major. There is a growing need for services of both general and clinical psychologists in Centrelink and the Commonwealth Rehabilitation Service. State offices of Corrections employ many forensic and clinical psychologists. Child, adolescent, adult, and aged mental health services and general aged care all provide a great deal of employment for psychologists. There are also good employment opportunities in sport psychology. Many psychologists are self-employed operating their own private practices, providing consultancy and general counselling.

Fees + costs 2010 Tuition fees for undergraduate full-degree international students

Your tuition fees are based on the units in which you are enrolled. This means you pay fees for the units you choose in your course, rather than paying a fixed course price. Different units have different fees, which are based on how much each unit costs the University to provide. For example, units which require laboratories or special equipment may cost more than units which do not.

2010 Undergraduate unit fees

The table to the right shows the 2010 international student undergraduate coursework tuition fees per credit point for each of the various disciplines clusters at Deakin. Before you can calculate the total cost of your units in 2010, find out which units you will study in your course, what clusters they belong to and therefore the rate per credit point which will be charged. Note that a normal full-time study load is 8 units per year. The actual cost of your year of study is determined when you enrol. When you pay your first trimester indicative fee (see pages 3–7), it will be credited to your enrolment. Depending on units chosen and their related cluster fees (refer to table), your enrolment record will be credited or debited depending on the fees you initially paid. The indicative fee for one trimester as listed on your Offer Letter must be paid before an eCOE (electronic confirmation of enrolment) can be issued.

96

Additional fees – ALL UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

tuition fee, FEE REFUND and privacy policies TUITION FEE AND REFUND POLICY FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with temporary resident status in a study program (provided that there is no stated limitation), and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have permanent resident status in Australia. These Policies comply with the Education Services for Overseas Students Act (ESOS Act 2000) and Australian Vice-Chancellors’ Committee’s guidelines on fees for international students. They are subject to changes when the guidelines are reviewed by the Australian education authorities. On-campus international students must meet Commonwealth Government guidelines for entry into Australia and enrolment at the University.

GENERAL REFUND POLICY A general refund may be given if written notice of withdrawal from unit/s or discontinuation or intermission from a course of study is received by the University by the following dates: For new international students : For those withdrawing having paid their fees: » 90 per cent (90%) refund is payable if the student withdraws at least 4 weeks prior to start of trimester; » 50 per cent (50%) refund is payable if the student withdraws between 4 weeks prior to the start of trimester and the census date of the relevant unit(s); and » no refund is payable if the student withdraws after census date. For those withdrawing having not paid their fees:

These Policies apply to all international on-campus students, irrespective of who pays the fees. They apply to commencing and continuing students and to those persons who have been offered a place in a course of study at the University.

» their enrolment will be terminated for non-payment of fees.

International tuition fees are charged on a per unit basis according to the discipline cluster of the units studied. Rates will be set annually and enrolled students will be invoiced at the prevailing rate in each year of their study. Invoices are available online each trimester. The complete and latest version of the Fees and Refund Policy is available online through The Guide at http://theguide.deakin.edu.au.

For continuing international students: For those withdrawing having paid their fees: » 100 per cent (100%) refund is payable if withdrawal is prior to the start of the third week of trimester; » 50 per cent (50%) refund is payable if withdrawal is between the start of the third week and the census date for the unit(s); and » no refund is payable if withdrawal from the unit(s) is after census date.

This agreement does not remove the right to take further action under Australia’s consumer protection law or pursue other legal remedies.

For those withdrawing having not paid their fees: » their enrolment will be terminated for non-payment of fees.

Fee liability Students who withdraw from a feepaying course or whose enrolment in a fee-paying course is terminated or lapses, will be liable to pay the tuition fees applicable. If students transfer to a new course, including a combined course, the prevailing tuition fees apply.

English language courses (DUELI) » The enrolment and orientation fee is non-refundable. » Refunds will not be granted after a course has commenced. » Requests for refunds received less than 28 days prior to the commencement of the course will receive a refund of fifty per cent (50%) of the tuition fee. » The maximum amount retained by Deakin will not exceed 12 weeks of the published tuition fee.

The retention of 10 per cent (10%) of the fees for commencing students is in recognition of the additional costs involved in administering the initial enrolment of international students.

Pathway programs Some students on a pathways program pay an initial deposit on their intended future award course at Deakin at the same time as commencing a certificate or diploma course at another institution. Two electronic Confirmation Of Enrolment forms (eCOEs) may be issued at this stage so that a visa is granted to cover both programs of study. This deposit may contribute to the payment of the first trimester fees at Deakin if the student meets the conditions for entry to a Deakin award course. If a student fails to qualify for entry into the Deakin award course, a full refund of the deposit may be requested. If a student meets the conditions for admission to Deakin, but notifies Deakin of an intention not to proceed with the packaged course, a retained fee equal to 10 per cent (10%) of the first trimester tuition fee applies. Full refund A full refund of tuition fees paid may be given in special circumstances. Such circumstances are those beyond the control of the student or those which make it impossible for the student to continue. The following reasons are grounds to apply for a full refund: » a student is refused a student visa by the Commonwealth Government authorities, or »

an offer is withdrawn or an enrolment terminated because the University is unable to provide the course of study, or

»

a student withdraws from a unit on the advice of a Faculty Course Adviser and does not enrol in a replacement unit (the signature of the Faculty Course Adviser is required), or

»

the University changes and is unable to offer unit/s such that a student is prevented from completing the unit/s and no credit is given towards other unit/s, or

» the course does not commence on the agreed start date and the student is not already withdrawn, or

» a student fails to meet progression rules and is not permitted to re-enrol, or » a student has gained Permanent Resident status prior to the University census date and has not been offered a Commonwealth supported place, or » a student withdraws from a unit and enrols in a replacement unit of equal value in the same trimester, or » a student provides written advice more than four weeks prior to the commencement of the English language course. Executive discretion may be exercised to consider applications which do not comply with the above provisions but for which extraordinary circumstances may exist. An application for a refund in special circumstances must be made in writing and sent to the Executive Director, Deakin International. Proof of payment of the fees (e.g. an official receipt) and validation of the reasons for applying for a refund will be required. Methods of refund » New students should notify the Executive Director, Deakin International, in writing any wish to cancel enrolment (prior to enrolment). » Enrolled students may apply for a general refund. Inquiries may be made at Deakin Central. » If Deakin defaults in the provision of the course the refund will be made within two weeks of the default event. » If the student defaults the refund will be made within four weeks of the University being notified. » Refunds will be made by cheque or EFT in Australian dollars only. » Refunds may be made to a nominated person/sponsor who initially paid the student fees. » Scholarship and sponsored student refunds will only be made to the scholarship or sponsoring body.

» the government has limited Deakin’s right to conduct courses for overseas students, or »

a student is unable to fulfil the conditions of an offer or selection criteria applicable to these applicants, or

tuition fee, FEE REFUND and privacy policies Changes to residency status during application Students whose residency status changes during the application process or while studying at Deakin University must notify Deakin International immediately. 1. If an international student gains Australian Permanent Resident status before enrolment, the student will no longer be classified as an international student. The student must reapply for admission and will therefore compete with other Australian students for either a local fee-paying place or a government-funded Commonwealth supported place. If the student is successful, he/she will be liable to pay either the local tuition fee or the student contribution for the commonwealth supported place. There is no guarantee that a place will be available and Commonwealth supported places are limited by a quota set by the Federal Government. 2. If an international student gains Australian Permanent Resident status after enrolment the student will still be classified as an international student for the remainder of that trimester and will be liable for payment of fees. However the student will be considered an Australian resident for subsequent trimester(s) and will be subject to conditions as outlined above. 3. Final dates for notification are census dates for each trimester. 4. Any approved refund of international tuition fees will be in accordance with the refund policy. See General refund for new students, page 99. Payment of international award course tuition fees by instalments International students undertaking award courses are required to pay fees for the units in which they are enrolled by the due date for those units. Such students, except those in their first trimester of study, may pay their tuition fees by instalment subject to the following conditions: » At least fifty per cent (50%) of the course tuition fees must be paid by the census date. » The balance of the course fees may be paid progressively in any amounts provided that the total amount is paid by no later than 31 days after the census date.

100

» If a variation to an enrolment results in an increase in the amount of course tuition fees, no extensions of time will be granted for payment of the additional fees. » If a student fails to make the required payments and does not contact the University by the applicable due date/s for payment, the student’s enrolment will be terminated. » The effective date of termination of enrolment will be the due date of the missed payment for the respective trimester. » This option does not apply where a student’s fees and charges are paid by a sponsor, employer or any other person or organisation. » Students can view their tuition fee details at any time via StudentConnect.
