international.curtin.edu.au/perth

Experience the Australian lifestyle while studying at Curtin. The University is located in Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. A fast growing city with a stable economy, Perth offers you a vibrant and stimulating living environment.

P 

erth is a major gateway city to Asia. Located within the same time zone as Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore and Malaysia, major airlines fly between the cities many times a day. Western Australia has strong relationships with neighbouring countries and there has been recent interest from Asian investors in WA’s engineering and mining industries.

Enjoy Living in Perth, you will experience a multicultural, cosmopolitan and safe city, alive with arts, theatre, music, food and shopping culture. Across the city you will discover great locations to meet up with friends and have a good time – all easily accessible from Curtin via public transport. You can

try restaurants and cafés from all nationalities including Thai, Japanese, Greek, Italian, Chinese, French and contemporary Australian – everything your taste buds desire. In your spare time you can discover Western Australia’s famous beaches with clear water and white sand, which can be found just 15 minutes from the city centre. You can explore Kings Park and be surrounded by Australian flora and fauna. Discover Kings Park from a bird’s eye view on the tree-top walk – a glass walkway raised to the top of the park’s tallest trees. On a sunny day, pack a picnic and head to the banks of the Swan River where you can hire a kayak or try waterskiing.

Explore There’s a lot to see and do in areas outside the Perth city centre. Take a 20 minute drive and explore Fremantle – an exciting, creative city, full of cafés and restaurants, seaside activities, markets, and historical landmarks. Fremantle is home to the ‘cappuccino strip’ – a long stretch of cafés where you are guaranteed a great coffee. Catch a ferry over to Rottnest, a small island 19 kilometres off the coast of Perth. Swim, scuba dive, fish and go for a leisurely bike ride while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The island is home to the quokka, a small marsupial unique to the island as well as a large variety of birds and marine life.

A few hours drive south of Perth is a vast area of green bush land, wineries, amazing beaches and interesting towns. Margaret River, a coastal town located three hours drive south of Perth, is well known as a great location for holiday makers. You can sample local wines and delicious food at a winery before heading to the beach to watch a local surfing competition.

Relax Perth has more hours of sunshine than any other Australian capital city. Perth’s climate means the winters are mild and the summers are hot. Season Summer Autumn Winter Spring

Months Dec – Feb Mar – May Jun – Aug Sept – Nov

Avg °C 18-30 15-26 7-16 12-22

Grow Over the past decade, Perth has expanded into a city of opportunity with large growth in the state’s resources and mining industries. Western Australia’s economy has remained stable, despite recent global economic issues. The recent investment in the Gorgon Joint Venture natural gas processing plant by petroleum giants Chevron, Exxon Mobil and Shell in the north of Western Australia will bring a capital value of A$50 million. This is a significant investment for Western Australia and will help strengthen the State’s economy.

O

u   r research focuses on four main areas of expertise – Resources and Energy, ICT and Emerging Technologies, Health, and Sustainable Development.

Resources and Energy Western Australia’s recent growth in the resources and energy sectors has resulted in the need for high quality research in these fields. Curtin has invested in a A$116 million Resources and Chemistry Precinct on its main Bentley campus and maintains a significant presence with its Western Australia School of Mines, located in key mining areas. Curtin has also participated heavily in national initiatives in this arena such as the Cooperative Research Centre Program, supported by Western Australian Centres of Excellence in Science and Innovation.

ICT and Emerging Technologies As the world becomes more reliant on the use of technology to communicate information, Curtin is expanding its research in the area of Information Communication Technology (ICT). We are building strong foundations with initiatives such as the Western Australian Telecommunications Research Institute (WATRI) and iVEC supercomputer facility. We are also noted for our strengths in emerging technologies such as nanotechnology, hosting the Western Australian Nanochemistry Research Institute.

Health

Sustainable Development

The Faculty has established the Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute (CHIRI) – a unique and innovative integration of researchers, educators and health professionals with special emphasis placed on the chronic health needs of vulnerable populations.

There is strong interest in the environmental, economic, social and geopolitical sustainability in Australia and globally, and Curtin has invested significantly in research into these increasingly important ideas. Curtin has established numerous research centres including the Australian Sustainable Development Institute (ASDI) and the Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute. These centres focus on research into areas including sustainable development, climate change, sustainable tourism, water management and cleaner production.

o get the best start from your stay in Australia, we recommend you bring at least A$700 and have access to another A$2,000 during your first week. You will need this to pay bond money (property security) and rent in advance. Costs associated with electricity, gas and telephone services are usually paid later. Your living costs will depend on your taste, interests and financial position. You should plan a budget to suit your needs, but make sure it is flexible enough to allow for changes. If you want to buy a car make sure you consider additional expenses such as petrol, insurance and license costs.

School-age Dependants Dependants of international students may be enrolled in either government (public) or non-government (private) schools in Western Australia. Both public and private schools require the payment of full school fees. A visa for dependants must be obtained through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) or a representative. There are different public school fees for dependants of undergraduate students, postgraduate students and some scholarship students. It is important to understand these costs BEFORE departing for Australia. Please note: dependants of postgraduate international students (only Masters or PhD) may be enrolled in selected public schools in Western Australia at local student rates, provided

that the school has been registered and has the capacity to accept them. For more information and for contacts regarding visa processing, school fees and enrolments, visit www.international. curtin.edu.au/dependants and download the Dependant Schooling Information Sheet or contact the International Sponsored Student Unit at issu@curtin. edu.au or +61 8 9266 3348. Please note: If dependants enrolled in a public school require English as a Second Language learning difficulty or disability support, you may need to pay A$2,000 or more per dependant per year. This will be an additional charge over and above the relevant school fees. These associated costs are paid by the student, not by Curtin or the Department of Education of Western Australia. It is recommended that dependants commence English language training prior to arrival in Perth.

Work While completing your studies at Curtin, you can work part time to gain important industry experience, meet new people and get involved in life in Australia. Your student visa gives you permission to work in Australia once you have commenced your course. You are allowed to work a maximum of 20 hours per week during semester and unlimited hours during holiday periods. However, work should not distract you from your studies and you shouldn’t rely on your earnings to pay your tuition fees or other living expenses.

Visas While studying at Curtin there are certain conditions you must follow to ensure you meet your course requirements. You must be enrolled internally on a full-time basis and maintain satisfactory course progress

for each study period. Failing a unit may also result in the non-completion of your course within the normal duration, as not all units are available each semester. If you fail units and can’t enrol in any units in a given semester, you may have to return home and re-apply for admission, which may incur additional costs for tuition fees, visa application and living expenses.

Health Students must purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) from a registered health provider, approved by the Australia Government Department of Health and Aged Care. You will need to purchase OSHC to be granted a student visa. OSHC must be paid before you come to Australia in order to cover you when you arrive.

postgraduate degrees

A 

t Curtin, you can choose from a range of postgraduate levels of study. The progression of study varies depending on the entry requirements set by each School. To find out the progression of postgraduate study for a particular program, contact the International Office. Curtin’s postgraduate programs include the following:

Graduate Certificate Graduate Certificate courses are designed to develop skills in a specialised area that may or may not be directly related to that of an undergraduate degree. Some Graduate Certificates are specifically designed for non-graduates and allow you to progress towards further postgraduate study. All of the programs are career oriented, and usually take one semester.

Graduate Diploma The Graduate Diploma is a specialised, vocationally oriented award. Entry is normally based on completion of a Bachelor degree or Diploma, although this can be in an unrelated field if you have work experience in the field of study. Graduate Diplomas introduce graduates from disciplines outside

of their chosen higher degree to postgraduate studies. Less academically qualified applicants may still apply. Graduate Diplomas are usually completed in two semesters.

Postgraduate Diploma Emphasis in a Postgraduate Diploma is on developing greater knowledge and skills through advanced studies of methods, theories and strategies to which you have already been exposed at undergraduate level. You will maintain a vocational emphasis through strong links with industry. Completion of either the Postgraduate Diploma or Graduate Diploma usually takes two semesters, and you may be offered Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) should you proceed to a Master degree.

Graduate Entry Master Graduate Entry Master courses provide a fast-track learning experience for students with a previous Bachelor degree, and are available in Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychology and Accounting.

Master Degree A School may accept you into a Master degree provided that you hold appropriate qualifications as decided by the Head of School. Where appropriate,

provision may be made for you to undertake a bridging course or other preliminary work as a requirement for entry to a Master degree program. Mature-age students who do not have formal entry qualifications may still qualify for admission to the Master program. You may be given the opportunity to commence a preliminary program to the Master program, provided any relevant work experience or previous academic achievement is recognised by the Head of the School, as equivalent to attaining graduate status. If performance in this preliminary program meets the required standard, you may then qualify for admission to the Master program. A Master degree is usually completed in three or four semesters, unless RPL is awarded as a result of other relevant studies. Some Master degrees also have a work experience component.

Professional Master Degree Professional Masters are intensive, fasttrack programs designed to enhance the professional excellence of new graduates or working professionals. Each School sets RPL and credit for work experience and postgraduate qualifications, as well as specific entry requirements. Professional Masters are

structured around trimesters and study can be conducted by coursework or as a research project and examination. The course can usually be completed in three semesters, but may vary with the individual program. The Professional Masters are well recognised by employers as adding value to existing skills, keeping employees at the forefront of their professions. Successful completion of a Professional Master Degree may not allow students entry to PhD studies.

Doctoral Degree A student with a Master degree, or a Bachelor degree with First or Upper Second Class Honours may be considered for admission to a Doctoral degree. In exceptional cases, applicants holding Bachelor Pass degrees may also be considered for admission to either Master or Doctoral degrees, provided they can demonstrate superior academic achievement, significant work experience and the capacity to undertake significant research. As in any application for admission into a higher degree, the approval of both the Head of the relevant School and the Graduate Studies Committee is required. A Doctoral degree usually

requires at least three years of study. Research doctorates may sometimes be undertaken in a mixed mode – with one or two semesters completed in Perth, and the remainder in your home country. This arrangement is project dependent and must be negotiated on a case-by-case basis with your supervisor.

Although there may be a requirement for some coursework units to be completed, the main proportion of the work is in the form of a thesis written under the guidance of a supervisor. Assessment takes place after independent examiners mark the finished thesis.

Research & Coursework Degrees

How to Write a Research Proposal It is recommended that the research proposal is no more than two pages long. It should state your research topic and outline your research plan and the objectives you wish to meet. You must also be able to show you have sufficient experience and knowledge in the selected area. The proposal should be accompanied by at least 10 cited references.

Research For a Master degree to be considered a research degree, at least two-thirds of the required work towards the degree must be pure research. The award of Master by Research indicates that you have contributed substantially to the knowledge or understanding in a field, and are capable of carrying out independent research. Applications for Masters by Research or Doctor of Philosophy must include a written two-page synopsis outlining the parameters and purpose of the research you wish to undertake. Please visit www.research.curtin.edu.au/forms for more information, and to download the application form.

Coursework In a Master by Coursework, students enrol in subjects and attend lectures and tutorials. There will often be a minor research component, but assessment is progressive throughout the course.

Fee Information

Refund Agreement

C HS H S

The tuition fees (shown in Australian dollars) are based on a normal fulltime workload of 100 credits per semester (200 credits per year) unless otherwise stated. Students studying more than 100 credits per semester will have a higher annual tuition fee. The tuition fee is calculated and charged on a semester or, where appropriate, trimester basis. A student should expect that the indicative semester/ trimester course fee, as shown on the Letter of Offer, might vary from the actual tuition fee depending on the units (subjects) undertaken. The actual tuition fee is not calculated until enrolment is completed. To calculate the actual course fee, you can refer to the unit (subject) fee that is listed at www.fees.curtin.edu.au/course_fees.cfm. The Total Indicative Course Fee is an estimate of the total fee for the entire duration of the course and includes estimated indexed yearly increases. Indicative Essential Incidental Fee may be for items such as extra lab materials or course materials specific to that course. All fees listed are subject to annual increases. Information is correct as at December 2009 and is subject to change.

The categories under which the University Fees Centre will assess an application for refund are laid out in  the university’s International Students Refund Agreement. The Agreement stipulates the circumstances that determine the levels of reimbursement a student applying for refund is eligible to receive. The Agreement is supplied to you with your Letter of Offer and can also be accessed online at www.fees.curtin.edu. au/refunds_forms.cfm
