living in perth

progress in perth Western Australia is recognised around the globe for its unique natural environment, amazing weather and relaxed lifestyle. But that’s not all we have to offer. Investment in the state’s mining and resources industries has strengthened the economy, providing avenues for development, employment and lifestyle in one of the most desirable places to live in the world. Big things are happening in Perth, and now is the time to make the most of everything this growing city has to offer.

international.curtin.edu.au/perth.cfm

Mining growth Western Australia is the nation’s largest exporter with the strongest economy and lowest unemployment rate of all Australian states and territories. Despite the recent challenges for the global economy, the value of the WA’s mining and petroleum industry reached A$70.9 billion in 2010. This growth is set to continue with new partnerships between Australia and China—including ventures such as the Karara Iron Ore Project—as well as the multibillion-dollar Gorgon Natural Gas Project and Rio Tinto’s decision to expand its iron ore infrastructure in the state’s Pilbara region. The project will be the largest mining project ever carried out in Australia, providing even more opportunities in the years ahead. Building our future Major construction works are underway to revitalise Perth and make the city a more vibrant and dynamic place to live than ever before. The State Theatre Centre of Western Australia—the newest addition to the Perth Cultural Centre— opened early in 2011. The theatre presents contemporary dance and performing arts from local and international artists in the heart of Perth’s most cosmopolitan entertainment district.

Perth Arena, scheduled for completion in 2011

Work is also underway on the new Perth Arena: a state-of-the-art venue that will feature sporting and entertainment events such as WA’s own international tennis tournament, the Hopman Cup. The golden state Let’s not forget all the things that Perth is famous for: blue skies, pristine beaches, a thriving cafe culture, boutique wineries and delicious cuisine from around the globe. With worldclass tourist destinations on your doorstep and more hours of sunshine than any other Australian capital city, Perth offers plenty of places to explore on your weekends and study breaks. Perth is located in the same time zone as cities such as Singapore, Beijing, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, making it easy to stay in touch with your friends and family while you experience the Australian lifestyle. You’ll also have the support of an international community of over 200 nationalities to help you feel at home.

Perth makes top ten Perth’s excellent standard of living, along with the city’s low crime and unemployment rates, saw it placed in the top ten most desirable cities in the world in the London-based Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2010 global liveability survey. The survey ranked 140 cities in terms of their stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Organisations such as the East Perth Redevelopment Authority (EPRA) are working to make Perth an even better place to live with urban renewal and regeneration projects, creating sustainable growth and vibrant urban areas. Their projects range from creating an urban orchard in the city to transforming a disused power station into a waterfront destination for work, living and leisure.

Living in Perth will be an exciting and rewarding experience. Everything you need is within your reach, and planning a budget for the costs you need to cover will help you make the most of your time in Australia. To get the best start, we recommend you bring at least A$700 and have access to another A$2,000 during your first week in Australia. 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 licensing costs. Budget You will need to purchase items such as textbooks and stationery so you should plan ahead to cover these costs. You should budget an extra A$350 per year for items such as photocopying and course-related incidental costs such as protective clothing. Textbooks and reference books will cost an additional A$150 – 400 each semester. The cost of books can vary considerably depending on the course and units you choose. For cheaper, secondhand books, try the Curtin Secondhand Bookshop.

School-age dependants In Western Australia, dependants of international students may be enrolled in either government (public) or nongovernment (private) schools registered by the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). A visa for the dependant(s) must be obtained through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) or a representative. Both public and private schools require the payment of full school fees. Government (public) school fees vary for dependants of undergraduate students, postgraduate students and some scholarship students. It is important to understand these costs BEFORE your dependants arrive in Australia. Note: Dependants of postgraduate international students (master or PhD only) can 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, enrolments and a list of schools, visit www.international.curtin.edu. au/dependants and download the Dependant Schooling Information Sheet. You can also contact the International Sponsored Students Unit on +61 8 9266 3348 or issu@curtin.edu.au 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 to 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 before arriving in Perth.

living in perth

Finances Work You can work part time to gain important industry experience, meet new people and get involved in life in Australia while you study. Your student visa gives you permission to work in Australia once you have started your course. You are allowed to work a maximum of 20 hours per week during semester and unlimited hours during semester breaks; 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 To meet your course requirements, you must be enrolled as a full-time, internal student and maintain satisfactory course progress for each study period. Not all units are available in every semester so you may have to apply for another visa to complete your course if you fail a unit. If the units you need to graduate are not offered, you may have to return home and re-apply for admission. This may incur additional costs for your visa application, tuition fees and living expenses. Health You must purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) from a registered health provider, approved by the Australia Government Department of Health and Aged Care. All international students need to purchase OSHC before their student visa will be granted. Your OSHC must cover the full length of your student visa.

Progress at Curtin Curtin University’s new name comes with a new logo and a new vision: to become one of the top 20 universities in Asia by 2020. so what does that mean for you? A new curriculum, even better facilities, and more opportunities to get the most out of your degree.

GO

enriching our courses Choosing a degree is a big decision, which is why we’ve made our undergraduate degrees even more flexible. You will have the freedom to follow your interests as you learn more about your field before choosing a major that suits your career goals. Our new Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees give you the opportunity to study in your area of interest without the pressure of choosing your major before you start your studies. Just like our Bachelor of Commerce degree, you’ll study some foundation units before choosing a single or double major from an extensive range of disciplines. We have also developed an exciting range of cross-disciplinary double majors to help you blend your creative interests with a business discipline. Some popular combinations include textiles and entrepreneurship, international relations and economics, journalism and public relations, and creative writing and advertising. Find out more on page 33.

Building a reputation Curtin’s new Engineering Pavilion and Health Sciences Graduate Research Hub are the most recent additions to our range of world-class facilities. The multimillion-dollar Curtin Resources and Chemistry Precinct, completed in 2009, is the largest research facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere, giving students direct access to industry and international research opportunities. Curtin Stadium, also new in 2009, features an expansive gym, sports courts, ladies studio and group fitness rooms. Beach volleyball courts, tennis courts and the Perth Hockey Stadium— one of the leading hockey venues in Australia—are located just outside.

Creating international opportunities With seven campuses across the Asia-Pacific region, Curtin gives you all the benefits of a truly international university. All of the courses offered at our campuses in Sarawak, Singapore and Sydney are run using the same unit structure and study materials as our courses in Perth, meaning that you can transfer between two campuses to complete your Curtin degree. When you graduate, you’ll have a degree that is recognised in more places around the world and be able to complete further study at either campus to enhance your career prospects.

Shape the future Under a project supported by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), academics from the School of Management are working with partners in the Philippines to link smallholder vegetable farmers to supermarkets and food processors. The farmers are organised into collaborative marketing groups, or clusters, who plan their planting schedules and harvest, grade and pack their fresh produce to meet the standards of their buyers. One of the largest supermarket chains in Mindanao will source the majority of their fresh vegetables from the clusters, provided that the farmers’ practices are safe, environmentally friendly and sustainable. www.business.curtin.edu.au/ research

Be prepared for the workplace Start building your professional contacts and business networks before you graduate. In addition to learning from experienced teaching staff, you’ll be exposed to some of the industry’s top employers through fieldtrips, internships, real-life client projects and high-profile guest lecturers. Unique study opportunities such as Capstone—the final unit in the Bachelor of Commerce—will give you an advantage over other graduates as you apply the skills you learn in your degree to a contemporary case study using resources from leading local and international organisations.

Curtin’s MBA program is ranked fourth in Australia and eighth in the Asia-Pacific region in The Economist magazine’s 2010 “Which MBA” rankings. Offered through the Curtin Graduate School of Business, the program has specialisations available in strategic procurement and oil and gas management. Our MBA students gain more than recognition and expertise; you will also have opportunities to put what you learn into practice. As part of your MBA program, you will be required to complete professional and career development activities through the Professional Portfolio initiative. “What I enjoyed most was that the project work was evaluated and based on real-life business situations, not hypotheticals. There was always a good level of interaction and mental debate. I loved it,” says Christian Lange, a Curtin MBA graduate.

Health sciences: Finding solutions for the real world Learn at one of the most comprehensive health campuses in the Asia-Pacific region and develop the skills to shape the future of global health. Curtin’s Faculty of Health Sciences educates more health professionals than any other university in Western Australia.

Innovative research comes from collaboration, which is why Curtin has developed a new Health Sciences Graduate Research Hub for our research students. The Hub, opened in January 2011, provides 127 workstations along with video conferencing facilities, seminar rooms, wireless network facilities and common areas for students to discuss their ideas in a world-class environment.

RSS

Education without borders If you’re interested in learning how to address health problems in marginal communities, Curtin’s award-winning Centre for International Health will provide you with a rewarding study experience. The Centre specialises in areas such as the control of infectious diseases such as HIV and AIDS, improving maternal and child health and making primary healthcare available to the very poor. Staff from the Centre also carry out consultancy projects for external organisations such as AusAID, UNICEF and the International Organisation for Migration, enabling them to provide highly relevant teaching material for students. www.cih.curtin.edu.au

The new facilities are the latest additions to the Faculty’s range of industrystandard facilities, which help students like Jessica Davies develop their own skills and research interests. Jessica, an occupational therapy student, is studying the effect of Parkinson’s disease on driving for her honours project.

study areas

The University is also investing over A$9 million in new teaching and learning facilities for occupational therapy and social work students. From early 2011, students will be able to practice patient care scenarios in areas such as pediatrics, physical rehabilitation, splinting, and ergonomic and injury rehabilitation in state-of-the-art laboratories. The development also includes a new lecture theatre, library, counselling rooms and tutorial spaces, all equipped with the latest technology.

Curtinews

“I have a big driving simulator here at the uni and lots of resources, and I really get to communicate with the participants of the study and do that hands-on work.” Jessica says. Going global The Faculty won three prestigious Australian Learning and Teaching Council Awards in 2010, recognising some of our outstanding contributions to student learning. One of the awards was for Go Global—a unique program that gives students the chance to provide health services in collaboration with our partner organisations in China, India, Ukraine and South Africa. The Faculty’s new partnership with the Kenyan Medical Training College will provide new opportunities for students and improve the healthcare capacity in East Africa. The partnership allows graduates from the College’s Higher Diploma to complete the final year of Curtin’s Bachelor of Science (Health Safety and Environment) online, and graduate with a Curtin degree.

humanities: Bringing creativity to life Be inspired and gain the experience to turn your passion into a versatile career. Whether you’re a talented artist, linguist, environmentalist or urban planner, Curtin will help you build the skills to be an innovative professional. Creativity is more than artistic flair; it’s an ability to use your imagination to create original solutions.

Beyond arts and languages, the humanities include fields such as architecture, project management and international relations that need resourceful professionals who can find solutions to a range of problems. A degree from Curtin’s Faculty of Humanities will help you develop a flexible skill set that will let you carve your own dynamic career.

Be part of the solution Climate change and resource depletion are global concerns, with organisations looking to the creative industries for solutions. The Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute (CUSP) is located in Fremantle: a vibrant port city that is home to the first carbon-neutral local government in Western Australia. CUSP welcomes postgraduate students from all disciplines who are committed to creating a sustainable future. www.sustainability.curtin.edu.au

Design your degree At Curtin, we believe that you shouldn’t be tied down to a career path by the course you choose. A Curtin humanities degree is as flexible as you are, giving you opportunities to customise a degree that suits your own unique interests and ambitions. Anissa Van Uffelen, a final year mass communication student, started out with a strong attraction to television and creative advertising but developed a passion for marketing towards the final year of her degree. She was able to pursue her new interest because of the multidisciplinary nature of her course. “You can choose your own path,” explains Anissa, “not have the course choose your path for you.”

science and engineering: transforming the future Don’t miss out on the opportunity to study in some of the most sophisticated learning spaces in Australia. Curtin’s Faculty of Science and Engineering gives you more opportunities to use the latest technology and get involved in world-class research.

In 2009 we opened our new, multimillion-dollar Curtin Resources and Chemistry Precinct: a unique collaboration between the University, government and industry that provides research facilities for the largest group of scientists and engineers in the Southern Hemisphere. Two years on, the Precinct is attracting high-caliber projects, including an A$1.2 million agreement with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation to conduct research into the storage of nuclear waste. Curtin PhD student Weixi Zhan uses the Precinct’s facilities to help with his work in improving the water quality in the 500-kilometer Perth to Kalgoorlie Pipeline.

See the stars align In 2012, an international committee will decide if the world’s most powerful telescope— the A$2.5 billion Square Kilometer Array (SKA)—will be built in Western Australia’s Murchison region or in southern Africa. The International Center for Radio Astronomy Research, a collaboration between Curtin University and the University of Western Australia, is part of Australia’s effort to secure the SKA project and ensure its success. The Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy is one of the Centre’s two research nodes. www.astronomy.curtin.edu.au

In 2011, two key research groups of the Western Australian School of Mines—the Gold technology Group and the Environmental Inorganic Geochemistry Group— will move into the Precinct. Both groups have significant industry funding to solve global problems relating to complex mineralogical environments.

Moving forward The University’s Engineering Pavilion, opened in December 2010, is the newest addition to Curtin’s cluster of state-of-the-art learning spaces. Featuring openplan areas for practical design work, smaller rooms for meetings and a careers space for students to interact with industry, the Pavilion is designed to promote cross-disciplinary learning. There is also an open plan area for career fairs and events, giving students the chance to interact with industry and develop relationships with prospective employers. The Pavilion hosted the 2010 Curtin RoboFest which included the second iNexus Australia National Robotics Competition. The event was organised by staff and students from Curtin’s Faculty of Science and Engineering, Curtin Business School and the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, with students competing for a chance to compete in the world finals in Mumbai.

ELB course content The 10-week program is of a higher level than the 17-week program and has a slightly different language and academic skills focus. Students take the number of weeks necessary to meet their target exit level. This will be indicated on their offer letter from Curtin University. ELB (17 weeks) The first three weeks are designed to give students intensive language development in all skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing, as well as initial preparation for future university studies. Over the next four weeks, students work intensively on academic language development and specific preparation for university studies. The main focus is on academic English, especially reading and essay writing research-based skills. A series of guided lectures on various topics is set.

ELB Intensive (10 weeks) For the start of the 10-week program and following on from the seven weeks of the 17-week program, students receive specific academic language and skills training. The main focus is on developing academic task-specific English language. Students experience a wide range of assignment types, and learn to use a wide range of academic English to listen effectively to lectures and communicate in group discussions. Students also complete research projects based on a topic related to their future subject and to give formal presentations.

All classes have a maximum of 18 students. Each class will have two different teachers. Students will also be given self-study work every day and will be given access to computer-based academic English self-study resources. Assessments Students will be continually assessed throughout the course through timed written essays, seminar skills, project work and oral presentations. For more information on either of the ELB courses, visit celc.curtin.edu.au ELB (17 weeks) FEES

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 your 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.

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.

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.

postgraduate

further your career

At 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 Curtin International. Curtin offers the following postgraduate programs:

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.

# English Entry for physiotherapy, nursing, psychology and pharmacy courses can only be met by IELTS or OET (Occupational English Test). TOEFL is not acceptable. Note 1: Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) guidelines exist for physiotherapy and psychology courses. These guidelines require students undertaking postgraduate clinical placements to obtain limited or provisional registration, which requires applicants to achieve an IELTS score of 7.0 across all bands or an overall pass in the OET with grades A or B in each of the four components. Therefore, the University will require any student undertaking these courses to submit an IELTS or OET prior to being eligible for admission into the mainstream course. At time of publication no other tests of English will meet AHPRA requirements. Further information is available from www.ahpra.gov.au

* Course undertaken on a 75-credit point per semester basis ^ Entry offered on a case-by-case basis # Course requires supplementary information as part of the application process. Please visit www.international.curtin.edu.au/apply

Fee information The tuition fees (shown in Australian dollars) are based on a normal full-time 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

Refund Agreement The categories under which the University Fees Centre will assess an application for refund are laid out in the University’s International Student Refund Agreement.

postgraduate

As all courses at Curtin are taught in English, you will need to meet Curtin’s English Language requirements. You may be deemed to meet Curtin’s English Language requirements based on completion of a bachelor degree course in which English was the language of instruction. This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Any one of the tests in the tables opposite can also be accepted as satisfying Curtin’s English language requirement.

For admission into Curtin, you must provide evidence of completion of a degree from a recognised university and provide evidence of English language proficiency.

The Agreement stipulates the circumstances that determine the levels of reimbursement that 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 Please refer to www.fees.curtin.edu.au/ refunds.cfm for the most up-to-date information as the policy is subject to change from time to time.

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 fees are 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 January 2011 and is subject to change.

Note 2: Applicants who complete a bachelor degree course in which English was the language of instruction will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Note 3: Students applying from certain countries (such as China and India) will be required to undertake an IELTS test in order to be issued with a student visa by the Australian Government.

Higher degrees by research

Research degree entry requirements A higher degree by research differs from other postgraduate degrees in that at least two-thirds of the study program must involve research. Although you need to complete some coursework units, the main part of the work will be a thesis written under the guidance of a supervisor.

You may be deemed to meet Curtin’s English language requirements based on completion of a bachelor degree course in which English was the language of instruction. This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Any one of the tests in the tables below can also be accepted as satisfying Curtin’s English language requirement.

You can check the specific requirements for master and doctoral research degrees at www.curtin. edu.au/research/futurestudents/ admission.cfm Applications for higher degrees by research can be made at any time of the year. As all courses at Curtin are taught in English, you will need to meet Curtin’s English language requirements.

MINIMUM ENGLISH LANGUAGE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS - research English language test

Score

IELTS (International English Language Testing System)

DOCTORAL DEGREE A doctoral degree usually requires at least three years of study. Students with a master degree, or a bachelor degree with first or upper second-class honours, may be considered for admission.

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 depends on your project and must be negotiated with your supervisor.

A list of supervisors is available from www.curtin.edu.au/research/ futurestudents/register/register.cfm

Applications for master by research or PhD degrees must include a written two-page research proposal outlining the parameters and purpose of the research you wish to undertake. Visit www.research.curtin.edu.au/guides/ forms/forms.cfm for more information and to download the application form.

WRITING A RESEARCH PROPOSAL Your research proposal should be no more than two pages long. It should state your research topic, outline your research plan and the objectives you wish to meet, and show that you have sufficient experience and knowledge in your selected area. The proposal should be accompanied by at least 10 cited references.

Although students may need to complete some coursework units, the major part of the work will be in the form of a thesis written under the guidance of a supervisor. HOW TO APPLY You will need to consult the postgraduate coordinator, faculty graduate studies officer and other staff in the relevant teaching area to discuss the suitability of your proposed research topic, make sure you meet Curtin’s entry requirements and ensure that there is a supervisor and facilities available to accommodate your research.

For more information, including contact details and application forms, visit www.curtin.edu.au/research/ futurestudents/admission.cfm
