>AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 21 ‘Australia has 39 universities with campuses in many locations from capital cities to tropical and regional areas.’ ENTRY REQUIREMENTS To gain a student visa for an Australian university course, you must meet both academic requirements and English language requirements. Each course has its own specific entry requirements. For an undergraduate degree, you will need to have the equivalent of an Australian Senior Secondary Certificate of Education (Year 12). Some courses may also have specific pre-requisite subjects, such as chemistry or mathematics. If you do not meet the full entry requirements for an undergraduate course, you may be able to undertake a foundation studies program. This program is one year of intensive preparation which will give you the skills you need to enter an undergraduate course. Foundation studies programs have a number of student intakes throughout the year. At the postgraduate level, you must have satisfactory completion of at least one degree at undergraduate level. The university may also take work experience or research ability into consideration. STATE-OF-THE -ART FACILITIES Australian universities range in size and vary from city campuses to those in the countryside or near the sea. Programs take advantage of their local environments, so you may decide to study rainforests in a tropical area or marine science close to the ocean. All universities have state-of-the- art research facilities, as well as modern libraries, computer labs and specialist equipment such as editing suites for film students. To ensure that facilities remain up-to-date, the Australian Government is investing almost $3 billion into tertiary education and innovation infrastructure. This will position Australian universities to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of the new education and innovation environment.
