22 >AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 Above: Universities campuses are vibrant and exciting, full of intellectual inquiry, social events, music, sports and fun. ACADEMIC ASSISTANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS The Australian university system aims to produce graduates who are independent thinkers. In class, you will be encouraged to ask questions, be involved in discussions and form an opinion. You learn important skills for your future – to be a critical thinker, to look for a creative approach and to solve problems. Universities provide academic support services for international students who are new to the Australian education style. You can receive help on areas like taking notes, writing essays and assignments, presenting in class and researching in the library. All university lecturers and tutors are experienced in their fields. They will give you a combination of theoretical and practical insights into your chosen field. In total, Australian universities enrol more than one million students, and employ more than 100,000 staff. VIBRANT UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES Australian university campuses are vibrant and exciting, full of intellectual inquiry, social events, music, sports and fun. You will make friends through your course and by joining in with other activities on campus. Universities offer a wide range of support services including the international office, health services, accommodation office, employment and careers service, sporting facilities, clubs and societies, and social events. Students at Australian universities are focused on studying and meeting the academic requirements of their courses. However, students are encouraged to participate in sporting, social and cultural activities to create a well-balanced lifestyle and a broader outlook. Your international office arranges social gatherings where you can get to know other students. Many faculties hold events such as seminars, balls and barbeques for their students. Your student union will also organise entertainment and events for the entire campus. At university, you’ll have many opportunities to get involved. Study at an Australian university and you will be furthering your goals in an environment of academic and research excellence. ● >FIND OUT MORE Study in Australia www.studyinaustralia.gov.au Universities Australia www.universitiesaustralia.edu.au QUEENSLAND Australian Catholic University www.acu .edu.au Bond University www.bond.edu.au CQUniversity www.cqu.edu.au Griffith University www.griffith.edu.au James Cook University www.jcu.edu.au Queensland University of Technology www.qut.edu.au University of Queensland www.uq.edu.au University of Southern Queensland www.usq.edu.au University of the Sunshine Coast www.usc.edu.au NORTHERN TERRITORY Charles Darwin University www.cdu.edu.au SOUTH AUSTRALIA Flinders University www.flinders.edu.au University of Adelaide www.adelaide.edu.au University of South Australia www.unisa.edu.au Carnegie Mellon (Heinz College) www.heinz.cmu.edu/ australia University College London School of Energy and Resources, Australia www.ucl.ac.uk/australia/ WESTERN AUSTRALIA Curtin University www.curtin.edu.au Edith Cowan University www.ecu.edu.au Murdoch University www.murdoch.edu.au The University of Notre Dame Australia www.nd.edu.au The University of Western Australia www.uwa .edu.au The University of Adelaide is consistently ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide.
