Australia: Last chance for UB scholarships

The University of Ballarat (UB) provides four International Student Excellence Scholarships each year – two for postgraduate (coursework) degrees and two for undergraduate degrees (including TAFE). But you need to act fast – applications close October 24th this year for the 2009 intake.

The scholarships provide a 25% fee waiver, credited to your account, for every year of study. To qualify, you need to be starting your full-time studies at the main Mt Helen Campus next February, and you will need to maintain at least a 60% average in your academic results.

If you are interested in studying in Ballarat in 2010, you still have time to apply for one of these valuable scholarships next year. The Good Universities Guide ranks UB as the best place to study in regional Victoria – and it is a great place for international students to experience rural Australia, but still be only an hour from the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne.

Friendly staff, a safe campus, small class sizes and modern teaching facilities are just some of the reasons why over 650 international students study in Ballarat.

Lu Gao, who studied her MBA at UB, says; “Compared with studying in China, the student has more opportunities to involve in the classes, and every one can express their thinking and ideas. Australia is a beautiful country. I experienced a whole different life that I have never had before.”

If you are interested in finding out more about the wide range of course available at the University of Ballarat, talk with one of our student counsellors.

thank you

Hello there,
I'm presently a final year student(7th semester) in Electronics and communication(Under West Bengal University of Technology),looking for a college that would offer a masters degree in a relevant field.It would be preferable if there is any oppurtunity in an institution in Melbourne,Australia,as I've got a relative living there pursuing a phd in Monash.A scholarship or any other form of financial aid is required as well.I've been maintaining a Cumulative Grade Point Avg. of 7.7 throughout the engineering course and my 10th grade results have an avg of 84%.The 12th grade results have an avg of 76%.Both the school exams were under CBSE board of India.Throughout my school life I've maintained a score above 75%.

Any other good institute located in a city other than Melbourne would also be great but in that case the financial aid has to be greater than what it would be in case of Melbourne as I would have to take care of my residential and other needs.

My regards.

Dear Sir/Madam
I have completed B.Sc (Honours) in Forestry from Dept. of Forestry and Environmental Science, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Bangladesh. I want to study in Australia in Forestry releted subject in Masters program (post graduate). Could you help me to get a scholarship?

Md. Parvez Rana

I am really interested in Master of Education, for the following reasons:

- To own Master in Education
- To achieve more professional knowledge
- To set up bilateral relations between my current University in Vietnam and your University.

I graduated from Hanoi University of Foreign Studies in 1999. Since then I have been doing professional work as a teacher, translator, interpreter and a certain work as administration / academic official for both Vietnamese and International companies / organizations. For the time being, I am teaching English at FPT University and running English program as a standing head. In order to make my statement in black and white, I would like to focus on the following points:
• Position 1: Standing head of English program
o Ensuring all studies and academic matters and issues are in place and up-to-date.
o Conducting regular academic audits, inspections.
o Supervising both local and foreign teachers to ensure that the academic standards and relevant academic cost savings are conformed.
o Assisting the Vice Rectors in resolving all academic issues.
o Advising the management in existing curriculum, resources, etc, and recommending new academic development direction.
o Coordinating with other departments in consolidating resources and working with other heads to share and distribute resources.
o Organizing teacher recruitment within the system.
o Compiling monthly reports for the Rector and the Management Board.
o Coordinating with the Management Board to form and develop training strategies and implement schedules.
o Reviewing examination questions and set up question banks for the program.
o Managing English clubs.
o Bearing any other responsibilities that may be added from time to time as required by the management.
• Position 2: Lecturer of English
o Teaching English to FPT students from beginner to advanced levels, including TOEFL PBT, iBT, IELTS, Business English and other skills of English, such as presentation, project writing skills..., even Computer based or Internet based English Learning and Teaching.
o Working as an editor for the University magazine and consultant to English language for FPT students.
o Designing, revising, organising English activities for the University
o Involving myself in other activities assigned by the University and by FPT Corporation.
• Methodology: I am enthusiastic about teaching and able to make students feel at ease. I have an interactive approach in my teaching, even plan Computer Assisted English Learning Programs, Internet Based English Teaching and Learning which I believe good methodologies. I am capable, inspirational, technological and open to ideas that will enable students to improve their language skills.

Furthermore, in the knowledge economy, I must know how to put things together: Education, ICT and Innovation, especially the impact on globalization, and advances in education that are transforming the profession. The approaches in my teaching seem to satisfy this economy but I do not have well-trained skills in education management, methodologies, especially by well-known institutions overseas. I suppose to study Master degree that will serve me best because I can improve my personal status at my university and the public interest. If I own the knowledge offered by any Australian institutions, I will be able to adjust myself to my work more effectively.

My FPT University is applying innovative methods of teaching and they are certain to conduct modern methods with the help of state-of-the-art technologies. This challenges me a lot and of course, I find it easy for me when I know how to put the ideas from the text book and ideas from the world news that have. I will be trained with strategies of the professional basics. My University encourages and supports me to find any chances to study overseas, even short or long courses. The more I can learn the better I will contribute to the advancement of the University. The idea of studying overseas to hone my English, my profession comes into my mind out of the blue. As the saying goes “you might die with more than one type of work” but I myself can arrange time to manage them well. That’s why I decide to choose education management.

Teaching, in my opinion, also means to reproduce a “human brain” – to train students to become more active and dependable. My students will have more freedom to enjoy their personal development. The knowledge will help me push them up. That is why I need a place to refresh my mind and learn practical and professional skills. Choosing to study in Australia has influenced me a lot and I do hope Australia and its universities, people and cultures will bring more spice to my life and my career as well as to socio-economy development in Vietnam.

This year I find my work rather stable than ever. It is time for me to pay attention to my higher education. I love teaching and doing something interesting, challenging in management. I am a devoted person, I am enthusiastic and dependable. I dare say - I dare work. The workload I have implemented will be a credit for any consideration of any institutions
