Our Outstanding Alumni
Asantha Sumanarathna (Master
of Engineering Science 1995)
A groundbreaking project is set to boost
Sri Lankan export industries by sterilising
local products such as foods, spices, and
medical items.
Engineering alumnus Asantha
Sumanarathna has landed the job of
directing the Sri Lankan Ministry of Science
and Technology’s first Gamma Irradiation
Project, providing critical decontamination
services to local businesses.
Asantha is confident the skills he learned as
an AusAid scholar will help him succeed in
his current position.
“The modern management skills training
I received improved my leadership skills,
which helped me to rise to the senior
management position I am holding today,”
he said.
A stint as Vice-President of Melbourne’s
Council for Overseas Students, and as the
Overseas Student Officer for the University
of Melbourne Postgraduate Student
Association helped fine-tune his leadership
skills. Asantha always remembers his
Melbourne experience, saying the University
is “the best place to study while having a
joyful student life.”
Dr Bill Chang (Arts/Engineering –
Honours 1999, PhD Engineering 2005)
As a bioinformatics researcher at a leading
Taiwan academy, Academia Sincia, Dr Bill
Chang is used to facing challenging new
biological problems. But he says these
challenges make his job interesting.
Dr Chang believes his degrees from the
University of Melbourne equipped him with
skills necessary to get ahead in this highly
competitive field.
“The engineering course gave me not
only fundamental engineering theories,
but also provided me with essential time
management and problem-solving skills,”
he said. “Outside of studies, the University
also provided a lot of relaxing and fun
activities.”
Yan Feng (Master of Applied
Commerce 2004)
University of Melbourne alumnus Yan Feng
was right where the action was during
the 2008 Beijing Olympics. As financial
manager of one of the largest Press Centres
in Olympic history, Mr Feng worked around
the clock to make sure the 5600 journalists
who flooded the Press Centre had
everything they needed.
“Certain materials and equipment had to be
purchased for use by the press,” Mr Feng
said.
“But after two or three months, the
equipment will no longer be used, as it’s
a one-off event.
“I needed to strike a balance between
providing adequate service to the press and
making sure there was no financial waste.”

“I find Melbourne
full of fascinating
contradictions – the
energy of the city
compared with
the vast space in
the suburbs and
beyond; different
architectural styles;
and the blend of
people. Melbourne
has so many
different layers
to explore.”
Shpend Mula,
Bachelor of Film and
Television, Republic of Serbia
“There are sports and cultural events for all
tastes, the city is safe, public transport and
general traffic is well organised and the food
is good… nothing like Peruvian food, but
there’s a great variety of Asian food. Definitely
worth coming all the way from Peru!”

Courses and Careers Information
Graduate Study at Melbourne
The University of Melbourne offers over 340 different graduate
programs, ranging from coursework programs that provide professional
qualifications and career development opportunities, to research
degrees such as the PhD and MPhil. Melbourne’s graduate degrees are
recognised around the world, and our strong international reputation
and networks open doors for graduates wherever they go.
Australia’s First Comprehensive
Graduate Schools
Melbourne’s graduate schools deliver
coursework and research programs of the
highest quality in a stimulating, supportive
and professional environment.
Each graduate school is dedicated to the
specific needs of its students, managing its
own admissions, student administration and
student experience programs. Each school
offers access to career support, internships
and mentoring programs to help students
build their professional capabilities and
develop career strategies before graduation.
See individual graduate school sections for
more details.
Strengths of graduate education at
Melbourne include:
>> engagement with the professional
community in the design and delivery
of many graduate programs
>> professionally focussed programs
designed around the capabilities of
graduate students
>> a strong global reputation for quality
research and research training
>> new forms of academic collaboration and
cooperation including the fostering of
inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary
programs
>> opportunities to develop key professional
skills – cross-cultural communication,
problem-solving, interpersonal skills
>> the provision of high-quality career
planning advice.
Coursework Programs
A coursework program is built around
timetabled classroom and lecture-based
learning. Qualifications available by
coursework include graduate certificates
and diplomas, Masters degrees and some
professional doctorates.
These programs offer a blend of structure
and flexibility, as students complete a
stream of core subjects and may choose
from a range of elective subjects to
complete their studies. Some coursework
programs also offer a research project or
minor thesis.
Students in graduate coursework programs
can explore topics of interest and build
specialist skills within an established
learning framework.
A coursework program might be well suited
to those who are looking to broaden their
knowledge base and enhance their career
development.
Research Programs
A graduate research degree allows you
to study a specific subject area in great
depth and involves sustained independent
enquiry, carried out under the direction of
a supervising academic. Qualifications
include the PhD, professional doctorates,
Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Masters
by research. Research degrees can include
coursework, but the research component
accounts for at least 66 per cent of credit
towards the degree. See the list of graduate
degrees on page 10 for details of research
degree types.
A research degree would suit students
seeking to develop their analytical skills,
explore their passion and pursue a thirst for
knowledge as part of a dynamic research
community.

graduate research at Melbourne see

Graduate Professional
Entry Degrees

Australian Commonwealth Government
endorsement as pathways to professional
practice. Designed with the needs of
internationally mobile graduates in mind,
many of these qualifications are recognised
by professional bodies around the world.

course of study than undergraduate
programs in the same disciplines, and they
emphasise the development of workplace
skills. As masters and doctoral degrees,
they are prestigious qualifications which can
provide an important edge in competitive
employment markets.

University’s New Generation undergraduate
degrees, but are open to graduates from
any university who meet prerequisites

A highlight of Dara’s experience as a
graduate student was her research in postconflict Aceh, Indonesia, and “to work as an
internee in an organisation that deals with
female ex-combatants”.
“I admired their solidarity, courage and
determination during their time in war and
I wanted to help them in their struggle for a
better life in post-war Aceh”.
Dara completed her masters in 2008 and
now works as a freelance researcher and
consultant in Indonesia and Nepal. Her
areas of expertise are peace-building
issues and post-conflict development.
The best part of her job is “supporting
the community to eradicate deprivation,
especially in a post-conflict situation”.

A Graduate Certificate allows students to
complete a comprehensive six-month course of
study, from a choice of more than 40 discipline
areas. It is particularly useful to students who are
returning to tertiary study after time away from an
academic environment. Successful completion of
a Graduate Certificate may allow students to enrol
in a Graduate Diploma, or a Postgraduate Diploma
or some Masters by Coursework programs.
Coursework
The Graduate Diploma is similar to an
undergraduate major and is ideal for those
wishing to study a new discipline. This course
is suitable for professional development or
general interest. It is also a preparatory program
for those intending to study at a higher level
in an area they have not studied previously.

Diploma or a Masters by Coursework program.
Coursework
The Postgraduate Certificate is a short, coherent
degree in a specialist area of study. The course
may provide an entry point for further postgraduate
study. Successful completion of a Postgraduate
Certificate may lead to study at Postgraduate
Diploma level. Some postgraduate certificates
may qualify students for entry into a Masters by
Coursework degree program with the possibility
of obtaining credit points for relevant subjects.

in comparative terms, providing in the process a
uniquely comprehensive understanding of how these
politics work. It should also be noted that the program
offers the opportunity to specialise in the study of
particular aspects of world affairs, either through

Melbourne School of Design
In July 2008, I was privileged
to be part of an organising
committee that brought
together the two cultures that
have had the largest influence
on my life. As a Kenyan
citizen, I have spent most of
my university life in Melbourne
and as such I have always
sought a way to link this life
with my roots in Kenya.
Through various consultations with
NGOs such as the UNESCO observatory
in Melbourne and GAPS Australia, a
strategy was formulated to take a group of
architecture students on an international
studio to rural Kenya. The focus of the
studio was to offer new opportunities to the
community as well as offering a platform for
cross-cultural learning.
Through my father’s contacts in Kenya, we
were able to identify a community in rural
Kiambu; a town situated 15 km out of the
capital Nairobi. The community had a dual
agenda of tackling education for girls in the
community as well as tackling the issue of
health and HIV AIDS.
aren’t fortunate enough to attend higher
education, as well as a Health Centre,
focussed on HIV awareness and prevention.
The focus of the design was to integrate
Western technology with traditional ways of
life in an effort to facilitate self-sustainability
within the community.
On arrival, the community gave us an
amazing welcome highlighted by a variety
of cultural dances and a diverse range of
Kenyan cuisine. We were able to work with
the community and fully understand what
their needs and goals were.
The trip was a huge success and a lot of
credit has to go to GAPS, a student-run
NGO based at Melbourne University. We
were able to make lifelong ties with the
community and our next stage is to give
our all to make sure that the designs are
realised into built form.
Through further consultations with
the community, we were able to work
collaboratively with local leaders in the
design of a Vocational Training Centre
that would teach skills to those who

Urban planners are in demand
nationally and internationally. There
is a national shortage of accredited
urban planners (according to a national
survey in 2005), and many graduates
go on to practice in Europe, North
America, Asia, and the Pacific.
Urban Planning is of increasing
importance as cities and regions
grapple with the challenges associated
with sustainability, social equity
and economic development. These
challenges are leading community
groups, environmentalists and
economic policy-makers to re-think
established approaches to planning.
Two years fulltime equivalent
>> a three-year undergraduate
degree in any area with a weighted
average of at least 65% in the
final two years, or equivalent.
Note that students who have
completed relevant prior study and/
or at least two years of documented
relevant full-time professional work
experience, or equivalent, may be
eligible for advanced standing.
Developing new responses requires
recognition of the interrelated aspects
of most planning problems, which calls
for an interdisciplinary skill set, along
with capacity through specialised skills
to address the tension created by the
intersection of global, national and
local interests at particular locations,.
These elements are captured in the core
specialisation and elective structure
of the Master of Urban Planning.
Specialisations are available in:
>> social and community planning
>> economic planning
>> urban design
>> environmental planning
>> transport planning
Students may also take research
subjects which may enable progression
to further studies as PhD candidates.
The Master of Urban Planning is
accredited by the Planning Institute
of Australia and undergoes a regular
review process for quality assurance.

Melbourne School of
Land and Environment
John Allwright Fellow chooses
to study at Melbourne School
of Land and Environment
After completing a Masters
in Environmental Forestry in
the UK, Cossey Keosai Yosi
was awarded a John Allwright
Fellowship Award, funded
by the Australian Centre
for International Agriculture
Research, and administered
by AusAid. The funding is
for three years and supports
Cossey’s research project,
‘Scenarios for communitybased management of cutover
native forests in Papua New
Guinea’.
“I chose to study at the Melbourne School
of Land and Environment because of its
reputation for academic excellence in the
research area. Strong industry links and
international research collaboration was
also an important deciding factor for me.”
Cossey’s research addresses the
challenges PNG faces in terms of resource
development as the government looks for
alternative ways to improve and sustain
the livelihoods of a large rural population.
PNG has 39.4 million hectares of forest and
80 per cent of the population depends on
it for food, shelter, medicine and cultural
benefits. Ninety-seven per cent of the forest
is under customary ownership of individuals
or community groups. Given this situation,
the future management of cutover forests
in PNG is likely to be decided by local
community groups.
A major challenge is the development
of sustainable management systems for
cutover forests that meet the needs of
community forest owners. At present, the
production capacity of logged-over forest
areas and secondary forests in PNG is not
well understood and the future of marketing
wood products from native forests is also
uncertain. Cossey’s research will address
these uncertainties and attempt to develop
methods for analysis of management
49
scenarios for cutover forests. The aim is to
support community decision-making with
regard to future use of the forests.
Cossey relocated to Australia with his
wife and three children, and says that the
move has been challenging. He believes,
however, that the knowledge he will gain
will make the experience highly worthwhile.
On completion of his PhD, Cossey
plans to return to PNG to work with his
current employer – PNG Forest Authority
– to contribute to the socio-economic
development of his country.

The Graduate School
Experience
Creative approaches to learning
As a graduate student, you will experience
a rich variety of learning styles, which take
advantage of developments in new learning
technologies. Courses are structured to
be as flexible as possible. Many subjects
are taught in short, intensive blocks and
some are online; others incorporate realtime online video seminars with other
universities.
Experiential learning is central to MSLE’s
approach with extensive use made of
field visits and on-site training. You will be
encouraged to extend your skills with short
courses in new research methodologies,
statistical analyses and academic writing.
Presentation and debate of concepts
and theories is given special priority, and
postgraduate students are encouraged to
submit and present papers, abstracts and
posters at seminars, focus groups and
conferences.
MSLE is uniquely equipped to deliver its
broad range of courses through its network
of campuses in urban and regional Victoria.
These campuses are located at Burnley,
Creswick, Dookie and Parkville, and each
has outstanding facilities to support both
teaching and research. All courses have
been developed in close collaboration with
industry and employers, ensuring they are
focussed and relevant and that graduates
are well placed to become global leaders.
Multi-faculty cooperation
The courses offered through the Office
for Environmental Programs (OEP) are
unique and multidisciplinary, drawing on
the resources and expertise of most of the
University’s faculties. While the OEP exists
as a discrete unit, responsible for its own
programs, it is formally part of MSLE.
Career Outcomes
Many international graduates who join the
MSLE are career professionals seeking
to develop existing skills, deepen their
professional commitment, or seek a change
in career direction, taking advantage of
an increasingly diverse and specialised
employment environment. Whatever their
goal, employers value the enhanced skills
that come from MSLE’s coursework and
research programs. Research indicates that
by 2013 demand for quality employees in
areas such as environmental management,
forestry, horticulture, viticulture and
agriculture will increase by 36 per cent.*

About the Office for
Environmental Programs
Environmental issues are the dominant
concern of the early 21st century. The
Graduate Environmental Program (GEP)
which includes Masters and Postgraduate
Diploma/Certificate options, is an innovative
multidisciplinary coursework program that
provides a breadth of understanding of
environmental issues while also building
specialist expertise. The flexible nature
of the program enables you to tailor your
studies to fit your academic background,
areas of interest and career aspirations.
International Leadership
The GEP is supported by academics with
international reputations for research,
teaching and collaboration. International
benchmarking of the program has shown
that it adopts an innovative approach to
environmental education, incorporating
core subjects specifically designed to foster
multidisciplinary thinking.
The Graduate Experience
At the University of Melbourne we believe
that solutions to environmental issues
will be revealed through multidisciplinary
research, underpinned by trans-disciplinary
education across the University, giving
a broad understanding of environmental
issues.
The flexible nature of the GEP gives you the
opportunity to undertake internships and
industry research projects as part of the
curriculum. Extra-curricular activities, public
seminars and workshops sponsored by the
Office for Environmental Programs further
enhance your opportunities to engage
with environmental professionals and
researchers.
Our program operates in conjunction with
a Community Industry Advisory Board
(CIAB), whose members share a strong
commitment to environmental sustainability.
Student support and facilities
The Office for Environmental Programs
is dedicated to the management of the
GEP and to fostering greater cooperation
in environmental teaching across the
University.
The Office is a hub for all activities relating
to the program.
Support services available to students in the
GEP include:
>> Information about administrative matters,
orientation, seminars and social events.
>> A computer laboratory for exclusive use
by GEP students, equipped with desktop
PCs, printer and photocopier.
>> Advisers representing the program in
each participating faculty who can provide
details about subjects, paths of study and
areas of interest.
>> Links with the International Centre,
Melbourne School of Land and
Environment, and the Graduate Centre.
>> Events that provide an opportunity to link
with past and present students from the
GEP community, and representatives from
industry.
Career Outcomes
Graduate qualifications have global
currency and are a great way to show
commitment and motivation. In most
employment sectors there is an increasing
demand for people with the skills to apply
multidisciplinary insights to the problems at
hand. In addition, the opportunity to interact
with other students from a wide range of
employment and backgrounds means
benefiting from the exchange of ideas and
experience.
For professionals working in
environmentally-related areas, career
advancement is enhanced by graduate
qualifications. There remains strong
demand for graduates with technical
environmental expertise allied with a
working knowledge of environmental
law, policy, economics and industry
requirements.

“What gave Melbourne Law School the
edge for me was the wide range of subjects
offered. I had the pleasure of being taught
by local and international lecturers who are
at the top of their field and are committed
to making the learning experience a
stimulating one. I was also exposed to
guest lecturers who are not only experts in
their field, they also genuinely enjoy sharing
their vast knowledge and experience. That
was inspiring!”
“The combination of an MBA and a Law
degree was very attractive in terms of
career opportunities either in Law or
other industries. Given the reputation of
Melbourne Law School and the course
structure, I chose the Melbourne JD.”

1 The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardised assessment – delivered in English – that helps business schools assess the qualifications of
applicants for advanced study in business and management. Schools use the test as one predictor of academic performance in an MBA program or in other graduate
management programs. The GMAT measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that applicants have developed over a long period of time in their
education and work. The Melbourne GSM will waive the GMAT/GRE requirement for applicants with an undergraduate or graduate degree from an Australian university,
who have achieved a GPA of 75%.
2 Provide a personal statement, of no more than 800 words, describing your personal motivation to undertake further study. The statement can include details of your
personal circumstances as well as your life and work experiences.
3 The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) – General Test measures verbal reasoning, qualitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills that have been
acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. The GRE General Test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels
to supplement undergraduate records and other qualifications for graduate study. The Melbourne GSM will waive the GMAT/GRE requirement for applicants with an
undergraduate or graduate degree from an Australian university, who have achieved a GPA of 75%.
† The
Melbourne Business School
MBS Career Centre helps
to navigate into unchartered
territory
and after much networking between ANZ,
MBS and Kate, she was offered the role of
corporate finance analyst.
It took three career changes
in three different countries,
plus an MBA, which she was
forced to defer three times,
for Kate Webster to attain
her current role as corporate
finance analyst at ANZ.
Kate entered the workforce in 1994 (aged
21) with a degree in physiotherapy from the
University of Manchester. After two years at
the coalface she moved into management,
first running a recruitment office in London,
then setting up a subsidiary office in
Canada for two years.
She says that prior to doing an MBA, her
career options were getting narrow and
were about to hit a ceiling. “Now I’m a small
fish in a big sea, and I can move wherever I
want, which is exactly where I want to be.”
“On the day it got to minus 52°C, I picked
up the phone and said, ‘I need to go
somewhere warmer’,” she says. “But the
skiing was great,” she added.
She added her new role was 100 per cent
facilitated by the skills she had learnt
in the MBA program and support from
MBS Career Services. ANZ was one of
several companies to present at an MBS
recruitment drive during Kate’s MBA. The
Career Services team helped rewrite her CV
Unhappy with the MBA courses being
offered in Canada at the time, Kate was
faced with either returning to London or
going elsewhere. She accepted an offer of
integrating a Melbourne-based business
into the parent company and moved here
in 2004, then almost immediately applied
to MBS.
“The first thing I looked at was the Financial
Times rankings. MBS consistently ranks
one of the best in Australia. I thought if I’m
going to invest this much time, effort and
money into an MBA, I actually wanted to do
it at a prestigious school that was known
internationally.”

Medicine, Dentistry
and Health Sciences
Our medical research ‘Oscar
winning’
Professor Trevor Kilpatrick,
the Director of the University’s
Centre for Neuroscience, and
his Multiple Sclerosis Group,
were awarded the prestigious
Eureka Prize for medical
research for 2008.
The Australian Museum Eureka Prizes,
dubbed the ‘Oscars of Australian science’,
are the nation’s top science awards. The
Multiple Sclerosis Group, based at the
Howard Florey Institute, received the
award in recognition of their significant
work that focuses on finding treatments for
sufferers of multiple sclerosis. The group
is developing strategies to limit the severity
of demyelinating diseases of the central
nervous system, of which multiple sclerosis
is the most common cause.
Trevor Kilpatrick, a Melbourne MBBS
graduate (1982), also coordinates the
University’s Neurosciences and Behavioural
Sciences Research Domain. “The main
challenge in coordinating this domain will
be in providing leadership to research that
is dispersed among multiple centres”, says
Trevor. The Eureka Prize success testifies
to the value of forming alliances and
collaborations – the result is outstanding
research.
Trevor was also named one of Melbourne’s
100 highest achievers – people who have
made a significant contribution to public
life – in The Age newspaper’s Melbourne
Magazine.

any other university in Australia and offer
programs in areas of medicine, dentistry,
physiotherapy, nursing, psychology,
public health, rural health and social
work. Our affiliations with world-class
hospitals and medical research institutes
and our multidisciplinary environment
provide extensive study opportunities and
professional networks.
Diversity is valued and a key objective is to
prepare all our graduates for practice in a
global context, through an understanding
of best-practice in local and international
health care delivery. International students
are warmly welcomed and a faculty-specific
international student support program
aims to meet the needs of our individual

neurosciences and behavioural sciences;
and public health, epidemiology and health
services. There are over 1400 researchers
working within the Faculty’s schools,
departments and centres with further
expertise in the Faculty’s affiliated medical
research institutes. The breadth of research
makes it possible to find world leaders in
any health speciality area, leaders who
supervise and mentor research students.
The strong research culture ensures that

informed by cutting-edge research, for
example in the Master of Public Health, a
graduate course offered within the School
of Population Health. Our students also
undertake research higher degree studies in
many affiliated medical research institutes.
Internationally recognised staff
Researchers within the Faculty have
created many international linkages through
research collaborations. In 2008, Faculty
researchers published 3000 scientific
papers incorporating 2000 international
collaborations with researchers from more
than 80 countries. Example projects are
found in the Public Health Epidemiology
and Health Services research domain which
has a global reach with projects being
conducted in Papua New Guinea, India,
Bangladesh, Myanmar, Indonesia, East
Timor, Fiji, Mozambique, Thailand, Vietnam,
Cambodia and China. Tien Wong, Head
of the Department of Ophthalmology and
Managing Director of the Centre for Eye
Research Australia, has forged links with the
National University of Singapore. Another

Foundation Consortium for research
into Familial Breast cancer (kConFab).
Headed by Professor John Hopper and
Associate Professor Melissa Southey,
this is a large collaborative research
project between Australia and New
Zealand that brings together geneticists,
clinicians, surgeons, genetic counsellors,
psychosocial researchers, pathologists and
epidemiologists from both countries.

Faculty of Music
“I am very pleased with the
quality of training provided by
the University of Melbourne.
My supervisors have been
outstanding. I have found the
quality of teaching to be at
an international standard and
comparable with top quality
universities in the States. This
is very important for me as
I plan on going back to the
United States and have the
confidence that the training I
have acquired here will give
me a great start to my career.
“For me doing my Masters degree in
Composition has been about finding my
own unique voice as a composer. One
pleasant but unexpected aspect of my
degree is that I have had so many new
ideas and perspectives shown to me that
I have so much more I want to study. I
believe a sign of a good education is not
when an empty bucket is filled but when
a fire is ignited. Melbourne University has
done that for me. I would have no hesitation
recommending Melbourne University to my
friends and colleages overseas who are
interested in Music Composition.”

of Science
World leader in life sciences
computation
in partnerships that would otherwise be
impossible to achieve.
Under a new Victorian Life
Sciences Computation
Initiative, the University of
Melbourne will host a $100
million supercomputing
program and facility. This
will be the most powerful
supercomputer and leading
computational biology facility
dedicated to life sciences
research in the world, and the
first of its kind in Australia.
Professor Geoffrey Taylor from the School
of Physics, said that this initiative is aimed
at placing the University at the top. “This is
more than just a computer… (it) will provide
for expertise, partner involvement and
national and international collaboration.”
The supercomputing program will be
embedded within the University’s new
Life Sciences Computation Centre. The
Centre will provide a platform capacity
that brings together the best researchers
“The benefits of the local facility are that it
will provide a faster and more focussed
response for our key researchers; with
better synergy between laboratory and
clinical researchers and with the power that
advanced computation facilities offer. It
will allow for training of staff and students;
and act as a key attractor for top lifescience researchers, while also attracting
pharmaceutical and other industries to
Victoria,” Professor Taylor said.
The supercomputing boost will accelerate
major ground-breaking medical research
– tackling the fight against cancer and
other life-threatening diseases. Professor
Peter Rathjen, Deputy Vice-Chancellor
(Research) said, “The Parkville initiative will
lead to major improvements in public health
outcomes and will have an impact on some
of the biggest challenges facing our health
system and quality of life such as cancer,
cardiovascular and neurological disease,
and diabetes.”

Melbourne School of
Veterinary Science
PhD student scoops
prestigious research award
Smitha Georgy, an
international PhD student,
has been awarded a $4500
bursary, beating top students
from across Australia.
Smitha, who moved to Melbourne from
India in 2006, received the Thenie Baddams
Bursary in recognition of her research into
bone repair.
Smitha was selected for the bursary by the
Australian Federation of University Women,
South Australia, from 268 applicants and
used the money to pay for her attendance
at the 35th European Symposium on
Calcified Tissues, in Barcelona in May 2009.
“I am proud of my achievement and it
motivates me to concentrate further in my
research,” said the 32-year-old. “It is very
exciting to find out what is unknown in a
biological system and I love doing this.”
She hopes her research will bring benefits
in the fields of fracture management,
bone repair and growth, particularly with
problems such as osteoporosis.
Parasite expert wins coveted
Fulbright Senior Scholarship
Dr Robin B. Gasser, Professor
in Parasitology and Associate
Dean International was one
of four talented Australians to
be recognised as a Fulbright
Senior Scholar in 2008.
The award enabled him to visit a number
of institutions in the USA, including the
California Institute of Technology (Caltech,
Pasadena) and the Genome Sequencing
Center (Washington University School of
Medicine, St Louis), to research aspects of
parasite genomics.
Robin’s research, ‘Parasite genomics:
toward new intervention strategies’, will
utilise advanced technologies and concepts
to gain improved insights into the molecular
biology of parasites and their interactions
with their hosts.
Professor Gasser said he had chosen to
further his research in the USA to be able
to access new technologies, skills and
know-how: “While considerable expertise
in infectious diseases exists in Australia,
there is limited investment in cuttingedge genomic technologies and model
systems which allow exciting fundamental
investigations and biotechnological
outcomes.”

With the new DVM we have taken
a revitalised look at how we can
bring together technological
change, clinical and scientific
progress, and stimulating
teaching and learning methods.
As well as learning the latest
theory and practice, students
can expect plenty of practical
hands-on experience, taught by
a team of leading veterinarians.
As from 2009 students expecting to progress
to the Veterinary program will need to either
complete the three-year new generation
Bachelor of Science degree with a major
in Animal Health and Disease (Veterinary
Bioscience specialisation)‡ at the University
of Melbourne, or a biological science
degree from an approved university.
The program
will take a
school leaver
six years to
complete, and
a graduate with
an appropriate
undergraduate
degree four
years.
March
TBA
VS1
The result is a unique degree
course that has been designed
to ensure that our graduates
have an increased capacity
to successfully negotiate
their way in a world where
knowledge is rapidly renewed,
and where they are equipped
with the knowledge and
skills to be competent and
talented veterinarians.
By studying veterinary science
via the Melbourne Model,
students will get all the benefits
of a double degree, graduating
with a Bachelor of Science
degree with a major in Animal
Health and Disease (Veterinary
Bioscience specialisation)‡
and a DVM* degree.
Biological Science graduates from other
institutions wishing to enter the three year DVM,
will need to complete a one-year graduate
accelerated pre-DVM program, which will
be available at the UoM from 2011. Students
who successfully complete all studies in the
Veterinary Bioscience specialisation will have
guaranteed entry to the DVM program.
The specific prerequisites for the biological
science degree are yet to be determined,
but it is likely that it should include at least
one semester of study in each of cell
biology and biochemistry, together with
some foundation physics and chemistry.
The entry criteria for the three-year Bachelor of
Science program at the UoM are VCE – units 3
and 4, with a study score of at least 25 in English
(any), Mathematical Methods (either), and in one
of Biology, Chemistry or Physics. The minimum
ENTER for Australian students for 2009 was 85.
Students considering progressing to the new DVM
are strongly advised to select VCE Chemistry units
3 and 4. This will provide a strong foundation for
Chemistry at first-year tertiary level. It is important
to note that a pass in Chemistry at first year
university level is a prerequisite for enrolment in
a number of core second year biological science
subjects, for example biochemistry and molecular
biology, pharmacology and pathology. Those
students who don’t undertake VCE Chemistry
units 3 and 4 can also undertake an introductory
pathway in Chemistry that is offered at the UoM.

Geraldine Cook, Head of Voice in VCA Drama
and Jodie Harris, a graduate actor of the VCA
who wears a cochlear implant. Geraldine and
Jodie led a 10-week training program for the
ARC Vocal Empowerment project.
Art and science combine
to tell stories of the
hearing-impaired
Actor vocal training
techniques have helped nine
young adults with cochlear
implants, some who have
never spoken in public before,
to tell their personal stories of
being hearing-impaired and
using cochlear technology
through a performance at
the VCA.
The performance, Wish 3 More Wishes,
was the first creative research outcome of
the ARC Project, ‘Vocal Empowerment:
Researching the effect of actor vocal
training on young adults with cochlear
implants and hearing aids’. VCA Drama
and the Department of Otolaryngology at
the University of Melbourne were awarded
$150,000 to conduct this research in
collaboration with industry partner Cochlear
Ltd.
The project has so far involved a 10-week
training program using actor vocal training
techniques, pre- and post-psychology
testing, data collection from pre- and
post-recordings of participants, and vocal
training workshops which culminated in
the performance. The participants worked
alongside Geraldine Cook, Head of Voice
in VCA Drama and Jodie Harris, a graduate
actor of the VCA who wears a cochlear
implant.
The performance, directed by Naomi
Edwards (a postgraduate director from VCA
Drama) was presented to an audience of
scientists, speech pathologists, parents,
teachers of the deaf and arts educators.
Following the performance, Cochlear
announced extra funding for the group
allowing it to perform in Sydney and
to participate in a forum with Cochlear
engineers. There, the group gave feedback
about the efficacy of the implant and
suggestions to improve its performance
when users were playing sport, dancing and
listening to their iPods. Cochlear invited the
group to return to Sydney to perform at their
AGM at Homebush Stadium.
One of the aims of the project is to
investigate how mixed methodologies from
the creative arts and sciences can intersect
to research the possibility of broadening the
scope of habilitation practices for hearing
technologies. An unexpected benefit of
the project has been the confidence the
participants gained from having found
a community of people who experience
similar frustrations and joys for the first time.
Rather than their hearing impairment being
treated as a problem, the project allowed
them to work with their own voices, giving
them vocal skills to gain attention and
control nerves when speaking in public.
About the Victorian College
of the Arts
The Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) is
Australia’s premier visual and performing
arts training institution and a Faculty of
the University of Melbourne. Unique in
Australia, the Graduate School at the VCA is
an exciting new destination for professional
graduate study and research training. It is
the umbrella body for a range of courses
comprising graduate certificates, graduate
and postgraduate coursework programs,
Masters by Research and PhD programs
in Art, Dance, Drama, Film and Television,
Music, Production, Puppetry, Community
Cultural Development and Indigenous Arts
Management. These programs are studioand performance-based.
The VCA is located in the thriving city-centre
arts precinct in Melbourne, which is home
to The Australian Ballet, the new Melbourne
Recital Centre and Melbourne Theatre
Company, Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne

Contemporary Art, Chunky Move Dance
Company, ABC Studios, State Theatre
and Hamer Concert Hall, and the National
Gallery of Victoria. The VCA maintains
strong links with these arts bodies, with
opportunities extended to students and staff
for collaborative work and performance.
International Leadership
Research
Research at the VCA covers such diverse
areas as aesthetic and philosophical
enquiry in the visual arts; the translation of
specialist knowledge of the body in dance
and voice; analysis of techniques and
training methods in music; and technical
innovation in areas such as animation and
production design.
In many research projects, the artist’s
knowledge, skills and experience are
combined with those of researchers,
scientists and technicians from other
disciplines across the VCA and the
University of Melbourne, external institutions
and community organisations in Australia
and overseas.
Internationally recognised staff
Highly trained teachers who are also
practising artists instruct graduate students
at the VCA. One such example is Professor
Shirley McKechnie, VCA Dance, who was
awarded an Australian Research Council
grant of $180,000 for a national dance
research project. The research addresses
problems faced by the Australian dance
industry at its most creative level – the
methodology and practice of the craft of
choreography.

Scholarships and Study Costs
Our ambition at the University of Melbourne
is to attract the best and brightest students,
regardless of their financial circumstances,
and to offer them an education equal
to any in the world. Working out your
financial obligations for overseas study
can be difficult, but the University can
provide you with advice about what you
need to consider, as well as real financial
assistance. Our support services recognise
that, as a graduate student, you may require
advice and support for your family as well
as for yourself while you study.
The Melbourne Scholarships Program
is one of the most comprehensive and
generous of its kind in Australia. If you have
received an unconditional offer for entry into
an eligible University of Melbourne course
you are automatically considered for most
of our scholarships.
A separate application form is not required
for scholarship consideration. The only
exception is the Human Rights Scholarship.
A strong academic record is required to be
competitive for these scholarships.

Tuition Fees
From 2010 tuition fees for graduate
students may be charged on the basis
of course rather than subject. This is
currently being reviewed and detailed
information will be published in the 2010
International Tuition Fees brochure.
There are often many questions about
tuition fees; the information below answers
some of these questions. You will receive
detailed fee information and the fee
policy when you are offered a place at the
University of Melbourne. More information
about tuition fees is also available online:
www.futurestudents.unimelb.edu.au/int/
apply/fees
What fees do I pay?
You pay tuition fees based on the subjects
you choose to study. Subject fees are set
within a fixed number of bands based on
the costs of teaching the subjects and the
demand for the discipline in which they fall.
The Discipline Fee Band Table on page 107
shows the costs for subject disciplines for
2009. The rates apply to both coursework
and research higher degree students. The
amount you are charged is the sum of the
fees for all subjects in which you enrol.
Typical 2009 course tuition fees for the first
year of study are found in each graduate
school and faculty. These fees are based
on the average enrolment of past students
in first year.
Will my tuition fees ever differ
from the published fee?
The subject and typical first-year course
fees detailed in this publication relate to
2009 only. These fees are subject to annual
review and may be adjusted to take into
account price and demand factors for each
discipline band. The University provides
a guarantee to international students that
the fee will not increase by more than
10 per cent per annum in any discipline
for graduate subjects.
Other fees
There are other costs associated with your
studies that you need to consider, including
compulsory Overseas Student Health
Cover (OSHC) and optional Student Service
Organisation membership fees. The specific
fees payable will be included in your letter
of offer.
How do I calculate
my tuition fee?
100 credit points is a standard full-time
load for one year of study (one Equivalent
Full-time Student Load [EFTSL]). The fees
shown in the Discipline Fee Band Table
on page 107 are for each 100 credit points
(one EFTSL) that you take.
Coursework students
Fees are charged based on the EFTSL
value of the subject (different subjects may
have different values).
For example, if a subject is a 12.5 credit
point subject (0.125 EFTSL) then the fee
charged is 0.125 multiplied by the fee shown
in the Discipline Fee Band Table. The total
fees you will pay in any year are the sum of
the subject fees for all subjects in which you
enrol. The website below gives details of the
EFTSL value and discipline of every subject
at the University.
See: http://fee.acs.unimelb.edu.au
Example: Anwar is an international student
who enrols in a Master of Accounting in
2009. He enrols in a total of 100 credit
points (1 EFTSL), comprising seven
subjects: two accounting subjects of
12.5 credit points each (0.125 EFTSL each),
two economics subjects of 12.5 credit
points each (0.125 EFTSL each) and three
commerce subjects, two of 12.5 credit
points each (0.125 EFTSL each) and one
of 25 credit points (0.25 EFTSL).
Anwar’s fees for 2009 are calculated as:
(2 × 0.125 × $28 400) +
(2 × 0.125 × $28 400) +
(2 × 0.125 × $28 400) +
(1 × 0.25 × $28 400) = $28 400.
Research students
Fees are based on the workload (EFTSL)
you undertake in each semester. Research
semesters differ from coursework
semesters in that semester one is defined
as 1 January to 30 June (six months)
and semester two is defined as 1 July to
31 December (six months). You will be
charged on a daily pro rata basis. If you
enrol after a semester commencement date,
your first semester fees will be adjusted to
take account of the number of days you will
actually be enrolled.
Example: Mamiko is an international
student who enrols in a Master of Education
(by Research). She starts her degree on
1 January with a semester workload of
0.5 EFTSL. Mamiko’s semester 1 tuition fee
is calculated as: (0.5 × $28 400) = $10 400.
However if Mamiko did not commence until
20 March, her tuition fees would be adjusted
to take account of the fact that her first
semester will be of only 103 days’ duration.
This means she will be charged only
from 20 March, thus her tuition fee will be
calculated as: (103/181 × 0.5 × $20 800)
= $5918.
Overseas Student Health
Cover
It is compulsory for holders of student
visas to take out Overseas Student Health
Cover (OSHC) while studying in Australia*.
International students may choose from
five OSHC providers, while Norwegian and
some Swedish students may be exempted
from OSHC – a result of agreement between
the Australian and Norwegian governments.
See: www.services.unimelb.edu.au/
international/visas/oshc.html
The University requires all students to
purchase visa-length cover, or courselength cover, at the time of accepting their
offer. This ensures that you are compliant
with the conditions of your student visa
and you have up-to-date health insurance
for the entire length of your study program.
The University’s preferred OSHC provider is
OSHC Worldcare.

Your Student Experience
Living in Melbourne
Housing and Long-term
Accommodation
Regional and associated
campuses
The Student Housing Services team
provides advice about Melbourne’s housing
options and tenancy matters in order
to assist you in finding and maintaining
affordable, safe and appropriate housing.
We understand that what suits one student
may not suit another, and recommend that
you explore the full range of housing options
and services available.
The University offers housing and/or
housing advice at most of its associated
campuses. If your chosen studies will be
undertaken at an associated or regional
campus, see: www.services.unimelb.edu.
au/housing/options/associatedcampus
In Australia, unlike in many other countries,
most students live in housing that is
located off-campus. There is a big range
of University-affiliated and private sector
housing options to choose from. As there
is competition for some kinds of rental
accommodation in inner city areas, it is
important to allow enough time to locate
your preferred housing option.
We recommend that you allow at least four
weeks to arrange your housing.
More comprehensive housing information
will be included with your letter of offer to
study at the University of Melbourne.
See: www.services.unimelb.edu.au/housing
University-Affiliated Housing
Residential halls and colleges
There are 12 residential colleges at the
University of Melbourne, located either on
campus or within short walking distance.
Students who are successful in their
application to a college are provided with
academic and pastoral support. Colleges
also offer study-related facilities such
as libraries, computer rooms and music
practice rooms.

Private Sector Housing
AccomNet
After you are offered a place at the
University of Melbourne, you can access the
University’s AccomNet housing database.
AccomNet is managed by Student Housing
Services and provides numerous listings of
available housing options, such as share
house, rooming house, homestay and
rental properties. AccomNet is available
online, and printed advertisements are also
pinned on noticeboards at Student Housing
Services.
Hostels (rooming houses)
Many privately run long-term student
hostels are located close to the University.
Hostels can provide single or shared rooms,
furnished or unfurnished. They usually offer
communal lounge, bathroom, kitchen and
laundry facilities. Some hostels also offer
meal plans. Like the colleges, hostels offer
communal accommodation.
Private board/Homestay
Private board or homestay means living
with a family, couple or single person
in their own home. This may be a good
option for you if you would like a ‘home’
environment. Costs vary and usually include
rent, gas, water and electricity bills. There
are three types of boarding options: partboard (accommodation only); full board
(accommodation plus meals); or board in
exchange (accommodation in exchange
for household duties, e.g. cleaning,
child-minding). In addition to listings on
AccomNet, Student Housing Services
can provide contact details for several
homestay placement agencies that will
offer assistance for a fee.
109
Private rental and shared housing
Through the private rental market you
can lease a house or an apartment from
a landlord or real estate agent. This can
offer you an independent lifestyle and
privacy. Vacant properties available through
the private rental market are generally
unfurnished. Living with other people in
a share house is usually one of the more
affordable options as many of the costs
can be shared.
Student apartments
There are several student apartment
complexes in the city centre and close to
the Parkville campus. These apartment
facilities are operated by private businesses
and are designed specifically for students.
Apartments are furnished and include
their own private bathroom and kitchen,
offering an independent style of living.
Many apartment providers organise social
activities and have communal spaces for
residents. There is a range of apartment
styles you can lease, such as studio, onebedroom, one-bedroom twin share and
two-bedroom.
More information about all of these options
and how to arrange them is available on the
Student Housing Services website.

Students with families
The University’s policy Children on
Campus aims to create a work and study
environment that is family-friendly and free
from direct or indirect discrimination.
Before bringing your spouse or children
to Australia you will have to prove that you
can support them financially. Rather than
bringing your family to Australia with you,
some students may find it useful to arrive
first, settle into studies, find appropriate
accommodation, adjust to living in
Australia, and then arrange for their family
to join them. Visit the ISS website for more
information.

planning/family
Students with spouses

community-based English language
support programs. Further information is

when you arrive, or you can send an
email to:

Step 2
Attach original or certified copies of all relevant documents, such as academic transcripts, references, a key to the grading system
used on your transcripts, and a research proposal if applying for a research degree. If you are applying for credit for subjects studied
at another tertiary institution, include a detailed description of each of the subjects with your application. If any of these documents are

the English language requirements can be satisfied please refer to:
www.futurestudents.unimelb.edu.au/int/apply/grad/english-req.html

tuition fees. The assessment fee can be paid by bank cheque (payable to ‘The University of Melbourne’ at an Australian bank) or by

Welcome from the

At the University of Melbourne, quality
education, research and knowledge transfer

Melbourne establish itself as a leading
international university.
Melbourne prides itself on its capacity to
respond to the evolving challenges and
opportunities presented by a sometimes
unpredictable global environment. This
is demonstrated by the success and
consolidation of the Melbourne Model, the
new curriculum reform introduced in 2008,
now well established and providing all our
students with the benefits of a distinctive
‘Melbourne Experience’.
As a graduate student at the University
of Melbourne in 2010 you will have many
opportunities to excel provided by a
stimulating, professional environment, and

supportive campus culture brimming with
ideas and possibilities. At our dedicated
Graduate Centre, incorporating the
Melbourne School of Graduate Research
and the Graduate Students’ Association,
you will find specialist programs and
support to enhance your time at the
University.
The cohort experience has developed as
an area of focus of the graduate experience
at Melbourne along with career support
programs, internships and mentorships
offered through our graduate schools.
Coursework students will learn from
leading industry figures and internationally
renowned academics from pre-eminent
research centres. This is supported by
first-class facilities with access to social
spaces, meeting rooms and technological
resources.
As a research student, you will be presented
with access to international networks of
scholarships available through one of
the largest research and development
organisations in Australia. You will have
the opportunity to contribute to the latest
developments in a myriad of exciting areas
of research and to benefit from a range
of targeted support and professional
development programs provided by the
School of Graduate Research.
Graduate study presents an intellectually
rewarding phase of your life, providing
you with unprecedented opportunities
to challenge yourself and to develop
academically. I invite you to consider the
University of Melbourne as your first choice
for graduate study, confident you will find
the intellectual and academic stimuli to
