Is Medicine the right choice for you?

Many people expect students who receive the highest grades to become doctors. It is true that getting good grades is definitely a prerequisite for a medical degree, however, it is not the most important factor when choosing to study medicine. If you find yourself pursuing a medical degree because of your family’s expectations or the benefits and money that comes along with the job, we encourage you to rethink your decision. 
Despite the benefits that come along with a medical career, it is extremely time consuming, demanding and expensive to pursue a degree in medicine.. 

The following are a few reasons as to why you should or should not study Medicine. 

Reasons you should study Medicine

Reasons you should not study Medicine

If you are passionate about Medical Science

If your parents and family are pressuring you

You want to help improve people’s health and lives

If you think you will earn a lot of money (Med School is quite expensive)

You have high tolerance when dealing with people around you

You prefer to work alone

You are good at critical thinking and problem solving

You cannot work under stress and have low tolerance when communicating with others

You have traits and skills such as : Self-control, attention to detail, stress tolerance, investigative and social

Because you are the top student in your class/school/state

Willing to make temporary sacrifices for the purpose of your studies and future career

To impress family and friends.

The above reasons are a few of many, if you find yourself familiar with the “reasons you should not study medicine” section of the table, rethink your decision and choose a course that is best suited to your skills and future aspirations.

You will need to provide your name, your email address and phone number. 

Once you’ve submitted your application, you will be given a Transaction Reference Number (TRN) to track your application status online.

Make Sure You Applied for an Institution

Before applying for a student visa, you must have applied for an institution for you studies, and be accepted. This is because you will need your proof of enrolment  (your Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment) as part of your application document. 

If you are going to commit to 2 or more programmes, for example, you’ve applied for an undergraduate degree and an English proficiency programme, you are required to have proof of enrolment for each.

The Documents You’ll Need

Firstly, you must make sure everything is in digital format. Furthermore, the documents you need is different depending on your nationality and the course you choose to study. So make sure you confirm this with your education counselor, or you can ask us.

Generally, you will need:

  • Proof of enrolment (your Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment) for each of the programmes you’re studying
  • Your health insurance (Overseas Student Health Cover) policy details
  • Your Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) statement
  • Evidence of your English skills 
  • Statement of purpose
  • Evidence of financial ability (tuition fees, living expenses, expenses for dependents, return airfare).
  • A valid passport
  • Visa application fee
  • Academic and work experience documents
  • Parental consent if you are under 18 years old

When to apply?

Your application should be submitted no later than 6 weeks before the start of your programme, and no earlier than 12 weeks.

Some regulations to uphold

Even though you have successfully gotten your student visa, there are a few conditions to maintain so your visa can remain valid: 

  • Must remain enrolled and maintain satisfactory  grades and attendance throughout your course
  • Provide the address of your residence to your university or college (and update them a new one if you move)
  • Be able to financially support yourself throughout the duration of your stay in Australia
  • Do not breach the working terms of your visa

If you wish to change the qualifications of your visa, you can ask your school’s counsellor for that information, and prepare the necessary documents. There may also be an interview held for the student visa change, so you should prepare for that as well.

Study Accounting & Finance in Australia 2020

Sharing is caring :)

Overview: What’s the Difference?

In essence, the main difference between Accounting and Finance is that accounting focuses on past records and present reports, then using the information to assess a business’ financial position; while finance deals with using these financial records to for future financial planning, investment decisions and drive new business strategies. Even so, universities’ finance and accounting degrees infuse both elements as they relate closely to each other.

How to Choose the Right Course for You

Sharing is caring :)

Choosing a course can be extremely stressful, and maybe even daunting at most times. What if it is the wrong choice? What if I can’t find a job? Believe me, as a current student who – finally – chose a degree to study, I know how you feel. Despite all that, I am completely happy with what I am currently studying, and I will tell you how I make that right decision.

1. Pay Attention to What You Do

In essence, this means paying attention to your interests, what skills do you possess, and what you are good at. It can be as simple as considering which class was your favourite in high school.

For example, if you enjoyed chemistry, look at university courses which put a lot of emphasis on chemistry courses, like chemical engineering, or petroleum engineering. You may even consider the sports and health division if P.E. was you strongest suit, there will always be a place in this world for you!

Making this decision does not solely rely on practical skills, it can be soft skills too! For me, I realized I am quite outgoing and make friends a lot, I am observant and opinionated, which is why I chose Bachelor of International Communications.

Looking beyond that, consider yourself: are you a person who holds attention to detail? Then you may consider accounting, actuarial, or courses that deal with numbers and logic. Are you a spontaneous person who does not care for rigid rules and factors? Then you may take a look at dynamic courses like economics, or arts.

2. Consider Your Budget

And of course, what is tertiary education if it does not drain your pockets?

Generally, the course fees play a huge factor in which university you choose, and even what education pathway you may take.

For instance, if you have a lower budget, you may consider taking the local government backed STPM, where they will ensure a smooth transition into a local public university. 

For most private universities, their course fees are based on their global rankings. Hence, a course or its university may be more expensive if they hold a higher rank.

Even so, just because a university has a higher ranking, does not mean it should be out of your consideration. Remember, we have to think through ALL factors to make a well-informed decision.

3. Explore Your Options as Much as Possible

In time periods like result day for pre-university exams such as A-Level or SPM, there is bound to be a lot of tertiary education events lining up. No matter if it’s education fairs, seminars, field trips, or free brochures, it is extremely important to use all the resources available to you to leverage yourself as much as possible. 

Because chances are, there will be a lot of information, and it can get overwhelming, so it is crucial you put lots of focus into sifting through all the information.

In a nutshell, flip through every brochure, utilize your time speaking to your school’s education counselors and university representatives, look at their website, ask for a universities’ current student’s opinion, go on university open days, etc. Doing all of these will definitely aid you in finding out your next step, or at least narrowing down to a few viable options to consider.

4. Think About How Versatile is the Degree

If you are absolutely sure about what career path you’re taking, then go for a course that covers a specific major. Otherwise, you can consider going for a generalised version of a course.

For example, if you’re sure you want to do marketing for business in the future, then choose marketing as your major, but if you aren’t sure which specialisation to take, then consider taking a general business degree, which includes a little of everything.

That way, you can acquire different skills and make a well-informed decision when getting a job. 

Many people may think future careers should be the basis of choosing your future degree, but that is not entirely true.

What you study may not necessary define what you do in the future, if you have a marketing degree, some of the skills you acquired can translate into other business departments, or even go into the creative industry.

As a result, going into university is all about learning what skills you wish to acquire, rather than choosing a job, so think about that!

5. Compare the Same Courses from Different Universities

Expanding from the previous point, some universities may give their degree a general name even though they emphasise on a specialisation.

For instance, you are interested in Bachelor of Science in Psychology from a particular university. Though their Bsc in Psychology may focus more on cognitive psychology, rather than clinical psychology which you would prefer more. 

In a nutshell, please pay attention to the classes in a course from different universities if you manage to narrow down your options. Perhaps this last factor may tip the scales in making a decision.

6. A Secret Tip: Contact us!

We understand that choosing a course can be a very long process, which is why we will not hesitate to help! Our professional education consultants know the ins and outs of tertiary education, just hit us up for any enquiries and we can ensure you a bright future ahead.

Study Mechatronics in Engineering in Australia 2020

Sharing is caring :)

New Age

As you may be familiar, the world is in its post-industrial revolution stage. A post-industrial society means putting prominence on providing services instead of goods, valuing knowledge more than physical labour in human capital, and above all, behavioural and information technology is being rapidly developed.

Which is why you’ll see communications degree start to include social media in their syllabus, business degrees incorporates e-marketing, and medical degrees urge their students into using more computerised medical technologies.   

Mechatronic and AI

In this respect, you can ride the information technology revolution wave too! By undertaking a mechatronics specialisation in an engineering degree, you will learn the fundamentals of mechanics, electronics and computing, thus combining them to create and improve technical systems and machinery. 

You will most likely learn about creating ‘Artificial Intelligence’ (AI), which is extremely prevalent in the current information technology era. As it is the core component in making existing technology ‘smarter’, pushing our common tools and appliances towards automatic functioning. AI can help in the smallest and simplest way possible, such as an autofocus camera, or a clothes dryer that can detect humidity to estimate how long it needs to dry all your clothes.
