什么是心理学?

心理学一词源自于希腊文,意思是关于灵魂的科学。灵魂在希腊文中也代表着气体或呼吸,古人认为生命依赖于呼吸,呼吸停止也代表着生命的完结,之后随着科学的发展,心理学的对象从灵魂转为心灵。

根据美国心理学会的定义,心理学是一门关于人类思想和行为的研究。简单来说,心理学研究个人以及群体之间的互动,为了能更好地了解人与人之间、社会和社区当中的运作以及找出更好的交流方式。

心理学系学科

心理学系当中有不少学科,而其中最常见的有:

相信你也曾听说不少有关心理学这门课程,并且也看过不少相关的电影,例如《美丽心灵》、《斯坦福监狱实验》和《盗梦空间》。要是你不确定你是否适合读心理学,你可以根据以下的5个特征做出一些自我反思,来看看它是否符合你,再做出之后的决定。

在决定学习心理学前所必须具备的5个条件

1. 你是一位很好的聆听者

你朋友总称赞你是一位很好的聆听者。不仅如此,当你身边的亲朋好友遇到问题时,他们都会第一时间找你,告诉你他们所正在面临的问题。他们对你十分信任,并不怕把秘密告诉你。

2. 你善于和别人打交道

你喜欢与他人交流,围绕在他人的身边能让你感受到满满的能量。你喜欢听别人分享他们的故事以及生活背景,并不是因为你想要窥探他人,而是因为你想要更深一步的了解他们。此外,你也十分享受与他人之间有更深层的对话。

3. 你思想开明,并且客观

你总在倾听朋友们分享生活点滴和问题,但你从不指责他们,反而会接受能真正面对自己的人。你试图了解他们的立场以及为何他们会有那些想法和做出那些举动。

4. 你善于分析

你善于观察他人、注意别人的性格特质以及很容易地就把一些小细节给记住。你喜欢学习,对他人的行为特质保持着好奇心,并且喜欢把不一样的人物特质和行为拼凑在一起。

5. 你有自信地与他人沟通

你可以很有自信地表达你的想法、你的观察、以及你的知识。你能够轻易地分享你得出的结论且传达给身边的人,尤其是你的亲朋好友。

如果你具备以上的特质,那么心理学对你而言可能会是个正确的选择!

Australia has one of the most dynamic FinTech industries with over 800 FinTech companies based in the country. In 2014, it was estimated that the Australian FinTech industry would experience a steep growth from $250 million to $4 billion in 2020. 

In order to give interested students the opportunity to be a part of this growing industry in Australia and worldwide, a number of top Australian education institutions have developed programs tailored towards the FinTech industry. 

Down below, explore what the FinTech industry is all about and everything you need to know before you take your first step into a career in the FinTech industry. 

What is FinTech?

Financial Technology or FinTech refers to the use of digital technologies to offer financial services and products. The introduction of technologies such as the internet, mobile and cloud computing has dramatically changed several sectors over the past few years. 

Therefore, it can be said that the FinTech industry is all about using the advancements of technology for improved delivery of existing products and services. 

How Does FinTech Work?

We have all been familiar with some degree of technology in our financial activities in the recent decade, including mobile payments, electronic trading floors, and personal finance apps. 

The way FinTech works differ depending on the project or application. Some of the latest advancements in FinTech are utilizing the application of machine learning algorithms, blockchain and data science to do basically everything, ranging from processing credit risks to running hedge funds. 

Traditionally FinTech was only associated with the financial sector, however, it has moved beyond just a feature offered by financial institutions and is now present in a broader range of sectors with the application of cloud-based technologies that is a combination of open source software and blockchain technologies. 

Technologies that contribute to FinTech

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) – used in credit storing, fraud detection, regulatory compliance, wealth management etc. 
  • Big Data and Data Analytics – Used to develop predictive analytics such as consumer behaviour. 
  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – used in statistics and data collection, regulatory compliance management, communication and marketing through chatbots, transaction management. 
  • Blockchain Technology – used to securely store sensitive data and transactions, to reduce cyberattacks. Blockchain is also the backbone of many cryptocurrencies. 

Examples & Uses of Fintech

Fintech is used in a wide range of areas around the world. The most common areas include:

  1. Crowdfunding Platforms

Crowdfunding platforms such as KickStarter and GoFundMe allow entrepreneurs and start-up businesses to raise funds from all parts of the world and reach investors and markets all around the world without having to be geographically constrained.

      2. Mobile Payments  

One of the most common uses of FinTech that we all use in our everyday life is mobile payment gateways and applications. Such services allow customers to do financial activities without having to visit the bank physically, all thanks to FinTech. 

      3. Robo Advisors

Robo Advisors refer to online investment management services that use algorithms to allow users to engage in investment activities with minimal manual effort at low fees. 

     4. Insuretech

The Fintech industry offers an intensive range of career opportunities, from Retail Banking, Online Payment & Transfer, Loaning & Financing, Wealth Management, to Insurance, all of which connect all financial activities we are involved in. 

  • Drastic changes in traditional finance industries

The traditional business skills are now going obsolete and replaceable with the new technologies that have emerged over the recent years. Moreover, International Financial sectors are adopting FinTech approaches and hiring more FinTech talents around the globe. 

  • Boost your creative thinking skills and decision making skills 

These days, when making financial decisions, for perhaps, investments, it is very common to get the help of Artificial Intelligence to make more “rational” decisions for us. This could not be possible without the backup for Financial Technologies and of course, FinTech professionals. 

  • The growth of the FinTech industry worldwide

The FinTech industry is undoubtedly growing exponentially all over the world, including Australia. The Fintech adoption in Australia has nearly quadrupled in the last four years, from 16 percent to 60 percent between 2015 and 2020.

Top 10 Universities to Study Marketing Degree in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

Marketing is one of the most exciting courses you can study with tons of job opportunities in every sector you can think of.  A marketing team is a primary part of every company or brand. To put it in a fancier way, the doors a marketing degree will open for you is endless.

However, before pursuing any degree it is important to ponder over whether it is the right course for you. Down below, we have provided for you, all the answers you might need to answer this question.

What is Marketing?

Marketing is basically about the communication of a brand and the value of its products or services to consumers and customers, for the purpose of selling the product or service. The ultimate goal of marketing for any brand is to boost sales. 

In the past, marketing was done through word of mouth and it all depended on who could shout the loudest and was the most persuasive. To this day, the theory behind marketing remains the same, however the methods have changed immensely considering the digitalization of the world. 

Why Study Marketing?

To answer the question of whether you should pursue a career in marketing, you should ask yourself a series of sub-questions. 

  • Is Marketing right for you?

Just as any other career, marketing is not for everyone. You need to possess a set of qualities that match with the skills you need to become a successful marketer. Although marketers do come from different backgrounds, there are some personality traits they tend to have in common;

  • Creative and self-motivated
  • Persuasive and approachable 
  • Able to work in a team
  • Detail-oriented and efficient 
  • Able to make last minute changes
  • Able to be both a leader and a follower
  • Up To-date on trends
  • Able to understand customer needs

The list of course doesn’t end here, but now you have an idea of the basic qualities you need to possess. 

  • Is it a career you will enjoy? 

A typical marketing job involves data collecting, budgeting and developing marketing strategies. The aspect of marketing that most people find exciting however is, coming up with creative marketing campaigns. You must have come across successful marketing campaigns by big brands such as Nike. For example, Nike’s “Find Your Greatness” Campaign, which was focused on identifying with the inner athlete in you, since most of Nike’s customers are not professional athletes, rather normal people who are into sports wear. 

As a marketer, coming up with engaging and thought provoking campaigns like this will be a big part of your job. Whether you find this enjoyable or not however, really depends on you. 

What Will You Study in a Degree in Marketing?

Marketing covers a variety of areas ranging from advertising to market research and business administration. This will help you further your studies in areas such as business and advertising, which is why it is an attractive course for many students.

Listed below are the main subjects you will cover in a marketing degree: 

  • Principles of Marketing 
  • Consumer behaviour
  • Business Law
  • Integrated Marketing Communications
  • Market Research
  • Services Marketing
  • Retail Marketing

What are the Career Opportunities for a Marketing Graduate?

Marketing graduates do not have any difficulty thriving in different industries, if they have the right mindset and ability to adapt and learn. 

Listed below are some of the common career opportunities for marketing graduates:

  • Marketing Executive 
  • Brand Executive 
  • Customer Relations Associate
  • Business Development Executive
  • Market Researcher

Becoming a Lawyer in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

The study of law is the study of a system where a framework of rules is created and enforced through governmental or social institutions, varying from institutions or countries to regulate behaviour and ensure a fair, safe and equal world. 

Lawyers generally provide legal advice to clients (individuals or organizations) when legal advice or assistance is required. Tasks and duties done by lawyers include: conducting research on the case, arranging witnesses, preparing  and reviewing contracts, drawing up claims, acting as executor of will and representing clients in court (just to name a few)!

Different Types of Law

Types of Law   

Specialization 

Criminal Law 

Finding and punishing individuals who have broken the law – uncover the true perpetrator of a crime and bring justice to the victim of that crime 

Corporate Law 

Ensuring businesses adhere to the set local and federal regulations in their operations 

International Law 

Governs the interactions between different countries in ensuring safety of citizens 

Commercial Law 

Deals with commerce, trade and consumer transactions, including bankruptcy, contracts, mortgages, real estate 

Family Law 

Handles family relationships including divorce, child custody, adoption, child abuse or domestic violence 

Constitutional Law 

Legal proceedings related to upholding or interesting the constitution of the country including civil rights and freedom of speech 

Labour Law 

Focuses on relationships between employers and employees including ensuring employees are not being exploited, governing collective bargaining and benefits dispute 

Intellectual property law 

Protects creators from copyright infringement including intangible creative works that are protected by copyrights or trademarks 

Steps to Become a Practicing Lawyer in Australia

To become a Lawyer in Australia you will need to go through multiple steps: 

1.  Complete a Bachelor of Law (LLB) or Juris Doctor (JD) 

To become a practicing lawyer, you would need to undertake either a Bachelor of Law (LLB) or Juris Doctor (JD). LLB is suitable for students who do not already possess a degree whilst a JD is suitable for students who already have a degree in another discipline. Typically, both of these courses take 4-5 years to complete. 

2. Complete a Practical Legal Training  (PLT)

Law graduates who wish to become certified lawyers need to undergo Practical Legal Training  otherwise known as the ‘Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice’ assessed by the Legal Admissions Board varying by each state or territory in Australia. This qualification focuses on practical skills needed to become a lawyer and can be attained within a minimum of 6 months. Another alternative option would be through the Legal Practice Experience which is an 80 day supervised legal practice with an experienced lawyer. 

3. Admission to Legal Practice 

Application to the Law Admissions Authority at the state or territories of choice to practice is then applied by law graduates within 5 years of graduation. 

4. Apply for Practicing Certificate from the local Law Society 

Final step of transition to becoming a practicing lawyer is to complete an 18 to 24 months of supervised practice before the application to the Law Society of the state for Practising Certificate. 

NOTE: Australia operates a system of Solicitors and Barristers. Once you have become a practising lawyer, you are able to decide if you want to remain as a Solicitor or move onto becoming a Barrister.

What is the difference between a Solicitor and Barristers?

Solicitor 

A solicitor is a qualified legal practitioner that works out of court. Main responsibilities of solicitors include working directly with clients in providing legal advice, writing documents and contracts, negotiating with clients, conducting research and gathering evidence. Solicitors only represent their clients in court if necessary. 

Barrister

A barrister generally focuses on litigation, which is the process of taking legal action. Main responsibility of the barrister is conducting court appearances to represent their clients. This includes presenting the case and representing and translating their client’s view into legal arguments. 

 It is important to note that in Australia, each state and territory acquires its own legal Bar authority where in order to become a Barrister, you need to gain entrance to the Bar Readers’ Course by taking the Bar exam and pass the course. It is important for you to understand that the pathway of becoming a lawyer upon graduation varies based on state or territories chosen. The process of becoming a lawyer typically requires a combination of 6-8 years of education and training.  International students wishing to work as a Lawyer in Australia need to fulfil certain requirements to be eligible to apply for the ‘Temporary Graduate Visa’ upon completion of their education. Contact us for further assistance!

Average annual salary for law graduates varies significantly depending on your job position, country or state of practice along with other external factors. However, generally- An entry-level Lawyer can expect to earn an average annual salary of around A$58,158 while a lawyer of 2-4 years of experience can expect to earn an average annual salary of around A$65,309. Mid-level & experienced lawyers with 5-20 years of experience can expect to earn from a range of $98,741 to A$117,446.

Everything You Need to Know About Studying Aviation in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

What is Aviation?

At one point or another, you must’ve wondered what it would feel like to have a career that requires you to fly high in the skies. In layman’s terms, Aviation is the study of the science behind designing and flying aircraft.

10 Different Fields of Aviation

Despite common misconceptions, a career in Aviation does not necessarily mean you will become a pilot. Here are all 10 different fields of Aviation you could potentially dive into explained : 

#1. Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineering deals with all aspects of designing and building machines that operate in the air. These engineers also work to test different prototypes to make sure that they function accordingly. Aerospace engineers design individual components for the aircraft such as the engineers, airframes, wings, landing gear, control systems and instruments. They also test the strength, reliability and durability of these components or as a whole aircraft. 

#2. Air Traffic Control

Air traffic control is a service provided in ensuring the safety of aircraft, pilots, flight attendants and passengers. Air traffic controllers are usually ground-based and communicate with pilots throughout the entire flight, providing information back and forth between incoming and outgoing flights to ensure the safe flow of all flights in the sky and avoiding any sort of collision.

#3. Aircraft Maintenance

Aircraft maintenance is the task required in maintaining the quality of the aircraft which includes ensuring the airworthiness of the aircraft by overhauling, inspection, replacement, defect rectification and the embodiments of modifications. Regular maintenance of the aircraft will extend the aircraft life to ensure that the aircraft will perform safely for an extended period of time. 

#4. Aviation Management

Aviation management is the operation of airlines, airports, aircraft manufacturers and any business related to the aerospace industry. Activities such as planning, designing, operating and maintaining aircraft and airports will be conducted. You will be provided with a deep understanding of both the land-side and air-side daily operations of running an aviation business.

#5. Aviation Safety

Aviation safety refers to the tasks of ensuring aeroplanes are free from any form of injury or loss. This industry is in direct support of the operation of aircraft, which are reduced and controlled to an acceptable level. Careers in aviation safety include aviation safety inspectors and aviation safety technicians.

#6. Cabin Crew

Cabin crew are responsible for the comfort, safety and welfare of passengers travelling on aircraft during short-haul and long-haul flights. Their roles and responsibilities include the participation in preflight briefings with pilots, conduction of preflight inspections of emergency equipment, demonstrating the use of safety and emergency equipment, ensuring passengers have met safety requirements; serving and selling food and drink; attending to passengers’ needs; reassuring passengers during the flight; administering and coordinating emergency medical care as necessary; and providing directions to passengers, including evacuation orders. 

#7. Civil & Military Aviation

Civil aviation includes all non-military aviation, including private and commercial flying. Passenger, cargo, private and commercial flights fall under civil aviation. However, military aviation is the complete opposition and referees to the use of military aircraft and other flying machines to conduct aerial warfare.

#8. Pilot Training

Pilots fly and navigate aeroplanes, helicopters and other aircraft. Besides the typical becoming an aircraft pilot, you can also consider becoming a helicopter pilot. With this, you can work and be employed by a variety of employers such as the government, tourism companies, offshore support or even under emergency medical services. 

#9. Flight Instruction

Flight instructors for aviation resemble teachers for schools. Flight instructors teach aspiring pilots how to fly using a combination of classroom simulators, and live flight instructions. These real-life simulations aid students in gaining the skills and knowledge needed with the feeling of flying a real plane without actually flying a real plane. 

#10. Aviation Transport

Aviation transportation is otherwise known as aviation logistics, this field is an incredibly crucial part of the global economy. They facilitate integration into the global economy and provide vital connectivity. It helps to generate trade, promotes tourism and creates employment opportunities.

Before considering picking a specific niche field to study, it is important for you to look into the academic and professional requirements needed in order to pursue the career after taking your degree.
