Study Zoology in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

Have you been fascinated by animals and the tiniest insects or were you a fan of Steven Irwin, the man that literally lived for animals and died because of one. At first, nature might seem like a big ball of rope that is intertwined and knotted, but when you take a closer look and try to understand nature’s handiwork, you’ll understand why animals behave in a certain way or why and allows you to understand and admire nature for what it is.

In this article, we are taking the opportunity to dive deeper into nature and explain everything you need to know to become a Zoologist.

What is Zoology?

Zoologists are biologists that study various animal species. There is an excellent variety of animals and complex processes occurring within them. Zoology is known to be one of the broadest fields of science. Zoologists often study animals and their interaction with the ecosystem. They learn the animal’s physical characteristics, diets, behaviours and the impact humans have on them. There are over 2 million animal species; therefore, zoologists usually specialize in one or more of the zoology branches.

What do You Study in a Zoology Degree?

Core Subjects Taught in Zoology

  • Global Challenges in Biology: In this subject, students will be taught how human health, quality of life, and future are linked to the well being of organisms and the environment that we share. This lays the foundation for understanding and facing the environmental and biomedical challenges facing humans and the planet.

  • Zoology: Covers animals diversity and evolution. Describes the variety and life histories of animals. Students will become familiar with the body form, functions, life history, and characteristics of the animals’ major group. 

  • Animal Behaviour: Covers about animal behaviours, from developments to physiological and how patterns of behaviour evolve. Students are often asked to critically evaluate and test hypotheses about behaviour and carry out research projects on animal behaviours. 

  • Biostatistics & Experimental Design: This subject allows students to examine the process that drives plants and animals’ diversity and distribution. It covers how new species are discovered, recognized and described

Why Study Zoology in Australia?

  • Global Academic Recognition: Despite being one of the largest countries, Australia has a small nation, but that does not stop them from being the home for some of the best research institutions. Universities in Australia provide high-quality academic programs in the science field like nursing and healthcare, biology, chemistry and even zoology. 

  • Wide Choice of Subjects: Just because you have signed up for a degree in Zoology does not mean that you cannot study subjects out of the course. In Australia, students are allowed to broaden their spectrum of learning by choosing subjects not listed in the course. 

  • Language: Studying in countries where the first language is not English could be a hassle, especially when doing simple grocery shopping or even asking questions to your lecturer. However, this isn’t a problem for international students who opt to study in Australia as English is the primary language. However, students might struggle for a few months initially trying to understand the Australian slang but eventually get the hang of it.

  • Wide range of Animals & Insects: Australia is the best place to opt for if you want to pursue a Zoology course as it has a wide range of animals and insects, even some of the deadliest species can be found in Australia. Australia is the home for 21 out of 25 venomous snakes, crocodiles, poisonous spiders and also the Tasmanian devils.

What can You do with a Zoology Degree?

Career Opportunities with a Degree in Zoology

  • Zoologist: Conducts field and laboratory research, gathering pieces of information about animals in their natural habitat or in captivity 

  • Animal Nutritionist: Responsible for creating and balancing ratios to ensure all dietary needs are met for the animals under their supervision. 

  • Zookeeper: A zookeeper works with all kinds of animals, including preparing food and feeding them, checking for signs for distress, injuries or diseases in animals, helping to care for sick animals and keeping daily healthcare records. 

  • Ecologist: Studies how plants, animals and humans interact with each other. Ecologists will need good analytical skills as they will be conducting various experiments.

Do You have to Work in a “Zoo” if you Study Zoology?

Despite the name, a degree in Zoology will do more than to just qualify you to work in a Zoo. The science, research data, analysis and behavioural skills you’ll learn can make you attractive to a wide variety of organizations including charities, government agencies and research centres.

What Other Similar Degree Programs could You Take?

  • Animal Science: Is described as “studying the biology of animals under the control of humans”. Animal science is often linked between science and business producing domestic livestock, for example, sheep, cattle and swine. 

  • Animal Bioscience: The study of animals metabolism, genetic, physiology, behaviour, health and the social and environmental impact towards domestic animals.

  • Wildlife Science: Studies the native and exotic amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals and biodiversity and human-wildlife interaction. Looks at how the entire ecosystem works from the tiniest bees to the antarctic blue whale.

  • Marine Biology or Science: Focuses on marine life and organisms their behaviour and interactions with the environment. A marine biologist studies biological oceanography and the associated chemical, physical and geographical oceanography to understand marine organisms.

Study in Regional Areas in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

In recent years, more and more international students prefer to study in Regional Areas in Australia. The Australian government reported an increase of 10% of international students choosing to study in the Regional Areas in the year of 2018. Most of the students were reportedly from China, India, Nepal, Malaysia, South Korea and the United States of America.

Not only that,  Regional Australia Institute reported that about 32,000 Australian millennials moved away from big cities and started to live in the Regional Area from the period 2011 to 2016. 

But where are Regional Areas and why both Australian millennials and international students prefer to stay and study in these areas? 

List of Regional Areas in Australia

Regional Australia includes all of the towns, small cities and areas that lie beyond the major capital cities. According to the Australian Government, the areas below are the listed regional areas.

State

Areas

New South Wales

Everywhere except Sydney, Newcastle, the Central Coast and Wollongong

Northern Territory

Everywhere in the territory

Queensland

Everywhere except the greater Brisbane area 

South Australia

Everywhere in the state

Tasmania

Everywhere in the state

Victoria

Everywhere except Melbourne

Western Australia

Everywhere except city of Perth and surrounding areas

Why Study in Regional Areas in Australia?

1. Low Cost of Living

Bigger cities such as Melbourne and Sydney have a very high cost of living due to the expensive accommodation. According to news.com.au, the cost of living in Sydney, New South Wales  is AUD$ 2,681.48 while Hobart, Tasmania is only AUD$ 1,208.33. The cost difference between these 2 cities is AUD $1,473.15. So, studying in the Regional Area will definitely save you some money and you can use that to explore Australia while on summer break.

2. Enjoy the nature of Australia

You will get away from the busy lifestyle in the cities and you will enjoy the breeze of Australian beaches. You will not be pressured and stressed to follow their hectic life because you will be able to study in a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. You will be surrounded with nature yet equipped with advanced city facilities. Now it is understandable why Australian millennials chose to stay in the Regional Areas.

3. Migration Opportunities

Graduates with a bachelor or higher qualification from a regional campus of a registered institution will be eligible for an additional 2 years in Australia on a post-study work visa. This will  eventually lead to an extra 5 points on the Immigration Points Tests, which may boost your opportunity to gain Permanent Residency in Australia. To know more about the post-study work visa, contact us now!

Civil Engineering vs Architecture: Differences, Employability, & Top Universities

Sharing is caring :)

You often hear about civil engineering but unsure what the differences are with other types of Engineering, and most students would also compare the course with architecture. You are unsure which path, either civil engineering or architecture, to choose for your undergraduate degree, which one would have good employability after you graduate, these are all the questions you are probably asking yourself right now. But do not worry, we are here to help you. By the end of this article, you will know better which course to choose.

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that applies physical and scientific principles to solve problems in society. Civil engineers usually design, build, supervise, operate, construct and maintain infrastructure projects and systems. These include roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams and bridges. One famous example of civil engineers’ contribution is the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao mega bridge. This 55km bridge is the longest bridge-cum-tunnel sea crossing in the world that connects Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau.

What are Civil Engineers duties?

The usual duties of civil engineers are:

  • Analyze long-range plans, survey report, maps, and other data to plan and design projects
  • Analyze construction costs, government regulations, potential environmental hazards, and other factors during the planning and risk-analysis stages of a project
  • Compile and submit permit applications to regulatory authorities to verify that the project complies with all the required regulations
  • Oversee and evaluate the results of soil testing to determine the adequacy and strength of foundations
  • Examine the results of test on building materials such as concrete, wood, asphalt or steel, for use in projects
  • Prepare the budget for materials, equipment or labor cost to determine a project’s economic viability
  • Manage repair, maintenance, and replacement of public and private infrastructure

What are the skills required to be Civil Engineers?

Mathematical Skills

Students must have a thorough understanding of algebra, calculus, trigonometry and geometry, and even statistics. This is because the principles of Mathematics are applicable to the day-to-day duties of a civil engineer.

Organizational Skills

Civil Engineers will monitor and evaluate the progress of work completed at a job site and ensure all staff adhered to the project plans, rules and regulations, and the design documents. They often work on multiple projects at once and therefore, they must be able to organize project information, manage team members and allocate resources efficiently.

Problem Solving Skills

It is crucial to have problem-solving skills because you will be facing many challenges that require you to think out-of-the-box. You are required to use your educational background and experience to find safe and cost-effective solutions.

Leadership Skills

You will be managing your staff, planners, technicians, surveyors, and contractors, therefore, you must have strong leadership skills. You must be able to plan and prioritize, manage time effectively, and delegate duties to ensure projects run smoothly.

Oral Communication Skills

You must be able to listen to clients, officials, team members and other skilled workers to ensure their concern and request are being met. Next, you are able to explain complex technical information to people that you are working with to make sure they understand and carry the work correctly. 

What are the Career Prospects for students with a Civil Engineering degree?

  • Building control surveyor
  • CAD technician
  • Consulting civil engineer
  • Contracting civil engineer
  • Design engineer
  • Nuclear engineer
  • Site engineer
  • Structural engineer

What is Architecture?

According to Britannica.com, architecture is the art and technique of designing and building. Architects will be involved in new building designs, extensions, alterations, restorations, and conservations from the earliest stages right through to completion. They focus mainly on the designing of a building’s look and style by using their specialist construction knowledge and high-level drawing skills.

They make sure their designs are functional, safe, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing. One example of a famous building that was beautifully built in the style of French Gothic Architecture was the Notre Dame de Paris. That is why many people around the world were so saddened by the fire that struck the 857 years old cathedral. 

What are Architect duties?

The usual duties of architects are:

  • Create building designs and highly detailed drawings by hands and computer-aided design (CAD) applications
  • Write and present reports, proposals, applications and contracts
  • Adapt plans according to circumstances and resolve any problems that may arise during construction
  • Travel regularly to visit building sites, proposed locations and client meetings
  • Closely work with a team of other professionals such as building service engineers, construction managers, quantity surveyors and architectural technologists
  • Liaise with construction professionals about the feasibility of potential projects
  • Apply permission and advice about new buildings  from government and legal departments

What are the skills required to be Architect?

Design Skills

Aesthetics are the major key in architecture. Students must be familiar with architecture history, art, and style to bring it into a new building with the touch of your own creativity and style. You must be able to imagine, draft, draw, and make your arts into aesthetically beautiful buildings.

Computer Literacy Skills

Students must be able to master in many architectural drafting software such as:

  • AutoCAD
  • Computer-Aided Design
  •  Revit

Legal Knowledge

Architects need to master and grasp all legal requirements to build a building. Apart from the clients’ specifications, there are many legal regulations, codes, and policies that need to be adhered such as the Fire Safety Codes, Building Codes, and Zoning Codes.

Attention to Details

Architects’ drawings are heavily relied on as a guide by the construction workers. Therefore, all the drawings must be detailed to avoid problems and delays in the projects.

Teamwork Skills

You must be a team player because you will liaise with many people to ensure the project builds according to your design. You will be working with your internal team, construction team, clients, and surveyors. 

What are the Career Prospects for students with an Architecture degree?

  • Technical Architect
  • Design Architect
  • BIM Manager
  • Workplace Consultant
  • Project Manager
  • Interior and Spatial Designer
  • Urban Planner
  • Building Surveyor
  • Historic Buildings Inspector
