Teacher's Prospects edition
As 2014 draws to a close, our new-look Prospective Students Office (PSO) team is forging ahead with plans for 2015, which is already gearing up to be one of our busiest yet. Not only is the office relocating later this month, but some new (and familiar) staff members have (re)joined our team in recent weeks...
We recently welcomed back Ruth Kastrati from parental leave, and in the process, bid a fond farewell to Danica van de Velde, who is (thankfully) not too far away in her new role at University Hall. Also, following a brief secondment to another area of the University, we are delighted to have Alison Chan back in the team as of today. Naseem Mkandawire has been enjoying an extended overseas holiday, and will return next week, refreshed and ready for a busy 2015.
Narelle Molloy and Julie Peterkin continue to share the PSO Manager role, although Julie is looking forward to taking some well-deserved long service leave in the first few months of 2015.
Jacqui Baker, who is job-sharing the PSA role with Ruth, recently joined us from the Postgraduate Admissions processing team. She is super friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and very much looking forward to getting out on the road in her new role as a Prospective Student Adviser. Jacqui is also currently studying the Juris Doctor on a part-time basis.
To further expand our expertise in all things postgraduate, the PSO has also extended its team to welcome Ilse Lorenzen (Events and Marketing Co-ordinator, Postgraduate Admissions) and Donna Shaw (Digital Communications Officer), who were both previously aligned under Postgraduate Admissions.
We are currently finalising our 2015 event schedule, and with the diary already starting to fill up, it's never too early to start booking your school visits and expos with us.
Along with our friendly and knowledgeable Admissions Centre staff, the Prospective Students Office is here to help, so please don't hesitate to call to book a visit; or make enquiries about admission requirements, UWA courses, and prospective student events:
