From 2012, UWA will offer undergraduate students a choice of five new degrees. These will replace our existing undergraduate courses but a broad range of disciplines (subjects) will continue to be offered within them. The new courses are designed to provide you with the opportunity to study a broader range of subjects, develop valuable skills in communication and research, and have time to work out what you are passionate about before making decisions about study pathways and careers.
A great way to find out more about the area you're interested in studying is to speak to people who are already studying it, and to check out the facilities these students use in their course. You'll get to do all of this - and much more - if you attend UWA's A Day in the Life of an Engineering Student or A Day in the Life of an Environmental Science Student.
Do you have a passion for fast cars, engineering, building things or being number one? Or do you simply want to learn more about one of the fantastic projects you can get involved in as a UWA student? If you answered yes (and even if you didn't!) then head on down to the UWA Science Library, located at the UWA Crawley campus, before 14 April to visit the UWA Motorsport Exhibition.
The School of Indigenous Studies (SIS) at UWA has two upcoming residential camps for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students; the Health & Science Workshop, and the annual Year 12 Seminar.
Two UWA students have been awarded Rhodes Scholarships to study at the University of Oxford in England.
If you've ever visited UWA for a school excursion, you may have met Dustin Stuart, one of the tour guides in the Prospective Students Office. Having completed a Bachelor of Science (Advanced Science Program) last year, Dustin won the 2009 Rhodes Scholarship for WA and plans to study a PhD in laser physics.
Studying medicine can be challenging, rewarding, demanding and time consuming, but it also provides you with the unique opportunity to make a real difference to people's lives. In this edition of Prospects we speak to Vinay Menon, a 6th year medicine student who's managed to fit quite a lot in to his time at UWA!
