    Invasion Day.

    Federation was declared on January 1st, so shouldn't "Australia Day" also be on the same day? People I've spoken to make the argument "yeah, but at least we get another holiday". That's not the point... January 26th was to do with First Fleet and so the day should be named after that. If...

    Better than UWS?

    What it comes down to is whether the Institute of Teachers recognises the course as being suitable for Accreditation. And all of ACU's courses do, so in the end the name of the course has little to say about what you learn about and whether you are more or less suitable for the teaching...

    Primary School Teaching

    -what are the advantages/disadvantages to teaching primary? Advantages include being able to teach students on a range of different areas, topics, subjects, etc. Also the age (I believe) is better than high school because you can usually have more of an influence. Disadvantages would be the...

    Need help with choosing uni for teaching!!!

    Just like I was told that ACU wasn't a 'real' uni :lol: I have really enjoyed my time there, and I think I am very equipped for my career. It's all about personal preference. Personally, I went for somewhere that wasn't going to be daunting (we only have about 2600 people at Strathfield)...

    difference between M teaching and B education

    I'm no expert but a Masters degree is a Postgraduate degree (meaning you need an undergraduate degree to do it), and a Bachelor of Education is the undergraduate version, where you don't need a previous degree. Either way can lead you to becoming a teacher. Were you looking at any course /...

    B Education Degree at UTS,USYD,UNSW

    The Catholic system is managed by the CEO (Catholic Education Office) of the diocese in which the school is placed. In Sydney and metropolitan areas you have the Sydney CEO, Parramatta, Broken Bay and Wollongong. The difference with employment in Catholic schools is that there is no...

    I'm not sure of the course, but I have been to the campus in Melbourne - it's pretty awesome. Strathfield campus has an older, more "traditional" feel to it, while Melbourne is a contemporary building minutes from the city. If you can get yourself down to Melbourne for their Open Day, that...

    Teaching computers at ACU

    There is a BT/BA Course in Technology but I'm pretty sure it covers the Design and Technology subjects also. I would have a look at the website to see the types of majors you could do in the course. Better yet, come along to Open Day to find out more! :)

    Rural Students

    Usually these types of programs apply to people who want to attend their "feeder" uni. I'm not entirely sure about ACU's rural admittance procedures, I would suggest calling the Admissions centre for more information.

    Strathfield Open Day

    Not for everyone, admittedly, but going to ACU has been the best decision I have made with my education. The campuses are great - small, friendly and you actually get to know people *gasp!* than become a number in a crowd. I strongly suggest you visit us on Open Day to get a good feel for...

    Environmental Science? ? ? ? ? ?? ?

    I suggest looking at ACU's website for details about North Sydney's Open Day. You will get a good feel for the campus and get to speak to students and staff about the course you are interested in. Good luck!

    Do you have to do English advanced to be able to apply to ACU in canberra?

    One way to find out would be to ring the Admissions centre at the uni. Usually if it's listed you will need it. However, there may be other ways around it.

    B Education Degree at UTS,USYD,UNSW

    Interesting, because I have a DET scholarship and I don't see it as "selling 3 years of my life." I see it as a wonderful opportunity to grow professionally, personally and teach students who deserve the highest quality education. To the thread starter, I'll still say - do your research...

    Do you have to be religious to go to ACU?

    Hi Ashlea, Not everyone is religious at ACU and it's completely up to you if you decide to participate in the religious/spiritual events that happen on campus. Even so, ACU is dedicated to social justice and ethics, so social work is highly regarded. Another thing is to consider whether...

    Who regrets choosing SOC+CUL?

    What annoyed me was the fact that i never found out how well my PIP did! But must have been pretty good.

    Mature Age at ACU

    i asked one of my friends. She didn't even do the STAT test - she contacted the uni directly, wrote a letter to them explaining why she wanted to be in the course and had to do an interview. She then got an Early Round offer for a HECS spot in the course!

    Mature Age at ACU

    I'm not a mature age student but I have a few friends who are. I will ask them how they did it. I think one of them did the STAT test then applied through the uni, filled out an application (outlining why you wanted to do the course, what previous experiences you had, etc.) and went to an...
