Oil rigs and artificial reefs are often given a bad rap for
their environmental impact but they may be playing a vital role in feeding one
of Australia's largest sea creatures, still recovering from centuries of
hunting by humans, new research led by Deakin scientists has found.
Part of a significant donation of $4 million by former staff member and Magistrate, Ms Francine McNiff, The University of Melbourne has established the Francine V. McNiff Chair in Criminology, a first for the institution. Professor Alison Young has been appointed in this role.
A series of Discover FedUni Info Sessions hosted by Federation University Australia kicks off next week as part of an exciting state-wide campaign to encourage a mid-year start to studies.
Discover FedUni will take place in seven major regional centres, allowing prospective students to learn about the wide range of courses commencing at FedUni in late July.
“The University is really looking forward to this campaign as we are travelling direct to where our potential students live to talk with them about our mid-year programs,” Phill Crone, Acting Marketing Director, said.
“The itinerary covers the whole of the state from Warrnambool to Bairnsdale.”
A team of 10 university staff will be on hand to advise and answer questions about study options.
“Students can even commence the application process during the info session if they wish,” Mr Crone said.
“The Discover FedUni Info Sessions are aimed at anyone thinking of study as well as students who may have deferred or started at another University and found it wasn’t quite their fit.”
Mr Crone said mid-year enrolment was often a better alternative for many people who were traditionally busy with children returning to school and other commitments in the first half of the year.
“Beginning university mid-year is a great option, as it allows you to get six months study completed before the next year,” he said.
“There is no time like the present, so we encourage people to grab this opportunity, come down and meet us in a friendly, relaxed and familiar environment.
“You can drop in for five minutes or stay for the whole evening. The choice is yours.”
Registration is not required for the Discover FedUni Info Sessions. You can attend at any time during the night and families are more than welcome.
The Discover FedUni Info Sessions will include important information about:
