This could include

  • people seeking asylum in Australia;

The clinic will also be able to provide basic advice on Skilled Independent visas, Skilled Sponsor visas, student visas, graduate visas, partner visas, parent visas and other family visas.

“The Immigration Law system is complex and complicated, particularly for those with limited English, lack of finances or other vulnerabilities,” said migration agent Iracema Brunton who will set up and supervise the new clinic, in coordination with fellow migration agent, Rochelle James.

“Our team of specialist immigration agents and legal representatives, working in partnership with Bond University’s academics and law students, will be able to provide the most up-to-date advice on a range of visas issues and other referrals to relevant community organisations.”

Academic coordinator, Lindsey Stevenson-Graf says that the Clinic will also give students an opportunity to develop their practical lawyering skills.

“The clinic experience will give our students vital insights into the legal challenges faced by some of our most vulnerable new Australians, as well as allowing them to practice and improve their ‘people skills’ by dealing with real-life clients,” she said.

“There is also an opportunity for our students to take on specific cases, working on legal strategies and finding solutions, under the guidance of the supervising migration agents and qualified lawyers.”

University of Queensland encourages sign-up to campus safety

Studying abroad can cause some anxiety, especially for parents of international students!

Have no fear if you’re at UQ, or planning to attend UQ. The University of Queensland works hard to ensure the safety of all students, staff and visitors who attend its campuses.

UQ is encouraging new and returning students and staff to sign up to the SafeZone smart phone app designed to improve safety and security across all campuses. The app connects students and staff directly to the UQ Security team or emergency services for on-campus first-aid or emergencies, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“The GPS-based app has been incredibly popular since its launch, with almost 8000 registered users,” he said.

“It now has new features, including an after-hours timer for those wanting to work late with confidence they will be monitored to reach their transport safely; and real-time campus safety bus tracking to allow people to time their exit to coincide with the arrival of the safety bus.

“The app is available at UQ’s St Lucia, Gatton and Herston (excluding RBWH) campuses and the Long Pocket, PACE, Pinjarra Hills, Indooroopilly Mine and Moreton Bay Research Station sites, providing the user has mobile phone or WiFi coverage,” Mr Dickson said.

“It’s designed to enhance emergency response and communication during critical incidents such as lockdowns and natural disasters by sending notifications to users’ mobile devices.”

SafeZone uses location-based tracking, but does not track a user’s location until an emergency alarm is activated or a call is made for help or first-aid.

“If the app is activated on one of our campuses then the campus security team will respond to the alarm or call,” Mr Dickson said.

If it’s activated at sites without 24-hour security—Long Pocket, PACE, Pinjarra Hills, the Indooroopilly Mine and the Moreton Bay Research Station—it will dial 000 (same as 911 in North America) to connect the user directly with emergency services.

SafeZone complements a range of security measures, including 788 security cameras, 72 emergency call points, a night safety bus service at St Lucia, night escorts, 24-hour security patrols and published preferred paths for after-dark travel.

Melbourne veterinary school announces redevelopment plans

New Melbourne Veterinary School students beginning in 2019 will be pleased to hear of the upcoming redevelopment plans for the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Science and the Faculty of Science—that means brand new, purpose-built facilities!

New development in Werribee

The University of Melbourne has recently announced that it will be redeveloping its Werribee campus to create a state-of-the-art facility for clients, students, staff and wider community. The planned new five-storey learning and teaching building will improve the delivery of the university’s world-class veterinary education, and will house cutting-edge equipment and purpose-built spaces, including sitting areas open to the public and a new café.

Part of the redevelopment also includes the upgrade to the U-Vet Animal Hospital, which provides world-class treatments for pets as well as the best possible hands-on clinical experience for veterinary students.

Along with new landscaped gardens with improved pedestrian access and an upgraded parking area, there will also be a new emergency section with separate waiting areas for different species and additional consultation rooms.

Throughout the construction, U-Vet will continue to operate 24-hours and provide the same high-quality medical care for animals. Learning, teaching and research activities will also continue. Any changes will be clearly signed and alternative parking will be provided.

The Werribee Redevelopment has been designed in consultation with veterinarians with expertise in animal behaviour. The project aligns with the aspirations of the University of Melbourne and the Victorian Planning Authority and Wyndham City Council.

Western Edge Biosciences project

In tandem with the Werribee project, the Western Edge Biosciences Stage 1 project will, for the first time, bring together the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Science, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, and the Faculty of Science into one cohesive precinct.

This world-class building will provide an active and flexible learning environment that has been designed specifically to suit the biosciences. Housing purpose-built wet and dry teaching labs, and various formal and informal learning spaces, the building allows for several classes to run simultaneously within the same area.

The corner of Tin Alley and Royal Parade will be revitalised by the new precinct for future bio scientists, vets and doctors. The precinct has been architecturally designed to reflect the theme of biosciences throughout.

With a rich façade and a welcoming natured-based design, the design aims to blend the interior and exterior spaces. The impressive landscape design references the university’s historical System Garden, which will be visible from the informal areas inside.

The WEBS Parkville program has been undertaken in close collaboration with the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Science and the Faculty of Science, including user groups with representatives from each faculty.

Both projects are expected to be completed and ready for teaching in Semester 1, 2019.

By studying these programs as a dual, students will acquire two degrees in a shorter time frame than if studying them individually. They can also be taken as separate 18-month programs if preferred.

These two cognate degree programs each have a distinctive focus. The Master of International Relations degree provides students with an advanced understanding of key issues and challenges in contemporary world politics, international security, foreign affairs and global, international and regional governance. It provides students with an opportunity to develop skills in international political analysis, political risk evaluation, and in addressing bilateral, regional and global policy objectives.

The Master of Peace and Conflict Studies builds knowledge of the forces that generate contemporary conflict and the process and practices that contribute to conflict prevention, resolution and peace-building. It also equips students with practical skills to engage in conflict analysis and resolution, peacekeeping and peace building in the contemporary global context.

The program is delivered by the UQ Graduate Centre in Governance and International Affairs, a school that is recognised internationally and nationally as a leader in both international relations and peace and conflict studies research and teaching. You will have access to world-class teachers and researchers who are in touch with industry partners and participate in regular public commentary and debate in their fields. You can also gain hands-on experience through the internship program—an opportunity to work closely with an organisation in Australia or overseas.

Studying this dual master program will provide you with a global perspective and with the advanced analytical and practical skills to prepare you for your future career. Graduates have gone on to work in areas such as diplomacy, government, think-tanks, the UN and non-governmental organisations as well as the media.

Location: Brisbane, Queensland
Intakes: February and July each year

Professor Perkins said he looked forward to working with his colleagues to build on the school’s current international standing in the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities.

“I would like to maintain the school’s record as the preferred choice for the very best students and staff from Australia and across the world,” Prof Perkins said.

Originally from southwest Queensland, Professor Perkins completed his veterinary science degree at UQ in 1984, earning first-class honours and a University Medal. This was followed by a Master of Science at The Ohio State University and a PhD in veterinary epidemiology at Massey University, New Zealand.

He has practiced as a veterinarian in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria and has worked as a veterinary academic clinician at university veterinary schools in the USA, New Zealand and Australia.

Professor Perkins has held leadership roles including as Group Leader of the EpiCentre, an internationally acclaimed epidemiology research and consultancy centre within the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Science, Massey University, New Zealand.

He was research program manager for the Horse R&D Program within the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (now AgriFutures Australia); and surveillance program coordinator for the Australian Biosecurity Co-operative Research Centre.

Professor Perkins was Chief Examiner of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and Director of AusVet Animal Health Services, a private Australian epidemiology consulting company operating in many countries around the world.

“The school has great facilities and caseloads and fantastic students and staff,” Prof Perkins said. “My predecessors, acting head Associate Professor Jenny Seddon and former head Professor Glen Coleman have left the school in great shape and I look forward to continuing this success.”

UWA Medical School Mentoring Program

What is the UWA Medical School Mentoring Program?

The UWA Medical School has the only longitudinal mentoring program in Australia, whereby all medical students have a clinical mentor involved in the student’s professional development for the duration of the course. This program has been a popular feature of the student experience for many years from MBBS to the new MD course.

UWA Medical School Mentoring Program

Study medicine at UWA

Clinical mentors are usually qualified medical doctors who altruistically dedicate some of their time to meet with medical students so that a productive mentoring relationship can develop. Just as it is essential for a medical graduate to know how to diagnose or treat an illness, they need to graduate with the professional skills that are required as an intern and beyond. The qualified doctors’ role as a mentor is to help ensure that their students have addressed and reflected on many of these areas in their professional development throughout the MD course and beyond.

Since the MD course commenced, students have the opportunity to nominate those mentors who they feel have been outstanding for a Dean’s Letter of Commendation. This year, Professor Brendan McQuillan, Head of the Medical School, presented these awards at the annual Clinical Mentor evening held in the newly refurbished Medical and Dental Library.

The Medical School wishes to thank all the clinical mentors for their dedication and altruism in supporting the professional development of the next generation of doctors.

About the UWA Doctor of Medicine degree

The Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at the University of Western Australia is a highly integrated and contextualised course with many innovative features to equip graduates with the capabilities to work as a doctor in Australian and around the world.

The overall aim of the program is to prepare students to become accountable, scholarly, capable and caring doctors, committed to the well-being of the patient, of the community and of society. This includes teaching in professionalism, leadership, advocacy, education and scholarly practice.

Program: Doctor of Medicine (MD)
Location: Perth, Western Australia
Semester intake: January
Duration: 4 years
Application deadline: May 30, 2018
