University of Melbourne welcomes Parkville station commitment

Victoria State government plans to commence work on a new multi-billion-dollar underground rail line, with a stop in Parkville, have been warmly welcomed by the University of Melbourne.

Premier Daniel Andrews this week announced the establishment of the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority, paving the way for construction of the Melbourne Metro rail tunnel.

University of Melbourne, Parkville

Learn more about the University of Melbourne

The largest rail project in the state since the City Loop, the line would have five stations in total and run underneath Swanston Street. Parkville will be joined on the line by new underground stations at Arden, CBD North, CBD South and Domain.

University of Melbourne acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Sheil congratulated the government on moving quickly to implement an election promise, which will provide a huge boost to the university and its partners.

“The university is at the heart of the largest biomedical precinct in the Southern Hemisphere that includes 10,000 staff in major teaching hospitals, medical research institutes and biotechnology companies.

“And with last year’s official opening of the Peter Doherty Institute, and the forthcoming completion of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, the area is only growing in importance.

“We are looking forward to working with the State government to enhance access for students and the Victorian community to this growing precinct which is important to Melbourne’s future,” concluded Professor Sheil.

Parkville
Parkville is the University of Melbourne’s main campus. The Parkville campus offers a variety of unique cultural, architectural and landscape features which play an important part in the history of the City of Melbourne and the story of Victoria.

About University of Melbourne prerequisites

What are prerequisites?

A prerequisite subject is a subject or sequence of subjects which must be completed before entering a course of study. Many programs at the University of Melbourne have prerequisite subjects that must be completed in order to be eligible to apply. The selection requirements for the course you are interested in will normally specify these requirements.

University of Melbourne prerequisites

University of Melbourne

The Doctor of Medicine (MD) and Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) require prerequisite subjects in anatomy, biochemistry and physiology taught at the second-year level, or equivalent.

The Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT) requires prerequisite subjects in anatomy and physiology taught at the first-year level, or equivalent.

Has Melbourne already assessed your subjects?

The University of Melbourne have assessed a large number of subjects from international and Australian universities. If the subjects you have studied are not included in the Melbourne prerequisite list, you will need to submit detailed course outlines to Melbourne to be assessed. The university will also assess combinations of subjects if you feel that you have covered the required content.

If the University of Melbourne has previously assessed your course as equivalent to their prerequisite requirements, it will be listed on the Melbourne International Prerequisites page. If you do not see your courses on this list, you will have to submit your course outlines to the university.

Must I have my subjects assessed before applying for a course?

If your subjects have not been previously assessed, it is strongly recommended that your subjects be assessed well in advance of applying.  The assessment process may be lengthy, so Melbourne recommends having your subjects assessed one year in advance of applying.

Prospective applicants for the MD, DDS or DPT should submit documentation through the Melbourne webform for assessment by April 30, 2014 if you wish to apply to the 2015 intake. Applicants who submit complete documentation by April 30 will be advised of the subject equivalent before the closing date for applications.

Melbourne Doctor of Physiotherapy meets accreditation requirements

The Australian Physiotherapy Council (APC) has made a determination that the University of Melbourne’s Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT) program has met the requirements of accreditation, and is accredited with conditions until October 30, 2015. The DPT is now listed with the Physiotherapy Board of Australia approved programs of study.

Melbourne Physiotherapy School

Study at the University of Melbourne

Remaining conditions to meet are in relation to evaluation following the first cohort of graduates. The Melbourne Doctor of Physiotherapy will have its first graduates in December 2013. As is the process with all new courses in Australia, until graduate surveys and benchmarking of first graduates is undertaken it is not possible to meet all conditions—this is why the accreditation at the University of Melbourne has “conditions” at this stage.

The University of Melbourne’s Doctor of Physiotherapy is Australia’s first three-year entry to practice graduate master’s-level program. With its first intake in 2011, the DPT creates a new benchmark in 21st century education.

Graduates from the University of Melbourne’s Doctor of Physiotherapy program are immediately employable following registration. Employers and clinicians consistently rate Melbourne physiotherapy graduates highly. Physiotherapy students will be well prepared to work in ever-changing, complex environments, where their leadership and clinical skills are in high demand. Physio graduates will have the opportunity to pursue a career in a range of health settings, including hospitals, private practice, sporting and rehabilitation facilities, community organizations or as an advisor to government or industry bodies. This degree provides opportunities for pursuing employment globally.
