A Canadian coffee lover’s experience in Australia

“Coffee is a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.” ~ Gertrude Stein

A Canadian coffee lover's experience in Australia

Coffee in Australia is an experience to be savoured

OzTREKK Director Chris Nolan loves coffee. In fact, every time he visits “headquarters” here in Perth, he juggles multiple cups throughout the day with grin in place, eyes crinkled, and music wafting from whichever area he’s “working” in. We’ll use the term working loosely here. Mostly he’s chatting with all of us and encouraging us to stop what we’re doing to enjoy a moment of hilarity. Always a bonus, working at OzTREKK.

So, as our coffee connoisseur, Chris has noted there are some not-so-subtle differences between Canuck coffee and Aussie coffee, and for everyone heading to Oz, you’ll need to be up on your coffee vocab. We’ll let Chris explain:

I love coffee. Appreciate a well-prepared cup, sitting and savouring it while catching up on the news of the day, or in a café chatting with a friend or people watching. I am not a fancy coffee drinker who orders a low fat, triple shot, with extra hot soy milk in a small cup kind of guy, but I appreciate good coffee.

You know who else enjoys quality coffee? Aussies!

It was one of the first things I noticed about Australia my first time there: they are fanatical about their coffee. And it is very European in that regard with a focus on espresso-based coffee, likely because of the large immigration of Italians post WWII. For those of you who have been fortunate enough to visit Australia, you will know what I am talking about. For those of you who haven’t, here is some lingo to remember when ordering coffee in Oz!

You can still get a regular latté, cappuccino, mocha in most cafés, but here are three staples in Aussie coffee culture you should know about:

1. The long black – No Tim Horton’s “double doubles” here. If you are a straight-up drip-coffee kind of person, your closest thing to that would be a long black. It’s a shot of espresso with extra hot water. As a mainly drip-coffee fella, I have fallen in love with the long black.

2. The short black – Simply a shot of espresso—go figure!

3. The flat white – This would serve those well who appreciate lattés and cappuccinos, although it’s less frothy than a cappuccino. It’s an espresso shot with steamed milk. It’s popularity in Australia has made its way to cafés in North America, and it’s a regular offering on the Starbucks chalkboards. Any Australian will tell you that the Starbucks in North America don’t know what they are doing with flat whites!

When finished ordering at most cafés, you often wait at the table with a number identifying your order, and a waiter/waitress will bring it to you. You can add sugar at the table. My first few long blacks, I ordered extra milk to take the edge off!

Keep these tips in mind when you head to Australia. The Aussies love their coffee, and it’s one of the many things I enjoy about Aussie culture!

OzTREKK office closed August 7

Are you ready for the long weekend? Don’t forget that Monday, Aug. 7 is the Civic Holiday. What is that? Seriously, what is it? A short explanation is, “a day to celebrate your province!”

OzTREKK office closed August 7

Enjoy the holiday!

The Civic Holiday is celebrated on the first Monday of August and it’s a public holiday in some provinces and territories. The civic holiday is not a statutory holiday.

The Civic Holiday is commonly referred to as the August long weekend. It is probably the busiest day on highways as tens of thousands of families go camping, to cottages etc. this weekend, so drive carefully!

In honour of Ontario, the OzTREKK office will be closed Monday, Aug. 7 for the Civic Holiday but will reopen Tuesday, Aug. 8 at 8:30!

Enjoy your long weekend!

Courtney’s Australian university application survival guide

So, you’re applying to an Australian university. If you’ve applied to an Australian medical school through OzTREKK, you’ve already met Courtney.

We’ve decided to go around the OzTREKK office and have everyone offer tips and tricks for our students who are going to apply, who have applied, or who have accepted their offer to an Australian university. Here, Courtney lists some key ways students can get the most out of our services—and feel prepared when they enter the pre-departure phase!

Courtney's Australian university application survival guide

Need help with your medical school app? Contact Courtney@oztrekk.com!

Applying to study on the other side of the world is a huge deal and can bring on a whirlwind of feelings! There will certainly be times when you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, nervous—and super happy—so the following tips will help you get through the whole process in one piece!

Have questions? Be answered!
Any time you have questions, it does not hurt to ask us. That’s exactly what we are here for! Sending a quick email to your admissions officer just to confirm things is totally okay and encouraged. We want you to feel supported the whole time.

Read everything—then read it again!
Make sure you read over everything! I know when you receive an offer or an invitation it can be super exciting, but just ensure you read through the entire email or attachment so that you have all the details. We send you a ton of emails, but there is a reason for it! This is really important throughout the application process so that you don’t miss a thing!

Apply by when?
Be aware of your deadlines. I think this one speaks for itself, but it is a good reminder to keep on top of your application deadlines, offer lapse dates, and everything in between. This goes back to the “read it again” section. Our aim is to keep you 100% in the loop at all times, so nothing is missed.  🙂

Remember, we have a few hundred students going through this process with you. You are not alone! We are all here with the same goals: to get you to Australia!

There are lots of aspects that will come into play throughout the application process, but keeping these little things in mind will hopefully make the process a little bit easier for you!

How to rock your Australian medical school interview

We know that applying to an Australian medical school is a big deal, and one of the most stress-inducing parts of the process can be the interview portion!

Being prepared and having an idea of the types of questions you may be asked will certainly pay off and help you to feel more comfortable. During your medical school interview, you may encounter questions ranging from the basics like your work history and volunteer experience to more situational and behavioral questions. Here are some ways to help you rock your Australian medical school interview!

How to rock your Australian medical school interview

Are you ready for your medical school interview?

Preparation before the interview

First, what is a multi-mini interview (MMI)?
The MMI is an assessment of applicants’ personal and professional attributes. It is designed to test your reasoning and problem-solving skills in a range of areas that the school considers important in entry-level students, as well as your values and commitment. The assessment is conducted through a range of different authentic scenarios that test specific characteristics.

Set a calendar reminder
Your educational future is potentially riding on this interview! As soon as you receive the date and time for your interview, put it in your calendar and set a reminder.

#OzTREKKtip: Don’t ask them to reschedule unless it’s an emergency. Spots fill up extremely quickly and it can be difficult to juggle dozens of applicants. If you truly can’t attend your interview at the specified time, you must contact the university’s admissions office as soon as possible. They will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your needs, but cannot guarantee that an alternative interview time will be available.

Have reliable equipment and internet access
You should use the most reliable method of connection available for your interview (e.g., a wired computer connection, where possible.) Wireless connection can be used, provided that it is sufficiently reliable to complete the interview process. Imagine beginning your interview with shady internet connection—yikes!

Don’t have Skype (or the platform they will use)? Get it. Learn about it. Be prepared to know how it works. Especially learn the instant messaging button as this is where you will read the interview questions.

Practice
What is happening in the world? Find someone to discuss what is happening around you. Present your views and listen to their views. This is a great way to actually hear different sides of the same story. Practice formulating a position, practice speaking, and practice expressing your opinion! Try to avoid confrontation.

Do your homework
Familiarise yourself with the medical school. What is the school known for? Why is that a good fit for you? Are you interested in rural medicine? It’s a good idea to know the medical profession—its past, its present, its future. This shows you would like to invest your life in the field of medicine.

Questions, please
If you are invited to ask questions, have some! Be prepared to speak about yourself and your interests outside of medicine.

Who are you?
Do you have weaknesses? What are they? Are you working on them? Where do you see yourself 5, 10, 20 years from now? What makes you stand out from other applicants? (don’t brag!) Be prepared to talk about your undergrad degree.

During the interview

Be ready early
On the day of your interview, you must be ready at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled interview time. Your interview will likely last at least 45 minutes; however, you should allow at least one hour in addition to this time in case there is a delay, or there is a need to clarify a matter. Also note that there won’t be any breaks. Use the washroom beforehand. You may have a glass of water handy should you need it.

For verification purposes, you must bring photographic identification (passport or driver’s license) to the interview. Have it ready to show at the beginning of your interview. Now is not the time to go fishing through your purse or digging in your wallet.

Quiet on the set!
The last thing you want during an interview is to be distracted. Choose distraction-free place where you will have excellent internet access. Turn. Your. Cellphone. Off.

Listen 
Sometimes it can be hard to concentrate when we’re stressed, and we often blurt out the first thing that pops into our heads. Do your best to really actively listen to what’s being asked so you can answer appropriately.

Try to remain calm and speak at a moderate pace
Take a deep breath. The interviewers are people, just like you. They understand that you will be nervous and will factor that in when they interview you. Don’t lie. Answer questions as honestly as possible. If you don’t know how to answer the question, a simple “I’m not sure” is far better than a long-winded lie.

Be yourself. Putting on an act to impress people is rarely successful, is usually transparent, and is most often a turnoff. If an interviewer has a bad first impression about you, the other aspects of that particular station will likely be graded poorly. Remember, the interviewers are people too, and they are likely volunteering in the MMI process. This is especially important if you consider an interviewer may not even be listening to a word you are saying. At the end of the station, the interviewer may look back at the past 7 or so minutes, and depending on how much verbal diarrhea you may have spewed out, they may only remember how calm, collected, and eloquently spoken you are.

Dress code
This is a no-brainer. Dress appropriately. No one wants to see you just out of bed, in a T-shirt, or wearing exercise gear. You are interviewing for a professional degree!

Express yourself
The questions are not “black and white,” “right or wrong.” The interviewers are interested in your passion for medicine, your thought processes, your communication skills, and your personality. Stations can be loosely categorised into ethical-dilemma situations, teamwork-based situations, professionalism situations, differing-opinion situations, etc. Figure out what kind of general situation you are in and then present not only how you view the situation, but also from the viewpoint of bystanders and/or the opposing party. Think outside the box, but tread lightly!

Generally speaking, the medical schools will be looking for the following skills and attributes from applicants:

  1. Knowledge relevant to the question and your ability to formulate an approach to address the topic
  2. The capacity to draw implications from your knowledge
  3. Insight into you own attitudes and views (and that of others) relevant to the issue

If an interviewer interrupts at any point, stop and listen carefully to what he/she has to say. They are doing this in your favour, as you are likely veering off course in your discussion.

Whether this is your first interview or your fiftieth, a little preparation and confidence can go a long way! Remember to keep these tips in mind and to just be yourself. And finally, don’t forget to thank the interviewers for taking the time to meet with you and for the opportunity to participate.

Best of luck!

University of Queensland cements global top-tier status with rise in QS table

The University of Queensland has moved higher in the influential QS World University Rankings, coming in at 47th globally, placing it well inside the top one per cent of the world’s 26,000 universities.

University of Queensland cements global top-tier status with rise in QS table

Find out how you can study at UQ

UQ’s placing in the annual QS ranking announced June 8 follows the university’s impressive performance in the prestigious Leiden ranking last month and a “massive result” in Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project funding announced earlier.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ had continued to excel, securing $22.6 million in ARC funding for 17 projects, with funding for more research projects than any other university nationally.

“UQ sits comfortably within the world’s top 50 universities across a number of measures,” Professor Høj said.

“This latest QS result is an extremely gratifying endorsement of our efforts to provide our students with a world-class education in a global top-tier research university.

“Every UQ staff member has contributed in some way to this result, and I congratulate them all for their efforts.

“It’s no small achievement to be placed within the world’s best 50 universities,” Professor Høj said.

The QS ranking considers more than 4000 universities and evaluates 980 of them in detail.

For the latest QS report released June 8, the London-based Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd (QS) analysed 75 million citations encompassing more than 12 million papers, and 115,000 survey responses from employers and academics.

The QS institution report on the University of Queensland states that its performance against about 26,000 universities globally places it in the top one per cent of universities in the world, and at fourth in Australia.

UQ has featured strongly in the QS ranking over the past five years.

Admissions test no longer required for UQ dentistry program

More options for anyone interested in studying dentistry in Australia!

Effectively immediately, the UQ dentistry program will no longer require international applicants to write the International Student Admissions Test (ISAT).

Admissions test no longer required for UQ dentistry program

Learn more about the UQ dentistry program

So, what does that mean for our Canadian students?

This is great news, as the program increased its number of spots for international students for the 2018 intake from 12 to 40. UQ is among the most prestigious universities in Australia and the feedback we have received from the few OzTREKK students who started in the program in February this year has been glowing.

How will I be assessed?

If you have not undertaken any post-secondary studies, you will be assessed based on your top Grade 12 marks. You must have a 90% in your top subjects to apply (top 6 in Ontario, top 5 in BC/Alberta).

If you have taken one or more years of university, your GPA will be calculated based on your university studies. You must have a  cumulative GPA of 6.5/7.0. This varies slightly by university but, in Canadian terms, your GPA must be a 3.67 on a 4.0 scale or a 92% on a percentile scale to be eligible for the program.

How do I apply?

UQ assesses applications on a rolling-admissions basis—that means the university assesses applications as they are received. If you wish to apply, you are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible. With such dentistry being so popular with Canadian students, we expect the UQ dentistry program will fill before the summer is out.

If you have already applied to other Australian dental schools for the 2018 intake, email Adam to let him know you would to apply to UQ as well. Adam will advise you if anything else is needed to complete your application (a high school transcript is required—for everyone!).

Program: Bachelor of Dental Science
Location: Brisbane, Queensland
Semester intake: February

Will my Australian physiotherapy degree be recognised in Canada?

One of the most common questions we receive at OzTREKK is “Will my degree be recognised in Canada?”

The short answer is yes, it will. For the most part, we only feature degrees that are transferable to Canada. In most cases, graduates will have to take exams upon their return to home in order to be licensed to practice in Canada. Competency exams are a regular part of all professional degrees, even those awarded here in Canada.

Australian physiotherapy degrees are highly sought after by Canadian university graduates with academic backgrounds in kinesiology, health sciences and human kinetics. So when students inquire about studying physiotherapy in Australia, we are proud to tell you that the Australian universities we represent are some of the best! Australia is world-renowned for its leading-edge physiotherapy research and practice, and Canadians enjoy learning from Australian academics who are world leaders in the physiotherapy field.

Study physiotherapy in Australia, practice in Canada

Discover how you can study physiotherapy in Australia (Photo credit: University of Melbourne)

Now, let us tell you a little bit about the “coming back to Canada to practice” part!

Purpose of Credentialling

Graduates who wish to become certified as a physiotherapist here in Canada will need to apply for certification through Canada’s provincial certification boards. In many cases these provincial certification boards will require applicants to also complete the certification process through Canada’s national physiotherapy regulatory board, the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (Alliance).

The credentialling process involves comparing an internationally educated physiotherapist’s education and credentials to that of a Canadian-educated physiotherapist to determine if there are substantial differences in the qualifications that would prevent the internationally educated physiotherapist from being eligible for the Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE).

To determine if an internationally educated physiotherapist’s training is not substantially different from that of a Canadian-educated physiotherapist, the following five criteria must be met:

  1. Verification of identity through authentic and valid documentation
  2. Completion of a university level, entry-to-practice degree in physiotherapy
  3. Successful completion of a minimum of 1025 hours of supervised clinical education
  4. Fluency in English or French
  5. Knowledge of the practice of physiotherapy within the Canadian healthcare system

How do Canadians Fare on the Physiotherapy Competency Exam?

Since Australian physiotherapy programs are considered among the world’s best, Canadian students who have graduated from an Australian physiotherapy school have the best pass rates on both the written and clinical exams! Here is an example of the pass rates for 2011–2016:

  • Written Exam – 80% of Australian-educated test takers passed on the first attempt
  • Clinical Exam – 81% of Australian educated test takers passed on the first attempt
