For the ones that hope to make more connections with students or professors in Business School in other majors, although there is no plan to establish or further explore these relationships by the MMarketing program at this stage. However if there is interest in doing so, this represents a fantastic opportunity for students to be proactive in establishing these connections and to develop and build on their networking skills. Another opportunity for engagement with other Business School students will come from involvement in Peer Mentoring, Clubs & Societies, and other extracurricular activities.
The Careers and Employability Office (CEO) is an amazing resource unlike any other offered to students elsewhere in the University. The Job Smart program in particular, to which you all should have received an email invitation, is a great starting point in understanding the Australian labour market even if you have had significant work experience internationally. The CEO offers a number of other services and resources, such as resume and interview resources, job vacancy and internship postings, and one-on-one career counselling. This information can be found on Blackboard or the CEO website. Start by identifying your current skillset and comparing this with the graduate attributes that are valued by employers and all postgraduate students should aim to achieve.
The Tuition fees website is a great resource for estimating your fees (See “Understanding Your Fees”). Fees are based on a standard full-time student enrolment load of 24 credit points per semester or 48 credit points per year (1.0 Equivalent Full-Time Study Load – EFTSL). The Master of Marketing is a 60 credit point degree, so the study load for full time students is 1.25 EFTSL. It is also important to note that fees do increase at the beginning of each calendar year.
