    hi

    if u do vet sci, murdoch is a better bet becoz they are accredited in USA and life in perth is slower and cheaper. be prepared to fork out at least 160k in AUD for the next 5 years of ur life and that not including living expenses

    I'm studying in Melbourne now, the life is quite good, shops (if you are thinking clothes) close at 5 to 6, there is life at night, near Chinatown and Bourke Street. I'm sure you know fees and living expanses are not cheap either.

    I agree with the others... perth is A DEAD PLACE!

    I go to Melbourne Uni, very nice place, alot of clubs and a sports centre. Alot of activities too. Though it's under threat by the government... (though I don't know which area of the Student Union).

    One more thing, Veterinary Science also includes farm animals. So you might need to travel to other campuses to do your course. One of my friends doing vet science said it's not too bad.

    Hey kairi, have you try IDP for more information?

    A few links that you might be interested

    A comparison is done on the different universities offering vet science. The entry requirements, the structure of the degree, etc
    http://www.avbc.asn.au/documents/Rev...iEducation.pdf

    A study of the current vet situations in NSW.

    NOOOOO!! COME TO BRISBANE!!! XD

    i'm not sure what the other unis are like, but in UQ (University of Queensland), vet science can get pretty hard.

    BUT! its really fun. my 3 neighbours are all in vet science.
    they've got annual balls to go to, vet smokos (which are so delish!) and they get serious hands on experience down at Gatton.
    and my friends say the lecturers are hot

    oh. and Perth is more of the old people city. XD
    Melbourne and Sydney has high cost of living.
    (not to mention the occasional riot or stabbing)
    and yes, shops close at 5.30 here. which is such a bummer.

    personal question though~
    your brother's name is alan right?? alan lek??
    he went to melbourne didn't he?

    She3pDog>> ne ne!! if i come over to sydney during easter break, can we go out too?
    been talking to Drefan about it. but nothing's confirmed yet.

    Lol wa so many information *cant breath*
    hmm.. i also find Perth quite boring but in terms of vet science Melbourne n Murdoch should be the better ones so i m considering them.
    Maybe melbourne is good but are the lecturers more focused on research?

    One question where u guys live in private apartments, hostel, homestay??

    1st year>> stayed with relatives
    2nd year>> stayed on campus college
    3rd year>> moved to a townhouse (something like semi-d's, just a lot nicer)

    from what i know, homestays are for people who are underaged.
    there are some cases where the person is not underaged, but it's very rare.

    hostels are expensive and if food is provided, it's usually crap.
    really crap.

    private apartments, if you're staying with someone you don't know. it's kinda at a disadvantage cos u don't know what the person is like.
    you gotta live with the person's faults and stuff.
    but u get to make friends, cook your own food. its fun.
    (i'm staying with a malaysian girl and her bro i met in first year, so its pretty fun)

    ---

    currently in 3rd year bachelor of science. majoring in mathematics.
    will be starting on my diploma of education next year.

    found out about UQ (university of queensland) through IDP when they had the uni foundation year openhouses.

    long list for me then...

    i found mine through IDP as well, but parents and I being conservative, we went for the sandstone universities in Australia. We didn't quite consider if the school is strong in the field or not, more important is the prestige or reputation.

    I found foundation year studies by luck, it wasn't part of the inital plan. Since I can skip one year of extra study, I just went ahead.

    So here my study list
    1998 - University of Sydney Foundation studies
    1999 - 2001 University of Sydney Bachelor of Economics (Social Sciences) Major in Political studies
    2002 - 2003 University of New south wales master of commerce
    Major in International Business
    Went to UNSW because everybody was praising how good it is.
    But went back to usyd because I don't like the unsw culture
    2003 - 2004 University of Sydney Master of Business
    Major in Business Information Systems

    1998 - 2000 3 years with one homestay. Awesome family
    I can't get into uni college because I was underage and no one can be a guardian at uni.
    Homestay is good but it really depend on your luck if you can find a good one.

    2001 - current: sharing. I moved about 6 times already, the list would be too long~

    Like chibified, it's fun to share with someone and enjoy a bit more independence. But once again it depends on your luck if you can get a good flatmate/housemate. Not everyone is nice and sometime culture clash coming from different regions/countries.

    Second year in Melbourne Uni

    Live in the same apartment along King street with family for 3 years(smack in the city, ok rent) will move out either mid year or end of the year.

    Take tram to school (Free circle tram then tram up Swanston Street to Uni) can walk. Tickets are expansive though unless you are a frequent user.

    Weather is freaky (can be cold and then hot the next day kind of thing, winter rains alot)

    Good & cheap food at the weirdest places.

    University - Geomatic Engineering / Science course
    Joined - Anime Club. Plan to join acting somewhere, dancing next year, Joining the Engineers Club.

    Life? - It's already relaxing, 4 subjects per term, definatly less stressful than o's or a's, unless you don't like the subject you are doing...=P

    yah. and u can always drop it.

    unlike secondary school or jc you get a choice of what you want to do. (don't all unis do that?)

    they also offer the basic courses in uni. so even if you didn't do eg. biology in sec school, u still can do it in uni.

    u just have the stress of planning your own timetable and stuff. and paying fees on time and whatnot. ^^
