bachelor science first year I was in 5 days a week but lots of people set up their timetable to only be in on 4 days. A standard 1st year science "subject' (unit) has 5/6 -ish contact hours (and you'll be doing 4 of these each semester if you are full time). Keep in mind that you'll definitely need to also spend time outside these to get your work done.

I wanted to get into biomedical science at Monash but ended up receiving an offer for science at Monash. I'm hoping to transfer next year into biomedical science and then move onto study medicine. Does anyone know the units I should choose to complete this year to transfer into biomed next year and meets prerequisites for medicine?

asking for a friend: my friend received an offer of a Bachelor of Arts (Caufield) but they really wanted to get into Clayton.
They have finished their enrollment, and have enrolled into all their classes, but they enrolled into the Clayton subjects (even though all their subjects were offered in Caulfied)
Their enrollment was confirmed- like it says 'ENROLLED' and they received a transaction number.
Is this wrong, i told them they probz shouldn't do that since the Clayton classes may be over filled, will there be issues later on if they don't switch to the Caufield classes, for example, a possible timetable error.
Is this going to be an issue and should my friend switch back to Caulfield classes
Thanks

Probably a question for Arts Faculty student services or Monash Connect/ Ask Monash.

Has anyone done EAE1011 and EAE1022 Earth, atmosphere and environment 1 and 2 respectively? Is it a good subject and is it easy to maintain a high mark (for example to achieve a HD)?

Also is Psychology 1A and 1B really that bad and hard to get good marks or is it not as bad as people say it is?

I personally found them harder to score well compared to my other science subjects. This was mainly because essay writing is not my strength.
The major assignments in Psych A revolve around writing critically about how a psychology related theory is portrayed in pop culture. And in psych B assignments you need to create a research proposal. There is a lot of guidance provided in tutorials where the tutor explains things and there's a lot of time to ask questions. There is also examples of structure and format provided that are very helpful
.
assessments
psych A:
(there would normally be an exam in non-2020 years)
psych B:

The exam/quizzes were not too challenging imo and easier to get higher scores on, which might help you balance out assignment scores.
The psych tutors mark to a mean of 6.3ish/10 so it can be challenging to get higher scores on assignments. (very possible to do better than that though!) I followed the rubric very closely on my last assignment which I did much better on, so recommend checking the rubric often to make sure you cover everything.

I don't think that psych is as bad as people say it is. The main reasons people may not like it is because:
-apparently some people have been given unhelpful/not enough feedback on assignments. I think tutors like this would be in the minority though, I had tutors who were really helpful.
-The average mark of 6.3 on assignments.
Other than that, I think they adapted to online learning just as well as most other units, and the content is pretty interesting. Psych B has about 1/2 stats/research methods which is not the most juicy, but they are necessary basic skills for science.

Hi guys!
I've been offered to study bachelor of pharmacy in Monash and I just want to know if the lecturers are any good? I know for sure that I would need someone to depend on to ask questions, do the lecturers have time to tend to our needs? And how likely is it for a pharm student to get into med school?
Thanks :))

I can't speak too specifically for pharmacy but in general the ability of the lecturer depends on many factors, and their effectiveness would differ depending on the students also. I think you should expect to see lecturers that are both very good for you and also others which may not be.

However, I think basically all the lecturers are happy to take questions. You either meet them at their office (they usually give you their office hours) or you can send them an e-mail.

In terms of email just make sure you aren't too casual (at least at first). So you need to properly address them the first time, make sure you include what unit you are asking questions about. Usually one would include the unit in the email subject. If you are asking stuff more student-specific to yourself you would also include your student ID.

I can't really say what is the chance of a pharm student getting into med. I'm sure it's possible though and know of people who are doing that combo.

Hey there!

I did the B.PharmSci on the same campus, and we share mostly the same lecturers across both cohorts! The lecturers I had were extremely friendly and often helpful. Paul White, Roland Chung, Betty Exintaris and Jen Short are definitely a few faves of mine that teach both courses. :)

Lecturers are often available to answer questions, however, some are super busy and may prefer you to contact a tutor or ask on the moodle for the unit. In first year, Parkville also offer additional support classes called PASS classes, run by students with top marks from the years above for some units. The difference between high school and Monash Parkville is that whilst the cohorts are quite small and you get to know the teaching staff well, the learning is more on you, rather than the lecturer spoon feeding the content. The faculty prides itself on active learning, so classes in my experience tend to also be more on the discussion side, where you do most of the readings/learning 'flipped' or after classes.

I'm not sure about the med component, honestly.

Hope this gives a little insight! :)

Hey!
I'm a first year Monash student in 2021. I am just clarifying, is the date for putting in our timetables the 25th of Jan or can we do it earlier? Thank you :)

I'm pretty sure the date can't be earlier, I'm afraid! :)

I believe Allocate+ (the place where you input/get your timetables) opens on the 25th of January.

So you can start inputting preferences from that date. Then on the 5th of February, it closes. You will then receive your timetable in the 16th of February and at the same time allocate+ undergoes an adjustment period where people can change times of classes if there are availabilities. This period closes on the 15th of March.
