Hello Atar Notes,

I was wondering whether it is possible to have the Monash Community Leaders Scholarship ($4000 for one year) and the Vice Chancellors Scholarship for Excellence at the same time ($6000 for duration of degree)? I would really appreciate if someone could give me a definite answer or if you know of anyone holding both of these scholarships.

Hello Atar Notes,

I would really appreciate if someone could give me a definite answer or if you know of anyone holding both of these scholarships.

As per here and here, you may have both simultaneously if the two scholarships are one merit and one equity scholarship, but unfortunately I can't seem to determine whether they're classified as merit and/or equity. I'd probably contact Access Monash, Monash Connect or the Coursework Scholarships Unit to get a more concrete answer. My guess is that the Community Leaders Scholarship is equity and the Vice Chancellor's is more merit, but possibly merity-equity. As I said, I'm not sure.

For the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Excellence, is financial disadvantage sufficient or do we require an additional disadvantage?

Based on this I believe so

Hi, I'm doing a health science degree, so I was wondering is it better to have a double minor or just a single major?
Thanks

Hi
Can I do biomed and then do master of ultrasound to practise as a sonographer or can I only do the masters having done a bachelor's of medical imaging and radiography?
Thanks

Depends on your personal choice. Single major and double minor are both valid choices, as long as you complete the appropriate units (including prerequisite units), can fit everything in and fulfil your course requirements.

I'm not sure, but it looks like it may be a yes to the Biomed + Master of Ultrasound pathway. I'd recommend double checking with Monash Connect either via phone or visiting them in person to confirm. Here's a link to their contact details. You can also call 1800 MONASH during the extended hours for help.

hi,

I just finished school, and I'm kinda stuck between deciding what I want to study next year. at the moment, I'm considering either biomed + law or biomed + engineering double degree. I want to keep med as a postgrad option at monash which is why I'm doing biomed, and I feel like it's better to study another course at the same time to keep my options open. plus, I might not even decide to study med, if all goes well and there are job prospects from whatever double degree I choose. I just wanted to ask if studying biomed + law would be a reasonable double degree option? some people have said that it's such a random, broad option (and pointless? ) and that it would be better to study bio+eng...

hope my question makes sense lol

Biomed/law isnt too random actually. I know a few people who are currently in that degree. They are both two worthwhile degrees.

Ultimately, it really is whether you prefer law or engineering. There isnt a right or wrong option.

Yo how unlikely is it that I will get second round offer for Halls - clayton urban community

Missed out on first round and I have heard things like very few people get second round offer (overwhelming majority of places are filled up by those who received first round offers)

I do have back up plans in case I don't get into halls but just want to know what my chances are like

Hi! what if I don't achieve the prerequisites for my selected course? such as the ATAR is a little bit off, is there any other way into the course which does not end up me having to wait until 2021?

The requirements of prerequisites are much more rigid than the ATAR requirement so I would say it is unlikely to get a course offer if you don't meet the prerequisites. That is because if you don't meet these criteria you are automatically not considered for the course - no matter what atar you get.

There are ways around it - sometimes - such as bridging courses over the summer to meet a certain standard of a subject.

By prerequisites, did you mean you got a lower ATAR than the lowest selection rank, or did you mean you got a lower raw SS for a prerequisite subject for that course? Usually when someone talks about prerequisites, they mean subject, but your second sentence suggests otherwise.

If it’s just a lower ATAR than lowest selection rank: this is OK and your chances will depend on demand and spots available. Keep the course at Preference #1 anyway and see how you go. I’d recommend changing at least one or two of your lower preferences to courses that you’d be happy with and can get into with the ATAR you received, just in case.

If it’s a subject prerequisite you’ve missed: Ah, this one is a bit tougher. As Sine has said, generally they don’t permit someone with a raw SS lower than the one stated on the prerequisites and the usual paths from there include:
- bridging courses (if available)
- taking a similar course that has a lower subject prerequisite at Monash and doing an internal transfer - you can transfer between each semester, as long as you meet transfer requirements, usually via your uni grades, but may consider ATAR if you’re transferring in first year. Transfer may be made easier by doing as many subjects you can in the area of your desired course without breaking the requirements of your degree e.g. in electives. You will need to ask your faculty’s student services if you need to take an equivalent of the prerequisite subject you didn’t make the prerequisite in for a successful transfer.
- taking a similar course that has a lower subject prerequisite or that prerequisite subject is not needed at another institute and doing an external transfer, which has the same sort of conditions as an internal transfer, but will need to ask if transfer to your desired course at Monash is possible and whether credit transfer will be possible.

Hey. If i'm planning to go into teaching VCE economics after completing an undergrad and then a masters in teaching, is it acceptable to minor in economics and major is something such as finance, and still qualify to teach economics? Or would I need to major in economics to teach the subject at a vce level

The requirements to be qualified (in the eyes of the Victorian Institute of Teaching) to teach Economics is at least a minor in it. Do keep in mind that if you wish to specialise in Secondary Education (without Primary), then you require at least 2 specialisation areas - that would be Economics and something else.

I noticed you're hoping on Science - if you are planning to teach Psychology too, be aware that under the MTeaching at Monash, you cannot do the relevant units to be qualified for it. Monash for some reason appears to restrict it to only students who are doing the undergraduate double degree in Education (unsure about other universities). If this would cause a bit of a hitch in your plans, I suggest reading this page to see what specialisations are available at Monash (including the links included to the VIT requirements) and looking up other MTeaching courses at other universities.

Edit: Further, according to the link above, (if you only intend to specialise in Secondary) 1 of your 2 specialisations must have a major backing it, and the other at least has a minor, so even though they only require a minor for Economics, your combination of areas should not have minors backing both of them (at least for Monash).

I recommend contacting the Education faculty at Monash to enquire about the MTeaching and your specific aspirations if you wish to do the course there.
