Hi, I may attend to the business degree as an international student at the university of sydney next year. (i study ib diploma in the uk btw) I saw many negative reviews about this university for some reason even though it's well known university in Australia. Some say the teaching quality is poor compared to ivy league unis or russell group unis, and others say it's too easy to get into there compared to those mentioned group unis and therefore it't not prestigious. Although the university ranking for business management at USYD is around 46 in the world. Here is the question; What's the position of the business management student at USYD in terms of the academic level?…
Also wanted to know if I’m Australian but completed IB overseas, would they convert the in points to Atar or keep it as IB points as I checked the website and it had said that I would get an extra 5 Atar points for achieving a 6 for HL English
Hello! I am a year 10 students who is in the process of choosing for my IBDP subjects. I have gotten interested in doing medicine and the only science subject I could get is biology HL. I couldn’t take chemistry because I didn’t take it in my IGCSE. So do I still have a chance to become a medical student with only bio HL and no chemistry in any Australian universities? Thank you for you answers
So, I am doing English Lang/Lit HL in IB and I will be giving my mocks soon. So I just wanted to know will I be required to do IELTS exam or not because of me doing Lang/Lit HL. Also how long are the IELTS valid for?
I'm currently making my IB subject selections, but unsure as to whether or not I should select the subjects I plan to. I want to study economics in Australia, preferably at the Australian National University, University of Melbourne, University of Western Australia or the University of Sydney. Are my choices correct? Do Australian universities require HL maths for economics?
HL: Math AA, Physics, Economics
SL: German B, Theatre, English A Lit
Currently, I am going onto year 12 and I am doing my IB exams in May 2020. I would like to study in Australia, moving there from Germany, and I had a few questions:
1) Do Australian universities generally accept predicted grades from overseas IB schools?
2) I would like to apply for a TFN (Tax Filing Number) as soon as possible as I would like to apply for a HECS-loan and for CSP– can I apply for this outside of Australia? I looked at the official ato.gov website and they have an application document for "people living outside of Australia". However, on the document I have to select a reason why I am applying for one and my reason, i.e. wanting to study there, i…
I'm having a small dillema and can't find my answer on the university websites. I'm predicted a quite average score of 32 but, with a little bit of luck and a fair amount of effort, I could potentially bring that up to a 35.
I'm applying to 4 universities in Australia (16 courses in total) to start in March 2020. The initial plan was to apply as soon as the results come out (July 6th) but a lot of the universities say that some people apply far in advance (Monash - "some courses may close a few months or a year before the start of the course, while others have quotas. Aim to have your online application submitted as early as possible"). Does anyone know whether it wo…
I want to study undergraduate medicine in Australia (preferably at Monash) and I've noticed that some courses don't require math SL. Whilst I'm probably capable of a achieving pretty well in math SL I'd rather take studies in order to maximise my IB score. I've heard from other people at my school that I could take a Queensland math B exam (I think in other Australian states it's called math methods) so that I can apply to the courses that actually require math SL and also match my competition in applying for the courses that don't, without damaging my IB score.
Would this be a good idea or would it hurt my chances of getting in?
I am starting IB next year and I'm starting to have my doubts.
I've been reading a lot online and it's putting me off, so I'm trying to regain my confidence.
I was just wondering whether Australian Universities like/favour IB students?
I'm currently in grade 10 (15 years old) and living in Australia. I was just wondering, does anyone knows of a full medicine scholarship that I could apply for being an Australian?
I'm considering applying for the Australian DUS (Defence University Sponsporship), however I don't want to serve in the defense force for 6 years after graduating. Is this the only way of attending med school for free?
Please let me know of any undergraduate full scholarship opportunities, they don't have to be from Australian universities.
Any help very much appreciated.
Just wondering if anyone knows how much it costs to take the 5 year undergraduate 'Medical Science and Medicine' degree at Monash University, Clayton. I tried to use their fee calculator but it gave me more than $300,000 which seems really excessive to me.
Any help very much appreciated.
I can't get into the Sydney programme because they said that Maths B (equivalent to our Maths SL) is required.
I can't get into James Cook for the same reason.
I'm confused about the Melbourne Chancellor's programme.
I'm not sure about Bond.
Any other options or should I try overseas?
I've just received my grades and it's not looking so good. I really don't understand how but I should've been predicted for a 30 at least but only got 27. Is there any hope? Are there universities that will accept me?
I couldn't get into the Maths SL class or Maths Studies one year class because my blocks didn't work and I really just don't like the idea of doing stressful mathematics but I was wondering if this will affect me in any way since I want to study medicine in a European or Australian university.
i was just looking to see Medicine Universities in Australia and im completely lost and have no idea what to do.So could anyone outline the australian medicine process for me, please??
( i have an australian passport but i do IB in Dubai)
Many websites are saying that high school students should have LinkedIn.
Would LinkedIn be useful for someone applying to undergraduate Medicine in Australia?
If it is useful or you have done it, do you have any tips?
I have already finished my grade 11 and till now I have no idea about what I want to do in my future or about my career choices. I really want to get into a university in either new Zealand or Australia. I'm really interested in music and literature but i'm thinking i might not make a career out of these cause i'm just and average singer and i don't think i will make it. Also i'm not extremely good in writing so that brings it down to 0. Now I'm extremely worried and don't know what I should do. My subjects are:
Eng HL - 5
Psych HL - 6
B&M HL - 5
Math studies SL - 5
ESS SL - 6
Spanish ab initio - 4
The title pretty much says it all.
I have UNSW as my #1 preference and it'll be staying that way. However, I'm not sure whether to place USYD #2 or UTS #2 (I'll be including them all regardless). My physics teacher, who has been a professor at Western Sydney Uni, said that UTS is really good because it's more hands-on than theory based.
What do people think? Thanks!
I'm currently in the second year of the IB curriculum, and the electives I chose are biology HL, computer science HL and geography SL
I wanna ask is studying CS in Uni of Melbourne worth it? Like the research opportunities, internship and general learning atmosphere? Thanks.
I am currently In year 10 looking to undertake the IB program in Years 11 and 12.
I have the choice of these two selections:
(Planning on staring with 4HL subjects then potentially dropping one down)
In my most recent school report I received all A's for my subjects and my highest A's were in Science and the languages.
I am currently wondering whic…
I am finishing IB this May and was wondering what are the initial procedures needed to apply though UAC, e.g my year 12 number etc? I've never heard of this and my uni counsellor is useless as she told me that I have to do it alone once I graduate from school as we are no longer their 'responsibility"... Please any help will be much appreciated..
Thank you !
Hey guys! I've applied to Sydney uni for a double degree in Engineering and Science. One reason I picked Sydney uni over unsw is due to Sydney's very extensive and prominent Talented Students Program in the sciences.
On their website, it reads that the 'normal' requirement to be invited to this program is by achieving a 99.00 ATAR or greater or achieving expectional results in science or maths subjects. I failed to achieve an ATAR of 99.00 as I only achieved 40 IB points which translates to an ATAR of 98.30 (only 1 mark away in 2 subjects to achieve 42 points (ATAR 99.45))
However, I earned 7's in HL Physics, Maths and Chemistry and achieved an A i…
I was wondering about applications for medicine in Australia, the deadlines are kind of vague to me and are not updated for 2017 applications (sending apps. in 2017), can anyone help me to clarify whether or not these dates stand for 2017? Below is a deadline list from Flinders University (all dates are 2016).
February 15 - Applications open
April 19 - Decision Point 1
May - Interviews
June 30 - Decision Point 2
August 1 - Decision Point 3
July-August - Interviews
November 14 - Decision Point 4

I want to study law after I finish the IB in Sydney, and I've called several universities and they said that you need to receive a score of at least 40+ to get into the uni. However, a friend of mine got into UTS after achieving a score of 31. How is this possible??
I'm going into the IBDP program this coming fall and my current subject choices are as follows:
English Literature HL
Chinese B SL
Math Studies SL
I've been told many times about the futility of taking math studies if I am going in a "sciency" direction, but I really want to major in psychology, and the University of Melbourne is currently a top choice, and math isn't my best subject. The bachelor of arts doesn't require any math prerequisites and has psychology, but considering the nature of my IB subject choices, a bachelor of science would be more suited for me? However the issue is that the cours…
I am from New Zealand and am interested in applying in universities in Australia. I was told that if I did IB, rather than being considered as a domestic student, I would be considered as a international student as well? The guy on the line didn't seem too sure of his words so I just wanted to confirm here.
I wanted to ask those who are applying to australian unis, do you apply for the sem.1 in february or the sem.2 in july? I've read on UNSW page that IB students who finish in may can apply for sem.2, but does that mean we cannot apply for the one in february? And does it make any difference? If I apply for sem.2 does it mean that I've missed a part of the course, or what?
I'm new to it, so sorry if it's a stupid question
Does Melbourne/Monash university allow students to take maths studies SL as an option for engineering courses, over maths SL. I'm a little confused as my teacher said I may not be able to cope with mathematics SL, so I really needed help! Any comments appreciated. Thank you!
Hello, I'm rhapsodysiscaa from Indonesia. So I may actually go to Perth for university. Currently taking English B HL. Is it necessary to take additional test like SAT, IELTS or TOEFL? Which one is better for Australian universities? My current choices are Monash, Curtin and Murdoch. Thank you.
So, Finance and Accounting rank 8 in the world at uni of Melbourne. My question is, how good are job prospects if you do an honours versus masters at Melbourne university, and in terms of top universities in the UK and USA, is a degree at Melbourne Uni for commerce considered very good? Thanks!

So I'm taking Math Studies SL since my school is a new IB school and they don't provide us Mathematics SL (Their excuse was because WE all choose Math Studies, but in reality only one student choose Math Studies SL). I'm going to talk to the principal of our school and I hope he understand what we're talking about because he's absolutely no clue about IB. The question is: Can you go to Bachelor of Commerce (Especially Accounting, Human Resource Management, etc) in Curtin University and Sydney University with Math Studies SL? I heard that UNSW and University of Melbourne do not accept Math Studies SL student. Thank you
Hi there, I'm aspiring to study Medicine in Australia, preferably in the state of NSW. So in Australia, as you may know, applications for universities work with the UAC (http://www.uac.edu.au), which controls the admissions and submits them to most universities around Australia (as some universities control admissions directly without the affiliation with UAC, but most are affiliated). But as per the UAC's website FAQ section, they don't work with predicted grades and will only take in the final results once they're released (in my case, July 2016). The problem is, my school will start making us apply to universities starting this September (in IB2) as most of the studen…
hey there!! I am planning on sitting the UMAT this july (I'm sooo scared!!) I've been looking for threats about UMAT & most of them are pretty old, so I want to know if someone out there has done the UMAT or can give general tips or resources. - Most of the people say that it does not worth it taking one of the expensive courses, that it is enough with online questions and past papers. Do you agree? - Did you have problems with time management? Both in the exam, and balance between IB & preparing for it. - I am a bit concerned because English is not my first language (I am fluent and I have done a year and a half of IB in English though) - do you think that …
Hi! I'm hoping to do Medicine in the University of Sydney. I wanted to know if I had chosen the right subjects for IB for getting into this course. I'm skeptic about having 4 major HL's as it will be an overbearing amount of work. From what I know IB subjects aren't scaled. So if I wanted to get a 45 in IB, the difficulty of my subjects wouldn't matter, correct? HL Chemistry HL Biology HL English HL Psychology SL Maths SL Latin My weakest subject is Math, and my strongest is Chemistry. Would dropping Psychology to SL be worthwhile? Thanks!
Hello, i want to study my undergraduate in broadcast journalism in Sydney Australia specifically unsw or macquarie university. i currently take English A SL, i was wondering if English A is a requirement of these universities since i cant manage to find it on their sites, and also should i upgrade it to HL ? i Recently got my IOC grade back and i got a 7/7 at it (24/30) but since english is my second language my supervisors didnt encourage me to upgrade it to HL
Hi everyone, I start my IBDP this year and have currently chosen maths HL. However, I've been looking over past papers and feel as if SL is far easier for me and would require little to no study to reach a 7 (I'm assuming that 3U maths is a little harder than SL, and I did my 3U HSC last year - I accelerated maths by 2 years). The thing is, I want to study a double degree law and commerce at either USYD/UNSW (which require a 44 entry mark), and I'm worried that SL maths will not be sufficient in the commerce course? Or would SL maths be insufficient in a career in finance/banking? I am capable of HL maths but it would require much more attention and practice - ther…
