What about Uni of Adelaide?Its meant to be a good one too
The Uni of Adelaide is alright - I don't know too much about it now, but I will soon as I'm thinking of studying post-grad physio there (1.5 year course FT) so if you ask me in about 6 months I'll hopefully be able to tell you everything you need to know.

Adelaide University!

I'm a final year Economics undergrad and I think that the School of Economics and School of Commerce at Adelaide Uni are top notch.

Ive started psyc in my degree now, just today and the lecturer said that UQ has the best Psyc program in Australia and most of it is due to the research that they do there.

Well done I've just finished the psych part of my degree, woo! :p: Yay no more psych :cool:

Just biology now, with a bit of geog (best in the country, at the ANU that is) thrown in for good measure, until December this year when I finally graduate. I'm a bit scared actually, of graduating, and I'm hoping to have a place in post-grad physio by then...

P.S. BTW you can ask me anything you want, Eve, about psych. I'll prolly be able to help you after studying it for two years straight university-level already.

No problem Though it might be, come to think of it, best to ask him about neuroscience-related issues *remembers how much she loathed it* :eek:

On the other hand I found the cognitive modules a breeze, plus personality psych was interesting... to me anyway. We had a weird lecturer tho

Adelaide.. SA.... posh?! *choke* :p: (no off to all those SA ppl out there...)
once again ill stand up to defend poor old SA haha. SA is very nice and pretty to start with, ive been there many times; of course it isnt NSW but one needs every kind right.

also, in the Times world ranking, Uni of Adelaide came 63rd out of 200 i think, which is pretty good ( altho admittedly this ranking shouldnt be taken as the ultimate truth), and which was before Warwick or St Andrews for example.

and to finish i didnt say the whole of SA was posh, just that apparently to South Australians, Uni of Adelaide stands as the good/posh uni of the state.

Ahaha, yeah that's true, actually. Ruby couldn't be more spot on, and by way of illustration I'm most likely/hopefully gonna be starting my 1.5 year physio post-grad course half-way through NEXT year in July.

Yep, July intakes certainly are available, though from what I know, post-grad degrees and some undergrad diplomas offer that alternative. It's rare for an undergrad course at university to start in July tho, most courses do, as Everdawn said earlier, start in January.

*Sub, you can be assured that while I strongly believe that the G8 is a marketing tool, I also strongly believe in the quality of universities like UNSW, University of Melbourne, University of Sydney and ANU.

Of course, there are some who think highly of Monash and the other G8 members. However, once again, I don't think it is in the same league as the four universities I named above.

I could be wrong, of course. However, a friend of mine doing doctoral studies at the University of Melbourne speaks ill of Monash, as does my friend doing undergraduate studies at the University of Sydney.

Might I also add before I go that we should always take rankings and university alliances with a pinch of salt, if not a barrel!

I went to Bond and completed an undergraduate degree there and it was an excellent uni, facilities, faculty, quality of teaching was IMO the best I have had, i.e. you get what you pay for. I have also studied at Auckland Uni (same level of teaching and research supposedly as UNSW, USyd, UQ etc) and Massey in NZ which were nowhere as good as Bond. Haven't studied anywhere else in Aussie though for comparison..

There were a number of law students that had transferred out of other law schools (quite a few I knew were from UQ and said it was crap there) and moved to Bond. But I dont think that this happening is indicative of how good or bad a uni is. Students transfer all the time for a variety of reasons.

For best uni in Aussie I would have thought ANU but depends on what you are studying.

Yeah it is for academic and post-grad. A lot of people come here to study for their PhD for example, or to undertake a more generalised undergrad degree to get into government.

It's not so useful if you want a more specific career/have a desire to specialise. For instance I wanna become a physio and you can be as smart as anything, but you won't end up becomming one studying here at the ANU :p:

Which is why I've shortened my degree (it was originally a 4-year bachelor of science/psychology, but have changed it to a 3-year straight science degree or BSc) and am graduating at the end of the year. So I can go to either Adelaide or Newcastle to do physiotherapy as soon as poss.

I thought most Antipodean unis weren't all that and the best students came over to America or Britain (my brother's kiwi friend did anyway). I thought Melbourne was pretty good and apparently I can spend a year there as part of my degree at Imperial... 3 back to back summers, hell yeah!

:rolleyes:




Bit of a tip: might be a good idea not to repeat what you just said to the local Victorian if you just so happen to spend a year out here at one of our unis. I mean you can if you want, feel more than free, but you know. Just warning. Hopefully you've enough common sense to realise that :cool:
