Importance Of Higher Education Counseling For Study In Australia | Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world | BOOKCOST.NET

Studying in Australia offers international students more than academic achievement and a globally recognized qualification. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience through which a student can develop independence, maturity, an understanding of other cultures, and the ability to see issues from different perspectives.

Study in Australia better prepares a student to work in todays global marketplace. This is why several foreign companies recruit directly from Australian universities and vocational institutes. Many international organizations and companies employ overseas students with Australian qualifications because their exposure to the outside world gives them greater independence and maturity. With international trade barriers disappearing, great opportunities exist for those with the skills, experience and knowledge to seize them.

In Australia, international students can gain this experience in a safe, friendly environment and at an affordable cost.

Excerpts from Julia Gillard’s Deputy Prime Minister of Australia and deputy leader of the federal Australian Labor Party (ALP) Speech Address to the DEEWR International Education Roundtable
16 MARCH 2009March 16 2009

Less than three weeks ago, I released new figures which showed that international student enrolments in Australia had increased by just under 21 per cent in 2008, reaching more than 543,000.

At the time I noted that education institutions were reporting continuing strong interest from international students wishing to study in Australia—despite the current global economic downturn.

It’s important to remember that historically we’ve seen international demand for Australian education continue, even during economic slumps.

And on the higher education front, I’ve made it clear the Government is committed to providing more opportunities for students, ensuring academic freedom and autonomy, and encouraging and supporting research—and particularly through international partnerships.
From early childhood, school, vocational education and training, right through to the university sector, this Government is committed to delivering an Education Revolution.
Rest assured, we know how valuable and important the international education industry is to Australia, to other economies and societies, and of course to individual students themselves.
This industry supports an estimated 80 000 Australian jobs.

Having international students on campuses here in Australia—studying alongside local students—creates a better, fairer and more tolerant society, and ensures a wider diversity of programs for both Australian and international students alike.
International education also creates and encourages the knowledge and skills which are crucial to tackling some of the serious global challenges we all face, like climate change, water resource management, food security, global poverty, and international political and social unrest..
Quite simply, the international education industry has tremendous capacity to continue to contribute to both our national and international goals, and this is particularly true in these troubled financial times.

You will all know I’m sure that ‘Live, Learn and Grow’ is the tagline for Australia’s international education brand, Study in Australia. Central to this brand identity is the high quality learning and lifestyle opportunities offered by Australian education.

Above all, I want Australia to be seen by international students as a welcoming place to study for a globally recognised education qualification.

Australia-Indonesia Conference in Sydney: Partners in a New Era

To have a better and deeper understanding of Australians and Indonesians’ unique political, economic, social and religious characters, perception about each other have to be updated regularly and properly. Mutual and Beneficial relationship between Government-to-Government, People-to-People and Business-to-Business of both countries must be mutually encouraged.

A high level conference on the future of both countries’ relationship was held in Sydney from 19-21 February 2009. This is the first conference that brought together leading and influential Indonesians and Australians from a range of backgrounds including government, industry, academia, the media, community organizations, faith group and youth. All the participants actively discussed number of issues and how they might more effectively address common challenges including strengthening democratic institutions, business and protecting environment.

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd spoke at a diner to launch the conference. The dinner was also to mark the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the Australia-Indonesia Institute (AII).

Why SKA hear at Study in Australia – itsReal

Over the past several years, discussions have been occurring in several countries about the next logical step in radio astronomy following the construction of the large millimetre array ALMA. An initiative has emerged to develop a telescope to provide two orders of magnitude increase in sensitivity over existing facilities at metre to centimetre wavelengths. To achieve this goal will require a telescope with one square kilometre of collecting area – one hundred times more collecting area than the Very Large Array (VLA).

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will probe the gaseous component of the early Universe, thereby addressing fundamental questions in research on the origin and evolution of the Universe. The SKA will complement planned facilities at other wavelengths, such as ALMA and James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). HI, CO and continuum radiation would be observed from the interstellar medium of most of the galaxies the JWST will discover in the infrared at large redshifts.

Extensive discussion of the science drivers and of the evolving technical possibilities has led to a concept for the Square Kilometre Array and a set of design goals. The SKA will be an interferometric array of individual antenna stations, synthesizing an aperture with diameter of up to several 1000 kilometers. A number of configurations are under consideration to distribute the 1 million square metres of collecting area. These include 30 stations each with the collecting area equivalent to a 200 metres diameter telescope, and 150 stations each with the collecting area of a 90 m telescope ( more about design and location proposals ).

Approximately 50% of the collecting area is to be contained within a centrally-condensed inner array of 5km diameter to provide ultrahigh brightness sensitivity at arc-second scale resolution for studies of the faint spectral line signatures of structures in the early Universe. Another 25 % of the collecting area will be located within a diameter of 150 km, and the remainder out to 3000 km or more. This high angular resolution capability will allow imaging of faint emission from the interstellar medium of distant galaxies, as well as the surface of stars, and the active nuclei of galaxies.

Top Five Principal Science Drivers for SKA Project

Perth Education City is proud to present Professor Peter Quinn for a special seminar at the Australian Education Showcase 2009 on the cosmic journey back in time – the findings, the mysteries uncovered and the new generation of telescopes that will be built. http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/event.php?eid=56490093699

Key science projects

The SKA science impact will be extraordinary. Recently the SKA’s International Science Advisory Committee (ISAC) has agreed upon five principal science drivers against whose requirements any technical design must be tested.

> The cradle of life
There is increasing interest in the community in astrobiology and in the search for Earth-like planets. The SKA has the unique potential for finding evidence of extra-solar terrestrial planets and of other life like us.
more…
>Strong field tests of gravity using pulsars and black holes
Pulsar surveys with the SKA can discover tens of thousands of pulsars, amongst which we expect to find a pulsar in orbit around a stellar-mass black hole and pulsars in close orbit around the super-massive black hole at the Galactic Centre. more…
> The origin and evolution of Cosmic Magnetism
Radio astronomy is uniquely placed in its capability to study magnetic fields at great distances. Large-scale polarimetric studies will allow us to completely characterize the evolution of magnetic fields in galaxies, clusters and the inter-galactic medium; to investigate the connection between the formation of magnetic fields and the formation of structure in the early Universe, and to provide solid constraints on when and how the first magnetic fields in the Universe were generated. more…

> Galaxy evolution, cosmology and dark energy
The original motivation for building the SKA was to detect HI in normal galaxies at high redshift. Such an experiment promises a particularly exciting result, in that the vast volume of space probed by an SKA HI galaxy survey will provide an exquisite matter power spectrum, with which we can compute the Universe’s Equation of State, and map out the strength of Dark Energy as a function of cosmic epoch. At the same time, the SKA’s unique capability to observe the neutral atomic component of gas in galaxies will allow us to chart the kinematics, merger history and environment of ordinary galaxies as they evolve from redshifts z~5 to the present. more…
> Probing the Dark Ages
The ensemble of the data collected by SKA can provide unique information on how the first galaxies and black holes assembled themselves, and how they influenced their environment. more…
