Upcoming Application Deadline – 30 June
- Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery
- Bachelor of Dental Surgery
- Bachelor of Oral Health
Applications for 2008 admission to the above three programs will close on 30 June 2007.
The application and the PQA registration fee or credit card authority must be received by the International Office – not the Faculty of Health Sciences – by 30 June 2007. As we have very limited time to finalise the PQA sitting details, applications that arrive after the above specified time will NOT be accepted.
Applications must be accompanied by all required documentation together with AUD$150 for the PQA registration fee. If the final academic results and/or the English test results are not yet available, please indicate so under the relevant section of the application form.
Documents can be scanned/faxed to us and have to be properly certified by your office where certification is required. The hard copies need not be submitted to us afterward. However, if applicants choose to pay the PQA by bank draft instead of credit card the original bank draft for PQA fee must be received by this office at the closing time specified above.
PQA Payment Methods – the PQA may be paid by bank draft or credit card. The PQA Credit Card Authorisation Form should be completed if applicants wish to use this payment option.
Bachelor of Nursing Changes – applicants to this program are no longer required to sit the PQA. The deadline for the program is now 28 September 2007.

International Office staff profile
In this issue we profile Amy Shih. Amy has worked at the International Office since 2000, although her connection with the University goes back to 1972, when her father joined the Centre for Asian Studies as a member of teaching staff. Amy studied at the University as part of her Bachelor of Arts degree, and her son is a PhD graduate.
Amy is currently a student services officer in the International Office, providing an extremely important customer service role, and also represents the University at international recruitment events. Her knowledge of written and spoken Chinese proves to be invaluable with staff, students and agents alike. Being the most ‘senior’ (by age, if not maturity!), Amy’s life experience, as well as her delicious curry puffs and dumplings, are valued by all staff in the International Office.
