If you’re looking for a path to continue your studies at a respected Group of Eight University in Australia, look no further than the University of Adelaide College (UoAC).
Situated in the safe and welcoming South Australian capital of Adelaide, UoAC enables students to achieve their best in their studies and ensures they’re supported and comfortable in their social surroundings.
With proximity to the beach and the cosmopolitan buzz of the city, it’s a college that really prepares all learners for an Australian study abroad experience.
Complementing the adjustment process of a new country and culture, the University of Adelaide College provides a Pre-Master’s Program (PMP) that provides you with the best start to your overseas postgraduate studies.
The first education provider in Australia to offer a postgraduate bridging course to a Group of Eight University and the preferred pathway provider to undergraduate and postgraduate study, at the University of Adelaide College, you’ll join a prestigious network of leading education providers.
After successfully completing the PMP, taught over two semesters, you’ll be guaranteed entry to the second semester of your chosen postgraduate degree at the University of Adelaide.
What does the Pre-Master’s Program provide?
Accredited by Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the Pre-Master’s Program provides a myriad of study benefits.
In the first bridging semester, you’ll develop your study and research skills along with English academic language writing, reading, listening and speaking skills.
To complete your PMP and graduate into the second semester of your chosen Master’s degree at the University of Adelaide, you’ll also need to study five courses in the bridging semester and four courses related to your chosen Master’s degree in the Pre-Master’s semester.
With the choice to progress to a postgraduate degree in diverse fields such as Business and Economics, Health Sciences and the Arts, the PMP provides the perfect study advantage to your Australian university experience, especially if you want extra time in deciding the direction of your career.
Appreciating the time and freedom granted by the PMP to a Master of Professional Accounting, Yike Huang from China greatly improved her study techniques and strategies while attending UoAC.
“Studying in Australia is quite challenging as it is very different to studying back home in China, but the staff at the College have been very helpful. The learning support and extra tutorials are great, and I can imagine if students go to university straight after high school that it would be very difficult,” Yike explains.
Offering students extra support in their English and academic study skills, the teachers at UoAC are there to help with any questions or study tactics.
For Yike, a special mention goes to her PMP teacher, Mona Umapathy.
“She spent a lot of time with us and answered any questions the class had and was very patient. When I felt down as a result of a disappointing mid-term exam result, I went to Mona and she helped me plan a study schedule. Since then, I’ve adopted the study strategies that Mona gave me for the rest of my study period and I’ve seen my results improve which I am so happy about,” highlights Yike.
The PMP at UoAC doesn’t just grant you extra preparation in the form of four additional months to your degree, but also pairs you with professors who genuinely care about your progression and academic success.
How does the Pre-Master’s Program benefit my student life?
As a student at the college, you’ll have direct access to the University of Adelaide campus and can join any of the clubs and societies on offer.
You’ll form friendships with other students on the same route and share your whole experience in Australia together.
UoAC’s convenient location means you can explore the Central Business District of Adelaide and take a short stroll to the University of Adelaide’s main campus.
The university’s revolutionary three-level, AU$42 million learning hub can be accessed by college students. Named ‘Hub Central’, it brings together learning and social spaces with student information services, creating a new meeting place for students from all programs and courses.
For Jiaqi Liu, a Pre-Master’s Program to Master of Accounting and Finance student from China, the reading room in the library was one of his favourite places on campus.
“I think the process of learning here is a great transition into university. For me, this is my first time studying abroad and the College provides a chance to let me adapt to study and life here,” Liu notes.
While forming new friendships with local and international students, Liu also formed supportive alliances with the UoAC teachers.
“To be honest, I think College teachers are outstanding and they are very experienced and patient. It’s very difficult for me to choose who is my favourite because I like all the teachers who taught me. They have all been a positive influence, helping me to face future setbacks with a better attitude,” he states.
The ultimate study abroad package, the PMP at the University of Adelaide College combines supportive faculty members with informative modules to ease the transition into further studies.
Life at the University of Adelaide College is an eye-opening educational experience providing enriching and engaging cultural, academic and career opportunities for international students.
