    受访嘉宾:Margaret Anderson,Regional Manager(North Asia),The University of Western Australia

  1、What are the key strengths of your institution?

  Business, engineering, life and agricultural sciences (we are ranked 44th on Shanghai Jiao Tong table for life and agricultural sciences)

  商科、工科、生命和农业科学(在上海交通大学的生命和农业科学高校专业排名里我校位列第44位)

  2、Is university ranking important or not? Does your institution care about the position of your institution in the world university ranking? What advice you would like to give to students about university ranking?

  Rankings are important as students need to ensure they attend a university with a good reputation and they graduate with a degree that is recognized around the world.

  All rankings systems are different and we care about some more than others. We believe the Shanghai Jiao Tong is a better system because it measure research output.

  Students can use a ranking to find good institutions but they should look beyond to make sure the university is the best one for them, based on what they want from their university experience.

  学校排名是很重要的,因为有了排名学生才能确保自己就读的学校有一个好的声誉,在毕业时拿到的学位也是被全世界所认可的。

  然而不同的排名方式会使学校有不同的排位,因此我们也不能仅局限于学校的排名。我们觉得上海交通大学的排名系统非常科学,因为它根据大学的研究产出量来进行排名。

  学生可以通过学校的排名去判断一所大学的优劣,但也不能完全局限到排名,挑选学校时还应考虑你真正想从大学生活里收获什么,只有这样才能找到完全适合的学校。

  3、How many students are there in your institution at the moment? What about the percentage of international students? How many Chinese students? Does your institution set a quota for the number of Chinese student your institution recruit every year?

  UWA has 21,000 students, both on and offshore. Our international students make up 21% of our total student body. We have only 354 Chinese students and have no quota on how many we can take. We welcome all suitably qualified students..

  西澳大学目前共有21000名学生,包括所有的国内生和国际生。国际生的比例为21%。目前我们仅有354名中国学生,至于招收中国学生的数量我们不做任何限制,我们欢迎所有适合我们学校的学生前来就读。

  4、What attributes you expect Chinese students to have when you recruit students, apart from meeting the academic entry requirement set by your institution?

  We strongly recommend good English skills, as this will mean students function more effectively more quickly once at university. We like our students to be willing to embrace their new environment and want to have an international experience.

  我们觉得英语能力非常重要,因为这意味着学生在大学里学习会有更高的效率同时也能取得更快的进步。另外我们更倾向于喜欢国际教学环境的学生,能更快融入学生集体。

  5、What kind of majors/subjects would Chinese students like to choose previously?

  Most of our current Chinese students study in business and engineering, though we also have 50 Chinese students undertaking research in life and physical sciences.

  目前我们在校的中国学生大多就读的是商科和工科,但我们也有50名中国学生正从事于生命和物理科学的研究。

  6、What majors/subjects/courses which your institution are offering are really good but haven’t been aware of by Chinese students? Can you introduce these majors/subjects/courses?

  We have a new program in 2010 called the Master of International Relations. We are also keen to let students know about our Master of Urban Design. Students with a wide background can entry both these programs. Also our masters in environmental management, conservation biology, marine and coastal management, natural resource management.

  我们学校在2010年会开设一个新的名为“国际关系”的硕士研究生专业。另外我们的硕士专业城市规划设计也很不错。有丰富专业知识背景的学生可以申请这两个专业。我们的硕士专业里如环境管理,生态保护,海洋和海岸管理,自然资源管理等都是不错的选择。

  7、Is there any change on the quota for international students and the amount of scholarships your institution can offer?

  We have no quotas so there are no changes. We are still offered a similar number of scholarships to previous years.

  我们学校不限制国际生获奖学金的人数所以自然也谈不上变化。今年我们仍提供与往年数量类似的奖学金数量。

  8、What about the employment of graduates in your institution? What kind of help your institution provide to students to help them with find a job? Any extra measures have been taken to help students in financial crisis?

  UWA graduates are the most successful in gaining employment in comparison to the other WA universities and in comparison to most other Australian universities. We run graduate recruitment programs on campus and many of our lecturers are also industry professionals with good networks and contacts.

  西澳大学的就业率与其它澳大利亚西部的大学相比是最高的,甚至在整个澳大利亚也算是很不错的。我们经常会有与就业相关的活动,如举行就业讲座等等,而聘请的演讲人员也都是行业自身人员。

  9、There have been some issue about safety of international students in Australia? Any advice you would like to give to Chinese students?

  Perth has a reputation of being a safe city but we still recommend being aware of your surroundings. On campus our students can access a security escort service to their cars or residential accommodation and the University is introducing better lighting and emergency contact areas for students to report anything suspicious.

  Perth是一个以安全而著称的城市,但我们同样还是要提醒学生注意周边环境。我们校园设有安全防卫系统,保护的对象包括学生的车和住所;学校的灯光设施非常先进,同时还设有专门的紧急呼救区域,学生发生任何可疑的事情可以立即报告。

  10、Will your institution take any actions to echo the ‘’2010 Initiative’’ launched by the Australian Government in 6 countries?

  We already have a presence in most of these countries and will support the Government’s initiatives where we can.

  这6个国家当中大多数我们已经涉足,所以我们当然会尽力支持政府的决策。
