Making the leap from the high school classroom to the tertiary learning environment can be daunting. For one thing, there many differences between these two worlds. Additionally, at a tertiary level you are choosing just one or two specialist areas to focus your study efforts on. Until you’re attending your first week of university of TAFE study, you may wonder if you have chosen the right pathway.
That’s why it is so important to do your research before you make an informed decision about your tertiary study. That research can involve speaking to people who have studied the courses you are thinking about; or perhaps it might see you attending university open days or engaging in email correspondance with a lecturer or course coordinator.
One link to answer your questions
One of the country’s leading surveying and spatial studies tertiary providers is RMIT University, and the team there has put together a suite of support documents and videos that will help you make an informed decision about your future.
The RMIT Geospatials Sciences Tour is a Google Earth page which not only outlines some of the university’s offerings, but also highlights the stories and experiences of surveying and spatial studies students.
Even if you aren’t based in Victoria, the information in the RMIT Geospatial Sciences Tour link can give you an indication of how surveying and spatial courses might run in your own state. It also gives a thorough rundown on career paths and possibilities connected to surveying, and provides links to talk further with RMIT staff.
