    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Hey, kind of a stupid question here, but can anyone tell me what the hell i'm doing:

    I finally figured out how to enrol for Enrolment day and Academic Orientation, and i've booked in for both of those. However it says that I should come prepared with flexible times for my units incase I can't get the time I want. Where do I find what times my units are operating? Is it this thing here: http://i.imgur.com/GtIZp.png ? I have no clue on what i'm doing.

    Yep thats it your on the right page. So for semester 1 you should be looking at session 1, and semester 2 is session 2. Click on the unit to find out which tutorial and lecture time would suit you, so you can atleast have a rough idea prior to enrolment as to what unit you would like to enrol in. The actual enrolment into the classes is done by a student advisor at the uni the first time you go so you understand the process for future enrolments.

    Thanks for that. So is Semester 1 just the '100 level' units?

    Well 100 level units just mean these units are first year units. so they have no real correlation with what semester you do them in. But since your a first yr you will be doing 100 level units to start off with yes.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Ok now it's starting to make sense.

    I guess i'm in no rush to create a timetable since enrolment isn't until the 10th. I'm going to get some sleep and try to sort this out tomorrow.

    Thankyou.

    Ooooooh i'm so glad you're doing Antiquity's Heirs! In my experience it's the least popular of all the 100 lvl AHIS units, despite easily being the best, Andrew Gillet is fantastic =p

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    In my fourth year as well, should have the non-honours part of my undergrad done this year (i only take 3 units a semester so i'm a bit of a slowpoke). Still not sure what i'll be doing afterwards with the whole abolition of honours thing, seriously thinking of doing masters instead but will have to see what happens with HECs...

    Does make you feel kind of old... This year I'll (hopefully) be running PASS for one of the first year ancient languages i did, THEN i'll feel old methinks

    Gillet has the best hair of any lecturer. Ever. It has a certain He-Man quality to it.

    I'm actually looking forward to Antiquities' Heirs. Besides Egyptology, the rise of Christianity and Islam and the transition to our modern world, is something I'm pretty interested in. Also I hear it looks at Persia for a bit.

    ^ Indeed it does. Also, besides the content, the unit also really hammers proper source evaluation and research skills into you. It sets you up very nicely to deal with harder assignments later on, the only other thing as valuable for this would be the prosopography assignment in AHIS110 Rome: Republic to Empire imo

    So it would be a good idea to take the subject in semester 1, then?

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    What, AHIS110 or AHIS120? AHIS120 only runs in semester 2 and while AHIS110 (which does run in semester 1) is an awesome unit, i wouldn't take it unless you have an interest in Rome.

    AHIS120, I'm not interested in Rome. How do i determine what subjects run in which semester?

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    If you look up AHIS120 in the handbook you can see that next to 'when offered' it says 'D2 - Day; Offered in Session 2, North Ryde '. Session 2 here means semester 2.

    http://www.handbook.mq.edu.au/2012/Units/UGUnit/AHIS120

    Since not everything is available all the time it's important to pay attention to the hand book to make sure you're structuring your degree properly.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Hi, can you guys please help me out?
    I wanted to do arts this year at the north ryde campus, but i put the city campus down instead :/ i got accepted, but just realised my mistake now! Can the uni do anything? Or do i just have to accept that and hope to get an offer in the late round? (btw, arts is 75 and i got 91; its my pathway into an arts/law degree hopefully)

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Try reapplying in the late round. You should hopefully get a spot, given your ATAR.

    The uni can't really do anything, however transferring between campuses is pretty much automatic and you can do so after one semester (worst case scenario).

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    Greetings.

    Say if a person was doing a B of Arts and one of their majors was international business. After some time, they successfully transfer to B of Commerce - a degree which also has a international business major. Is it the same? Do the credits from completing international business in B of Arts carry over to B of Commerce?

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    The best way to find an answer to that question is to compare the subjects you study in each major. You can find this in the "What you will study" tab of each major, under the respective degrees. If the subjects are the same, then yes, you should receive credit for them when you transfer.

    B Commerce - Int business. I am doing this, and it is absolutely horrible and soul crushing. Do marketing instead, much better.
    Also, i doubt YOU of all people would be comfortable in international business (90% international students, from China and Korea)

    Yes. That was exactly what I was looking for. Some differences though:

    B of Commerce - International Business Major:

    Accounting IA (3)

    Accounting Information for Decision-Making (3)

    Microeconomic Principles (3)

    Marketing Fundamentals (3)

    Introductory Statistics (3)

    Statistical Data Analysis (3)

    Design and Statistics I (3)

    Introduction to International Business (3)


    International Business Operations (3)

    Global Marketing (3)

    International Business Project (3)

    Business Policy (3)

    Global Business, Society and Environment (3)

    Asian Business Environment (3)

    Cross Cultural Management (3)

    B of Arts - International Business Major:

    Accounting IA (3)

    Accounting Information for Decision-Making (3)

    Microeconomic Principles (3)

    Marketing Fundamentals (3)

    Introductory Statistics (3)

    Statistical Data Analysis (3)

    Design and Statistics I (3)

    Introduction to Global Business (3)

    International Business Operations (3)

    Global Marketing (3)

    International Business Project (3)

    Global Business Strategy (3)

    Global Business, Society and Environment (3)

    Asian Business Environment (3)

    Cross Cultural Management (3)

    ----

    Some of the subjects are different, would that mean it is not possible to get the credit transfer? Or would they 'overlook' it seeing the near whole of the Majors are the exact same?

    I noticed that differences in the same Major subjects are exactly like the example above.

    What's so bad about it?

    I thought you were going to say that it would make me uncomfortable due to me 'learning' about chinese and japanese business and whatnot. Need I remind you - I am not a racist, and do not live in some gated off whites only community far from non whites. Going to MacQ should give you a rough idea of where I live and my choices, seeing as though I've lived in the area my entire life it should obviously reveal to you that I have been deeply emerged in multiculturalism my entire life.

    What majors did you guys do? What ones are the most enjoyable and practical once graduated?

    [/QUOTE]What majors did you guys do? What ones are the most enjoyable and practical once graduated?[/QUOTE]

    I major in accounting, which is quite enjoyable, gets really practical and interesting as you go along the degree. I think finance is also quite a good major, along with marketing, but accounting isnt as bad as people make it out to be, once you do 2nd and 3rd yr accounting you realise how enjoyable it can be, and how many doors it can open up career wise.

    Re: MQ Chatter Thread

    hey guys, can you please help me out?

    I just got accepted into Bachelor Commerce/Bachelor of Laws in Macquarie.

    I want to start my timetable, but am confused.

    Do I first need to do those courses 100 level since I'm only first year? And when do I have to get my timetable done by?

    I'm so confused I read the handbook from Macq and watched all the Vodcasts related to enrolling/timetables but I'm still confused.

    Will I be too late? Will all the spots be taken?
