The week celebrates our diverse community and strengthens our inclusive culture. It’s about helping to create an environment of involvement, respect and connection through sharing and learning from one another.
We have highlighted some of our most anticipated events below, which we think you will enjoy.
Honours will give you a competitive advantage in your career. Most importantly, Honours will give you the first big chance to ‘stretch your legs’ on your very own project. It will also give you an excellent preparation for a higher degree by research (research master’s, or the PhD) to further consolidate your communication and research skills, hone your project management and problem-solving ability, and make you stand out from the crowd as a future leader in your field.
As an honours student you will work one-on-one with an academic on a research project. Academics are excited about their research and take great pride in mentoring the next generation of scientists.
Sometimes, studying can be overwhelming for me. I write down the things I want to achieve today and achieve this week and realised there was quite a bit to do since it’s week 12.
These are 12 things I tell myself when I feel a little demotivated and a little overwhelmed. These are my own things and they may not apply to you. I am sharing this in hope you can find some of it hopeful.
Restless nights, followed by tiring mornings and always feeling like you can never catch enough sleep?
Like how we have habits to keep our teeth clean and our studies done, we have habits that affect our sleep.
Sleep hygiene describes good sleep habits. Here are some advice to help you get a good night’s sleep from a student. Most of these are common sense but the hustle and bustle of the modern and uni life makes most of us neglect some of our common senses and self-care.
The School of Chemistry has a long-running exchange program with the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy at Leipzig University. The Monash-Leipzig Exchange program was originally initiated by Professors Glen Deacon and Peter Junk (currently at James Cook University), who have had strong collaborations with academics at this German University for the last 25 years, especially Professor Evamarie Hey-Hawkins, the current coordinator of the program on the Leipzig side. It was due to Professors Deacon’s and Junk’s efforts to raise initial funding from the DVC office at Monash University that allowed the first cohort of 7 undergraduate and Honours students to be sent to Leipzig.
Every year the School hosts between 4 and 6 German Master’s students who undertake a couple of research projects in chemistry. These visits are generously supported by the DAAD (Deutscher Akademsicher Austauschdienst – German Academic Exchange Service) funding body, Germany’s largest scholarship provider.
