Higher education students anywhere in Australia are able to enroll in Monash University’s Ukrainian Studies course. Students have a video link enabling them to participate in classes in real time. Online teaching is available for Ukrainian intermediate units in first and second semester. These units are for students with some previous knowledge of Ukrainian, especially for those with VCE, HSC or SACE in Ukrainian language.
Studying Ukrainian at an Australian university in 2014: a guide for students at universities other than Monash
In 2014 Ukrainian is available at Monash University at two entry levels:
Beginners level: Students enrolled at Monash University and students at other universities who are able to attend classes at the Clayton campus in person may enrol in ATS1211 Ukrainian introductory 1 and ATS1212 Ukrainian introductory 2.
Post-VCE/HSC/SACE level or equivalent: In 2014 Ukrainian intermediate will be available in the distance mode. Classes will include students physically present in an IT classroom at the Clayton campus and students elsewhere participating with the aid of video technology. Students will be able to study Ukrainian for credit toward their degree, subject to permission from their home Faculty. Such students will enrol in ATS2215 Ukrainian intermediate 1 and ATS2216 Ukrainian intermediate 2.
Alternatively, students may enrol for a Diploma in Languages (Ukrainian). The Diploma in Languages (Ukrainian) provides a program of study equivalent to a full undergraduate major in Ukrainian Studies, whether commenced at the introductory or the intermediate level. The Diploma is taken in parallel with the student’s main degree. Normally taking a Diploma alongside the main degree extends the period of study by one year. The Diploma in Languages (Ukrainian) is available to students at universities other than Monash, as well as to Monash students enrolled in Faculties other than Arts.
Procedure for students at universities other than Monash who wish to study Ukrainian for credit toward their main degree
Read the explanations at the beginning of the form carefully. Fill in the form, being sure to complete all relevant fields and to provide documentation specified.
If you have completed VCE/HSC/SACE Ukrainian, you will normally apply to enrol in the units ATS2215 Ukrainian Intermediate 1 and ATS2216 Ukrainian intermediate 2. If you have not completed VCE/HSC/SACE Ukrainian, and do not have an equivalent level of competence in Ukrainian, you will normally apply to enrol in ATS1211 Ukrainian introductory 1 and ATS1212 Ukrainian introductory 2.
You will need to provide certified hard copies of certain documents:
- You will need to demonstrate your citizenship status. If you are an Australian citizen, this will be a certified copy of your birth certificate or passport.
- You will need to demonstrate that you meet the University’s English language requirements. If you completed the last two years of your secondary schooling in Australia, this will be an official transcript of your VCE/HSC/SACE results. If you have done VCE/HSC/SACE Ukrainian, this transcript will also demonstrate your eligibility to enrol in ATS2215 Ukrainian Intermediate 1.
- You will need to show that your home institution allows you to enrol in the relevant Monash units. The office of your home Faculty will need to fill in Section C of the form or to provide a letter that contains all of the information that is required in the form.
- Your home Faculty may ask you for descriptions of the units that you propose to undertake. You will find these in the Monash University online Handbook at the links above. If any additional information is required, you should contact the Ukrainian Studies convenor at Marko.Pavlyshyn@monash.edu
Note that the stated date for receipt of cross-institutional application forms is at the end of January. Recognising that this deadline may be difficult for students to meet, especially students entering university for the first time, the Monash Faculty of Arts will endeavour to be flexible in receiving application forms. However, they should be received as early as possible and no later than one week before the commencement of Orientation Week.
Procedure for Monash Students in Faculties other than Arts who wish to enrol in a Diploma in Languages (Ukrainian)
Download the “Undergraduate Diploma application Faculty of Arts” form.
Read the explanations at the beginning of the form carefully. Fill in the form, being sure to complete all relevant fields and to provide all the documentation specified.
If any additional information is required, you should contact the Ukrainian Studies convenor at Marko.Pavlyshyn@monash.edu
The deadline for receipt of applications from commencing students is the Friday of Orientation Week (28 February 2014)
Importance of complete documentation
Many applications are held up because students submit application forms that are only partly filled in or accompanied by incomplete or uncertified documentation.
If uncertain, ring or e-mail the contacts below to inquire. This advice is especially important to students outside Melbourne who will be supplying their documentation by mail.
