This degree may be obtained on satisfactory completion of not less than one year's advanced study and investigation within the University after completion of the B.Sc. This degree may be obtained on completion of advanced studies of not less than two years of experimental and observational work, after completion of the course for the B.Sc.

Policies Governing Admission 1960

Previously registered students must submit an application to the Registrar's Science Branch no later than Friday, January 15, at the same time a provisional registration must be filed in the Student Registrar's Office. Admission to the course may be subject to passing a test in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

Matriculation

Subjects in which recognition will be given are indicated with a cross in the corresponding column. Candidates with approved technical college qualifications are eligible to matriculate if they have passed the matriculation examination in English expression.

Faculty Pre-requisites

Candidates who are in full-time employment and have passed the required school-leaving subjects may qualify to matriculate by passing, while in full-time employment, four matriculation subjects including English Expression in each three sessions.

Enrolment

All students admitted to the first year of the science course in 1960 must be photographed for record keeping purposes. Instructions for having photos taken free of charge at the Visual Resources Department will be provided to the students as soon as possible after the start of the academic year.

Attendance at the University

Annual examination in any subject, except by special permission of the faculty, who has not registered for that subject within the Qnе month after the beginning of the first term. Due to the greater accuracy of the University's records, at the end of the first term, each student will have to fill out a special application form for re-enrolment, which will show the subjects he intends to study in the rest of the year.

Evening Lectures

These may be accepted in special circumstances for an additional fee, but no candidate will be admitted to the.

Fees

When returning the device and the locker key, the amount is refunded, minus the value of breakages, etc.

University Library

Examinations

Graduation

The Union Theatre, the Ewing Art Gallery (entrance from the first floor), the Ruwden White Library (up in the southeast corner) are the main features of Union House. Every Saturday night in the first and second terms a social evening known as "Union Night" is held in the Union House.

Student Facilities

The Union is an organization designed to provide a common center for the many important activities of university life outside the lecture hall and laboratory. The association has agreed with some city companies to offer discounts to its members.

Student Guidance

The university units for training military aviation and military personnel attract the attention of students. Training Depot; details of Melbourne University Air Force Squadron can be obtained from C Squadron Leader.

Overseas Students

All men and women currently registered and available for employment are kept informed of suitable vacancies coming to the Board's notice. They also receive an annual copy of the Appointments Board Report containing up-to-date information on employment trends, graduate opportunities and current salary rates.

The Colleges of the University

Final year students are advised to register with the Board at the beginning of the year and call occasionally during the year to keep themselves informed of current employment trends. The Board's responsibility to graduates continues throughout their working lives; and there are very few graduates whom the Appointments Board is unable to assist at one stage or another in their working lives.

Diary

It will be seen that in both cases the gross income of the parents will be higher if there are other children under 16 years of age. The: bursaries provide for payment of university fees and for maintenance of students during the term of the bursaries.

Grants from Research Funds

Applications must be accompanied by evidence of the student's ability and full details of his financial situation. The value of the scholarship, which is usually awarded for two years, is 700 íA per year.
