Dear 2015 honours student
Congratulations on receiving a place in the honours program for 2015.
Honours, while building upon your undergraduate degree, is a separate and quite different program. It has different expectations and demands than you may have experienced at university previously. You are also provided with some different resources.
To explain this, answer your questions, begin the process of choosing a research topic, lab, supervisor, address concerns, and to introduce you to honours, a two day orientation workshop is being held on Wednesday and Thursday February 25 and 26. The workshop begins at 10am each day, and will conclude at approximately 4:00pm.
During this orientation you will meet honours staff, and each other. Necessary paperwork and documentation will be completed. You will learn about the lab themes and supervisors for 2015.
The workshop will be held in the honours studio, which is located in Building 9 of the RMIT City Campus, on level 2, in rooms 5 and 6. Access is via the ‘Student Atelier’ on level 2.
Any questions you may have prior to the orientation workshop should be addressed to me please, as I’m the program manager — which simply means I’m the academic responsible for the honours program. I can be contacted after February 7 on 03 9925 3157, or firstname.lastname@example.org
Could you please RSVP to me so I can confirm numbers (an email is fine)? In the meantime please keep an eye on https://consilience-nls.com/blog/ for news as it comes to hand, and send any questions my way.
Looking forward to seeing you all on February 25th.
You’ve received an offer for honours in 2015, you’ve enrolled. What’s next? On Wednesday February 25th and Thursday February 26th, 10am to 4pm each day, there is the honours orientation workshop.
Yes, you are expected to be there. Both days. We outline honours, expectations, requirements, timetable, introduce you to teaching staff and supervisors. It is during this time that your lab selection will be made for semester one, and for most of you, begin focussing on your research topic and likely supervisor. This is where we explain how honours works, how your research will align to the research groups and centres in the School of Media and Communication (and why), and how all this will happen.
The workshop will be held in the honours studios: Building 9, Level 2, rooms 5 and 6.
So, remember, Feb 25/26, 10:00 to 4:00, in 9.2.6.
A two day honours orientation workshop is held the week before semester begins. The 2015 orientation will be on Wednesday February 25, and Thursday February 26, from 10am to 4pm each day. You do need to attend both days.
The orientation workshop is to introduce you to honours, outline the year and expectations, and is where and when research topics and labs will be decided.
