Well after getting some great help from lots of people on the forums, I thought it was about time I offered to give something back.
One thing I have noticed is a lack of questions on University and other tertiary education. It surprises me as in my day job I get a lot of questions in person, on the phone and online from us poms! Maybe it's that the people of pomsinadelaide are fully up to date with their higher ed knowledge or there simply isn't a need for it on here as I do notice most of us have younger families.
In any case I would like to offer my help to anyone who may have a question about Universities especially here in SA. After 18 months of working in a senior marketing role at UniSA I have built up a decent amount of knowledge about the 3 SA Universities and before I get accused of any bias, all 3 are great and have their strengths. This makes us very lucky in SA, I speak from experience after working in similar roles back in the UK where there is a real mixed bag of excellent, good, average and very poor Universities. I also have had to build a bit of know how about admissions, fees and some general “other” know how. So though I am a bit of a “generalist” I do know a lot of “specialists”, whether that be an academic in a particular program or a professional in a key function area. So even if I don't know the answer immediately I feel fairly confident I know someone who will or where to direct you to at the very least.
So if anyone out there ever does need or want any help in the University area feel free to PM me and I will try my best to assist.
Hope we are all enjoying our very warm summer!
