MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE AT NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY

Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, design, education, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on October 13, 2018

 

Fremantle’s Notre Dame University will have a dedicated Design Studio located on the University’s Campus in which students will participate in project-based learning that have social and environmental impact within the City.

Master of Architecture, will begin in Semester One next year with a two-year program open to graduates holding a bachelor degree in architecture, interior architecture or an equivalent qualification.

The program is designed specifically to allow students to work part time in the field while undertaking supervised placements with Notre Dame’s professional partners.

The Master of Architecture will benefit from the distinctive elements of the Notre Dame experience: small class sizes; research-led teaching, high employability through engagement with industry, professional skills development; and ethical, values-driven curriculum.

Many of the key challenges of contemporary society – such as sustainability, housing affordability, ageing-in-place and community building – will underpin the studios within the program.

A second, three-year program, the Master of Architecture (Extended), will be open to high-achieving graduates who hold a bachelor degree in another discipline area such as arts, planning, fine art, design, environmental science, archaeology or history.

Entry to both programs will be based on a portfolio interview.

Unfortunately I could only spend fifteen minutes at the Open Day of Fremantle’s Notre Dame University as I was busy elsewhere, so here a few quick snaps I took.

The theme of the day was books.

WEDDING WALL REPAIRS RETAIN HERITAGE INTEGRITY

Good to see that the Fremantle’s Notre Dame University acted swiftly on my concerns about the so-called Wedding Wall in Cliff Street.

Repairs to retain the integrity of the heritage-listed wall have started, so now hoping that NDA will also beautify the rather unsightly carpark behind the wall in the near future.

NOTRE DAME ATTENDS TO WEDDING WALL

I am very impressed with Fremantle’s Notre Dame University’s swift action on the so called Wedding Wall in Cliff Street.

I just received news that NDA will start work on the wall. That shows very good corporate responsibility and the desire to protect the heritage, in response to the article I wrote here on Freo’s View about the neglected condition of the wall two weeks ago.

Well done Notre Dame Uni! Thank you!!

NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY RATED FIRST

Posted in city of fremantle, education, learning, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on May 17, 2018

 

Fremantle and Broome Notre Dame University campuses have excelled for the third year running in a nationwide survey of students commissioned by the Federal Government.

Findings from the combined results for undergraduate 2016 and 2017 Student Experience Survey (SES), announced yesterday, show Notre Dame achieving outstanding results, placing it first in Western Australia in five of six key indicators – ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’, ‘Teaching Quality’, ‘Skills Development’, ‘Learner Engagement’ and ‘Student Support’.

The SES is unique in that it draws feedback from students with the aim of helping students to make informed decisions about future study by enabling them to compare universities across states and disciplines. More than 351,000 students from around Australia responded to the combined 2016 and 2017 SES, including over 4000 students from Notre Dame’s Fremantle, Broome and Sydney Campuses.

Notre Dame also continues to excel nationally, being placed first in Australia for ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’ with a 91.1% rating, well above the national average of 79.3%. It is ranked second nationally for ‘Learner Engagement’ with a 78.6% rating, compared to 64.1% nationally, and ‘Skills Development’ at 90.7% compared to the national average of 81%.

Results from the undergraduate Graduate Outcomes Survey, released in January this year, show Notre Dame rated first in WA for ‘Overall Graduate Satisfaction’, ‘Teaching Scale’, ‘Skills Scale’, ‘Full-time Employment’, ‘Overall Employment’ and ‘Median Salary’.

NOTRE DAME VICE CHANCELLOR LEAVING

Posted in city of fremantle, education, learning, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on April 12, 2018

 

Prof Celia Hammond

 

The announcement by Fremantle Notre Dame University that Vice Chancellor Professor Celia Hammond will be leaving in 18 months at the end of 2019 comes as a big suprise.

I am a big admirer of the VC who is one of the most delightful and down to earth people one can have the pleasure to meet.

I first saw Celia Hammond at a leaders’ luncheon in the Esplanade Hotel many years ago where she spoke. Her intelligence, charm and self deprecating humour was inspiring and I have been a fan of her ever since.

Not once have I heard anyone say anything bad about the VC.  Lecturers, staff and students at Notre Dame University all have great respect for her and like her, as I do.

Celia Hammond has been at NDA for two decades and wants to move on and spend more time with her family, but she will be greatly missed at NDA and in Fremantle.

NOTRE DAME STUDENTS PARADE THROUGH FREO

Posted in city of fremantle, education, notre dame university, students, Uncategorized by freoview on February 23, 2018

 

 

Fremantle’s Notre Dame University held its annual O (Orientation) Day yesterday with information stalls and entertainment in Mouat Street and on campus.

After having been welcomed to NDA by Vice Chancellor Celia Hammond and a Noongar welcome to country, and a hello from Mayor Brad Pettitt the students paraded through the Freo town centre accompanied by a drum band. It’s always a lovely spectacle!

Welcome to uni and welcome to Freo. We love having you here!

FREO NOTRE DAME STUDENTS ARE BACK!

Posted in city of fremantle, education, learning, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on February 20, 2018

 

 

It is a delight to see all the Notre Dame University students back on the streets and in the cafes of the Fremantle West End.

I had a look at the refurbished Prindiville Hall where students can gather, relax and connect in several different sections of the building. They even put an entry in big enough to allow food trucks in for special events.

This Thursday at 4.15 pm the traditional annual student parade with drum band will snake through the Freo city centre, so give them a smile and a wave!
