Posted February 03, 2019 09:15:42 In an interview with Australia’s ABC radio program, university professor Robert Fenton said he was hoping to do a study abroad trip to Australia this year.
“I’ve been thinking of going to Australia for about five years,” he said.
“There are so many opportunities in Australia for a student to study.
I just hope to go for it and get involved in Australia and meet Australians, because it’s such a beautiful country.”
Fenton, who has studied at the University of Western Australia and is also a visiting professor at the Australian National University, said he had applied to study in Australia three times in the past few years, but each time he had been turned down.
“Every time I applied, I’d get an email back saying it was because the university wasn’t interested in it,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“And so, I just had to say, ‘You know what?’ because the whole thing is just so incredibly expensive.”
Fernandon said he applied to the University’s Graduate Study and Research Centre, but had been rejected three times.
“They just don’t want you here, and so they said, ‘Oh well, we’re not going to bother you’,” he said, explaining that he was told that the university didn’t want to put him through the formal application process.
“So I went back, and then they said ‘Oh, we really think you’d make a good student, we’ve got lots of good people in this area, so why don’t you apply for this job?'”
He said that he had recently found out he was eligible for the post-doctoral position, but that he would need to apply for a different position to be considered.
“It’s not just about the money, it’s also about the opportunity to do something meaningful with your time and your talents,” he added.
“What are you going to do with that?”‘
There’s nothing like it’In an online petition, Fenton has written to the Victorian Government calling for changes to the process for overseas study, which he said was based on “excessive bureaucracy”.
“The system is based on a bureaucratic approach to research and the university system,” he wrote in the petition.
Fonston told ABC News that he thought the petition was a good idea, but the Commonwealth Government had been a bit slower to respond to it.””
I think the Australian Government should be more involved with this and make sure that overseas students are properly prioritised.”
Fonston told ABC News that he thought the petition was a good idea, but the Commonwealth Government had been a bit slower to respond to it.
“That’s a good question and I think it’s something that we need to have a look at and think about,” he acknowledged.
“If we have any sort of review, it should be a review of the university’s position and whether we should change this or not.”
