Join us on our 9th year of providing interactive, problem-based & targeted GAMSAT attendance courses on UWA campus!

We understand the GAMSAT to be a reasoning exam rather than knowledge-based and have designed our courses to help you optimise the skills that are being assessed in the test.

Our problem-based learning method lets you approach the test as a learning experience - almost everything you need to answer a question can be found on the exam paper!

Develop exam-level reasoning skills as you learn proven strategies from the author of the first GAMSAT textbook ever written, The Gold Standard GAMSAT, and whose experience in teaching the GAMSAT spans over 9 years.

Purchase any 3 days and attend another full day of your choice, for free!

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Overcoming the challenges of making high quality cross-national comparisons. The example of the European Social Survey Website | More Information
A public lecture by Professor Rory Fitzgerald, Director, European Social Survey, City, University of London and UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

In this public lecture Professor Rory Fitzgerald will first outline the challenges of cross-national measurement using social surveys and outline how the European Social Survey (ESS) has tried to address them. These include issues related to sampling, questionnaire design, translation, fieldwork and data processing amongst others.

He will then use his own research to show how combining multiple waves of the ESS allowed an examination of the attitudes of migrants moving from Eastern to western Europe in their attitudes towards homosexuality. Do migrant attitudes change if they move from one context to another?

In the final part of the lecture Professor Fitzgerald will give some examples of how the ESS has been used both in academia and beyond and will make the case for developing an Australian sister survey to the ESS.

18:00 - EVENT - How to achieve a sustainable blue economy Website | More Information
A public lecture by Professor Rashid Sumaila, Director, Fisheries Economics Research Unit, University of British Columbia and UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

A crucial question still facing humanity is how to successfully manage the ocean to ensure long term sustainability. In this lecture Professor Sumaila will explore this question couched around three key issues, ie, how we tackle global warming and climate change; how we implement public policies such as the provision of government subsidies to the fisheries sector; and how we manage the high seas.

Professor Sumaila will argue that the chance of managing our ocean successfully for people and nature depends strongly on our ability to tackle the issues that affect the conservation and fair sharing of benefits from our ocean in such a way that positive feedbacks are transmitted between the two. The alternative is for negative feedbacks from conservation to people, and vice versa, to the detriment of both people and nature.

Professor Rashid Sumaila, Director of the Fisheries Economics Research Unit at the University of British Columbia is a globally recognized fisheries economist, with over 230 peer-reviewed publications, and over 60 books or book chapters. He has a Google Scholar h-index of 70 with over 20,000 citations. Rashid specializes in bioeconomics, marine ecosystem valuation and the analysis of global issues such as fisheries subsidies, IUU (illegal, unreported and unregulated) fishing and the economics of high and deep seas fisheries. Professor Sumaila has experience working in fisheries and natural resource projects in Norway, Canada and the North Atlantic region, Namibia and the Southern African region, Ghana and the West African region and Hong Kong and the South China Sea.

Professor Sumaila is a UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow and a UWA Forrest Visiting Fellow.

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Mining Waste Environments: globally significant and growing biogeochemical hotspots Website | More Information
A public lecture by Professor Lesley A. Warren, Director, Lassonde Institute of Mining, University of Toronto and UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

Globally, extractive industries are estimated to produce 7.2 billion tons of waste and use 7-9 billion cubic metres of water; creating one of the fastest growing and least well studied biogeochemical contexts on the planet. Tailings, containing reactive sulfur, iron, nitrogen and carbon compounds, represent the largest global mining environmental liability. Currently, it is difficult for mines to design tailings impoundments or develop effective management and reclamation approaches, because the microbial processes that generate impacts remain a black box. However, as mining landscapes continue to grow world-wide, the fundamental lessons learned in these contexts are also required to better inform our understanding of global biogeochemical cycling.

In this lecture, Professor Warren will present results from both metal and oil sands mining contexts, where we have begun to address this knowledge gap through the joint application of genomics and geochemistry. Research to date provides fascinating glimpses of extensive and often surprising biogeochemical cycling within these environments, as well as distinctive microbial communities that interactively shape biogeochemical outcomes.
