I am a student of Class XII and my combination is accountancy, business economics, management, business maths, English, Hindi, and maths as the additional subject. I want to pursue a double major in ethics, economics (BSc), statistics/politics and international studies from Harvard or Yale. How do I go about it and what will it cost '
The course you want to pursue is not compatible with either of the universities. Harvard does not have double majors. It has something called a “joint concentration”, which is a single concentration that combines study in two areas.
At Yale you can major in ethics, politics, and economics (BA). International studies can be taken only as a second major. Specific course selection and choices of linked majors should be made in consultation with the director of undergraduate studies. You can browse through the following link, which details the procedure: http://www.yale.edu/admit/international/index.html.
Tuition fees for 2005-06 was $31,460. Room and board was $9,540. Books, supplies, and personal expenses were estimated at $2,800.
I am A second year BSc student doing a basic course in photography from a professional institute. I want to pursue my postgraduation in advertising and fashion photography from Australia. Please let me know about the universities and the approximate course fees.
Postgraduation courses in advertising and fashion photography offered by Australian universities are essentially theory and research-based. RMIT University offers a postgraduate degree in photography. Some universities like Griffith University and University of Sydney offer photography at the graduate level.
A professional institute would be a better bet. The International College of Professional Photography in Melbourne specialises in the areas of fashion, glamour, portrait, advertising, etc. It offers advanced diploma, diploma and certificate courses and includes a photographic business study programme. Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE offers photography courses for both beginners and the experienced. The nationally accredited diploma of arts-applied photography course provides practical training for professional photographers. Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) is an organisation of photographers and industry representatives who seek to set the standard for excellence in the industry.
The fees for graduate diploma and masters can vary from A$12,000 to A$18,000, and for vocational education and training, it may range between A$8,000 and A$12,000.
