Only Rule and 2003 New Programs source :
Shafston International College
College 'English Only Rule' gets tougher!
ELICOS students at Shafston are expected to only ever use English on
campus. This is strictly enforced in the classroom by the '3 strike
rule'. If a student speaks in their mother tongue they are given 2
warnings, the 3rd time they will have to leave the class for the
remainder of the lesson. In force NOW!
Centre for Information
Technology at Shafston Institute of Technology Appoints Local IT
The University of New England @ Shafston and
Shafston Institute of Technology continue to expand their range of
courses. Mr Roy O'Malley is now the Director of the Centre for
Information Technology at SIT. Roy has had over 30 years experience in
education and was most recently the director of a well known local VET
college with over 3,500 students.
From February 2003 SIT's Information Technology Centre is running the
following IT diplomas:
Business Analysis (E Commerce)
Software Development (Databases)
Wireless Internet Access
Shafston now offers high speed WIRELESS internet
access to all students. Students with their own laptop computer simply
need to register with our IT Department (Rm 209) who will take them
through the simple setup process. Once they have registered they will
be able to logon to the internet via their own laptop at any time they
are on campus - no cables required! As we are using state of the art
equipment the speed is very high - around 11mb/sec. Cost $5/week
(unlimited high speed remote access).
