The lecturers were fantastic and for a paramedic degree this is the place to go as it is becoming extremely well known and recommended amongst services in Australia.

The equipment was up to date and all chances to practice were met with heaps of help from lecturers.

Negatives would have to be the fact that there were opportunities provided but were only given to students who sucked up and not decided upon equally. A lot of people find the distance study a struggle but for me i didn't really have any issues with it as there was still heaps of help available

My advice to future students is: To keep in mind this is a very competitive career to get a job in and if you want one of the few jobs currently available make sure you're willing to move. This is something you uni wont say as they would have less intake.

Structure of subjects were good. Lecturers gave good supplementary informations, links and related matter. The placement timetables were also good in duration and layout as there were 3 in total.

Negatives are that on the final placement there are still classes that have not been finished. This meaning that you still do not know all of your needed information before finishing your final placement. It would be better if you could practice all knowledge learnt in the degree whilst on placement.

My advice to future students is: Make the most of your placements and gain as much knowledge from other paramedics as possible, but don't forget to enjoy yourself. Getting a job in the end will be difficult but try to be persistent and not lose hope.
