Positives: There is so much support readily available at any stage through my course if it’s needed.
My lecturers are very engaging and I get a lot out of my classes.
I love the material I’m learning and I find it all relevant and beneficial to my future career.
Negatives: Sometimes it’s difficult to reach out and contact lecturers outside of University hours.
My advice to future students is: As I’m only in my first year I don’t have a lot of experience but my number one piece of advice is work as hard as you can, commit to class work and start assignments with plenty of time to complete. This makes assessment time a lot easier
Positives: There is a practical subject where you can practice techniques that you need as a degree qualified engineer and there are many different majors to go into
Negatives: Probably how quick some content is. And not all majors are studied in the first year round ie. Mining
This makes motivation a bit harder to keep
My advice to future students is: You have to be driven and ensure that you time manage everything. Don't leave assignments until last minute
Positives: Getting to study something I love and always wanted to do
Having the chance to connect with people doing similar thing to me
Negatives: Distance ed you feel isolated and alone
My advice to future students is: Set time aside each week don’t leave things to last minute and choose a course you are genuinely interested in
Positives: I get to learn how to do what I've wanted to do my whole life
Negatives: It's a lot of workload
My advice to future students is: Don't put it off, and don't fall behind
Positives: Great staff support and communications.
Negatives: Sometimes poor organisation of practical tasks.
My advice to future students is: Keep yourself motivated and stay up to date with work.
Positives: Learning fundamental skills for not only aspects of education but human development
Negatives: None so far
My advice to future students is: Do the assignments when you get them!
Positives: It gives me a relevant qualification
Negatives: I have difficulty reading so it’s hard
My advice to future students is: Be prepared to study
Positives: I love the hands on experiences of the course, we get a lot of clinical sessions which is great, then we have placement - a great way to implement the skills learn
Negatives: A lot of it is distance, which makes it hard to stay on track
My advice to future students is: To make sure they stay on top of work, or know when assignments are due
Positives: really good with the actual sonography aspect as in the first few weeks you already start learning about the profession and how to read ultrasounds, however the anatomy subject is very full-on and the research skills subject is unnecessary
My advice to future students is: Be prepared to put a lot of time into the assignments and make sure you understand all the topics at the end of the week rather than going into the next week still confused
I'm doing this via distance.
Positives: The content and reasoning behind wanting to become a paramedic.
Negatives: There is none.
My advice to future students is: Keep on top of your study!
