I find Uni.. Overall a positive experience, but not a ticket to a job - you must seek outside/adjunct opportunities to really succeed.
Positives: Good quality academic staff/materials, excellent campus facilities, good internship/travel abroad opportunities.
Negatives: Poor student services, long waiting times for information relating to enrolments/changes.
My advice to future students is: Read all the course rules very carefully, A300 (Bachelor if Arts) is very flexible but you need to select carefully as to graduate.
Positives: The course provides a good variety of interesting and applicable classes that prepare me for employment
Negatives: I find that sometimes there is a lack of communication in terms of what is required of me
My advice to future students is: It's OK to be unsure of what you want from a course/degree
Positives: - the friends you make along the way - i have made so many friends for life with the same interests that i have which is great
- placement - all the lives you can impact in such a short amount of time really drives you to want to finish your course
- the flexibility for studying - being able to lower the work load throughout the year and doing intensive units over summer. I studied 3 years full time and i am studying my final year part time over two years so i can work more and study at the same time
Negatives: the way the assignments and units are planned. lots of conflicting information throughout guides and teachers word. different teachers say different things. assignments can be quite difficult and stressful to decipher at times
My advice to future students is: i wish i hadve studied part time the whole time even if it hadve taken longer!
start assignments earlier than you think you need to
Positives: Able to apply better communication in real working industry
Negatives: Too much reading
My advice to future students is: Decide carefully what u love to do
Positives: It gives you alot of hands on experience in each of my units. We are required to do alot of discussion and work from our own thoughts and ideas
Negatives: My university doesnt provide the best favilities for certain units within the course
My advice to future students is: You do not need to select a major straight away,you can use your first year to explore different units within the arts degree and decide on your path
I'm majoring in Information Systems.
Positives: Give me an opportunity to work in an industry I like
Negatives: Competive course so one needs go be on top of their game at all times
My advice to future students is: The amount of commitment the course requires
Positives: It gives me the qualification to attain my ambition as a economists and gives me insight to the real world situation of how my job would pan out and what is expected of me. The provider itself very easy to work with, no confusions when it comes to assignment submissions and payments
Negatives: The university requires an international student to sit for 8units per year regardless of any circumstance and this can sometime take a role
My advice to future students is: Better advice on unit combination per semester
Positives: This course was very engaging and the different units varied in levels of difficulty. There was also a broad range of subjects - touching on topics such as child development to biological psychology. All of which were very interesting and provided with many materials to study.
Negatives: I personally did not find the tutors or the lecturers to be very welcoming. I was not able to connect with them pass a "student/teacher" relationship, therefore it prevented me from being comfortable with asking them about prospective jobs, referrals for relevant external courses or jobs. Also, some of the assignments for a few of the subjects did not seem 100% relevant and/or it was far too difficult with the limited assistance/instructions provided by the faculty.
My advice to future students: It is definitely a worthwhile course. Although my core subjects were psychology related, my course being an Arts degree allowed me to have an arts elective which gives a lot more freedom to the students and also touch on other topics of interest.
Positives: Just being able to learn about a whole lot of new things in the legal world
My advice to future students is: Start early, get up to date with everything and don’t fall behind
Positives: Making friends and a relaxed campus environment
Negatives: Big workload
My advice to future students is: Make friends and do your assignments early
