Positive: great learning experience, challenged my critical thinking and taught me life skills that i use in my job now
Negative: stressful around exam time especially with meeting hurdle requirements
My advice to future students is: Study something that you love and when things get hard always remember why you are studying it in the first place
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.
