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: Meeting new people is amazing. Property side of my course is a 10/10 as I love the lecturers and tutors that teach this course and they give it their all. I love meeting people from everywhere at uni and they provide networking functions that I love.

Negatives: Commerce tutors don’t really help you and when you struggle, I find it hard to find support. They have help sessions that I unfortunately can not attend which makes it harder for me.

My advice to future students is: Make sure that you go to lectures and seminars, otherwise it is extremely easy to fail - I have done this and regret it! And don’t be shy to go up to people and say hi to them.

Positives: Lecturers and tutors were doing amazing job explaining great details towards the course, they were willing to stay with you until you fully understood!
