I majored in IT and Security.

Positives: I loved IT security since I touch my first computer. And at that time I was an overseas student who lived in Sri Lanka . We had no opportunity to study that course . So I choose Australia .
That's aspect one . One choice .

2nd - I loved the teacher who taught the course . They had passion to live in that industry and teach us at the same time . They cared about us and helped us in every way

3rd - The course was very flexible . I had the chance to remotely complete and the uni understood international students emotions .
Payments were also very flexible with payment plans .

Negatives: I could have got industry experience, 6 months placement . Or something to put my step on IT INDUSTRY

My advice to future students is: FIND A UNI THAT HELPS YOU AND THINK ABOUT YOU.
Further look for a course with industry experience and job placement . That will help you make your life easier

Positives: As this is a combination of programming and strategy management. The course has many specializations to choose such as Data Analytics, IT Strategy Management and Software Services and Development. Hence helpful to learn a variety of units and gain knowledge on them.

Positives: This is designed in such a way that you can choose your specific area of interest like master in data analyst, networking, software Development and IT strategy and management along with the core unit related to information technology so you can study subjects related to the field that you need to work on and also helps in knowing broad knowledge on core information on the field

Negatives: Many projects and assignments in short span of time so that you can't learn very deep about any subject chosen

My advice to future students is: Lots of study/research has to be done by students than expecting it from the course or the lecture .. so that they can excel in the subjects enrolled

Positives: You can learn more about data and how to derive decisions from analysing that data

Negatives: This course enables you to be a data analyst right after course end and many people claim that it doesn't help you become a data developer. Maybe thats a problem but I never felt that.

My advice to future students is: If you are ready to dive into the world of data then this is the right course for you
