A little bit about Flinders University

Flinders University has one main campus based in Bedford Park, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. It offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

We have a range of Flinders University reviews across different topics, including Arts, Legal Studies, Commerce, IT, Social Work, Engineering, Health, Nursing and Science.

Based on the Flinders student reviews, here's some of the advice we've collated:
Don't slack off- you will need to be able to study self guided, this isn't like secondary school;
Take advantage of any industry network opportunities you get, even at the beginning of your course;
Spend time thinking about the right course for you - go to open days, speak to students, read reviews (😜) and look up course guides;
Speak to the tutors, they can be really interesting and give you great info, ideas and contacts;
Form study groups at Uni - it's a good way to practice your communication skills and make friends.

Positives: Registered nurse entry is a 1-year addition for those who have studied midwifery or in another medical field. The 1-year course consists of hands-on lectures and tutorials building upon the skills that have already been attained through previous learning. This course sets you up to be able to successfully transition from the current position into the nursing field.

Negatives: The placement process required for completion of the course can be challenging. Especially juggling full-time work around the hours required for successful completion. This is made especially hard when the placement needs to be in a different hospital from one in which you are employed.

My advice to future students is: If you have the chance to study this course it will benefit you greatly in the medical field as it gives you the skills necessary to work as a registered nurse. The tutorials and lectures are up to date with current practice.

Positives: 1. It develops students problem-solving skills, because you need to cope with a lot of assignment and figure out how to do it. Flinders University provides a lot of student support services, and you can use those sources to assist yourself. For example, student learning center... etc.

Negatives: As an international student, I found out we pay too much to gain a degree, and the course does not make me feel worthy to pay. For example, I only have one class every week, but I have to pay $3800 for total six classes. so costly

My advice to future students is: Preparing your English skills, because it is really important for your course involving discussion with your classmate.
