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.

Positives: the teachers are very engaged and the field is expanding quickly. i also like being able to learn so much about so many social issues that are present in the world.

Negatives: the course is very modern and only draws on a lot of the most modern literature. this isnt normally a problem, but with such socially modern topics, it can be jarring when im learning about social elements that arent even accepted in society yet

My advice to future students is: to do what you enjoy, i tried other courses before this one and they never worked out. now that im doing something i think ill actually be able to enjoy in the future its much easier to stay engaged

Positives: It covered a very broad range of topics, an was extremely flexible as far as offering on-line subjects and 2 week summer courses

Negatives: It was not very flexible in the topics that could be chosen...a majority of topics were core topics with no room for movement. The job prospects afterwards are not huge.

My advice to future students is: Ensure this course I going to suit all of your needs. There are different streams so choose wisely to ensure it is going to be everything you want it to be, as there is not much flexibility within the streams

Positives: It’s quite easy to understand what is required of you whilst studying the course. Most of the lecturers understand that for most of the students it’s their first time at a University and so are quite good at helping students understand university requirements

Negatives: A couple of the core topics start of relatively easy and then all of a sudden are very hard and it is difficult to keep up with it

My advice to future students is: Definitely make sure that you study a lot and keep on top of your work. It makes a huge difference
