Positives: This course is well set out and easy to follow through. It’s really good to be able to study education whilst being deeply involved with the college of science and engineering.
Negatives: It is quite demanding, the science side requires a lot of commitment
My advice to future students is: Make sure you have time, it really is a full time job.
Positives: we have great well experienced lectures who provide the best knowledge about each subject
Negatives: some compulsory subjects don’t seem like they’re relevant to the degree
My advice to future students is: knuckle down and have fun
This course requires students to complete 2 x field placements (1000 hours total) these placement are carried out in 3rd and 4th year (last 2 years) I think there should be placements all through the course - 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year (like the teaching degree).
So theory can be applied to real life practice sooner, rather then having to basically work full time to complete the hours in shorter time period - this also allows for placement providers to offer employment and possible another placement which students can be paid for in different areas.
My advice to future students is: Find out if there are online components to study - it's much easier. Text books are very expensive, find out if resources can be used online to prevent forking out money for books you only use for one semester
The positive were that it taught me a value system of my own and the mental health component was useful, negatives were that you needed supervision and experience to gain employment which aren't there.
My advice to future students is: Consider law
I enjoyed the face to face study but the online face needed a bit of work
My advice to future students is: Stay committed. Never give up
The positive would be it's something I want to do and the negative would be it takes up heaps of time and it's not guaranteeing a career
My advice to future students is: Be ready
The course itself is very interesting and engages with a lot of practical class activities and scenarios. The workshops are great because you get to interact with other people in smaller sessions, being able to debate on topics/issues whilst hearing different perspectives. It is a great and fun learning environment because of this. One negative is that there is a great deal of reading involved each week which can be easy to fall behind on.
My advice to future students - To make sure that they are well prepared and organised, planning each week out for assignments and reading so that they stay up to date - less stress.
Negative: Studies stretched to 4 years instead of 3. Not many electives allowed
Positive: Learn a variety of knowledge about the world, useful knowledge for the working world
I'd recommend this course to a friend
Positive: We learn a wide field of knowledge beyond just governmental studies and politics. Half of the degree involve studying business topics such as Human Resource Management and International Business. When a student of this course graduates, they will have an all-rounder knowledge of various field.
Negative: The course if often too short & rushed.
