Positives: This course is very textbook orientated, which is good for people who like that.

Negatives: Hard to get support from teachers. Lectures are mostly reading from the textbook

My advice to future students: You will need to do a lot of independent self guided study

Positives: I really enjoy the social aspect of the university, there are many places to meet up with friends aswell as meet new people

Negatives: I wish there were more contact hours. I find I learn much better when a physical person is teaching it rather than an online file

My advice to future students: Stay ahead. Don’t fall behind.... it is very hard to catch up

Positives: The first thing I loved and what made me choose this university over others also providing this course was the location and facilities. This university is not like any others I have seen. The views are amazing and a great way to study. The facilities are modern and there are always places to study.

Negatives: That if you want to receive the social work association accreditation you must do a on campus course. This isn’t offered online which for a full time worker and a mother of three is very hard

My advice to future students is: Not to waste your time on a course your not passionate about. It’s a waste of time and money. Flinders offer open days to help you choose what you could study

Positives: The content is engaging and relevant to past, present and future media. It’s always being updated because there are new things coming out everyday.

Negatives: Sometimes the content can be dry. You have to participate in topics that you are uninterested in to do those you are interested in. The course is very broad which is good and bad.

My advice to future students is: The second year blues are real. After the first year you start to lose motivation. Keep going, persist unless you are really sure it isn’t for you. Take advantage of the tutors because they have interesting people giving their time to sharing their passion with you. Good luck

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
