Positives: The course has great subjects and the University makes a massive effort to get teachers to teach the subject that have experience in that area or are deans of research on the subject. So you feel like you are getting taught by people who really know their stuff
Negatives: There are some courses which are similar to others so you cover the same content within a couple of subjects
My advice to future students is: To definitely take the course if they are interested in government and international relations. I would say go in with an open mind and take the degree course by course. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed (especially if you are younger) as politics and the history of it are complex but hang in there!
I did honours as well.
Positives: Lecturing and research staff were very engaging and always available to discuss course content or career outcomes. The material was fresh and up to date. The lectures were interesting. Content was delivered thoughtfully and in a way that involved the students as much as possible
Negatives: No negatives, I love it. The only fault I could find is that Griffith doesn't have the name of UQ or QUT. However, in this particular field, Griffith does amazing work and gets good recognition.
My advice to future students is: Utilise your lecturers and researchers for advice and hands on experience like tutoring, internships etc. Get involved as much as possible. Make good use of the excellent online system.
