Interesting content with helpful academic staff and tutors.
Plenty of support services on offer.
Attendance predicts success at university.
The positives are that its so easy to get help and the tutorials are very helpful for student to learn how to do the tasks and understand the content.
The negative would be more tutorials
My advice to future students is: To make sure to never miss a tutorial as its vital and hard to catch up when you miss one. The course is such a fast paced study
Interesting and engaging content
Griffith University’s introduction of trimesters has condensed course content
My advice to future students is:
-Have a realistic and achievable study/work/life balance
-be involved in university events and activities
-enjoy your time at University
Positive it is very interesting and covers many aspects of the mind and how the brain work
Negative it has no practical aspect
My advice to future students is: To try not think about the big picture of things and concentrate on what you need to do in the now rather then the future
Positives are that it’s very interesting and the lecturers were active researchers so they were giving us up to date information on recent literature etc.
However the course could have been a tiny bit more hands on and more contact hours such as more seminars and workshops. It makes all the reading more enjoyable and easier to retain if you are actively learning it with others!
My advice to future students is: Make sure you allocate daily hours to read and write up notes even if you aren’t in lectures that day as it will make life so much easier for exams and assignments! E.g just one hour a day
Positives: learning interesting things about the mind and how it functions and how to help people
Negatives: sometimes difficult when learning about the brain/body as it can be confusing
My advice to future students is: pay attention in lectures and attend all tutorial session
Positives: It’s interesting and you study a broad ranges of niches
Negatives: 0 job prospects at the end because you get no experience
My advice to future students is: Try to find work experience throughout your degree
Positives: I love my course because of how interesting it is, the content and the way the lecturers and tutors present the info!
Negatives: In my opinion I don’t believe there are any negative aspects
My advice to future students is: Study!!! The workload is intense, but bearable if you keep up to date with your work.
Positives: The course was well organised and Griffith University is known for having an excellent applied psychology program. Griffith is an extremely inclusive and friendly environment to be in and most of the lecturers and tutors for my psychology subjects were incredible academics and great teachers. It was easy to make friends and study in groups and we had an amazing peer study sessions.
Negatives: At times, there were some disorganised moments in regards to classes, assessments and receiving marks back in a timely fashion. Occasionally, lecturers, however intelligent they were, lacked teaching skills, which made it hard to learn and understand concepts. There was sometimes discrepancies in what was taught during semester and what was actually on the exams, which caused a bit of frustration for students.
My advice to future students is: To go to class and take as many notes as you can by listening to the lecturers. Quite often they mention important things that aren't written in the lecture notes or textbook. Remember they're the ones who write the exams, so there is always some sneaky hidden information in their lectures!
Positives: Student internship I completed which was actually an elective
I found this really helpful in providing experience of how to use my skills practically
Negatives: The course was very theoretical and not as practical as I hoped
My advice to future students is: Get into it and work in the field you hope to to into. Even if it's just work experience it's still great and helpful for you in the long-run!
