I majoring in English Literature

Positives: The positive aspects of the course, are that it teaches students skills that are versatile and transferable to different areas. Students are taught to think critically, and how to communicate in the modern world.

As a student, I feel like the course is designed, with me in mind. A lot of support is provided, and the instructors are always there to help.

Negatives: It can sometimes feel like some of the subjects aren't relevant to my future. There also isn't a lot of flexibility in what electives you can choose.

My advice to future students is: I would advise future students to be proactive and ask for help if they need it. The instructors are very accommodating and are there to support you, in furthering your education. Don't feel like any question is too small or too silly. The instructors are there to help you succeed.

The courses are well run. Lectures are very approachable and will offer assistance where possible. The university environment is quite comfortable, some courses require little to no extra work whilst other require your full commitment. You are encouraged to learn at your own pace and answer/ask lots of questions.

Positives: The course is related to accountancy and book keeping. So it will lead you to have skills related to all the laws related to accountancy ,and accounting systems. It can skill you for CPA as well. Inclusive of all the financing activities in a corporate level.

Negatives: There are 12 core subjects which may be a difficulty. A person other than from an accounting background may feel a bit tough to clear this course. Other than this everything about this course is good.

My advice to future students is: The major core out of this course is accounting which is the first step to understand all the subjects. So, from the start all the students should be serious about this course

Positives: The positive aspects of my course are the group activities and assessments because it is a real world application of architects. Working with your peers is like working in an architecture firm with your colleagues to find solutions for projects.

Negatives: Sometimes working individually, whilst it might seem easier to work with one mindset, delegating tasks to different people gives a project variety and a certain uniqueness that one person cannot create alone. This is a negative aspect.

My advice to future students is: Something I'm only doing in my final year is finally getting to know my peers and working with them productively instead of avoiding them and seeing them as competition. You are all in this together, and whether you like it or not these people will contribute more than you think to the beginning of your career. Their advice, criticism and friendship prove very valuable in the long run.

Positives: It’s great entry point to university if you didn’t complete year 12. The courses are delivered in a smaller class size than university which is great to get used to the higher education learning environment.

Negatives: You feel kind of seperate to the university lifestyle/social aspect

My advice to future students is: Just give it a go. This is a great way to kickstart your degree and upon completing a diploma at the college you will go into your second year of your selected degree at university. So you’re basically doing your first year of your degree with a bit of a boost in support

Positives: Working with lecturers who have real experience in the field, it encompasses all facets of journalism, and shows the good and bad sides to working as a journalist.

Negatives: Other than the first trimester of the first year not having enough core subjects, there aren't really any negatives I've come across so far. (I am only in my first year however)

My advice to future students is: Study! Keep on top of your work! Make sure to speak to your lecturers and the people running your tutes, they're there to help you. AND PAY ATTENTION TO THE NEWS. ALWAYS. THEY WILL TEST YOU ON CURRENT EVENTS.

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!
