Positives: Great lecturers, practical experience

Negatives: Parking on campus was awful, doing a double degree across fields and campuses left me a little socially isolated

My advice to future students is: Know what your end goal is and get as much industry experience as you can while you study

Positives: The teachers are helpful and enthusiastic, the assignments are very practical and applicable to real life so we get a great heads up, and most subjects are quite interesting

Negatives: Lectures can sometimes be really long-winded and some teachers go a bit fast

My advice to future students is: I would say to go to every lecture and workshop and concentrate and start revision before study week

Positives: The Lecturers were great especially the 2nd and 3rd year ones, they always set aside time to meet with students if there were questions. Exam prep was good too, I felt really prepared.

Negatives: There were too many people in the year one classes. This is probably because all year ones had to do the same modules regardless of what specialisation they wanted. Also the Nathan campus was up a hill in the middle of nowhere which isn’t great.

My advice to future students is: Think hard about your future and pick a course from there, don’t be swayed by what your family want you to do or what your friends advise you.

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: I find all the tutors, lectures and course convenors super helpful. There are great assurance programs offered to get high grades called PASS sessions which are run really well and when doing these I nearly always achieve a 6 or 7. I also find that assessment items are thoroughly explained and lots of preparation is given before you are expected to start each assessment.

Negatives: It is quite boring and repetitive. Most of the subjects I am doing now in 3rd year are extremely similar. I dislike having trimesters also as sometimes it can feel like assessment items are rushed to get them all done before the trimester is over and then if you don’t do trimester 3 you have a massive 5 month holiday at the end of the year (which seems like a good thing but it’s just a bit too long of a break).

My advice to future students is: Definitely make the most of all the PASS sessions you can!

I majored in Accounting.

Positives: Would definitely be the support from both the teachers and students. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming

Negatives: The negatives would have to be the amount of assignments and exams but really that's to be expected in such a degree

My advice to future students is: Look at all coursework and pre requisites before applying. Different universities have different methods in teaching and structures
