I haven’t really started classes yet but I’ve been looking through the coursework and it all looks very interesting and easy enough to understand. The learning portal seems easy to navigate

My advice to future students is: Pick something you’re passionate about

Positives - easy to understand content.

Negatives - not enough placement, and some subjects were too general

My advice to future students is: Make sure you look into other universities as some may provide more placement opportunity

Positives: Being in a small uni, I am able to interact with my peers and have strong bonds and relationships with my lecturers. With the resources provided I am generally able to understand upcoming assessment tasks and what is needed to be done.

Negatives: Due dates are not spoken to us, classes are often pointless and sometimes do not relate to what we are going through the online resources

My advice to future students is: Make sure you get in and knuckle down from the start, things come at you before you know it and sometimes it becomes quite stressful. I recommend having an accessible calendar or diary to acknowledge due dates and upcoming events.
