The course has quite a lot that I didn't find interesting. The teachers are pretty good but could bring in more useful, engaging material within the coursework.

My advice to future students is: Try to spend some time learning about each area to get an understanding of which major you choose.

Didn’t enjoy the classes. Teachers were too strict and the classes were too big. Didn’t feel catered for in the classes. Struggled to understand content

My advice to future students is: Don’t do this class. Do something more practical, this has a lot of theory

There's lots of theory involved in this course. I find the text books were quite vague.

It is an interesting course but I will be transferring out of it though. Seems to be an interim course for a lot of people.

My advice to future students is: Don’t pathway, get directly into the course you want to do.

Positives: meeting new people and learning new things every week

Negatives: half of the topics seem useless and don’t interest me

My advice to future students is: pick something you’re passionate in if you don’t know what you want to do and you might find a career in it eventually
