Really knowledgeable lecturers and decent resources.

Unfortunately due to lack of funding we are unable to use or create many of the devices that we need. This means that we are not fully prepared for placement in fourth year.

My advice to future students is: Make sure all lectures are watched, particularly from second year onwards. Make sure your cast mods are perfect before you laminate/mould

Love the amount of hands on work we get to do. We are constantly placed in situations that allow us to understand how the class is run, and we are offered heaps of opportunities to learn to teach the classes as well.

My advice to future students is: Learning how to teach a class is a great insight into the way you were taught during school, absolutely would recommend

Positive - the campus close is to home, I've been able to meet new friends
Negative - lecturers are hard to contact for help. This could be better addressed.

My advice to future students is: Don’t study unless you are ready. You have to be ready to apply yourself fully. It’s better to get life experience beforehand and find out who you are and what you want before studying

I find classes very interesting, although in first year there's a lot of theory and not very relatable classes but hold in there, it gets more interesting.

You just have to work for it

My advice to future students is: Stick it out, it’s a lot of work and time but it’s worth it in the end

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

There are so many classes (and contact hours) and I’m always super busy but I enjoy all of it.

I’ve made so many new friends and have had so many experiences and loved them all. Would definitely recommend.

My advice to future students is: Always pick a course you will be interested in don’t do something boring you will regret it

I liked the course content on offer as part of the degree. You get to select your major.

I wasn’t a fan of the studying format so much but I guess that is part of university.

Will be returning in a couple of years to do more.

My advice to future students is: Make sure you know what you want from life, don’t let people change your mind

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.
