I couldn't recommend this enough

Loved learning new concepts of accounting

Some teachers should provide more/better feedback

I really liked this course. There were some elements that probably should be thought through more / updated / taught differently.

There are elements of the course that prepare you for work, but some which I probably wont look at or use again.

Positives
Excellent teachers, facilities and overall learning environment,
Negatives
Language barriers present amongst a few teachers and students, school management (delays etc)

My advice to future students is: Study hard, make use of all available resources, attend classes, communication with peers is key

I was able to learn a little bit about a whole range of commerce subjects however my major was accounting and I feel that the course did not cover enough of that. It was mostly theoretical and when i graduated I struggled to find an accounting position without any software experience. There was no mention of anything like MYOB or Xero which is so important in this day and age.

My advice to future students is: Read the course outline - and read JD's for potential jobs you might go for after you graduate and make sure you are learning the skills you need for the roles. If not make sure you go out there and get additional training.

Positives: Positive aspect include accounting units having good informative tutors. Assignments are help with knowledge.
University campus is amazing, especially the library.

Negatives: - As a commerce unit you are required to attempt units outside of accounting.
- Finance tutors are useless (based on 4 classrs). Lack the ability to teach
- Location can be annoying especially if you live further away. Impacts mainly group assignments
- A lot of international students, with minimal english skills (can be hard to communicate in group assignments)

My advice to future students is: - look into all possible options.
- Make sure you are okay with the travel required as attendance is becoming compulsory in most subjects (can fail units)
- explore the campus multiple times
