Positives: The lecturers and tutors are so supportive from the first day right to the last. The course material is details and covers a range of all topics. The PACE units allow us to interact with real companies and real problems and allow us to use our the knowledge gained to help them. This is an awesome way to give us an understanding of what it is like in business

Negatives: Some of the lecturers were hard to follow and didn’t seem to cover all the relevant material in the course. But other than that I don’t think there were any major negatives

My advice to future students is: Make sure you keep up with the homework and tutorial tasks. Make friends within the course as they are always helpful. Buy second hand textbooks where you can. Use the resources available from the library. They are serious life savers and help you get the most marks possible

Positives: A good lot of tutors and convenors to help. A great cohort of students.

Negatives: Some core units are not taught well (e.g business organisations)

My advice to future students is: Stay on top of everything. Make sure you pick the course you would love to see yourself in. Don’t do anything based on someone else’s perspectives on what you should or can study.

Negatives: n/a

My advice to future students is: to go into every course with an open mind as you aren't sure what is entailed and you might just change your mind

Positives: I enjoy how broad my course is, as it gives an outlook into the whole business sector as a whole. It gives students a lot of freedom to pick a major or even two which interests them and then adds a more narrow focus into this area. I also get a good selection of electives and get to learn about other courses which i take interest in such as cognitive science

Negatives: The business world is so broad!!! At the end its kind of daunting to think i will have a bachelor in commerce, and with this i can do almost anything....
People also tend to look at individuals doing a business degree as people with lack of direction, and well i guess that is currently what i have.

My advice to future students is: STUDY WHAT INTERESTS YOU! if you choose to spend hours of endless study , learning about a course which bores you or you find to difficult you will very quickly hate your time at uni.

Dont know what you want to do? just start somewhere simple such as an Arts degree and pick a broad range of units to give you a taste of each area.

Positives: It's compulsory for all first year commerce students to complete a range of subjects - marketing, finance, accounting, stats etc. As a first year student that didn't know exactly what major I wanted to pursue, I thought this was a great initiative as it gave me the opportunity to learn what each major was about and see if it was for me.

Negatives: They didn't encourage students to seek work experience within their field or provide opportunities to gain real work experience. Also didn't know about any international exchange opportunities

My advice to future students is: It's okay if you realise that the course you got into isn't what you thought it would be. Reach out to your tutors/lecturers as much as you can, as they're there to help out.
