Positives: The University has a great reputation, is very well connected internationally (it has campuses in South Africa as well as Malaysia, as well as a study centre in Italy), and the academics that delivered the course were obviously great in their field. I learned a lot about the world and drew a broad education from the degree.

Negatives: Career prospects within the field (International Relations) are limited and there is no real pathway into the field through the course. It felt a lot like the university just wanted to attract as many students as possible with no regard for their career after graduating.

My advice to future students is: A piece of advice I would offer future students would be to consider doing a double degree, pairing international relations (or any Arts major), with another degree in a more in-demand field, most likely STEM.

Positive- the course is very well structured and the content very interesting. The job outcomes are great.

Negatives - a few of my tutors speak broken English which makes tutorials very difficult

My advice to future students is: Take the course and be prepared to absorb amazing information! Don’t worry about the amount of content (I have 12 contact hours maximum)!! It is amazing

The Master of Counselling is much better (than my undergrad). It is well organised, well resourced, and the teachers seem passionate about education.

Positive : there is a lot of interesting information to learn and great teachers there for support. I honestly feel like I am being educated.

Negative : with arts you have to be willing to put in time and effort to actually get the most you can out of it. A lot of reading to put the pieces together.

My advice to future students is: If you decide to do a course, do it like you mean it
