Positives: Practical, hands on, real world, well organised, great lecturers, interesting content

Negatives: difficult theory, hard work, long hours, lots of group work

My advice to future students is: It is a great course if you are mathematically/scientifically minded, love learning real-world concepts, looking to learn important team work and communication skills that aren't as prevalent in other courses and interested in being challenged. In particular, the first year of the course gives an excellent snapshot of the different engineering fields and lets you try each one before making an informed decision of which major will be best for you!

Positives: This course allows you to major in a variety of fields relevant to scientific research.

Sound overviews of Occupational Health and Safety (OH and S) policies and Good Laboratory practices (GLP) two key requirements for scientific research.

Negatives: The wide variety of subjects on offer made it difficult to choose a specific field to major in.

My advice to future students is: In your first year choose a wide variety of subjects as possible and then focus your attention and choose subjects that you love and excel at.

Positives: The course provided a solid introduction to the teaching profession. It provided a combination of theory based learning, focused on contemporary pedagogical frameworks and related practices. The course also provided two opportunities for industry placements which allowed me to make important contacts within the education community.

Negatives: The course was rigid in the choices offered for subject selection. The course had predetermined subjects which were also prerequisites. The elective choices were limited to only two units.

My advice to future students is: This course provides a good introduction to potential students who wish to enter the teaching profession. It acts both as a foundation platform into further education in the education field as well as a basic degree for those who wish to enter teaching.

Positives: The course provides a great introduction to a foundation science degree. It offered ample flexibility to select from a range of units, that lends the student to a career in various fields involving science. The course affords students the options to also select elective subjects from other faculties which provides a platform for either further study in a different field, or simply, retaining student engagement in the course.

Negatives: Whilst the course provides ample opportunity to select units from other faculties, the course offered limited variation of subjects within the earlier years.

My advice to future students is: Students should consider the Bachelor of Science course as an introductory degree. It offers a wide range of subjects and great flexibility. However, the course itself did not secure me a permanent ongoing position of employment. It did however, provide me a pathway into a different career which I am still thoroughly enjoying after eight years of work.

Positives: This course provides you hands on experience in the field of internetworking security issues, exploring vulnerabilities and threats, finding their respective solutions.
As the world is being digitalized, it is necessarily needed to be protected due to the frequent occurrence of cyber-crimes .

My advice to future students is: This course really provide you immense knowledge of networks and security issues related to it. You can even secure your own digital devices and networks from cyber-attacks. Lack of knowledge about this course might lead you to big loss of billions.
