Positives: It's interesting as. Learning basically about human medicine.
Negatives: you will have to complete lots of reading and study a lot. The study is heaps big, I mean this is like pre-med so you should be willing to study tremendously if you wanna get good grades
My advice to future students is: Be willing to put in the work and attend all lectures!
Positives: I think that it provides great diversity and employment options. It provides a good variety and options of units to study too which are really refreshing especially over a long course. You get to merge concepts between commerce and law as you study too.
Negatives: It took too long. Needed more flexibility with the law units but double degree structure was too rigid
My advice to future students is: Work in various jobs for free. Take work experience seriously to try to see what you like before committing to a course
I majored in Mechanical Engineering.
Positives: As an engineer you are challenged to think and think hard. It is a hard course, i have suffered quite a lot, but it has opened up my thinking capabilities, which are very useful in today's market.
Negatives: The workload, which is immense and also having to learn concepts which at times you might have to teach yourself. You have to be self-sufficient and more importantly be willing to put in extra effort.
My advice to future students is: Be willing to work hard, that's the most practical advice i can give. For some people who are smart and easily understand concepts, might be easy for them, but if you work really hard, many sleepless nights and mental fortitude to push through, you can do it.
Positives: Can make good/lifetime friends whom you can stick together through thick and thin :D study together and struggle through uni together
Negatives: Stressful even though every course is stressful. And some lecturers are trash
My advice to future students is: Make a range of friends within the same course, so you can study with them and keep on track
Positives: 1. nice campus
2. friendly and supportive tutors not all but most of them
Negatives: 1. highest fail rate
2. hard to find parking spot in campus (Clayton)
My advice to future students is: make sure you choose the right course asap or else you'll regret and waste heaps of time
I'm majored in Business Information Systems.
Positives: Industry based learning experience
Strong Business Analysis basis
Not too challenging, HDs are very achievable!
Negatives: Some bad lecturers
Some subjects too technical
My advice to future students is: Get into IBL
Positives: You had a lot more choices as to the units you studied. For the most part the course was engaging and relevant to the real world, and allowed for good employment options.
Negatives: Specifically the education side of the double degree, too much focus on educational theory that is lacking relevance to actual teaching, and not enough focus on the practical realities of teaching.
My advice to future students is: Definitely choose a bachelor of science degree, but other universities offer better structured teaching courses.
Positives: The course covers a range of units from microbiology to biophysics, therefore students gain a wide range of knowledge.
Negatives: Lacks proper pathways to employment. Students cannot really enter employment without doing further study.
My advice to future students is: Do a course which offers a range of subjects, but also maximises your chances of gaining employment straight away.
Positives: The course equips you with beneficial skills and knowledge regardless of whether a student ends up pursuing a career in either/or disciplines
Negatives: It can be quite stressful and content heavy at times
My advice to future students is: Form strong support and study groups with fellow students
Positives: Practical units, hands on interactions with organisations and exchange opportunities (compulsory)
Negatives: Can be broad
My advice to future students is: To choose a course you’re passionate about
