Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

QUT is a university based in sunny Queensland with its two campuses based in Brisbane - Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove.

Many of the courses for QUT incorporate or encourage placements or work-integrated learning which despite some preparation and organisation, are overall a positive feature for students based on their reviews.

We have a range of reviews across different topics, including Business, Engineering, Arts Humanities & Law, Engineering, Health and Science.

Some of the advice we receive from QUT reviews includes:
Prepare for classes and manage your time well - plan out the semester;
Get involved in extra Uni activities, clubs, sporting groups, societies, networking events, etc - you can get practical skills as well as making friends;
Putting in the extra effort pays off - whether that's completing extra problems or getting involved in societies relevant to your field;
Always attend class - it's going to be much easier spending time learning in class than trying to catch up later;
Check out employment options and opportunities before you finish and try to get some experience while studying;
Use your time at Uni to ask as many questions to Lecturers as you can - they have so much knowledge to share beyond class;
If you've got a placement opportunity associated with your course, apply/organise it early;
Make friends with your cohort - study groups can prove really useful.

Very engaged teachers, very good opportunities, great for bringing structure to one's work. Mileage seemed to vary based on individual motivation of students: could have been better 1 on 1 at setting post-grad expectations?

The positive aspect is how supportive the staff is and how much knowledge they have.

The negative aspect is how much the course focused on one particular style of the art of writing - only briefly discussing non-"literary" genres
