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.

Positives: Compared to other Uni's I find the delivery of the content to be not only extremely hands-on, but also to be extremely up-to-date and aligned with current industry directions. I travel 120km round trip every day solely because of how good this Uni is.

Negatives: I truly have none whatsoever, mainly due to being able to compare this with other tertiary options.

My advice to future students is: If even remotely considering this university, to not be offput by any factors such as travel and work. It is truly worth it at the end, and the Uni has a vast majority of services to help accomodate you!

I find the course has great teaching and really good resources for students.

Also, the grading is pretty fair.

Negative aspects are high male dominance in the industry and the course can be complex at times

My advice to future students is: Treat this course like a 9-5 job

Best parts are the extra curricular activities available at Qut. The subject matter is super hands on and you learn skills to make you employable before you even begin your final year. Negatives are some of the lecturers who don't teach too well, e.g. you'd be better off watching MiT's lectures on YouTube for some subjects.

My advice to future students is: Get involved in extra curricular activities like clubs, societies and volunteer opportunities. Go on the camps offered and check out Qut global for overseas opportunities

Positives: The IT course at QUT provides complete package to students, from programming to business sides. We are trained to align and be a medium between technology and business. The projects are very realistic and relatable to the real world tasks. In the final year, there will be a final project called capstone, where all the knowledge and techniques learned throughout all semesters will be used in implementing a real project with real client.

Negatives: One of the things that I dislike about the course is the quality of the lectures. I sometimes feel the lecture sessions are quite useless, especially since some lecturers only read through the slides. Another negative aspect is the lack of support in terms of technological resources and knowledge in the capstone (final year project). I feel that it is really important to provide supports for the final year students on the capstone.

My advice to future students is: I would advise future students to take this course seriously, since it is one of the most demanding courses. It can get stressful and busy, especially with the assignments, but it is also fun. Another bit of advice is to not procrastinate on the assignments to get good marks (VERY IMPORTANT)
