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: The positive aspects of studying pharmacy are that you are taught a tremendous amount of information and in the end are quite knowledgable on conditions and medications. Therefore are able to answer many health related questions people may have and recommend remedies for patients.

Negatives: The course in itself is very difficult. There is a lot to remember and learn. The content load is quite heavy and the assignments are mostly hurdle, meaning that even though you may have passed the unit already i.e have 50% of the whole unit, when going into the final exam you need to pass that exam in order to pass the whole unit.

My advice to future students is: Weigh up your options and only study pharmacy if you genuinely want to become a pharmacist. The field is highly saturated and it is very difficult to find a job. Ensure you dedicate time and effort in the course.
