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 course prepares students to analyse data using traditional data methods including Data Warehousing, Mining and Advanced Analytics. The course is intensive and prepares the students to face complex situational problems. There is help available from PhD students as well as mentors provided during the start of semester 1

Negatives: Too many assignments make it hard for student to focus on the various aspect of advanced analytics. Students are expected to learn everything themselves because even though this is a master's course, the lecturers think it's the best way learning. I.e by solving technical problems themselves.

My advice to future students is: Practice the coding languages taught on a day to day basis. The course provides the students to learn from a wide array of technical expertise, so make sure to pick one technology and stick to it. Understanding the fundamentals is key to success.
