Positives: Can easily make new friends. Interesting topics and concepts introduced every week. Good lecturers.
Negatives: Too many contact hours - there are at least 20 hours a week. Lot of external assessments and things to learn.
My advice to future students is: More resources to help us learn new topics
Positives: Advanced knowledge in Accounting, and entry to be a Chartered accountant
Negatives: studying fulltime plus working fulltime plus family time management was the most challenging. course fee is so expensive
My advice to future students is: if you are working and studying at the same time you have to learn to balance your time for stress free study.
I majored in Civil and Infrastructure.
Positives: Knowledge in civil and structural design after completion. A lot good lecturer make it engaging and easy to learn. Most of the faculty staff are easy to approach during my time at RMIT University
Negatives: Time table was not flexible and some of the function on blackboard are a bit hard navigate. Some of the assignment were complex but can be done over time. Some time it hard to form group or team when lecturer was not assigned team.
My advice to future students is: Make sure to follow up with the lecturer with any questions you didn't understand during the lecture or tuturial. Make sure to come to lecture session as it very important as spectrum in the learning process don't turn up late and be more involved with the field you studying
Positives: 1. Great knowledgeable lecturers with extensive experience in the field. They reply quickly and are really supportive and understanding of student needs and challenges
2. The assignment marking is consistent with good feedback provided
3. This degree can be completed online which is great for individuals who are working or have other commitments
4. There are online discussion groups and forums which the lecturers reply on frequently if you ever need help or need to discuss something with other students
Negatives: I am yet to find any negative aspects to this course which is great!
My advice to future students is: This degree is great for individuals who want to specialise in mental health and need a course that will give them the knowledge but also one that they can balance with the rest of their busy lives!
Positives: This course is the best fashion design course in Australia and is ranked 17th in the world. The knowledge of all the lecturers is phenomenal. This is because all of the lecturers still work in industry, so all knowledge is up to date. The facilities are all state of the art, learning on industry standard machinery, which helps greatly when applying for jobs, as you are workplace ready.
Negatives: The course is very demanding. There are about 14 contact hours in a week, however another 28 hours of work is required of you to meet the standards of the course. The course is also very expensive, with all teachers expecting high quality fabric to be purchased.
My advice to future students is: Only apply if you can’t imagine yourself studying anything else, as the course is incredible but intense!
Positives: Good lecturers (some) and very helpful staff. A non-exam oriented syllabus and various technology
Negatives: Some bad lecturers, random timetabling. Intrusion from other uni
My advice to future students is: This is the place to be if you want a more practical and handsdown approach compared to some other universities
Positives: 1. This course is similar to Civil Engineering but this course does not require students to have high ability in math or physics, this aspect makes the courses much easier compare to other engineering. 2. The society’s demand of the graduate students is very high, it makes easier for graduates to find a job to gain experience.
Negatives: Some subjects involved in this course are pretty boring and seem no relations to the future career pathway.
My advice to future students is: Do some preparation before entering the course. Such as knowing the steps and processes of a construction project, able to read some drawing and get familiar with some notations. Most important part is to work hard.
Positives: Can study on my own schedule and maintain a full working life/social life while studying. Able to do lectures and tutorials anywhere at any time. Its all online, So i only need an internet connection and a laptop.
Negatives: Depends heavily on the lecturers who organise the course. Some can make the information clear and simple to study. Others can make it unnecessarily convoluted.
Also, it can be difficult to generate motivation as its done on top of working rather than complementing it.
My advice to future students is: Choose the subjects you are interested in, balance work and study effectively. Dont decieve yourself because you cant physically be involved.
Positives: The course provides a firm foundation of managerial skills when working in the corporal and industrial industries. The lecturers understood provided real life examples and the small class sizes provided ample opportunities for students to ask questions and the class to look at real life situations.
Negatives: This Masters degree was by coursework. As a result while it might have been a Masters degree it really was suitable for individuals who were already in their respective industries as trainers and assessors. In addition, as it was a degree through course work it does not provide the necessary requirements if one is seeking to undertake a doctorate degree in the future.
My advice to future students is: The best advice i could give is to ensure you understand why you are doing this course. If you are undertaking this course to increase your skills for a work position you are already involved with, great. However, this course does not provide for the ability to change careers or undertake further study.
Positives: The positive aspects within this course are: being surrounded by likeminded people who have the same mindset of ambition, also seeing how other people are inspired by design, seeing how they apply their inspiration onto an assignment. The teaching styles are on point and always provide detail within every project and assignment given.
Negatives: The negative aspect with the course is not the course itself but the travel times from my area to the city, it can be unmotivating to get up very early and travel longer than your lecture times.
My advice to future students is: The piece of advice I would offer to potential future students is to stick with the plan of course that allows them to experiment more.
