Positives: more practical rather than theoretical, fun, good
Negatives: some of the teachers are not good enough (hv problem in speaking english i guess)
My advice to future students is: practice makes perfect, make sure to practice everything weekly, so you can catch up with the weekly topics
Positives: Lecturers are fully engaged, passionate about what they teach us and provide a lot of interesting reflective materials. Subjects are very diversified, we learn to see economical issues from different perspectives.
Negatives: It involves a lot of maths, so that could be an obstacle to someone who doesn't really like it.
My advice to future students is: To choose the same course if only they are interested in economics in general.
Positives: The first year is 8 common core business subjects so it gives students who may be unsure of what aspect of business they want to major in a sample of each discipline
Negatives: It’s quite intensive and involves a lot of self directed work
My advice to future students is: Make sure that you are familiar with course guidelines before you take up that course
Positives: That I met New people and had a feeling of how University was.
Negatives: There was little help from the teacher to the students also that it was nothing like school or TAFE. I didn’t enjoy studying there.
My advice to future students is: To do research about the subject and get reviews on it before starting it.
Positives: This course Masters of Professional Accounting with CPA Extension is a very unique course and rare one to find in Melbourne. Not much of the other Uni’s have this. After completing this course you will be done with the CPA program exams and just have to get the experience left in any accounting firm. Also we will get help from our lectures for the CPA subjects.
Negatives: As of now there is nothing negative, but yes few things that I faced in Sem 1 are the teachers. Few of the teachers are new and have less experience and was not up to the level I expected
My advice to future students is: The only advice is, that it is ranked one of the toughest courses. I have seen my friends struggling. So study hard and its more or less self study. Be prepared
Positives: The flexibility and imagination that it gives students is very good and positive. It is not boring and very interesting
Negatives: Can't choose subjects
My advice to future students is: They should do this course because it is very good and insightful
Positives: The course has a number of positive aspects. The first thing is that there are a number of lectures with real world experience teaching the course. Furthermore we were lucky enough to have an actual hedge fund manager lecture for one entire unit. The location of the campus is amazing, close to public transport and amazing food places for those long days of studying.
Negatives: I think the main negative of the course is the assessment structures. I think there is to much emphasis on the end of year exam and not enough testing through the course which is great for learning. Overall I found the lectures amazing, however some of the tutorial were run by less experienced and knowledgeable people which can be frustrating if you have industry knowledge.
My advice to future students is: I think the most important thing to consider is if this is a suitable course for you then make sure that you apply yourself 110%. If you are doing this course because you don't know what you want to do post uni then you may struggle to find satisfaction from studying Master of Finance. The other thing you should do is use the uni resources which includes contacting lecturers out of hours to get more out of studying.
Positives: Content is very interesting. Staff present the information in an engaging manner and easy to understand. Marketing is a interesting and fun course
Negatives: Core business is super boring and all theory which doesn't engage me
My advice to future students is: stay ontop of the homwork and pre read case studies
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.
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
