Positives: Useful group projects with plenty of real life examples and methods
Negatives: Too many old theories that might not be able to practice in the real life.
My advice to future students is: Be creative, don’t afraid of asking, collaborating with your classmates and tutors.
Positives: It is a great field with a lot of flexibility for critical thinking and adaptation to different interests. It is current and there are constant possibilities for engagement with contemporary issues and politics.
Negatives: The subjects are well coordinated on paper but in practice/detail, the lecturers do little real coordination of curriculum. Additionally, it needs a more coherent critical position to remain relevant to contemporary political economy issues.
My advice to future students is: Be prepared to figure a lot of things out on your own, and read widely.
Positives: Very practical and hands on from the get go, learn very specific skills that we will take with us into professional practice, well organised and structured
Negatives: Some subjects not coordinated as well as they could be, a few practical demonstrators aren't very good
My advice to future students is: It is a fun but also challenging course. It is very rewarding and optometry is a great field to work in for those who are unsure
Positives: 1. It’s cheaper than study the same course in USA and Uk
2. Close to home (Thailand)
3. No Trump! 😂
Negatives: Heavy study. Further than finish all of the core subject (4 subjects per semester), we have to collect the hours in the clinical placement. At least 160 hours per semester.
My advice to future students is: In my program, I will say that this course is take less time to finish. Comparing with other country.
Positives: although there is a lot of theory, you get to meet a lot of people who share the same passion as you do and during the course there is a lot of chances for you to do some animal handling particularly with large animals such as diary cows, beef cattle, sheep and horses.
Negatives: timetable can be a bit overwhelming and there is a lot to study for
My advice to future students is: get better with time management, remember to maintain a good study/life balance
Negatives: Legit scam don't do it lmao
My advice to future students is: Don't look at a uni for prestige. Look at what you'll GET OUT of the course.
Negatives: too short
My advice to future students is: Be prepared for assessment
Positives: There are plenty of opportunities to connect with industry professionals and learn about career pathways. Also, there is a broad range of subjects with a variety of different major options. I enjoy the campus location and there is also a lot of content and information available online too.
Negatives: As it is such a large course, it can feel very overwhelming; despite lots of opportunities being available, there is strong competition for them. Tutorials and lectures can feel depersonalised and it is hard to engage with other students.
My advice to future students is: Choose a bachelor of commerce if you are not yet ready to specialise in a given field, and know that there is a lot of independent work required to be successful. However, if you put in the effort, it will definitely pay off!
Positives: Easy. Wide options for career path
Negatives: Numbers are boring
My advice to future students is: Do a triple major
Positives: 1. The lecturers were great and were always supportive. They were knowledgeable and even if you needed some extra time to see them to ask questions, they were willing to help out
2. There is a great balance of theory and practice so that you graduate with well rounded knowledge
3. The course is flexible and allows you to pick subjects from other streams such as the arts
Negatives: 1. The bachelors of science degree can be very broad, which is great if you don’t know what career path you want to do in the science field after finishing high school. However, usually students that graduate study another degree afterwards due to limited career options from just completing this degree
My advice to future students is: Work hard in your first year of the course and don’t listen to people who say the first year doesn’t count because it does. Your grades add up and it might make the difference between an average GPA and a great one
