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

I completed commerce and a systems double degree.

Positives: Students are given the autonomy and freedom to decide their course of major and there are adequate breadth subjects for students to pursue other minor interests as well.

Negatives: Tutors who are from mainland china with very poor command of English. Some of them were even tutoring law subjects which arguably require a higher level of command of English.

My advice to future students is: Enjoy yourselves

I majored in Environmental Science.

Positives: A lot of practical experience involved in this course so it isn't just completely theory

Negatives: There is a large number of international students due to the popularity of property development overseas. As a result, group assignments become difficult.

My advice to future students is: If you do complete this course, apply for jobs early as companies are always keen to hire due to a growing industry
