Positives: The location is great, and meeting all the like minded students is good. I think the foundation courses give you a good overall understanding, and help to give you direction (in terms of where to major etc). The university also have a range of external study help.
Negatives: I think the courses get repetitive after a while. In 2nd and 3rd year, it begins to feel like the courses are just repeating themselves. There is also a bunch of group work, which can be challenging if you get a not-so-good group.
My advice to future students is: Definitely give it a go - but don't be afraid to move around. If you aren't enjoying your degree or major, don't keep going, there are always options to move on to other degrees.
Positives: There are three majors that you can choose between with many overlapping courses, giving you options down the future.
The field of study covers a broad range of topics that you can apply on both a professional and personal level.
Negatives: As with all uni courses there was a highly varied mix of native language tutors and lecturers. This sometimes created issues of understanding.
It was hard at times to seek answers or assistance.
My advice to future students is: Come to tutes with a collaborated list of questions.
If you don't feel the answers you receive are strong enough, email a secondary educator.
The lecturers are always happy to help and want you to really achieve
I'm majoring in Sports Management.
Positives: I like the subject selected I think they are quite important, it is great that everything is available online and we can attend other classes if we miss our register one
Negatives: I don't like the minimum contact hours, I would prefer more interactive smaller classes to intergrate what is learnt in the lecture sessions
My advice to future students is: keep on top of your work so you don't fall behind, understand what assessments you have though out your course
