Positives: the positive aspects of my course include learning how to communicate better, which will not only help with being an OT but also in everyday life. And also challenging myself, especially in the anatomy courses :)

Negatives: The negative aspects include that sometimes the OT lectures can be a bit boring and repetitive, and also the workload is extremely intense

My advice to future students is: Don’t procrastinate, ask your tutors for help and just keep trying with anatomy

Positives: The partnership with the mater hospital is great and I am lucky enough to be placed there. I really enjoy the integrated skills sessions and I know that next semester we do integrated placement which will be good as well. Our tutes are very self learning based and interactive which means it’s fun and you’re not just listening to the tutor talk the whole lesson.

Negatives: I have done previous study of a BN at a different uni and I only got credit for 2 subjects out of 7. A lot of the equipment in our skills labs don’t work.

My advice to future students is: If you want something bad enough, even if you don’t get there straight away, if you work hard enough, you’ll get there eventually

Positives: A course where I feel I'm actually being prepared to be medical professional with a certain job to do - not just studying abstract science etc. Everyone in the course has worked hard to be there and as such are really passionate about physio. Not only are they great group members, but make good friends too

Negatives: It's not hard to get into just because it's popular! You WILL be doing hard subjects that require hard work and study if you don't have a knack for science or learning heavy content

My advice to future students is: If you study regularly and keep on top of your assessment, you will really enjoy this course! And of course, you have to be passionate about what you'll eventually be doing

Positives: The focus on theory during courses rather than just saying things, we learn HOW and WHY things work the way they do, rather than just blindly learning it. The course provides interesting connections to the real world.

Negatives: N/A

My advice to future students is: First year, so IDK

Positives: Highly respected degree being an honours degree at a good university, and a small cohort means you don’t get quite as lost in the crowd

Negatives: I believe it is more difficult than the OP required to enter the course, and a lot harder than everyone expected. Also uni 5 days a week is so draining and hard to find time to have a social life and/or work

My advice to future students is: Make sure you know what you’re getting into, 4 years of quite intense very early mornings. Also some of the content isn’t directly related, and you become very overqualified for your job.

Positives: Learning a lot of new things, getting taught by some of the best people in the field, being able to help people

Negatives: It's alot of hard work, feels like am putting in alot of hours of study compared to my friends doing other degrees

My advice to future students is: To make sure that its something you are able to dedicate yourself to, and that's its definitely not a course you can slack off in

Positives: personally I can’t think of any positive aspects from when I studied this course even though I had dreams of becoming a vet and absolutely love animals. I guess that you were surrounded by people who also loved animals just as much as you

Negatives: It was too generalised, too much content covered that was in a lot of depth so it felt like you just had to go home and teach yourself, everyone studying the vet science degree made fun of you because they think they’re better than everyone, and mainly because a Vet Tech isn’t a specific titled job and no one really knows how to get a job with a Vet Tech degree

My advice to future students is: Only do Vet Tech to get into vet science and you have to have a really good stomach to seeing and talking about blood and guts and all that stuff because you won’t get far if you have to throw up all the time
