Positives: Developing black spots in. My knowledge prior to undertaking the course

Negatives: Length of the course

My advice to future students is: Engage early with peers and businesses to see where they interact with what you learn vs what is used in the working industry

Positives: The course material is very relatable to the real world and job prospects. I feel very prepared for a career in law, and the material is like nothing I've studied before

Negatives: At times the material can be very dry and seemingly irrelevant, but in the end it all works out

My advice to future students is: Make as many friends as possible and make the most out of your time at university. It's a great experience and you'll have the best time if you get involved in as much as possible

Positives: The information is very relevant to the industry that I am hoping to be in when I finish my degree. It is also very relevant to today's society, and has given me a new perspective on the world we live in

Negatives: The group assignments are very hard to get individual grades from as, if not everyone pulls their equal weight, everyone else's grades suffer

My advice to future students is: Study hard, and time manage. Do all the readings and attend as many lectures as you can. Make friends!

Positives: The course material is extremely interesting. It isn't content that you get taught throughout high school, or in many other degrees. Also, it has many real world applications; it gives an insightful and in depth analysis of society which is a opens a great new perspective upon society.

Negatives: The content is quite subjective, so essay writing can be hard.

My advice to future students is: If you are interested in learning more about society, the world we live in, and how everything operates, this course is perfect. It is the most amazing material I have ever been involved in, and it has motivated me even further to study harder, and get excited for my future career

Positives: The course itself has answered all my requirements and developed my knowledge to fit the ground running with some contacts in the mining industry I hope to get an opportunity in coming weeks.

Negatives: The length of the course, could of paused I felt having some on the job experience and training before tackling the next semester

My advice to future students is: Continue to battle on/push through, there are times that it got difficult for me, I reached out to peers and networked through personal engineers already in the paying working field to continue through the course and came out on the other side stronger as one.

Positives: It was the right level of challenging, was very interesting and allowed for a choice in aspects of the field you're interested in

Negatives: Without the Honours year, the bachelor degree itself doesn't leave you ready to work in a science environment like research. The practical element is not at all similar to how research is (I did Honours and now work in research)

My advice to future students is: Make sure it's what you want to do because to make a career out of it requires a lot of time and dedication

I studied biomedical science (Honours).

Positives: I think the course was very thorough, and made me really well versed in a lot of aspects of biomedical science (my major). A lot of it was very interesting, and theory-wise, it prepared me very well for medicine, which I always intended to go on to. Having the honours year was highly beneficial because it taught me what being a scientist actually was, and I got to learn a huge amount about research, and I even went to a conference at the end of it (not everyone would get to, but quite likely if you actively try!).

Negatives: I think a lot of people go into science (especially biomedical science) because they have an interest in human biology but aren't sure what to do, and I wouldn't recommend it to those people. The OP requirement isn't high but that's because being such a general course, their intake is huge. The content is quite hard and a lot of work has to be put in. The contact hours are long as well. So unless you want to go into a science career as a researcher, or you intend to do medicine after, I wouldn't hugely recommend it. Even if you do intend to do medicine after, it's super valuable but if you don't get in, you're left with little options for work after, especially if you don't do honours.

My advice to future students is: I sort of said it already in the other section, but don't go into it unless you want to be a scientist, or as a pre-med course. It's a lot of work. It's very interesting though, and you'll come out with a lot of knowledge.

Very supportive lecturer and ast. Lecturer in supporting their students to really understand and be interested in the subject that they are teaching in.

Project management is not for everyone. We are required to manage projects using various tools, understanding the methodologies, and the processes in project management. The positive thing is that it trains you to pay attention to details, and manage time. The course helps me in logical thinking as well, as managing projects require clear logic. The negative thing about it is the assignment scale can be quite large and requires time and effort.

My advice to future students is: My advice is, if you’re into project management, this is a good course. Study hard and don’t skip lectures.
