Positives: Full funding provided by the university for living expenses as we as tuition fee
Given opportunity to tutor bachelors and masters students
Very good lab facilities and highly knowledged faculties
Negatives: Negative aspects are
Funding issues if the PhD research goes beyond 3.5 years. Difficult to find a suitable job after PhD.
My advice to future students is: I would advice the future students to be very cautious while choosing the supervisor for PhD. Utilise the opportunity of tutoring while PhD since it's very useful later if you want to take teaching as your career.
Positives: Covers broad aspects and knowledge
Negatives: Not really useful for real work-life
My advice to future students is: If your job doesn't require a university degree, don't do it.
Positives: Interesting material if you are into tourism, lots of courses available, friendly lecturers that are willing to help, multiple opportunities for hands on experiences
Negatives: Lots of theory work, each course has content that feels like it’s too much cramped in, lot of assessment is group work
My advice to future students is: Make sure to keep up every week and try to motivate yourself to do work. It can get tough but just keep your head up and push through. Find a good group of friends and you’ll have heaps of fun
Positives: Its a useful and competitive course that promotes interaction between each student and community
Negatives: It is a bit too competitive
My advice to future students is: Be friendly and hard working
Positives: close cohort so get lots of support
Negatives: its 4 years
My advice to future students is: go to lectures
Positives: It challenges you and forces you to work hard for your grade
Negatives: It’s very full on and difficult to keep on top of all the work
My advice to future students is: Apply yourself and stay on top of all your study. Constantly revise your notes
I'm studying the Human Services Bachelor (no longer offered).
Positives: Small faculty so you get to know your course coordinators very well, lots of placement hours for real hands on experience, extremely experienced lecturers who bring their own lived experiences to the classroom as a teaching tool
Negatives: It’s no longer offered as degree at UQ, can’t register as a social worker
My advice to future students is: Take your studies seriously from the start, as every assessment counts towards your final gpa. Enjoy the experience as it’s over before you know it, and HOLD IN THERE, it gets better and it becomes more natural the longer you stick at it
Positives: Hands on experience
Negatives: Extremely content heavy and measures memory rather than intelligence
My advice to future students is: All courses are hard and have many negative aspects and are generally unenjoyable so it is best to base your choice of course on the end result and not the course itself
Positives: The teaching quality is very high and there are lots of opportunities for industry events.
Negatives: There isn't that much support for students if they are struggling academically.
My advice to future students is: Make sure it's what you really want to study and work in eventually.
Positives: Lots of hands on experience in the work field as well as creating content. Interesting perspectives on all areas. Meeting new people with similar interests.
One of the best parts is reading current news sources and having the knowledge to decipher what is true and false about the article.
Negatives: As the course has been remodeled often classes have very vague study outlines. And many compulsory classes seem unnecessary
My advice to future students is: Work hard on internships and a portfolio
