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.

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: 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
