I did this course online.
The positives are that you could do it in your own time.
Negatives: It didn't have a prac where we worked in a practice (placement)
I'd recommend future students to get work experience whilst studying
I'm doing this course online.
Positives: Freedom to study independently in my own time frames.
Negatives: Information overload in some weeks. Too much information worked on in one week for it to sink in properly.
My advice to future students is: Manage your time! Write out a schedule, use a diary or calendar on your phone. You can never be too organised.
Positives: Ability to study via correspondence, at time that suits. Lectures & resources all available online. Lectures are quick to respond to questions
Negatives: Unable to review exam in person when studying external to uni location. Online forums seem clogged with same grade school questions from other students. Costs of books which become obsolete each semester suck also
My advice to future students is: Find the summer units you can short cut course with & just make sure you find something you enjoy from in each unit to keep you motivated
Positives: Flexible study options and good, real world assignments
Negatives: Text books are expensive and there are new volumes every year so you can buy/sell them second hand
My advice to future students is: Set a study schedule and stick to it
Positives: Relatively flexible study options and good, real world assignments
Negatives: Fees and charges
My advice to future students is: Work at your assignments
I did this course online.
Positives: Easy to learn
Negatives: Online so collaboration with other students can be difficult sometimes
My advice to future students is: Try you never know
Positives: The course was able to be completed via distance which helped with my work/life balance. In addition, I was able to complete the degree in quadrimesters and completed a full time load by undertaking 2 subjects per quadrimester (for 8 total across the year). This decreased my daily study load without sacrificing my degree length.
Negatives: Interaction with some of the university lecturers could be problematic and responses to online and forum questions could take all week to resolve. As the course was also undertaken through distance education I felt as though I missed out on the practical aspects of “traditional” university education.
My advice to future students is: The third year course requirements increased over those of the second year by a factor of 5. There is also an expectation that the course entrants have a higher level of knowledge in accounting at the commencement than I expected. As the course is also based on comprehensive legislation (Income Tax Assessment Act, Regulations, etc) a thorough understanding of English is necessary for success in the course.
Positives: Lecturers were good, facilities solid
Negatives: Some tutors and access to books in library
My advice to future students is: Stick at it!
