Being that this is a post graduate course the class sizes are small. There are lots of flexible options with developing a project. You see, There is a year long project you complete as a major part of the curriculum. The amazing thing is, you can select from a long list of project briefs supplied by the lecturer OR you can create your own OR, and the best one I think, is that you can go out into the field, use contacts you've established during the undergraduate degree or even create new connections to work on a project with an existing company, in the real world, instead of doing a ""fictional"" project, supplied by the Uni. The uni are also great in setting up real world contacts and work experience too! SO small class sizes, flexibility with creating your own curriculum (basically) and an amazing and engaging, learning filled course!

Negatives: Little to none here, one post graduate requirement is the exploration into a thesis subject. While it isn't required to complete an entire thesis, thesis proposals and some chapters are required. There is lots of training and learning material to help out, but some designers aren't prone to loving writing thesis and essays. However, It's a vital role of the course and while I found the task itself to be somewhat mundane, the learning outcomes I achieved surpassed this.

My advice to future students is: Stick with it to move past the boring, and enjoy the great and amazing options students in this course have access to. Use the resources, the library and the lectures knowledge to benefit your year long project. Also, don't take the easy rout! If it sounds hard, it's worth doing. Look to establish the industry connections, and another thing, marketing and small business courses, while boring, are a great choice for free subject courses or extra credit.

The course as a whole was fantastic, UniSA have a very engaging environment in the creative fields and staff that have qualifications in the fields too. First year study was mainly introductory and included a lot of theory based subject matter. However dull theory based subject matter may sound in a practical based course and industry, the scope of learning was invaluable. Almost all courses were hosted by a qualified and knowledgeable lecturer and more often than not they were accompanied by tutors too. Following the first year, and each year after that, course work becomes a lot more industry focused with a lot of on site and real world projects. Positive aspects would include the ability to seek help, assistance and advice from multiple staff, including lecturers, tutors and campus support staff. Additionally, access to amazing online and physical learning resources. The workshop located on campus is amazing, heaps of flexability for working times, out of hours even!

Negative aspects included some over crowding issues in some courses. Older buildings (that I believe are getting upgraded during 2017-2018) had smaller rooms and even less resources such as computer access. and the only other negative aspect I would say would be that while there was a substantial amount of resources for students, there could be even more to enhance the Uni SA learning experience for this course.

My advice to future students is: Go for it! Uni is a wonderful experience and this course in particular is jam packed with interesting subject matter, flexibility in your projects (past first year) and an engaging networking environment.

I thought the course was delivered well and the lecturers and tutes were engaging - although it was a bit more theoretical than I was hoping.

My advice to future students is: Get support if you need it. Gain as many contacts as you can through placements, volunteering etc - this is a good way to stand out when you're looking for a job.

Positives are some students are lucky enough to get a tppp (grad) year at the end of the course

Negative is not all students do.
Another negative is there should be more hands on placement learning and less theory assignment writing.

My advice to future students is: Persist and you will achieve

Positive aspect - Location on campus was convenient, they had real nurses training us in the practical labs.

Negative - They did not have us doing any practical placements until halfway into second year! So it was hard to know if you REALLY wanted to study nursing when you did not get any hands on experience straight away, many students dropped out after the first placement!

My advice to future students is: Nursing is a career of passion, only go into it if you are in it for the love of it.

A hard yet rewarding course great if you like working with others. There is a lot of work to do outside of uni though, so be prepared.

My advice to future students is: Stay on top of work

It's a really easy course, at time there seems to be no point in doing it. Good bridging course though.

My advice to future students is: Make sure you get a good gpa

The positive is there is a lot of freedom to pick the course you would like to specialise in, and the negative is that it may lead to people not being able to make up their decision

My advice to future students is: know what you want to get into before specialising in a field
