Positives: There are several positive aspects to my course. Firstly, the vast majority of the tutors/lecturers are extremely knowledgable and provide excellent guidance throughout the course. The information provided is also incredibly up-to-date and has proven very useful when in the classroom. Assessments are, for the most part, fair and relevant to real-life teaching situations.

Negatives: One negative aspect is that the degree is a year longer than at every other university (5 years instead of 4). In saying that though, you are able to complete an integrated honours/TESOL in the 5th year, which may be attractive to some. In addition to this, the faculty is not very considerate toward student circumstances. There is a 90% attendance rate that must be adhered to irrespective of illness/misadventure etc. under threat of failure. Simple extensions have also been abolished.

My advice to future students is: I would advise them to think very carefully about whether the 5th year would be beneficial to them. I would also advise them to not just attend Sydney Uni because it's Sydney Uni.
