Positives: It is fairly small so easy to make friends and build a support network. Great facilities in the building including desktops, printing, laser cutters and 3D printers. Opportunities to do real life projects for electives and go on exchange.

Negatives: Quite conceptual and a lot of art based subjects. Hard and incredibly time consuming. Can be expensive to buy model making materials and computer programs.

My advice to future students is: Worth a try if you think architecture might be something you’re interested in but don’t stick with it if not passionate or enjoying it. It’s incredibly hard work though and you will most likely need to prepared for long hours and all nighters.

Positives: The best part of the course is the clinical placements, with the option of going rural as well. Teachers and tutors are very helpful and are quick to respond to your emails. There is often a discussion board available for students to openly ask questions as well. There is overall a lot of support and the content is well structured.

Negatives: At times, there are a handful of tutors that are not sure of the answers to your questions immediately. They will taken within a week to respond to your questions. This is fine but can be annoying if you need the answer quickly.

My advice to future students is: Consider this course from a variety of universities before commencing. Make sure you are happy with the travel if you choose cumberland campus as it is not near the train station. Overall, the learning experience is great and you will graduate with excellent skills for employment.

Positives: The course is essentially 2 degrees combined together and is completed within 4 years instead of 5 if done separately. The bachelor of science lets you major in a wide variety of majors so you can tailor your study to what interests you, and the nursing degree is structured just like a bachelor's but slightly more intense and condensed! At the end you have a science degree and a nursing degree which qualifies you as a Registered Nurse within Australia! I have enjoyed being able to study both at the same time and feel that there is definitely a lot to gain from this degree. Also, you have the option to be employed in many different fields afterwards in science and health, so the options are endless!

Negatives: It is a very intense course, so you have to be quite dedicated and work hard in order to succeed and achieve good grades. It is not difficult, but requires time and effort and skills of time management in order to maintain a good balance between life and study! The amount of assessments can be overwhelming at times, but it is definitely manageable.

My advice to future students is: Definitely pursue this degree if you are unsure of what you are interested in or want the best of both worlds in regards to science and nursing. You will only know what you want to do by trying it out. Make sure you prioritise study and keep up to date, especially as for the nursing aspect there is a lot of clinical placement and assessments involved, which takes up time and effort, but it's definitely worth it! Study hard, and don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. The university is great at offering support to students and the staff are friendly.

Positives: The positive aspects of the course are first, the professors. The professors of this course are experts on their field. They are also professional and approachable. Second is the course content. The course content is relevant and timely. It involves both theories and practice.

Negatives: Honestly, there's no negative aspects of the course. The course is well designed and structured.

My advice to future students is: I would advise them to enrol this program at University of Sydney and not in other Universities. The Peace and Conflict program is known world wide for its quality research. The professors are award-winning as well and are widely recognised in their field, particularly peace and studies. University of Sydney itself is 3rd among the best Universities in Australia, and number 1 in Global Employability Ranking.
