Positives: Small class sizes mean more one on one time with tutors and knowing lecturers very well
Negatives: The uni is a bit caught up in beurocracy and the head of music at the time was very focussed on the one thing he liked (gospel music) and neglected other aspects. In an interview, the best he could say about the classical music stream was ""there are ensembles for them""!!
My advice to future students is: Being in a small town and a small faculty there is a lot you can get out of the experience but you have to be motivated and take those opportunities. You can get the piece of paper without being very proactive but it's a waste of time if you do.
Positives: Well it's a full time course but I only have to go in two days a week. They have made it so people can work while doing the degree
Negatives: The course work isn't actually fine arts it's conceptual arts. Our teachers have no idea what they're doing. We don't get free parking at the art campus even though the main campus does. There's only one man in our year. Deadlines and requirements are super vague. Mylo is really poorly organised. It costs a lot and then we have to pay for our own materials every year in top of that.
My advice to future students is: If you like art don't student a bachelor of fine arts
It was a very close knit dramatic community. Fantastic for making friends however difficult career prospects from the course. Great if you plan on pursuing acting at another institution like NIDA or to go on and do a master of teaching.
My advice to future students - This will be the most fun you've ever had. You will be stretched to lengths you didn't know you could achieve and you will have a family for life.
