Positives: The uni campus is easy to get to and the facilities are nice. UTS offers a subject that is called Integrating Business Perspectives that is unique to the uni.
Negatives: The library is far away and the classes can be quite far away from each other and back to back.
My advice to future students is: To do Economics in high school but business studies would be optional. Also try to make friends as fast as possible.
Positives: This degree provides a wide range of options for someone who is unsure of which field to specialise in, such as myself. Another positive aspect of this course is the facilities that are provided at UTS such as the labs, namely the Super Lab that is modern and quite updated. It provides students with a touch-screen monitor each which is a very useful tool and has all the equipment that is expected in a university laboratory.
Negatives: A slight negative aspect is the odd layout of the campus with buildings scattered around the city that may be confusing to navigate around but will eventually become familiar after a certain amount of time.
My advice to future students is: To definitely take Chemistry and Physics in high school, as while they are not a prerequisite, will make time (especially first year) at University with this course much easier to handle.
Positives: Extremely knowledgeable teachers who are experts in their field, guest tutors and lecturers who have industry experience. Assessments and topics that are directly relevant to the course and help you understand how you would apply theories in practice. The uni also provides a lot of flexibility in how your course is structured and when you can study, meaning it's easy to work around your schedule in terms of work etc.
Negatives: A significant amount of study is involved and some of this is extremely difficult. Some lecturers do not make lecture recordings available online which is difficult if you cannot go to lectures due to needing to work, illness or other issues. Very often, lecturers do not communicate with each other regarding the due dates of major assessments so that core subjects will have assessments weighted around 40% - 50% due at the same time, which can lead to stress.
My advice to future students is: This is a great course to study and I would absolutely recommend it - you do have to be very organised and keep on top of everything including weekly readings, set activities, and of course assessment/exam preparation.
Positives: Well from my 4 years of experience in uni, I would say the aspects of meeting new people to form new connections and to do group activities to accomplish something. Those are what I believe are my positive aspects of my course.
Negatives: Definitely studying full time especially working part time as well can sometimes leave you with no time available to go out for social events during a semester.
My advice to future students is: Don't study all the time, enjoy and explore different experiences & opportunities outside of university
Positives: the majority of the courses subjects have tutorials that are very interactive and hands on. the tutors make sure that everyone gets involved in the tutorials, whether it being a subjects for an experiment or a recorder or the data. For example in the subject Motor learning and control the students engage in distance perception tasks of objects and body positioning in space, reflect tasks and more. we also have access to the Gym to practice coaching techniques for training and performance
Negatives: there are not many elective opportunities so the course can feel a bit one way at times
My advice to future students is: Before choosing this course or any course talk to the university and advisor to to understand the course more to get an understanding of the subject, time and career options it could lead to
Positives: I find the course really informative, the teachers are good at teaching (important) and know their stuff.
Negatives: Some of the subjects don't get into depth until the final year.
My advice to future students is: Have fun get involved and do your best
Positives: Bachelor of business is a broad cause, which allows you to have a taste of the different types of careers within the business field in the 8 first year core subjects. Then you are able to trailer the degree to which field you wish to specialise in, in your choice of major/s.
Negatives: As it is a broad degree there is no one set job you are guaranteed with afterwards ... (eg. If you study speech pathology, you become a speech pathologist... this degree is a clear route to a specific job)
My advice to future students is: Don’t rule out major choices before having a read about what they entail... eg. I was just going to major in marketing but after reading into IT, I found it interesting and it would give me more job scope so I decided to do a double major (marketing and IT)
Positives: The course is very autonomous so students are really able to tailor their degree to be more inline with their interests and their intended career path. The course seems to be highly regarded in the industry and seems to be highly sought after by employees. The course gives a good combination of traditional and digital design. There are good opportunities for industry experience and electives.
Negatives: The course can be very stressful at times, there is a lot of group work which isn't always the best. The course can get quiet expensive as well as there is a lot of material and printing costs outside of the course fees.
My advice to future students is: You need to be 100% committed if you want to do this course as it is very full on and requires a lot of time and effort. There are no exams, only project work so you must be suited to this style of studying. You will need to make a lot of sacrifices with work and social commitments in order to fit it all in.
Positives: Lovely people, specialise in what you want to do and location is central
Negatives: Lots of content and hard to keep up to date
My advice to future students is: Stay ahead of your work and to always prepare
Positives: high learning environment with superb labs. Also professors are knowledgeable and have global contacts.lot of employment opportunities
Negatives: Lot of workload with regular assignments
My advice to future students is: good uni but the must condition is to get 50 percent mark in every subject as well as in every assignment individually.
