Positives: There are a range of majors and sub major subjects to choose from. Uni tutors and lecturers had a diverse range of industry experience, which meant I was able to relate the theory back to the real word.
What I also liked about the course was that the subject content and subjects offered were relevant to keep up with the pace of the corporate environment.
Negatives: When I first started there was no structure to the course, which meant I was able to bypass core subjects and immediately study my major in my first year, given I completed a prerequisite subject.
Some of the core subjects for the course I studied such as finance, accounting and management had too many students in the tutorial class. This meant it was hard to build a relationship and ask the tutor questions.
Some lectures were hard to follow given the content and lecturer needed to make the subject more interesting and relevant to the real world. A few lecturers lacked passion
My advice to future students is: I would say make sure you do your research and read up about the subjects on offer and course outlines before you sign up. A positive is that you can try a course and if you don't like it you can withdraw before the census date, similar to trying before you buy.
Do not follow what subjects or courses your friends are doing and make sure you follow your passions. I enjoyed my time at UTS and there is potential for you to, as well!
Positives: its very rewarding. You get exactly what you expect. If you're interested in law, you will definitely be bombarded with a lot of legal cases and readings. You also get to meet like-minded student with the same interest and passion. Being able to share notes and knowledge is key to survival.
Negatives: It is hard and very competitive. Youre competing with the best of the best. Sometimes its very hard to keep up with the amount of work required. Other negative aspects includes the length of the course. A double degree, especially law, will drag your uni degree out by 2 years at the very least. Of course this is dependent on whether you fail anything.
My advice to future students is: Make sure you do something you want to do. Think ahead about job potentials, market demand etc. Make friends with older students so they can pass you some notes and prac exam papers.
Positives: The best part of my course is that it includes 2 industry recognised internships, as well as being in part of a like minded and welcoming cohort
Negatives: As it is a small course it is highly competitive, and very focused on achieveing high marks
My advice to future students is: definitely apply for the BAcc program, and stay focused and excited to learn!
Positives: - networking opportunities
- work experience
- learning a broad knowledge of business skills
- flexibility in changing majors
Negatives: No negatives
My advice to future students is: Work hard and always do the best that you can. Focus on the studies you have chosen, however enjoy the young years that you have. A healthy balanced lifestyle is key to getting through the tough times of study as well as the obstacles life itself has to offer
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: 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: 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: Meeting people with similar interests and aspirations as myself as well as discovering opportunities in the field regarding employment
Negatives: Some units I didn’t find enjoyable
My advice to future students is: Don’t be afraid of university and opportunities that will arise from it, don’t be confined to your comfort zone
Positive aspects were a few subjects were great. We got to do an internship, and run our own real event which was great.
However the negatives far outweighed the positives for me. So many of the subjects were completely useless and irrelevant to events. I graduated without knowing really how to run an event or do anything really. I wish the course had taught us how to use software that is used in the industry. Honestly the course felt like a bit of a waste of time.
My advice to future students is: Consider whether you need a uni degree or if tafe would be better because in my opinion tafe would have been the best option for me instead of uni
