Positives: At UTS there a new lab facilities which are fantastic to learn in! The teachers are amazing as well. I love the practical side of nursing it’s so engaging.
Negatives: The classes are a smaller size so depending on the individuals that are in the class the contribution can at times be minimal which I find effects the way I learn.
Maths is a huge part of the nursing course which at times I struggle with.
My advice to future students is: Continuously review your notes and keep on top of what you learn on a week to week basis so that once exams come it’s second nature. Consult with the lecturers.
Negatives: Assignments making criteria are so confusing
My advice to future students is: Read instructions thoroughly
Positives: Good campus
Simulation of Learning is High tech
Negatives: Far location
Higher number of students
My advice to future students is: Study in advance and focus more on practicals than theories...
Positives: Good teaching staff, placements were met, good uni facilities (practice lab)
Negatives: 3rd year subjects were based in kurringai campus
My advice to future students is: Nursing in UTS is a smart choice especially if you want to go into the paediatric setting as its in partnership with the Sydney children’s hospital network
Positives: Plenty of opportunities to gain experience in a variety of different clinical settings.
Negatives: time restraints, putting all deadlines for assignments within a close time frame. Sometimes it felt like we were not given enough time to practice our clinical skills
My advice to future students is: dont leave things to last minute. attend the practice labs. read ahead of class
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
Positive - the course itself was very in depth. I was never left in the dark when I needed the extra help.
Negative - practical side was good, but was complicated when organising what hospital I was allocated to do pracs
My advice to future students is: Keep an open mind & enjoy!
