A little bit more about UNSW

The main campus of UNSW (University of New South Wales) is in the Sydney suburb of Kensington. They have another campus for Arts and Design in Paddington, Sydney and the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) which is a postgraduate management and business school that is part of the UNSW Business School.

We have a range of UNSW reviews from students across topics such as Science, Health (including Medicine), Business & Commerce, Arts, Engineering, IT and Sciences.

Here's some advice and tips based on the UNSW students reviews we've received:
Make sure you research the degree and major you definitely want to do;
The library has a huge availability of study resources;
Speak to and ask Q's of the lecturers - they may have the ability to put you in touch with the industry;
Join Communities and student groups are a great way to network and make friends;
Study in groups can help;
Try to get a placement and gain experience while you study;
Make use of Uni resources like Moodle, library access & Blackboard;
Study hard in the first year or so when subjects are easy and high marks are easy to achieve;
Don't fall behind in your studies, it's hard to make up.

Positives: The learning content is very practical. It prompts you to get into the mind of both PR practitioner and the media through the choice of media/journalism courses. Assignments for the courses can be used as portfolios for interviews as well as to test one's skills. Lecturers are highly qualified and supportive. They provide decent feedback to assist in your career search/growth.

Negatives: Grading criteria can be harsh. Need to spend extra effort in communicating with lecturers. Also, most of the peers aren't from the industry, or might not be staying in Australia after graduation. So it is difficult to form a professional network for future career development.

My advice to future students is: Value in-person and email communications with lecturers, that will certainly help get more clarity and better grades. Moreover, the assignments aren't exactly overwhelming. You will benefit from starting early and taking it seriously, because they are what you might actually be doing in future.
