Positives: Flexible time table
Negatives: Course load requires extensive put of uni hors
My advice to future students is: Study hard from year 1
Positives: Getting a global perspective and cross-cultural experience
Negatives: Less focusing on practical thinking
My advice to future students is: Try to be independent thinker based on the experience gotten from the program
Positives: The lecturer was great! The course structure was really good (exams and case work was nicely spread out). The grading was very fair and hard work was rewarded by the lecturer
Negatives: Time management was a bit challenging especially when groups members don't participate
My advice to future students is: Take the class with people you know so you can have trustworthy group members that will pitch in. Manage your time so that you have enough time to study for the final since it takes place during the final week of uni

My advice to future students is: Do as many industrial placements/gain as much experience as possible
Positives: Deeper understanding of microeconomics
Negatives: Lack of detailed explanation and personalised study methods, it felt a bit dry
My advice to future students is: Study
Positives: It is a very well taught course that delves into many details
Negatives: the social life on campus
My advice to future students is: to research things themselves!
Positive - MPH/MHM has an excellent reputation, I would argue the best in Australia. The lecturers are world class and the course content is very comprehensive and of very high quality, challenging (in a good way) and engaging. The technology that UNSW has implemented makes it very easy to study externally and flexibly e.g. Moodle, library access, Blackboard collaborate for webinars and recorded lectures.
Negatives - None to note. There is a lot of coursework although this is to be expected from a good postgraduate program. While there is a wide variety of courses that can be studied as part of this dual masters, it is heavily screwed to medicine, as opposed to allied health.
Advice - Be prepared to allocate extensive time and energy to the course and don't expect an easy workload
Positives: Highly interesting course for anyone who has interest in corporate mergers and acquisitions. The course is heavy on the discounted cash flow methodology - so if you struggle with this it probably isn't the course for you.
Negatives: The lecturer is tough to understand and often doesn't stick to lecture material, however he does a great job of keeping the online content updated and ensuring that everyone knows what is going on with the course.
My advice to future students is: This is known as one of the hardest FINS courses at UNSW - only do if you're highly interested in finance and DCF methodology
Positives: Networking ability
Guest speakers from industry
My advice to future students is: Focus on studies
Join social clubs
The things I enjoyed the most about this course was the flexibility to pick a stream and subjects that I enjoyed. There are core subjects such as Foundations, Social Determinants of Health etc. Depending on your interests, some are more interesting that others. The electives can be hit and miss depending on the teachers e.g. I hated and dropped out of Program Design & Evaluation, but loved some of the Infectious Diseases and Outbreak Investigation subjects. There is also flexibility in how you study - I did a mixture of face-to-face and online learning. This course makes it easy to study while working full-time.
My advice to future students is: Have a plan about what subjects you want to do from the beginning of the course.
