Positives: The positive aspects of this course are that it is very relevant to the industry and the classes are all set out so that you learn everything in stages as opposed to jumping ahead to something you’re not quite ready to learn. When you are sitting in class, you honestly feel like you are learning exactly what you need to, and that you’re ready to jump into the Construction field.

Negatives: The negative aspect of my course (and it’s a big negative) is the ‘first year module’ that Vic Uni has implemented, and unfortunately this structure is going to be implemented across the whole four years. Instead of doing 4 units at a time era semester, you study one unit at a time in a short burst of 4 weeks. This means that every assessment is a group based assessment, and this makes way for the lazy people to sit back and let the hard workers (such as myself) do all the work!

My advice to future students is: I would say to thoroughly look into all of the different options at all of the colleges. Also, you girls should not be shy to enter a predominantly male field!

I am halfway through my course and i couldn't be more happy with the career pathway i have choose as i find it to be so rewarding. if you love helping people, i defiantly believe this is the right pathway for you .

Pros- rewarding, happiness you feel when you have helped someone and gain a therapeutic relationship with the client/patient whilst on placement. the friends you make throughout the duration of your course, the skills you learn in labs which is presented as a real life setting (hospital beds, canulas,) and there are manikins you're able to practice on.

Cons - it is a very unorganised uni, unable to rely on your teachers as they never reply to emails and never seem to be interested in wanting to help, with placement you can go a semester without it and be required to do two 4 week blocks over summer break and you find out 2 weeks in advance.. also having 10 hours worth of lectures in 1 day and so much content to cover in an 8 week block!

In saying that - my placement is what is keeping me motivated as well as my peers that are completing the course with me

Positives: Good insight to the business world.

Lots of subjects were covered which opened up a lot of different job possibilities and helped me find things i was interested in.

Helped build different sets of skills such as time management, communication and team work.

Negatives: Found a lot of subjects i wasn't interested in which overall felt like a waste of time.

Too many subjects were covered with no specific focus, makes it hard to decide what to do.

My advice to future students is: If you don't like your course find something you like doing. Enjoy and stay in school

My experience at Victoria University was horrid. I gave the course my all and the educators bullied me.
The educators and Head of Hair and beauty were very nasty people who acted higher than you and Myself alongside many of my classmates were bullied and harassed by teachers and walked out of that school with mental illnesses. I was constantly pulled aside to be talked to about my work and was constantly told I am unemployable and the other girls also had similar experiences and many dropped out. The actual units in the course were absolutely fantastic, but it was very hard to finish my course here and very hard to have a passion for my work. I would study elsewhere.
