I major in Civil Engineering.

Positives: It's quite easy to find areas bursting with students that want to socialize, and simultaneously there are a lot of nice quiet areas one can sit to enjoy some alone time and possibly study.

Negatives: Most of the tutors seem like they hate their job. They never want to help students out whether it be for assignments or general questions for exams.

My advice to future students is: Get into a study group, you'll benefit from it quite a lot in the coming years. Whether it be to go out and have a few drinks or to have a steady stream of mates you can choose for group assignments.

Positives: Learn some professional development tips such as how to give good presentation

Negatives: For me, Not much practical knowledge. Did not learn much.

My advice to future students is: Bachelor was expensive for me. I finish my bachelor in 2013 and couldn't get a job in the related field. I did not get what i paid for. For future students, better to study practical courses such as cookery, builder. Alsos medical field is good, I will recommend students to study nursing, if they are interested.

The exams were not very hard, because the lecturer would normally test what they have covered, and normally they give you sample test, which is similar to final exam.

I was international student, in my first year, I found I could hardly understand what the lecturers were saying, but managed to get 80% marks, since I just practiced the sample tests. However, I did not even understand the logic behind the test. It was after 2 years when I studied in my master degree that I got to understand my Bachelor course😛. So an easy exam could be positive in the short term, but negative in the long term.

In Victoria Uni, most of the time I studied by myself because of language barriers as an international student, but after first semester I tried to learn more from lectures, and I guess it did improve my result and make my study much easier compared to studying by myself, so listening to lectures actively definitely saves your time in study.

My advice to future students is: Do the sample test carefully, and think about what are the variations of sample test. Think about what questions would you put into the exam if you were the examiner. After this, be confident and careful with your numbers in exam.

The level and type of lecturers vary a lot, from highly responsible (mostly female lexturers) to less responsible mostly male lecturers. But it is up to you which lecturers you enroll and how you study.

Pros : uni provides all the materials and facilities for students to study so that students can get the main parts done faster/better. From access to books, academic journals, comfortable study area and even microwaves.

We have 4 units per trimester, which I think is an easier way to study - not too many subjects in a block.

Other facilities that the Uni offer are that there are people who we can talk to to consult the course task

Negatives: the lecture language/accents are not always clear; too much of a focus on the assessments, however the lecturer can help for consultation by email or face to face

My advice to future students is: Study hard, especially for an international student, even understand english well as it's rather difficult to get along with uni life otherwise.

Positive: Learnt how to work with others in groups.

Negative: Didn't really prepare me for the workforce and for the range of jobs available in the industry.

My advice to future students is: Get a job working parttime in the industry you're interested in as soon as you possibly can.

We got to have a lot of practice on our clinical skills within our campus in which made me very confident to work in a hospital setting. I had a lot of support from my tutors and lecturers when I am having difficulties and that helped me pass all my exams and assessments. Learning certain units such a sociology and population health has also influenced and changed my perspective on things in a positive way.

The theory and practical workload can be very difficult to manage and to balance out with our work and social life. The intense weeks of assessments and tests can also be very overwhelming and stressful especially when it is hurdle and needs to be over a certain mark in order to pass. Time management is so important so it was very easy to fall behind.

My advice to future students is: To always be on time and organised. Try to form a study group because you’ll definitely need the help and support to get through the course. Ask a lot of questions and be engaging.

It's a pretty good course but the teachers aren't really experienced in time management and all the Tasks are always rushed to the very end not giving us enough time to do anything.

My advice to future students is: Make sure to start assements early

I thought it would be an easy way to get a teaching job, wasn’t very interesting and I didn’t enjoy it too much. Lots of practical work which was good though.

My advice to future students is: Do your research before picking a course
