Coursework was entertaining, class times fit in well with my schedule and allowing me to work, University’s facilities were perfect for both learning and other activities.
My advice to future students is: Don’t let your assignments build up on each other, finish them asap.
I did a major in Supply Chain and Logistics Management.
The positives was the whole experience. I was a mature age student, so being able to go back to Uni and achieve the level of grades I received was amazing...
I did enjoy the PD units that were unique to VU.
The negative is that the theory taught is really not current with today's SCM/L theory and practices
My advice to future students is: Embrace the moment but be aware that just because you have a degree / Masters does not necessarily mean you have knowledge in your field.
The course is very practical and interesting. I found there were too many assignments.
My advice to future students is: Be sincere and study hard
Positive - Parts of it were relatively easy, plenty of different subject and areas to choose.
Negative- not enough practical work
My advice to future students is: study well.. pay attention to the details required to complete course work.
I'm doing Information Systems Management major.
The course is informative - although perhaps it'd be better doing a more 'technical' focussed course (eg CS) with some business elements might be more beneficial for trying to find a job.
It's also relatively cheap for international students.
My advice to future students is: Choose your subjects wisely
I'm doing an accounting major
It's a cheap course, the uni resources are fine, but the uni is located in a remote area.
It's good to do a course like this to get into accounting although more study is often required (depending on your role).
I'm doing the Management and Innovation major.
The course content and teachers are extremely helpful and relevant to working in a business environment, as I work at pitcher partners the accounting firm, I find all the content can be applied to my daily work life.
However as time goes on and I am more involved in my work life, Im finding working in this environment is proving more valuable to me than the course.
I do believe though that the course has he potential to hold you in good stead and provide you with the knowledge needed when going down the business path.
I studied a management major -
Fees are not too expensive and course is good for the amount paid.
Would like better infrastructure and services
I studied with a Management major.
I'd totally avoid this course.
Don't go to VU. The only "good" thing there is the teachers and the friends you make. Else, everything is bad.
Positive: meeting like minded people, placement, access to database and resources and materials that are still valuable
Negative: subjects that i felt weren't as relevant, course co-ordinator was a bully, limited parking, group assessments, 4 years is too long
My advice to future students is: Make sure you get to know your fellow students because you will need a big support system as tutors and lecturers aren't always there when you need them, participate as much in class discussion, actually show up for classes because you'll perform well, if you feel things should be improved or something is unfair get together and bring it up as a group so speak up for your rights because it's your education and you're paying for it, take responsibility for your own learning so don't bother going if you're not going to put in the effort
