Positives: Bachelor of Laws; covered every area of law, was able to find where my strengths and weaknesses lied and what area I was really interested in learning more about. classes were of small numbers which was fantastic as it enabled me to create a group of friends and not be lost in the crowd, smaller numbers meant we produced a closer relationship with lecturers/tutors which allowed me to receive more help and advice throughout the course. the same lecturers also took more than one class so it was lovely to have a lecturer to remembered faces and names.

Negatives: only negative was that subjects were only available once a year either semester 1 or 2, so if you missed completing a subject in a certain semester, you would have to wait the following year to complete it, this happened to me which had me a bit annoyed but there was nothing I could do. summer and winter semesters didn't have much of a variety of subject, and core usually weren't offered during these semesters, so its not ideal if you need to complete over the summer/winter periods

My advice to future students is: law at VU is fantastic I highly recommend it, they offer lots of support to students and so many ways to connect with VU, they also help students with career advice and send through emails on the regular with work experience programs and graduate programs up for offer so students can apply. they regualary have speakers come down to talk and hold many events for students in terms of their career. Lecturers come from well known institutions and corporations and are highly educated in the field.

Positives: The course allows for hands on experience whether it be through classes like advocacy where you’re taught how to approach court matters, or also through programs with the magistrates court there is the option to learn about the career on the job. There is a lot of social aspects as well such as yearly balls, bbqs and much more

Negatives: The university can be quiet slow at responding to issues, responding with results and now bring in the block placement learning

My advice to future students is: I would say it’s a very hard course however if you keep up to date with assignment and reading you’ll be able to do well. And also to put yourself up for these situations

Positives: I find this course very chill, there’s no majorly overwhelming assessments or essays and the content itself is very interesting if you’re into psychology. There is also a lot of help from the tutors, they are there whenever you need them for any question big or small.

Negatives: There aren’t many negative aspects of my course except maybe when we receive assignments and they are due within a couple days or sometimes the next day, although, these assignments are not very difficult so it’s not that bad, only if you have a busy schedule I guess.

My advice to future students is: Be sure to choose a course that you’re interested in! It makes the work so much easier if you’re engaged with it, I know so many people who have chosen a course in a field for the purpose of that potential career making them lots of money, only for them to quit their course after the first year and change into another. In saying that, of course there’s nothing wrong with exploring different options but I don’t think you should choose a course you know that you’re not at all interested in besides the potential income from working in that field.

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.

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
