Positives: The campus is amazing, has amazing facilities. And provides a very hands on approach. Giving you practical experience in every unit
Negatives: There isn’t any. They even changed the structure to suit students.
My advice to future students is: Be sure to have the motivation and dedication to study
Positives: The course allowed and promoted flexibility in the duration and location of study. The university offered several locations with units offered across each campus on offer. The course sourced placements and provided longer placement durations than other universities to increase skills and experience.
The course offered the opportunity to travel overseas to complete units and placements which were easily recognised towards course completion - these included USA, Timor-Leste and a remote school in the Northern Territory. Much of these international placement experiences were funded by the university.
Negatives: The course administration at the university were not organised, nor had a sense of urgency when dealing with students. Often lectures and tutorials would be overbooked and students would be told the day before that they had been moved to different tutorials at different times. This made it particularly difficult when managing outside commitments.
The course is very much tailored to self-motivated learners as there is no accountability for not attending tutorials and lectures.
My advice to future students is: Take on as many experiences as the university provides. The course was able to provide me with many opportunities related to placement opportunities that I could only dream of and that were mostly funded by the university. The course is suited towards self-motivated individuals. Best of luck in your endeavours!
Positives: Some of the positive attributes of my course are: • Obtain loads of placement hours, leading into experience.
• Connections which are formed with peers and educators.
• Supportive and social environment.
Negatives: Some negative attributes consist of:
• High pressure as there aren’t any exams.
• The Literacy and Numeracy test to be able to get your VIT is difficult, as we haven’t had any experience with exams.
My advice to future students is: Communicate with peers and educators, as not only will you obtain friendship.. however also have network connections for the future.
Uni is much more pleasurable when you build friendships, as you’re not alone and feel the need to give up. I believe having met certain people along my uni journey, this has truly boosted my morale. Also able to bounce of one another if you’ve got any questions or concerns
excellent placement allocations
Very informative of course structure from the first year
Classes are far apart from placement dates
Location of the classes are geographically far, makes it easier to miss classes
My advice to future students is: Be prepared to stand your own ground and own your responsibilities.
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
Positive - I found the curriculum to be really solid.
The negatives - I found the teachers were poor and could have helped facilitate better understanding of the material for the students.
My advice to future students is: Take the time to look around at what best suits you
Lots of placement, it’s prep to 12 which is good and the assessments are pretty good.
The uni are very disorganised, don’t respond to emails or questions
My advice to future students is: Get your subject selections for the 4 years sorted before you start so you don’t have any troubles
