I find Uni.. I love my overall experience, and while I have personally struggled, the benefits outweigh the stress and I am ya ing fun learning about my new career. I am positive that I can complete this and have a better future

Positives: The support provided was excellent. The facilities of the university are well promoted and easy to find, with a lot of information available on every type of service offered, easy to access, and also easy to gain information to access- such as online chat or the student hub. Some tutors have stayed after class for an extra hour or organised holiday tutorials to help people keep up to date and encourage a better mark. I have used MESH and it has improved my marks. The university is very welcoming and encourages class participation and getting to know other students. The information that I am learning is at the standard I expected .

Negatives: Sometimes classes are back to back, where I’m rushing to 3-4 classes all day and don’t have enough time to eat/have a mental break/print notes in between. I have financial difficulties sometimes which can impact my attendance(petrol)/ printing notes/ internet access/textbook access

My advice to future students is: My advice is to just try!! You have until census (3-4 weeks, no financial penalty) to decide if you can manage/if you like it/ what is expected and what the content is. The world is changing and you need to be educated and have a degree to be able to support yourself and keep up with the world. It expands your knowledge and gives you a like-minded social life. You don’t need to be the smartest person in the world, If you follow criteria, show up to lectures, listen to your teachers, and do the recommended readings and homework, and also take advantage of the extra help available (mesh, pass) you will have no problem with completing the degree.
