Decide carefully so that you won't regret your decision. Do what you want to do. Do not do your work at the very last minute. Be alert on the updates of your work and be prepared to work with others.
My advice to future students is: Enjoy your life. Everything just gonna be okay.
The course is a bit hard to organise since the subjects have a lot of dues overlapping especially during week 10 to 12. But overall, the course is very helpful yet tiring.
My advice to future students is: Organise and mange your time well and do not procastinate
The university itself has a very well-conditioned facilities. The subjects that are in my course are easy to be understood and it is also easy to interact with the lecturers and tutors through the forum as well. However, the subjects have so many workloads which make it harder to score subjects with higher percentage of carry marks.
My advice to future students is: Do not procrastinate as every works that you have submitted worth so many marks.
I'm doing Master of Biotechnology (Advanced).
Positives: The course is a good mix of theoretical and practical knowledge with a year of coursework that trains you in all the advanced research techniques in industries and R&D and the basics in the fields like molecular biology, cell biology, bioinformatics, etc. The research quotient that is a year long project gives the opportunity to explore the research world, right from how to propose a research to how to communicate the research to a larger audience. Its an interesting course which strengthens a person's scientific writing skills, theoretical knowledge and analytical thinking process.
Negatives: The approach is predominantly research oriented. Hence, the course is inappropriate for people looking to get into the biotech industry.
My advice to future students is: Avoid procrastination, seek help from the teaching and learning centre. They are very helpful with how to scientifically write the assignments and how to analyse scientific data. Ask a lot of questions without hesitation and talk to as many people as you can to get a hang of how the university works. Take active participation in on campus clubs and societies to have a good time at the university. Make international friends.
Positives: One great aspect about Commerce is the way it is taught. Regardless of whether you have taken the subject in high school or whether you know nothing about it, everyone starts with the basic debits & credits. And because of this, I believe anyone, who has interest in this subject, would be able to grasp the contents taught pretty easily.
Negatives: Real life aren't exactly as black and white as textbooks. I feel like the course do not really prepare you for the corporate world as well as job experiences would, mainly because the course is very textbook-oriented.
My advice to future students is: Try to get some working experience while studying such as by applying for internships. Often times, students will realise that they might not like working in the corporate/finance sector as much as they like learning it. Also, work experience could also help you have a better understanding of the materials that you are learning in the course.
Great support from the lecturers and tutors. Interesting contents provided. Does not have many compulsory subjects, giving students opportunities to take electives from other interested areas.
My advice to future students is: Revise after every lectures or tutorials.
The course is informative and educational. It helps you develop your skills and has many opportunities to gain experience. The positive parts of the course include the lecturers, who are very experienced and the tutorials which help you with your understanding of topics.
My advice to future students is: To attend lectures
The course is interesting. However if you want to get a good mark you should study hard every day. It will bring you many useful knowledges.Let you make foundations of your degree.
My advice to future students is: study hard every day
Positives: Interesting topics covered during the course. Lecturers and tutors are helpful in learning process.
Negatives: Involves a lot of alone study hours. Lecture slides are not enough must buy and read textbook for exams.
My advice to future students is: Be prepared for a whole life change and do not rely on anyone but yourself. Great passion is needed to focus and complete your degree.
Workload was doable, staff were helpful, structure was disorganised because staff were changing so I had to overload during my third year, etc. but it was overall doable.
My advice to future students is: Make sure you have good time management skills
