Positives: Its easy

The studying environment here in the ANU is very good. Students and lecturers are all very determined and focused, which really helps push you to do your best in any situation.
My advice to future students is: Don’t be afraid. Ask questions and seek help. There are many resources that can help you, whether it be study matters, mental health, career development or even personal/self discovery and others.
Negatives: need lots of information
My advice to future students is: read
Lecturers are straight to the point and concise in slides. The university has many libraries dedicated to business related degrees. The CBE building is perfect for Finance students to go to help desks and has many amenities.
My advice to future students is: Think how you can maximize your degree with your electives possibly taking up more majors and minors since ANU is very flexible in degree planning.
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
Intense workload. Short duration of semesters. A lot of prerequisites are assumed. Very little time allotted from the time coursework ends to the time when exams begin. This forces you to remain on your toes and induces a lot of stress. You end up a learning a lot, but it comes at a cost of peace.
My advice to future students is: Prerequisite knowledge is a must. There is no time to start from scratch.
POSITIVE - I'm really enjoying the content and it's exactly what I expected and what I wanted to study.
My advice to future students is: take a gap year
