I found Uni.. Fantastic opportunity with lots of scholarships and great lecturers
Positives: As many students were from all over the world we quickly developed global networks
Negatives: The GFC and rising cost of fees meant that I have another 30% in student loans that originally was planned
My advice to future students is: Fast tracking a degree depends on you and your goals.
Positives: It’s very useful if you have an interest in politics or diplomacy. Law provides a good basis for a number of employment areas not just for people wanting to become lawyers as such.
Negatives: It’s quite stressful, Bond provides a trimester study system with less holidays. But of course every uni degree is stressful in that sense.
My advice to future students is: Do your research on degrees your potentially interested in. Get work experience or volunteer or shadow people in your field of interest to get a feel for things
Positives: Small classes, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers, amazing access to resources
My advice to future students is: Be prepared for a fast paced degree
Positives: The reason I chose bond was the degree was accelerated and the small class sizes as I would not have been able to do uni without the personal interaction with my lectures
Negatives: The huge cost of the course and that when finishing uni I did not end up In a better career. I could have done what I do now with out the degree
My advice to future students is: It’s a great university, with a great culture and if you embrace the culture you will suceed
Positives: Easy access to everything
Negatives: Very intensive
My advice to future students is: Come prepared for all nighters
Positives: Great combination of subjects. You get an insight of the process of planning. And the management as well. Both apparently is very important especially when it involves design projects.
Negatives: The course is not detailed out properly. It could be more spread out and informative with practical visits to sites.
My advice to future students is: You could definitely go for the course and make sure you get what you need to learn. Over and above the limits of the course.
Positives: The class size at Bond is really small especially in my course because of which there is a lot student professor interaction.
My course has assignments which mostly deal with case studies and give a more practical approach to the theory that we learn.
My course at Bond is conducted in an intensive pattern hence I have a lot spare time to work on my assignments.
Negatives: The only negative aspect would the lack of electives in my course
My advice to future students is: Start working on your assignments as soon as it assigned to you. Try and research as much as you can for your assignments. People might say project management isn't an important course but the lessons and subjects learnt during the course builds a great foundation for our careers
Positives: Hands on
2 years (trimesters)
My advice to future students is: Invest! It’s worth it
Positives: The class sizes are small which makes the quality of teaching much higher as individual questions can be answered with little to no inconvenience. The assessment style is practical and hands-on rather than the “textbook-style” learning many law students have to deal with. Overall it’s a nurturing and friendly environment in which I’ve made a number of friends, and have felt comfortable for the entirety of my degree to date.
Negatives: I don’t think there are many negative aspects at all! Law is an intense degree wherever you go, so having selected this study path I was well aware and equipped for the amount of work I would be expected to do.
My advice to future students is: Don’t think that you can’t change your mind later down the track! I’ve had a few changes in my study so far, and have dropped out of my second degree actually and am pursuing my passion for law now. There is no shame in chopping and changing, you just need to do what’s right for you 😀
Positives: Amazing facilities and teachers, top notch support from the university, interesting subjects and many opportunities to further my career and networking whilst I'm studying, so that I'm more likely to get a job when I've finished
Negatives: Some law subjects are a bit dry (shock shock).
My advice to future students is: Make sure you actually want to study the degree before you commit to the debt haha.
