The course structure consists of a core of ten subjects, a major of eight subjects and 6 elective subjects.

Core subjects covers principals fundamentals to the IT discipline including programming principles, databases, data communications, systems analysis and design, project management, IT ethics and information security.

We had to choose one specific major subject and in the final year we complete a project which involves investigation, design and implementation of a substantial computer application to solve a real world problem relevant to our chosen major.

Positives: Excellent course material; supportive lecturers; majority of course available online; international qualification; up-to-date course material; leading edge ideas and practice; plenty of time to complete units.
Negatives: Personal time-management issues (I find it difficult to complete assignments!); some tech information is challenging - lack of in-depth explanation.

My advice to future students is: Do your research and be very clear on what career paths you want to build or follow. Make sure you have an aptitude for the qualification/s you are seeking. Go out and work in the industry, even part-time or volunteer some time, to make sure this path is what you really want. Plan your study time well; put time aside for completion of all assignments; find a mentor or someone who can help you out; be confidant.
