The positives are that it was great for an after school taste of uni and taught things such as referencing

Negatives are that apart from referencing, nothing was really taught that wasn't learnt in high school

My advice to future students is: If you had trouble in high school, this is a slower version of many of the same lessons for you

Negatives is it's a course that had no flexibility due to the field of accounting but if I had time again I wouldn't do the accounting aspect (I'd just do a business course) as I don't want to be an accountant. Positive it's nearly over.

My advice to future students is: Ensure good communication with lecturers from start

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.

Charles Sturt University offer a really great distance education school. The lecturers are flexible and always willingly to help you. Whether this be with extentions because of external commitments or whether it be for some other reason. They are fast and effective and communicating with students meaning turn around times are exceptionally quick. Teachers make themselves available on the weekends via email. One of the best supports available through CSU is the fact that assignment drafts can be written and emailed to dedicated academic supervisors who provide incredibly detailed asspects of the course. Online chat services also make studying through CSU incredibly pleasing. I would recommend life as a CSU student to anyone and i feel really priviledged to be a graduate of this university and more importantly am incredibly excited to be returning to this uni to study my policing degree in just a few weeks.

My advice to future students - Do it. Be a CSU student it is one of the funnest experiences of your life and you gain so much more than a degree. friends are for life and the lecturers want you to excel so much.

The course was very practical, we had both theory based subjects and on hands practical subjects.

One aspect the university could improve on is incorporating accounting softwares within the program.

My advice to future students - The degree will assist your academic qualifications , however, keep your mind open to enrolling into another program where you can utilize for academic skills and learn the practical side of accounting softwares.
