I find Uni.. My educator is skilled, and I like how he thinks.
Positives: The course is conducted online, offers me a really wide array of examples in different information institutions
Negatives: There's little in the way to gather community that that the university offers distance ed students.
My advice to future students is: Online learning requires you to be on the ball. Locate a time during the week to focus on your studies and stick to it. Remember, most units require you to do 10 hours worth of work in the unit itself and more outside for personal learning and assignments.
Set up a calendar. Give yourself 2 weeks to complete the assignment. Ask questions to your lecturer, no question is dumb.
Make sure you communicate with others that are doing the course, they may offer you some perspectives you haven't thought about.
If study for hours is just too much, try the pomodoro technique to schedule you 45 mins to study and 10 on break.
Contact disability well before the university session starts and within the first week send the disability plan through.
Dictating assignments and using Opendysexic type in assignments will help you edit and read materials.
Breathe. This won't be for the rest of your life.
Positives: I’m doing the course that I have wanted to be in for years, and it has met my expectations and exceeded them too. I’m learning new things from a lecturer who is dedicated to her work. She allows us to give our own opinions and further learn through activities and discussion.
Negatives: In my Soc101 class the lecturer is the most biased person that you have ever met. She shuts down any opinions that don’t align with hers, picking favourites students at the same time. She obviously chooses who she does and doesn’t like, most likely because of opinions that have been voiced. A learning environment is meant to be safe, whereas in this environment we are told that we are wrong and should have a different view on things.
My advice to future students is: Do your work as it comes and don’t leave things until the last minute.
Positives: It will get in directly into the Policing academy without having to apply and hope to get accepted
Negatives: Because of the jobs opportunities it offers, you can't have physical disabilities
My advice to future students is: Make sure you have an idea on what you want to do after uni
Positives: The course structure is outlined well and you are provided with everything you need each semester to complete the subjects.
Negatives: Price of each subject plus the costs of textbooks are very high. There is minimal support from teachers when needed as there are so many students in each class. A lot of the subjects don’t relate to the career you choose. You need to be able to fit into a certain learning box to complete the course.
My advice to future students is: Take your time in choosing what course you want to do
My advice to future students is: Always give it a go
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.
