Positive is the breadth of content. I feel as though I am learning and the content is useful.
Negative is it is inconsistent. Some units are poorly structured or offer little to no support
My advice to future students is: Be prepared to self learn
It is a very interesting course, you will learn so many things about the things that affect people's health from a local, national and international scope. You will learn about the behind the scenes work of the health sector which is useful in understanding how governments and non-government organisations improve the health of people.
Something negative is that there is a unit which teaches about how to conduct health research, a lot of prior knowledge is assumed, so if you have not studied in health science before it can be very overwhelming and confusing.
My advice to future students is: I would say make sure you keep on top of the unit materials, readings, lectures and tutorials. All of these will help you complete your assignments as they are very relevant.
Positives are that the course provided more taxation units than another other university in Perth, the teachers were motivational and the information was useful and can be applied. Cannot think of any negatives
My advice to future students is: Take every opportunity that is given to you. If there is the option to attend a university facilitated event, take it and network as much as you can, even volunteer regardless of whether it relates to your course or not. And take the opportunity given to you to learn as much as possible, utilise the resources!
Friendly people and faces with intriguing course material
My advice to future students is: Always go to your tutorials
Positive - I did this course online so that I could also work full time and earn a living.
Negative - you need to be very disciplined and make time to go through course notes.
My advice to future students is: Get into a good routine where you set aside time each day for study to keep on top of it.
The overall positive for the course is the people you get to meet and the amount of resources related to the specific course given. The overall negative would be lack of communication about reports, assessments and practicals.
My advice to future students is: For potential students, don’t do a course that you think you want to do, make sure you want to do it. University is quite expensive and failing can cost you heaps.
I like the friendliness of the teachers and support members but I dislike their marking criteria and assignments that do not relate to the course (in my opinion)
My advice to future students is: If you really want to do something go for it! Don’t look back and keep charging ahead
Positive: Very flexible
Negative: Confusion on some topics
My advice to future students is: Work hard, revise everyday and don’t sweat the small things
Positives There is heaps of support both internally and externally but the negative would be sometimes the teachers provide little direction when it comes to assignments
My advice to future students is: Make sure you are prepared for every class and don’t just enrol in any subject - make sure you will see it through to the end
I'm doing this course online - The assignments are so heavy on percentage and very ambiguous.
My advice to future student - Only do this course if you had no other option. I do it online so I can work.
