Based on the ECU student reviews that we've collected, here's some advice for future students:
Prepare your week, be organised and don't fall behind or leave things to the last minute;
Consider the Uni prep course, it will give you a better understanding than school does;
If you can, look for opportunities to work in your industry while studying, it's better to grow a network before you finish;
Utilise the teaching staff/faculties - ask questions, understand better and find out about placement opportunities;
Don't cram - try to study during the term session;
Make use of the student support services & systems;
If there's an industry trip or networking night, make sure you go, ask questions and get peoples contact details.

I did an Arts Management major.

It gave me an understanding of multiple subjects such as law, finance, marketing and gave us an understanding of the arts industry. The hands on experience gained through my two years working front of house for WAAPA has prepared me to work in a modern arts industry.

The lecturers were often the same and were rarely engaging nor highly educational. As we touch on multiple subjects, we do not possess an in-depth understanding of any one subject. The marking criteria also changed based on lecturer, many students feeling that our assignments were not read but we were rather giving the same Mark regardless.

My advice to future students is: If you want a broad understanding as arts business as a whole then the course is great, especially for making connections. But if you are Interested in arts marketing/arts law, take a specialised degree with art focused electives.

Information is closely linked to the industry. This course makes you very employable.

A negative is the Bachelor of Arts is useless. You’ll never be rich

My advice to future students is: Forget social life. Study. Study. Studyyyyy

Positives: It's a small course (only accepts 25 people a year), so it's a very tight-knit and supportive environment. It's also very well structured, providing a broad practical knowledge of business skills and the arts industry (it's arts management) with lecturers who are active in the industry. It also provides many networking opportunities and features multiple parc work elements.

Negatives: The small number of people doing it occasionally gives it a little bit of a claustrophobic feel, there is too much unpaid work done for the uni in the first year, and networking with students in other courses is also difficult (not sure if this is really the uni's issue though).

My advice to future students: It's a very niche course, so be sure what you're getting into, otherwise just do it, I highly recommend it!
