Positives: The small cohort allows for a friendly personalised feel. The content is all relevant to the degree and the job that will follow. The lecturers are caring, and always willing to help.

Negatives: The practicum can be a long way away. The timetable has no felxability, so you have to work around it

My advice to future students is: It’s a great degree, but requires application. If your not going to put the work in, you won’t get much in return

Positives: 1. The course is thorough and gives you a great chance of getting a job over other applicants.
2. The teaching and resources are outstanding, making learning the course content easy to learn.
3. Most of the course is online, meaning you can still work part time while doing the course. The practical components are all completed in one go at the end of the course.

Negatives: 1. Being primarily online, it can often be hard to prioritise time management and get course content done in time.
2. The practical component can be expensive as travel and accommodation has to be arranged at the students expense to Perth.
3. However, overall the course has very few negative aspects.

My advice to future students is: This course is great for a career and strength and conditioning, giving you a one up over other students who have not done this course. It requires a bachelors degree in health.

Positives: Very strong emphasis on hands on and practical learning. The motor sports workshop provides a massive opportunity for students to learn some practical aspects of engineering and design during the annual building of vehicles for motor sports competition

Negatives: I don’t think I had many negative experiences with the course. Maybe the workloads in some units are a bit too much for the short semesters.

My advice to future students is: A great place to study in a very relaxed city!

Positives: I got a lot of exposure to the Sports industry and was encouraged to gain hands on experience as part of my units. I much prefer when a course is both practical as well as theory. Another positive was that my electives were pretty much a chance to play sport e.g. volleyball and pilates. Although we learnt theory as well, a number of aspects in some units were built around playing sport or getting to partake in classes like pilates and yoga. The course structure was another positive, we got a lot of choice in which units we wanted to complete.

Negatives: I had to complete a lot of science based units that I didn't consider relevant to what I wanted to study. Although we got to choose a lot of our units, there were a few that were set in stone, these of which tended to be the ones that I didn't do as well in as I didn't want to do them. Another negative was that a lot of my lecturers weren't all that approachable, it made it difficult for me to seek help as I didn't feel it was appreciated.

My advice to future students is: To make sure you find a way to approach lecturers if you need too, I didn't so much purely as I thought they were unapproachable but I felt like that brought me down. Alternatively, seek help another way, through tutors or other students.

Positives: I got the opportunity to complete a workplacement, this of which was all organised for me. All I had to do was apply for the unit, attend and interview and the university set me up with a 10 week placement in my chosen field. I also got to go on a number of trips including getting tours of stadiums were we got to talk to industry professionals. I also really liked that we got the choice to select certain units/electives, so we could focus specifically on what we wanted to learn about.

Negatives: Some of the lecturers/tutorers were not enganging or exciting and could sometimes make you feel like you didn't want to be there. It makes it a lot harder to want to learn when your teacher isn't enthusiastic about the class. I also found that there were a lot of group projects. I know they want you to be able to work in a team, but it makes it very difficult when you get put with people who aren't at your standard and don't do the work. I found it put a lot more pressure on me and it brought my grades down.

My advice to future students is: I would recommend getting all the hands on experience that is offered to you. For example, when there is an industry trip, go, ask questions and learn. Don't use it as a day off because it really wont get you anywhere. I also recommend working hard and attend all lectures and complete your course to your greatest ability.
