Positives: The Lecturers and Tutors do attend classes without fail, are very supportive and Knowledgeable of the units they are teachings. We are also provided with links to reference books that actually exist in the library, and can contact the lecturers/tutors at any time for consultations, clarifications or other general help. Overall, this sets up a good environment for one to succeed

Negatives: I can say that the cost of tuition fees is a bit high, more so if you are an international student. There is also arbitrary increase in fees by up to $500 or more for each semester . So that's the most tricky part of sustaining study.

My advice to future students is: I would advise future potential students that they should be prepared to work hard, have an open mind and have adequate funds for sustaining your stay in Australia since the bills are too much e,g, rent, food, transport etc.

Friendly tight-knit class, relaxed atmospheres in art units, friendly lecturers, fun units (not always in a classroom or lecture room, often in an art room creating and having fun)

Some lectures structure the online aspect completely differently to everyone else which is very confusing and, as a result, off putting. Some units were offered online only

My advice to future students is: Stay on top of your art and journals, always have spare printer ink (you go through a whole carton when printing for journals)

I'm majoring in Civil engineering.

Positive points are that it leads to a great career opportunities and negative are that it needs to have all attention towards studies so there is no time for other things

My advice to future students is: be positive and put efforts towards the course

Positive aspects would be the quality of the content and teachers. The teachers were amazing for this specific course and very passionate. It made the interesting work fun to study and the more boring stuff much more exciting.

The negative aspects of the course would be the lack of job prospects post university. I graduated in 2014 and worked in the field for a few years but due to lack of career progression, I now work in a different field.

My advice to future students is: Study hard and benefits will be reaped. I didn’t study as hard as I should and I regret it now.

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

Students are provided with plenty of experience out in the real world at real schools. This is a great way for students to decide if this is the correct career for them.

As for negatives there should be more units teaching students how to teach subjects/curriculum content

My advice to future students is: Ecu is a fantastic uni to get your teaching degree. It offers the most hands on experience and the support is fantastic

Positive- lots of practical experiences
On campus and online study options
Work ready and self learning is a strong emphasis.

Negative- weak area- literacy preparedness-however was a first year intact of a new course, so probably (hopefully) tweaked some what now.

My advice to future students is: Early preparedness. Plan semester out, especially assessment due dates- make a planner. Check rubrics and assessment instructions carefully and start pre-planning early. Take clear notes and ensure you post it note or similar where the information came from eg. author, page number, chapter, resource etc.
