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.
The positive aspects of this course was the support. Lecturers and tutors will respond almost immediately and help out. The negative aspect was the pracs. I feel there was not much support
My advice to future students is: Be more then prepared for your pracs in teacher. Almost to be flexible.
The positive aspects of the course is the hands on learning during tutorials as well as many aspects to engage in professional practice to use skills and knowledge learnt. Another positive would be that a lot of the units are very useful not only in learning how to teach but also in developing your own knowledge.
A negative of the course would be that the units for professional practice in year one and two have lectures that lead up to going on practicum, these lectures are useless and all the information can be summed up in a single lecture rather than multiple lectures you have to attend. However in year three and four these lectures and tutorials are useful in preparing for practicum.
My advice to future students is: Not all of your mentor teachers you receive on practicum will be great, so the best thing to do is stick it out because your professional skills are usually better off for it because you have to adapt and think on your feet.
Negatives = exams and the how much the assignments are worth for e.g 60% assignment and 40% exam.
Positive = great lecturers and a good amount of prac
My advice to future students is: Study study study
- learning content was relevant to assignments.
- adequate gateway to my career.
- positive and supportive learning environment.
- too much online content and activities - I miss handing in essays, tests in class etc.
My advice to future students is: It’s a great course especially considering it’s three years in length.
I thought the course was excellent. Overall, I got a lot of support from lecturers and the Tutors. I thought the it was a great experience working along side other people pursuing there passion.
My advice to future students is: Do the Uni Prep course as it allows you to be prepared for Uni.
Positives are the learning, structure and information and support provided,
Negatives is no interaction between students/teachers in lectures, but overall the teachers are very good.
My advice to future students is: To keep up with weekly tasks, falling behind leads to unnessessary stress
The content is very thorough and relevant. I find the topics really interesting.
There's too much of a focus on research methods - I don’t want to be a researcher so I find this irrelevant.
My advice to future students is: Keep at it. Don’t give up
Positive aspects - it has good mentoring programs, facilities online and on campus that provide students with their studying needs. End of semester reviews and surveys. Negative aspects - Payments are quite demanding and there's not payment plans to give students a fair go.
My advice to future students is: Do research on courses before enrolling. There are questionnaires you can fill out that suits you or you can speak to career Hub about your career pathways and offer you a few suggestions.
It’s intensity for knowing what to do in the real situation is awesome. Love clinical workshops and meeting new people.
Hate that we can’t go on road with St John as students, and how strict it can be
My advice to future students is: Work hard and get clinical practice wherever you can
