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!

Positives: The broad age range of students this give me a unique perspective on different topics and provides me with different view points

Negatives: Lots of the information isn’t factual enough therefore can be interpreted and confuseing

My advice to future students is: If you are planning to do youth work possibly do a community service course too as it is very beneficial

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

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 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
