I majored in Strategic Communication (PR)

Positives: Writing skills and networking skills

Negatives: Not enough study about elements that are relevant to the career

My advice to future students is: Do more experience

Positives: A positive aspect to my course is the extensive facilities my university provides. The fully functioning studio that students are able to utilise and create within is a great advantage.

Negatives: The negative of my course isn't necessarily what is wrong with the course but more so uni life, Although with my course I find the core subjects to be irrelevant...

My advice to future students is: Make the effort and don't just do a course unless you absolutely love what you're studying, University is expensive and is very time consuming.
