I find Uni.. I’m enjoying so far
Positives: Flexibility to choose the units that I’m interested
Negatives: Too expensive; too much workload
My advice to future students is: Work hard, study smart, play harder
I did accounting and business management
Positives: Requirement for accounting grad job
Negatives: Alot of the lecturers and tutors were shocking, application of study to working world, completing degree is one thing and getting a job as a graduate accounting was another
My advice to future students is: Vacationer work,work experience, ensure ur meeting subject requirement for any future qualifications u plan to get, embrace all networking opportunities
I did a double degree in Accounting and Finance.
Positives: Being able to a Industry Based Learning (IBL) program at big firms. Most of the content is interesting if you engage
Negatives: The most negative part of the course is that some lectures the lecturer just reads from the slides which is a waste of your own time. But I only found that with a few classes. Also lot of the units can be heavy on assignments (ie essays) that don't help nor teach you anything other than stress you out.
My advice to future students is: For a business course, know what you want to do after you finish university and tailor your course accordingly. Don't do easy units for the sake of getting through university, its lazy and could make you fall behind in the workplace because of lack of technical knowledge. If you aren't engaged with course work question whether this is the industry for you.
Positives: Practicality. Some motivational lecturers. Placements
Negatives: Some lecturers were not inspiring or passionate
My advice to future students is: Mental health nursing was not introduced until 2nd year
Positives: Good environment
Negatives: Not really engaging
My advice to future students is: Job prospect after finish the study
Positives: Monash got a lot of libraries for each field of study. The wifi in the campus is superbly fast! You can rewind every lecture in the recording session. All over monash is a worldclass university.
Negatives: The price is to expensive for international student. We also hard to get scholarship
My advice to future students is: Monash is out of the city. Make sure you go to monash for study, not for playing:)
experienced lecturers and tutors who provide high quality of teaching
My advice to future students is: monash university is your 1st choice if you are willing to dedicate time in the course you have chosen
Positives: - highly interactive
- relevant knowledge
- up to date facilities and resources
- great assignments
- sense of connection and support in the cohort
Negatives: - time consuming
- challenging workload
My advice to future students is: - try your hardest in the course but also enjoy uni life
- make the most out of your learning. It will just help you and also your career
- help others and let them help you!
Positives: There’s a balance of different disciplines of study, which is what I like because sometimes commerce and be too analytical and global can be very intense. I enjoy a balance
Negatives: Nothing really
My advice to future students is: If you are unsure of doing a double degree start out in one and if you don’t like one you can drop it
Positives: The law part of the degree makes you highly employable and most of my friends have finished with jobs. The law faculty is well respected, and there is good research capability within the university. The undergraduate degree also takes its time in teaching subjects, unlike the post-grad which is intensive. There are opportunities to study abroad and do practical internships for credit. The Arts degree is enormous, and covers many interest areas. Some lecturers are very passionate. Tutorials encourage the development of critical thinking skills, and can be quite social.
Negatives: The law faculty does not have great pastoral care, though it is trying to address the higher than average instances of anxiety and depression. The faculty is not very flexible in terms of making arrangements to study from home or to work with students. There is a higher focus on grades than real learning. The Arts faculty can be quite disorganised, and change things at the last minute.
My advice to future students is: Get involved early - in everything - as the best way to get to know people and make friends. Law especially lends itself to group learning and study and you will save yourself hours of time by having a study group. Also, consider the broader support of the university as well as the prestige of a name. Monash may help you get jobs because of the great name, but be aware it does operate like a big bureaucracy and is not always flexible and can be quite an old fashioned approach to learning and discipline.
