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: 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.
