Positives: It is extremely flexible, there are multiple online units, there is also the ability to pick units that run on the same day, so you may only have to attend 2 days a week. I have also found the assignments reasonable and may of the areas of study on the arts faculty don't have exams!

Negatives: Many - assignments...

There were many positive aspects of the course. The degree has a vast range of subjects students can choose from and this really allows students to make this degree what they want it to be. You have the choice to study exactly what you want to study. In some subject majors, such as politics and Media and Communications do of...

Depending on your major, there aren't heaps of career paths that open up after completing the course. You could go through without much guidance on this if you don't ask and make an effort.

A positive aspect of the course would be how broad it is. As an indecisive person, I found it important to ensure I wouldn't feel 'boxed' into a certain subject or area.

With arts, I'm able to pursue many aspects of my interests like Politics and Cinema.

A negative aspect would have to be the Arts faculty cuts which h...

The positives is that I get a lot out of my major but I wish that I felt that way about the overall course. I feel like a lot of the electives are just filler content

My advice to future students is: Don’t stress about your atar, focus more on finding something you love

Positive: I gained a lot of likeminded friends on campus and enjoyed the campus atmosphere. It's a small campus with a smaller student than the larger campus in Clayton, so it's a bit easier to get to know people there. I also enjoyed the variety of electives offered, especially how many languages were on offer.

Negatives...

Positives: The University has a great reputation, is very well connected internationally (it has campuses in South Africa as well as Malaysia, as well as a study centre in Italy), and the academics that delivered the course were obviously great in their field. I learned a lot about the world and drew a broad education from th...
