Positives: The tutors put in a great amount of effort in improving the knowledge and skill level of students
My advice to future students is: Study hard and attend classes
Positives: The course is very easy to study. The content is well presented and there is lots of support.
Negatives: Because there are so many students studying the course, especially in the first year it can be hard to get one on one support or more time with the lecturer to ask questions.
My advice to future students is: It can be hard to find jobs outside of the degree.but not many people finish the whole degree and just use it to increase their GPA
Positives: One on one learning
In depth tutorial learning
Hands on experiences
Real world quality experiences
Negatives: Some tutors and lecturers tend to change subjects as they go.
My advice to future students is: Don't be afraid of your course. Don't let the stresses take over you.
If it's too much, take a break from it and start again.
If you really feel you can't do it - then try something else.
Do not be afraid to try different things!
I majored in Accounting.
Positives: Self study and group work
Negatives: You don’t get to see the errors that you have made easily on your assessments and exams and therefore can’t improve on your future self as you don’t know what you got wrong.
My advice to future students is: Do whatever you can to see your errors so you can learn and improve
Positives: The positive aspects if my course is that we get to do assignments related to real world businesses and the campus location is very convenient
Negatives: Sometimes the units are taught very traditionally and texbook based which can be boring and not very innovative in terms of its teaching
My advice to future students is: when you do exams and assignments take into consideration your course major and how it can affect the way you write or answer questions and problems in units that are in other diciplines
Positives: The business school of QUT has a really good reputation. The fact that they have dual masters are useful for shortening time.
Negatives: The dual masters are not available to everyone. You need to have extensive work experience to apply and get accepted and the guidelines for that was not clear
My advice to future students is: It is def worth doing as it cuts down a year than doing the two masters separately but it depends if you are interested in the majors pairing that they offer
Positives: The course gives students great opportunity for hands on experience both on and off campus. Subjects are great and give you a variety of learning opportunities.
Negatives: There is not enough preparation in the final year for finding a job. During final year they make it seem like everyone will get a job in the hospital but the reality is that isn’t going to happen.
My advice to future students is: It’s a great course and it’s a course that has been running longer than other universities. Study hard and make sure you follow the referencing protocol. But most of all enjoy yourself.
Positives: The positive aspects of the course are that you are able to pick from a really wide range of study areas. So you can do second majors and minors in all different creative and business areas that are totally different from your major. Eg. major - film and television, second major - interior design
Negatives: There are a few terrible core subject that feel like a waste of time as you don’t feel like you are learning anything. You are just forced to do group work about subjects that are not completely relevant to your study area
My advice to future students is: I would say to future students that it is a great course if you have multiple creative interests but you do not know what to do as a career.
Positives: Some good lecturers, access to good resources on campus, good staff support if needed, clear course outlines
Negatives: Rubbish course content, mandatory core subjects that were irrelevant to the degree, no actual skills development, no actual learning, the course was NOT as advertised (it did NOT teach real-world skills like using publisher or similar).
My advice to future students is: Don't do that degree at QUT
Positives: Great teaching staff that take the time to explain content to you. They are very professional and utilise great teaching resources. They are willing to talk to you when help is required and will respond quickly to any enquiries. They also assist post graduation.
Negatives: There aren't too many negative aspects. The experience has been largely positive. The university has listened to feedback and adjusted the courses.
My advice to future students is: Get involved. The university has so much to offer. I particularly took up mooting and was quite successful. I enjoyed this experience and it helped me develop some practical skills that are difficult to cover at the academic level. There are many more options and I would recommend getting as involved as possible.
