I find Uni.. Thoroughly enjoyed! My eyes have been opened to a lot of new things because of it
Positives: Covers a broad range of topics, so not boring! There's a wide variety of courses, the WiFi is fast, and the campus is beautiful. Excellent facilities, the library is well stocked and the Professors are all of a high quality.
Negatives: Econ taught is mainly neoclassical and orthodox, so there isn't always a wide variety of viewpoints etc. Not a lot of free stuff on campus !!!
My advice to future students is: The faculty advisors are friendly, and only want whats best for you so they're always happy to help
Positives: A variety of electives from multiple disciplines to choose from.
Negatives: Cannot do double major like you can in B. ARTS. Considering arts advananced has students that have excelled in high school, i found that students and teachers were not as engaging as I had anticipated.
My advice to future students is: Choose electives based on your passions.
Positives: The courses engage well with new, interactive forms of media
Negatives: At times, the tutors do not engage with the students on a personal level and this is detrimental to the overall qualiyty of work
My advice to future students is: Thoroughly research and engage with the actual content of your course before applying
Positives: Broad area of study, multiple options to major in
Negatives: Some of it is extremely boring and dry content
My advice to future students is: Aim for higher results
Positives: Small amount of contact hours, get to meet some nice people
Negatives: Lack of communication, poor organization and boring content
My advice to future students is: Never give up 😂
Positives: I like that now I am a post grad student, we are learning a lot more of practical skills we can actually apply in the workforce
Negatives: I don’t like that the first three years of the bachelor was only theory related content
My advice to future students is: You don’t have to stick with the course you start in!
Positives: Great support from teachers, filled with theory, real life aspects incorporated eg working on marketing strategy with real local business’
Negatives: Not enough marketing electives at Adelaide Uni - not much creativity and variance in marketing electives
My advice to future students is: I wish someone came and spoke to the marketing final year lectures about how important it is to start applying for graduate jobs in your penultimate year to not only get used to the process there is for corporate jobs eg psychometric testing but also how you should prepare yourself for these
Positives: Large research scope, good workload
Negatives: Excessive group work
My advice to future students is: stay on top of readings
Positives: The positive aspects of my course are; the ability to create a distinctive writing technique and improve upon past techniques, learning of particular media theories and how to apply them in a practical way, being able to engage with students and peers on a variety of topics that increase both knowledge and personal relationships, and to take part in particular programs which will increase resume structure and personal competency
Negatives: The negative aspects are; being forced into groupwork which contributes to final grades, and having to go to tutorials with an 80% attendance rate, so you can only miss two throughout the year
My advice to future students is: A piece of advice I would offer is to be as organised as you possibly can, my first year was a disaster, I never knew what was due, and when it was due, and I never checked my university emails. Be sure to do this every day and keep a diary of due dates to keep up with the workload
Positives: You learn to write well, and apply your thinking critically. Another positive aspect is the amount of research skills that you develop.
Being able to digest large amounts of information is practiced, and rewarded in assessments
Negatives: They don't teach you how to critically approach real life situations, or how to appropriately work in groups. The writing is quite varied depending on the teacher too, not uniform enough across different faculties.
My advice to future students is: Try your hardest now. Doesn't matter if you want to do something else in the future, learning fundamental skills which are present across every course will help you every step of the way.
