The course as a whole was fantastic, UniSA have a very engaging environment in the creative fields and staff that have qualifications in the fields too. First year study was mainly introductory and included a lot of theory based subject matter. However dull theory based subject matter may sound in a practical based course and industry, the scope of learning was invaluable. Almost all courses were hosted by a qualified and knowledgeable lecturer and more often than not they were accompanied by tutors too. Following the first year, and each year after that, course work becomes a lot more industry focused with a lot of on site and real world projects. Positive aspects would include the ability to seek help, assistance and advice from multiple staff, including lecturers, tutors and campus support staff. Additionally, access to amazing online and physical learning resources. The workshop located on campus is amazing, heaps of flexability for working times, out of hours even!
Negative aspects included some over crowding issues in some courses. Older buildings (that I believe are getting upgraded during 2017-2018) had smaller rooms and even less resources such as computer access. and the only other negative aspect I would say would be that while there was a substantial amount of resources for students, there could be even more to enhance the Uni SA learning experience for this course.
My advice to future students is: Go for it! Uni is a wonderful experience and this course in particular is jam packed with interesting subject matter, flexibility in your projects (past first year) and an engaging networking environment.
