Positives: The positive aspects is that the course is giving me an overview of all fields of commerce in first year so I can choose how I want to specialise
Negatives: The lectures are not particularly engaging
My advice to future students: Do the course but try stay on top of work it’s easy to fall behind because you get bored as well
I'm doing a Journalism major.
Positives: My tutors go out of their way to ensure they are not only teaching us content, but that we fully know and understand it. They spend time out of hours discussing things that need working on and provide us ways to improve. My tutors are always more than willing to reply to my questions via email and will also run an online blackboard session for extra tutoring if needed. The course also provides many opportunities to gain work experience, and we can make workplace relationships with guest speakers and networking events.
Negatives: There really isn't any negatives about my course, it's great. Maybe if class times this semester were in the morning is the only thing, but I understand the uni can only timetable so many classes at once
My advice to future students: Choose to study at USC over other universities because you will have a better learning environment and university culture.
Positives: Three positive aspects of my course were, some lecturers put in the time and effort to be engaging which helped you get where you need to be. They offered extra learning sessions twice a week to help out, and when available would always post extra information. The final one is the course itself gets you ready for placement and going out to find a job. Many students were able to find casual work in the field due to placements.
Negatives: The negatives are, if you don't enjoy a particular topic, it can be hard to grasp the concept of it. I know I had this issue, a long with many other students. Second was some lecturers would do the bare minimum, which could be looked at negatively or positively. It can prepare you a little more, but it can also become extremely stressful. This is when the extra sessions came in handy.
My advice to future students: Time management skills for this course are key. You need to stay on top of the work. Study a small amount daily rather than all the night before the exam. Take advantage of extra sessions. They will help.
Positives: Free wifi
Negatives: EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS COURSE IS DOWNRIGHT HORSE CRAP
My advice to future students is: FIND ANOTHER UNIVERSITY
Positives: It will help me upgrade my future in IT Sector.
Improve management skills
Get knowledge of latest computer advancement
My advice to future students is: Work hard on studies so that achieve good position in multinational organisations
Positives: I enjoy the teaching staff as they make the course enjoyable
Negatives: I don't like that there's no work experience it's just coursework
My advice to future students is: I would say, get some hands on experience
Positives: The bachelor of social science (counselling) was very informative. At the beginning of the degree I was new to uni and the lectures and teaching staff were very helpful with all the students. They gave a one on one support if you ever needed it. The information the course was helpful in every step of the way learning about the community and counselling. I found every unit very informative and interesting which engaged students. They provided detailed feedback on all your drafts when needed and were available to help with any questions.
Negatives: I don’t have any negative aspects of the course.
My advice to future students is: To learn as much as you can while you are a student and enjoy your time at university. Learn from your lectures and tutors their information is valuable resource when you start in the field. After you are in the workforce you are on your own and putting all your knowledge to practice. Make the connections while at university it helps later on with finding work and learning from others experience helps with your knowledge of the industry. But most of all enjoy it!
Positives: Positives: the university has a few great tutors and lecturers who are currently still teaching. They provide accurate and up to date information while teaching us how to use our skills not only the theory behind it. The University its self is lovely, open and welcoming.
Negatives: Negatives: unfortunately there are too many lecturers that have been out of the field too long and have forgotten to practice what they preach. They tell us the theory of education but not how that looks in a classroom. Our faculty is one of the least funded despite having one of the highest intakes and sadly there is some favouritism and bigotry from certain staff.
My advice to future students is: Be sure this is the right path for you and don't be afraid to change courses. Life isn't a one way street, if it doesn't feel right make a left, try something new, take a break and find something you love.
Positives: It's very interesting, you learn so many different aspects of criminology and justice that you didn't know about before. It helps to expand your view on many different aspects involving criminology and justice. It is not necessarily a majorly difficult course, because if you are actually interested in criminology then you will be interested to read and study the tasks they assign you, which are mostly never boring.
Negatives: Personally I cannot think of many negative aspects to the course. I feel it covers everything necessary to the course. Over time the university of the sunshine coast has constantly changed and improved the newly introduced bachelor of criminology and it has been great. Perhaps more opportunities for placement would be an aspect that could be improved on, however this may have already been done in the years after I completed my studies.
My advice to future students is: If you're not genuinely interested in your course then don't bother. However, assuming you are interested in your course my general advice would be to always attend your tutorials, they help more than you may think. Don't stress about getting every single piece of work done that is handed to you, if you are trying your hardest and doing the most amount of work you can then you will be fine.
Positives: It’s so diverse and at the end of your degree you get to help people in ways no one else can
Negatives: Some of the compulsory subjects drag out a bit and have a heavy workload
My advice to future students is: To just work hard from the start. Don’t just bludge the first parts of semester because it makes it really hard to catch up for future assessment. That being said still have down time and understand balance
