Internationally minded with lots of good resources for assistance. Broad options to choose from as well and lectures are engaging.

However, knowing what books you need and how to choose units isn’t made clear during enrolment

My advice to future students is: Be open minded, try new things and don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone

Having done a study abroad in the US recently, I can notice the marked difference in the education quality between UWA and UPenn. The commerce course here is quite shallow with very little emphasis on practical case study material or investigate research into actual businesses/economies. The lectures are not very stimulating nor engaging. If given the choice, I would not enrol in this course at UWA, but rather choose to pursue commerce at a stronger university, such as over east or in the US.

My advice to future students is: If given the choice, I would not enrol in this course at UWA, but rather choose to pursue commerce at a stronger university, such as over east or in the US. However, if you're simply doing the course to acquire a bachelors degree and not too passionate about commerce or career prospects, then the course at UWA is adequate.

Heaps of assistance from staff both in person and online, intriguing course material that relates to real life practices.

The positives is that there are 200 others in the same course just as willing and keen to be involved in uni along side you. Generally the uni schedule is well planned and the load isn't stressful if you are motivated to study. Negatives include not articulate lecturers and ENSC1001 wasn't designed thoroughly enough to prepare us for the future.

My advice to future students is: Take advantage of all your resources and especially get involved with all your classes and faculty events

UWA is extremely disorganised when it comes to helping students out. Sure, they have great staff and teachers who really know their stuff, but they really don't have good organisation.

My advice to future students is: Don't go to UWA

Positives:
The networking and people you meet along the way to be able to help you later on in life and with your career. There was as much or as little extra curricular activities to further ones studies as well.

Negatives:
If you aren't on campus and using the facilities all the time it as easy to fall out of the loop and not feel so connected with your cohort. I didn't feel that i was fully equipped at the end of my degree to know how to enter the workforce.

Advice for future students:
Find out as soon as possible how best to utilise the possible pathways into a career you would like through the university and and work experience programs etc.

I'm doing a Law / Psychology double major.

The best aspects of the course include fantastic lecturers and tutors and the ability to listen to lectures online when you can’t attend in-person. The worst factor regarding my course is that even those I have studied Law and Psychology, I will graduate only with a ‘Bachelor of Arts’, commonly known as ‘Bugger All’. This is not the same at other Universities, where your degree actually reflects what you studied. I feel that this means I will look less qualified compared to other candidates when applying for jobs in the future.

My advice to future students is: Go to see a careers advisor within the first two years of your course, whether this be an advisor based on campus or elsewhere. They can give you advice as to what kinda of jobs your qualifications will suit. It is a good idea to know what your options are from the beginning, in case you decide not to work/practice in your specific area of study.
