A key positive of this course is that you get a great idea of how the real world looks like and how it functions. There's a diverse range of majors and subjects on offer.

A negative is that it's very theoretical and often they're aren't a lot of recent examples used to demonstrate the material.

A lot of people study general business degrees so getting a job at the end can be difficult.

I'd recommend this course to a friend

I found the course had some good info which allowed me to learn more about business.

There wasn't enough hands on or practical work.

My advice to future students is: Organisation is key, don’t rush into it

There are some pretty easy core subjects, although they are often pretty boring as well. Good breadth of majors to follow.

It's quite textbook/theory heavy, so sometimes it's hard to be engaged with the lecturers. . They could look to try and have some more practical elements to the course to make it more relevant to the real world.

My advice to future students is: Make sure you keep up to date with the readings.

I'm doing an Accounting major

Positives: Accounting knowledge and projects to experience real life work. Experience of teamwork and organisation. Learn how to do quality research.

Negatives: Sometimes an overload of topics. Sometimes the requirements are hard to pass units.

My advice to future students is: Plan a timetable to be organised. Doing full time uni requires hard and smart work. Plan everything beforehand so you can complete assignments on time. Don’t procrastinate.

I did a marketing major.

Great place, the new campus is amazing theres lots to do and visually very pleasing.

However the course itself, its structured with tutors who struggle to deliver intuitive and well developed lessons.

I don't feel intrigued or motivated.

My advice to future students is: definitely do some research and find out what specific part of business you wish to learn about and try do an internship whilst at uni.

Positive aspect is that even if you don’t know what your career goal is you can still study in other areas through the electives.

Negative aspect for me was the challenge of taking control over your choices and studies.

My advice to future students is: To be open about your options.
