Read Western Sydney University - WSU Reviews

This course provides the student an excellent insight into the Health Science field. It is very broad and provides opportunities to study elective disciplines based on your career goals. Course advisors are diverse in terms of their own specialisations and therefore, very helpful whatever your query.

The only negative aspect I can think of is the recent introduction of an e-Portfolio assessment that was worth quite a large percentage of marks that was not very well planned. Information given to students was vague and omitted a lot of the marking criteria - it couldn’t even be found on the marking rubric which made it difficult for students to achieve the results they desired.

My advice to future students is: Contact your tutors about all assessment marking criteria’s and any other questions you may have. Take advantage of the materials offered to you in terms of assessment examples. Build rapport with the guest speakers and keep in contact with them - you may be able to volunteer your time in their workplace which will broaden your employment prospects.

Positives: Practical based assessments.

Negatives: Units that I don't think are necessary or applied in the career path

My advice to future students is: Do a degree or course you enjoy. Expose yourself to experiences in the career you are currently studying.

Positives: Sydney City campus offer trimesters allowing for fast track completion of the course. Smaller classes allow for tutors to focus on each individual more.

Negatives: Trimesters although allow for fast track completion, have shorter breaks in between sessions which can sometimes become overwhelming especially for new students.

My advice to future students is: To complete a full trimester before making the decision of wether the fast track option and the study load would be suitable for them.
