Positives: The positive aspects of the course is how interesting the content is, and the good nature of the tutors and lecturers in explaining it and allowing us to understand it, in general uni life it is positive that we are given the opportunity to take our learning into our own hands and discover what works best for us to get the most out of the course

Negatives: The negative aspects of the course is that it is a lot of work, you need to be constantly on top of what you are doing in every course which can be challenging when trying to balance a work and social life on top of uni

My advice to future students is: The advice I would give to future students is to get into a good routine and to not overload yourself with commitments outside of uni such as a part time or casual jobs, I also advise them to be organised and to continuously revise their work as well as to ask as many questions as you need to so that youre certain you understand the content being provided to you

The course provides hands-on experience from the first year and equips you with the skills needed to work as a nurse. You get the opportunity to work in a hospital alongside doctors and other, qualified nurses and have the opportunity to interact with real life patients.

My advice to future students is: This course requires practical and theoretical study and is a great opportunity to be able to help others.

Positives: Lots of performance opportunities. There are opportunities to sub-major in various aspects of music, such as musicology, performance, composition and sound technology. The facilities are industry standard.

Negatives: UWS Music does not have the reputation of the Con or UNSW. There could be more opportunities to link closely to the Master of Teaching.

My advice to future students is: Use your electives to learn from subjects outside of music. Use the course to make contacts with other musicians.

Positives: the positive aspects of my course are the friendships i have formed with others, the obtainment of new information and concepts that i am interested in and with that information my knowledge has been widened

Negatives: that most of it is online and there’s not as much teacher-student interaction

My advice to future students is: i would tell them to pick a course that they feel passionate about because there would be nothing worse than putting in the hard yards for something they don’t like. also, don’t be too hard on yourself, uni is a huge change in comparison to high school
