I got to know about the Canberra University from my Australian resident relative, who recommended me to opt for my bachelors at the University of Canberra. I had applied to the University through an online application form. I had also applied to several other Australian universities but studying at this university has been my first choice. I scored 92% in my 12th which helped me get through the admission process.
While studying the course I am introduced with the latest theory, practice, and research in a diverse range of areas of psychology including developmental, physiological, social etc. The curriculum focuses on applied psychology and research to be able to choose elective units in sport and performance psychology, health psychology, and forensic psychology.
Completed year 12 in the same city. Was and still am living with, and as I have no work experience and had and still have no income; couldn't afford to move out yet alone move to another city. The University of Canberra was the only university within my city that offered the course I was interested in.
Sort of what is expected from the particular course I chose. I found it helpful that I studied chemistry and biology in high school as the first year of the course is basically covering high school content, so it gives me a bit of a recap while still remaining challenging. I find justice studies quite hard because I have not done any law studies in high school and am not well versed in the political law aspect. But I think with the sources and readings they provide; if used they are very helpful.
I love the environment of the campus. You don't have much pressure from peers about studying hard and the degree is driven by you and not by pressure from your peers. Great facilities on campus, the accommodation is only minutes of walking away.
My course curriculum is tailored to students and has accommodation for all sorts of students. I like the distribution of units across the degree. We only have one studio class per semester which relieves the pressure of students.
Because it was the only university in the city/area that I wanted to study in that offered the particular degree that I want to do! So basically it was due to the limited availability of the degree in the area.
The course curriculum for each unit that I am enrolled in is very accessible and incredibly easy to understand. It contains all requirements for the unit, expectations, and information on the assessment tasks.
It is closest to me, so it is very practical to get to. it is only a 6-minute drive or a 30-minute bus ride + 5-minute walk. it is also where all of my friends go, so I enjoy having people I know all around me.
It is alright, it's almost a little too easy though. we learn basic english and maths, along with childcare, hospitality and more. I found the english to be quite challenging though, it is advanced for what im used to.
