I searched on google and reviewed my colleges and universities. Thereby I collided with VU and deep inside the website. When I saw this I was amazed and I choose it. The fee was suitable and the teachers' faculty members all were very friendly. My consultancy also suggested choosing this uni due to its globally recognized degree as well as the degree value in the international market. So this made me attracted to my uni.
Yes, IELTS 7.5. I took BC as my main one to examine my IELTS program. I paid a fee and gave an exam on the 5th of January 2019. It was on Saturday and I went to give the exam. It was a great giving exam and I came up to meet with many friends giving a similar exam.it ran for about 3 hours and I completed. Fortunately, I was able to secure well.
Back in my home country, we also have Victoria University in Sunway College which provided the students with 5-star facilities. I have been doing a twinning program with Victoria University in Australia. I have completed IGCSE in 2014 and completed a Diploma in Events Management in 2017. I have also received an Outstanding Performance certificate upon completion of my Diploma.
I find that our standards of teaching and learning could be improved. As a student, we would like to build a teacher-student relationship to help us cope and learn better. We find that it is helpful that they provide a sense of guidance for us, students, to follow.
Because it offers the best possibilities within the program I chose and it really supports individuality and focuses on each student's needs. Also, I really liked their new delivery concept, the block mode.
I really like it and it is focusing on all the things you need to know/be aware of when working in the profession. So far I really enjoy it and everything I learn is important for my ongoing learning journey.
The reason I decided to opt for this university is that I didn't get great exam marks at the end of year twelve/high school and it was the only University that I got an offer to go to, so that?s why I chose it.
The block model isn't great. There is a whole lot too much content that you can't get finished in the very little time (4 weeks) that you get offered in the block model. I think some subjects, in particular, is asking too much of students.
I chose this particular college for me as I felt that this college was giving me everything I wanted and more. The courses are exquisite and the uni really gives an insight to everything that they have to offer on the open days. The campus itself is beautiful and the people are wonderful and it's better then what it seemed.
My opinion on the course curriculum is that on the open days and course information slides do not fabricate anything. It is all as it seems and better, the information and work given to me don't exceed any expectations.
