It was closest to where I live with my family. And we moved here specifically so that myself and my siblings could complete our tertiary education there. Both my sisters had been there before and I am looking forward to completing my degree.
I don't really know what the course curriculum is. It might just be the name; all my courses are run quite well. I'm not sure what you want for this question. It doesn't make much sense to me at all.
I have chosen the University of Newcastle, Callaghan campus to gain new experience, male global network, study the course of my interest. I applied for this university to broaden my horizon, gain personal growth and become a chartered engineer.
I like the course structure. We have industrial site visits and applications which we can relate to real-world problems. Also, I have an opportunity to take part in different engineering communities and clubs at the university.
I opted for this college as it has a smaller cohort than other universities in NSW. There is less competition to gain entry with a lower ATAR required. Located up the coast, it has more opportunities to partner with professional sport clubs whereas Sydney universities are competing with others to participate in placement and sporting opportunities.
The course curriculum is great. There is a lot of involvement and support through the tutors and mentors at the university. You can choose some majors and various alternatives in the program.
Every since my high school, I had the aspirations to pursue my graduation in a reputed foreign university. I choose University of Newcastle because of its ideal location, which is perfect for work life balance. Due to Newcastle being near Sydney, that allows me to be close knit to my extended family living in Sydney and catch up on weekends. carried a strong passion towards accounting & finance, and I can clearly comprehend the importance of my field of study for some global player to tap the global market or economy.
Currently, I'm in my 2nd year of the course. The best thing about the faculty of business and law have some great professors and lecture staffs. Usually, most of the course's lectures are recorded and there is an allocated time for workshops, where students can discuss and solve problem questions on the particular topic. This could be great for students to revise the learning and understand the topic with real life case studies with some great teaching staffs.
Good program, relatively close to home. I only got into two options for medicine, one of which was Adelaide which is a plane trip away for me. Newcastle (while it is 5 hours away) was closer and provided a city close to that of my hometown (Canberra). The program is also highly regarded, I think it's the 3rd best program in Australia and I like the learning structure.
Very good, very helpful. It can be slightly unprepared particularly with timetabling issues. Good supportive staff, mostly doctors so they know what we are going through.
Location- close to home and I can't afford to live out of home, the quality of education is high, and most courses have high employment rates after graduation. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the facilities are of high quality.
Very happy with the curriculum- it has a wide range of topics and covers all needed knowledge bases. There is a good amount of practical engagement included in the course curriculum. There are sometimes perhaps too many courses expected to be completed within one semester, but they do have part-time options too.
It's the cheapest college of all the offers I got. This also allows me to graduate from my degree in the shortest possible time. The teaching here is great and I'm getting a lot of clinical exposure.
The curriculum is pretty new as I'm in the first cohort to enroll in this program. However, teaching has been great so far. I feel that sometimes it's overwhelming to see so much workload but it's manageable.
The reason that I have chosen this college would be because I applied to other schools but was not accepted and when I applied in Australia I was accepted so I chose to go because I would like to become a pharmacist no matter how far I have to go.
Currently, I am only in my first semester but from what I have seen so far the curriculum looks like it is interesting and it seems like it is exactly all the information that I would need in order to be a pharmacist in the future.
It was the local/nearby campus which allowed me to live at home (with parents) whilst studying to save money as accommodation options were very expensive. It also offered the course I was interested in completing and my year advisor at school recommended the local university to all students.
I think the uni should have sent us on practical in a school setting earlier - we did not teach until we had been at uni for 2 years. The first year subjects were not particularly useful - they focused on each of the key learning areas - since having just completed high school I was still familiar with most of these topics. They also taught things like advanced maths so we could feel what it's like to learn maths instead of teaching us what we need to teach and ways to teach it.
It was the most local, and one of only 3 that would accept my high school equivalent for a law course. Of the three available, it was the only one that had a practical component to the degree rather than an emphasis on academic courses.
It does what it needs to do to comply with professional standards. Our electives are a bit too limited as the focus has shifted towards international experiences. The increase in compressed courses is probably beneficial for those trying to finish quickly but has similarly limited semester directed courses
