Great academics and alumni network. My grandfather attended ND, so my family has always been a fan of the Irish. I love the culture here, and it really does feel like a 'Notre Dame family'. There's no Greek life, so social life isn't dictated by an exclusionary power source.
There are many general education classes, which can be annoying, but I know they just changed the curriculum for incoming freshmen. However, I do feel as if I am getting a wide variety of quality education.
I was attracted to the prestige of the undergraduate business program and for the university as a whole. I also really liked the Catholic aspect and the focus on community. I visited beforehand through a Catholic summer camp type of program, an admired student weekend, and a pre-college study abroad program so I was familiar with its offerings too.
The course curriculum has a lot of requirements which I didn't realize going into it. We have to take 2 philosophy courses, 2 theology courses, history, writing, 2 math courses, 2 science courses, fine arts or literature class for university requirements. Then there are college-specific requirements. I actually like most of the classes I've taken for university requirements because they're more humanities/writing so I feel it's easier to do well. In terms of business requirements, it?s been more difficult to do well.
Great reputation for nursing. When I've spoken to current nurses, they've always had glowing reports about Notre Dame clinical practice students and I want to be one of them. The university boasts high post-grad employment rates as well, which was also a major factor in opting for UND.
The course curriculum is very relevant to the nursing industry. It teaches not just the basics of nursing but also different ways of viewing the nursing practice I.e. what care sociology says patients require. The different perspectives are great.
Most prac offer compared to other universities. Catholic and has great lectures and tutors. It also has a great location in Sydney city. Simple to travel to and friendly students to work on group assessments.
Great subjects although changes during the degree are a bit disruptive. Good progress of units from one year to the next and great connections are made between courses over the semester and during the entire degree.
Personal interaction and teaching to benefit my studies. I also started out with no friends so I had to go out of my comfort zone to meet so many new people. This university has allowed me to develop my confidence, interaction with others and my academic skills.
Some of the core courses are not my favorite but I'm glad I have given them a go and gone outside my comfort zone. There were a few courses I did not enjoy and don't like doing so I struggled. But the curriculum is good overall.
