Tutors are great, helpful and approachable however I wish there were less assignments and instead more weight on two large pieces of assessment.

The study environment is quite good, such as tutorials and PASS, which help students to review those key contents. So does the student service, where I can easily find someone for help.

The university had an abundance of helpful workshops and real life opportunities to engage in outside of our studies, to further leverage our desired career path. I always felt supported, and engaged. Overall, a wonderful experience.
