The course was incredibly interesting and shaped my world view in a way I would never have considered. We learned about international politics from a vast number of angles and it taught me to be more considerate of the world I am in and how I want to exist in it. There were some practical elements that were very useful, such as learning to write policy proposals and reports.

CourseBachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Law
Completion date2013
Study modeOn-campus
The course was good but did not give enough practical experience or assistance with finding a job out of university. The legal industry is cut throat and unless you were able to secure clerkships at top firms you had minimal hope finding a graduate position. The course overall though was a positive experience but a lot of theory and not enough practical work.
