This course is ran like an online degree. They don't even provide proper lectures. Instead they upload these 10-15 minute "lecture pods" online where they only cover the most basic information. You can't replace a 2hr lecture with a 10 minute online video. If I wanted to atcg a video about a topic I rather go to YouTube where it's HECS free! Secondly the tutors that I've had can't even be bothered teach. They just put up questions and answers, no explanations to complicated questions unless you pester them. The only positive thing is that if you have no work commitments then I guess you could just sit home and teach yourself everything and take your time doing it. I highly doubt that there are many like that unfortunately. Overall If anyone wants to do a business degree look elsewhere, especially if you're an international student who has to pay upfront.

Best undergrad accounting degree in my opinion. Very few schools are qualified to do a bachelor in straight accounting, and Western Sydney is the only public uni that also allows you to pick up majors (UTS does not allow majors). I am able to study twice the accounting units as a commerce/business degree majoring in accounting, whilst studying financial planning and taxation which directly qualified you for further courses, whether it be CA, CPA, Tax Institute courses or risk management accreditation. By not being forced into a lot of irrelevant HR/business management/ethics units you have a much better understanding of accounting.
