Student review
The course coordinator health the cohort together. Renee was amazing. The course itself is very outdated. Other universities have a better structure. This makes it difficult for RMIT students to compete for jobs.

Student review
Great course, however the job prospects were not explained at the beginning. Hence a lot of students finishing and not able to get job at the end of internships.
