Student review
While the coursework was relevant I did find it difficult to get feedback on assignment drafts. Communication was sporadic and often feedback was received AFTER a due date had passed. I have chosen to study post-grad elsewhere due to the lack of support for external students.

As a mature age student I found that their new Cairns Campus an idyllic place to study. Surrounded by rain-forest and everything brand new, made this a fantastic place to begin my studies. On opening in 1995, I was one of only 300 students. Lecturers and staff all new me by name. At the age of 40 the idea of obtaining a university degree was a dream. Since graduating, my degree has enabled me to teach English in over 7 countries around the world.

The course is fantastic if you want to have a career as a diplomat, working with government agencies or projects. Study the course has given me the opportunity to understand how different government systems work, internationally and domestically. Also the involvement of countries in the international arena, in both trade and security. The lecturers are experienced in political backgrounds and well versed with the contents of the subjects that they teach so you will be fascinated every week to know more.
