Course was ok but probably a waste of time. Would probably not recommend unless you want to do further study.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and got a great insight into what the honours and masters in Psych courses would looke like. I work in disability, the content of the course was relevant, especially with my major in disability rehabilitation and education. The lecturers were extremely helpful and contactable. Highly recommned the Bach of Behavioural Science at Flinders University

Was good and interesting. The topic had both theory and how that applies in real world situations. The materials were also good and useful.

While I didn’t continue studying psychology and didn’t pursue it as a career, I enjoyed the course and found my lectures and tutes very interesting. I feel that without the degree I would have missed out on a lot of important insights and the ability to critically assess and make up my own mind about a range of issues. It also gave me good grounding for my current job in statistics where I have been working since I graduated.

The course provide good knowledge of basic and fundamental Psychology as a first major which I believe is useful for any job settings. It also provide a good grasp for second major student have chosen from their interests such as legal study. criminology and so on. Candidate/student need should have a clear goal of where would you like to be in the future to make the most of your learning experience.

Would have greatly benefited from some practical work and assessments. The flexibility of the course was good, some of the subjects I studied taught me a lot and I use that knowledge in my role today.

Great institution to study at. Gave me the skills, experience, confidence, and knowledge which allowed me to continue as a student at Flinders University with my Masters Degree.

I think it would’ve been more beneficial for some practical work so you know what’s involved with the work. It also would’ve been nice to get a better guide on what you can do. Content of degree was good, and it was interesting to learn. Not sure where it would be applied, but nevertheless interesting.

I really enjoyed my time at Flinders, I think that the school of psychology had a strong community vibe. The content was useful and expected of the degree - but I hoped for more practical work in terms of working with people.

I’ve only been studying for less than a year, however so far there’s been help and support along the way. The course is outlined and you know what’s expected of you, with the work being hard/ish, just have to try hard and study.
