Totally enjoy studying with UNE. Help is there when you need it. Subjects are easy to follow, we are involved in lectures the same as the on campus students, study at your own pace, if you’re sick, you can take time out. Fast response to any difficulty you may have. They also provide intense schools for external students if they wish to attend campus. I have just 3 subjects until graduation 👩‍🎓 so I’m happy.

Was a good course to do, interesting. Although once completed I was left to fend for myself. Nurses are offered post graduation jobs, criminologists are not. Some teachers did not care, but others were amazing.

The Bachelor of Criminology course was fascinating! The units and course progression guides were well thought out, realistic and had great flexibility. I very much enjoyed the course and the support offered by the university throughout my degree was by far the best I have encountered in my experience with higher education institutions. Although I did not complete the degree, as I chose a different career to chase, I found the university very accommodating, they even helped me enrol into a different degree at a different university. Would definitely recomment this degree and university to anyone considering an external degree.

Definitely better than what I anticipated when I commenced the course. I would recommend this uni to any student wanting to study online. The support from peers and support for helping with your personal circumstances is second to none. I would definitely complete another course with UNE
