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.
