I think the course is wonderful and full of amazing knowledge. I do wish Swinburne would offer help with securing placements and it would be great if they offered support with finding a job or guidance with what to expect for interviews and application forms. However, the team at Swinburne are very helpful and always willing to lend support where needed.

The course was very well set out and paced. The balance between theory and practice was just right. The content was delivered in an easy to understand way and support was always available.

Completion dateN/A
Study modeOnline
The online study option is flexible. Blackboard was easier to navigate than Canvas. The assessments and content are relevant to the industry but should be slightly more practical in terms of lesson plans vs theoretical essays. The staff at Swinburne Online are communicative and fast-working, and the enrolment process is very easy. The eLAs are not always highly organised or well-educated on the topic they are tutoring/assessing.
