overall course was good although didnt like the fact that i had to take majority of my units as intensives due to the lack of internal students, felt cheated out financially when i was paying for lectures and weekly study yet was only able to complete the course online and was paying for internal.

It was an overall good course, the degree was updated after I finished which was annoying as it offered 4 new majors. Lots of field work and hands on learning. First year was pretty rough though compared to later years.

Student review
Exceptional course - my specific stream is no longer available (Sustainable Ecosystems - Terrestrial) but UNE is a terrific place to study. Lecturers are very knowledgeable and understanding of overlapping deadlines from multiple Residential schools. Would recommend to anyone.
