Student review
The training was confusing with a lack of consistency between lecture notes, online subject information and the lecturers themselves. Then there was no consistency between marking with results being decided on the markers personal opinion which was difficult when one exam was marked by multiple people resulting in irregular results where high performing students would receive below average results and low performing students receiving high distinctions. High achieving students GPA's were drastically reduced by these personal opinions of students from the markers. Students would graduate just for presenting to most lectures over the period of study and would receive a pass on exams over the year, therefore having a high graduation rate. Unfortunately, this also fills our workforce with unqualified, inexperienced employees making major life decisions for people. Your knowledge and experience at the end of your studies is based solely on the effort you put into your studies. This course has been described as a "Mickey Mouse" course by many qualified professionals and sadly I need to agree, as I do not feel proud of telling my colleagues or other professionals where I studied.
