CourseGraduate Certificate of Australian Migration Law and Practice
Completion date2016
Study modeOnline
The VU offered the course via online and it was good for me to study and work at same time. Positive: I could access previous tuts and discussion board anytime so it was very flexible to complete the course. Negative: Very expensive course and the uni didn't provide any invigilation or invigilator for WA students. I had to organise and paid for them. Also they didn't really offer work experiance or opportunity after the course.

Great theory tutorials, need improvement in more practical exercises . Some help to find a job would be great. The effort from some teachers to give us a great lecture was the best from the course.

CourseGraduate Certificate of Australian Immigration Law and Practice

The course itself was ok. Good for knowledge content. But the support was not good at all. And I am being kind in saying that. You had only access to phone conversations if you failed a exam paper or assignment. This is what I was told. I was not given an opportunity to review my exam papers at all. I passed the course and graduated but I did not meet the licence requirement because the MARA requirements were very strict. This was not the issue. I can understand why. But I failed one part of an exam and they did not let me see any of my papers that i failed. So I didnt know what I was doing wrong. So the support and help in that sense was terrible. Because you could not improve or know what to improve on. As you could only rely on a phone conversation. The resit was way to long. I had to wait six months to resit one exam that I failed twice because I was told it was at the end of the semester that I had to wait and resit some of the exams. I failed it again and missed out on my licence opportunity. Alot of that was due to me not knowing where and what I was doing wrong because very little support. The acadmic and coordinator support was very bad when it came to review of exams or progress. The course and teaching was ok. I am sorry but this is how I feel because it cost me an opportunity to practice as a migration agent at the time because they were changing the course after that. Alot of that was to due too very little support.

Lecturers are very knowledgeable and caring. Most course work relies very heavily on reading and writing essays rather than any practical component.
