The course itself had a great deal of content that is relevant to the working force. The only criticism I would have is the lack of practical experience you get. I have heard since completing my degree that they have added more of that component.
Response from Deakin University

Not enough practical learning. Following completing the 4 year degree I am unable to find work in any related field as the course did not provide any practical experience. I don't feel that I was actually taught a skill that is desired by employers or useful.
Response from Deakin University

Deakin is fabulous at providing online content and use best practice to ensure great delivery. Work load was unexpected though, very hard to study part time as a working mother.
