It was good to study at the university of New England. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and class sizes may be smaller than some universities which allows a more personal experience. Studying on campus and living in colleges are a great way to meet new people and enhance the university experience.

Content of course is quite good and the assessment schedule is quite flexible allowing you to work and study. Limited practical work in the course, but it is designed for those already working in the industry. Overall i would recommend the course.

It was great to have the opportunity to study online which helped to balance life and studies. Although staff were helpful in the first year of the course, the second year of the course was a lot more independent.

Quality course and delivery. Being able to study and view lectures online makes the work/study quality balance quite good.

Some subjects were amazing and very interesting, while others not so. You couldn't pick a clear pathway towards one specific branch of psychology and so ended up completing units you did not wish to just to make the need credit point limit.
