Student review
The course was well rounded, with some brilliant and very knowledge staff and lecturers. Support was provided if students were going through a difficult time . I however ended up staying back for 6 months as I was provided with the wrong advice regarding one of my units. There were a few other interests I had around the university itself , mainly around extra curricular events/opportunities however it was very difficult to get ifnroamtion from my course advisor . The course itself though had some great aspects that are transferable to numerous employment (in particular knowledge on current health concerns , education models , behaviour models and statistic units).
