Student review
The course is great, however the quality of the education staff is very high. Compared to murdoch university this university has higher standards. The only units that need to be reviewed are ethics and politics. They are good but the teaching approach is too general and not specific to industry standards. Ethics and politics had such a general approach I sometimes felt it was too irrelevant to the course but I had to do the units as they were core units when they should have been electives with how they were designed. If the course continues these two units should be more Youth industry specified for example how will it impact Youth workers in everyday employment life.
