I found the course useful as it complemented my current role at the time. People do not think of Deakin as one of the top unis, but courework for this degree is on par with other Uni offerings. Doing a master's is really up to the individual, if you do the work your knowledge will increase. This is the primary goal of studying.

fantastic course clearly outlines do's and don'ts of the selling and advice realms from a legal stand point while also clearly outlining and providing selling techniques to increase sales. what I really loved about the course was that it didn't just go through what you can and can't do, it went through the reasons why.

It was well run and the tutorials and lectures were relevant and current. The course material was easy to digest and access to the online portal for progress and interaction with staff was excellent.

I started the course with Deakin at least 20 years ago, however I did not complete it. I had just completed a Diploma in Financial Markets with the Securities Institute of Australia, and luckily a couple of the subjects overlapped. I studied it by distance education, I think all the information arrived in the post. I found it quite challenging, probably that is why I did not complete it, which is a pity as it would have been a good qualification to have got.

Overall, it was a good experience. Slightly better faculty would be a plus point. Otherwise I was satisfied with the course and specially the intersnship program for International students was a great help to find the job.
