USQ is horrible

USQ is marred by poor staff and poor management.
The courses are constantly dropped to what they call "workshop" mode which means you don't get lectures or tutorials and have to study online only without the lectures.

Communication is very poor with staff just ignoring emails for extended periods. Stud read full review

USQ is marred by poor staff and poor management. The courses are constantly dropped to what they call "workshop" mode which means you don't get lectures or tutorials and have to study online only without the lectures. Communication is very poor with staff just ignoring emails for extended periods. Study books are decades old and in many cases no longer relevant ie using analogue multimeters etc. They have a 2 hurdle system where exams are worth 70% of your grade, so one bad exam and you fail the course. Go elsewhere and save yourself the struggle. show less
