Studying at UniSA

Choosing to study at UniSA was one of the best decisions I have ever made. One of the best parts of being in UniSA Business School is that I am guided by my study plan to choose subjects for each semester, decide which class times I would like to attend and enroll accordingly. My flexible timetable allowed me to take on casual jobs and participate in events organised by UniSA’s clubs and societies. It was helpful to know that if I couldn’t attend a lecture, I could watch the recordings. Tutorials and workshop classes are also structured to focus on students’ involvement and contribution. Outside class, there’s plenty of help to ensure students get enough support to complete their courses successfully. Apart from studies, UniSA Business School organises various events and programmes to ensure the students are given enough opportunities to develop holistically. Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience at UniSA.

Overall experience at UniSA

I am a final year student, studying Bachelor of Business (Tourism and Event Management) at UniSA.
In the past 2 years, UniSA has been providing me so many exciting opportunities to volunteer at social and academic events. This allows me to obtain a solid foundation of knowledge and hands-on experience in the fields of marketing and event management. I found that I have became a lot more confident by getting involved in extracurricular activities that UniSA offers.
The teaching team at UniSA are amazing. They are not only experts in their fields but also very approachable and willing to assist me whenever I need them. The university always takes in consideration of students’ feedback and try to implement new teaching methods to accommodate different learning styles. UniSA also have the great student services that has provided me so much support with my personal growth and career development.

Career Oriented and Focuses on Practical work

I'm a final semester student, pursuing Masters in Data Science. I found UniSA as a very career oriented university. The assignments are based more on practical work rather than theoretical. Also, they carry more weight than the exam itself. In this way, I got to learn more by doing plenty of assignments throughout the semesters and never got stressed out about the exam. Moreover, the capstone professional project course in my degree enabled me to gain industry experience right before I graduate. The university also has a dedicated job portal for students called "UniSA Career Hub". I found my internship through this portal and there is plenty of volunteering, casual, part-time, and full-time job opportunities advertised which is good for both domestic and international students looking for work. Lastly, Adelaide itself is a very affordable place to be in, so I think I made the right decision to come here for Masters.

My review of UniSA

I am a final year of my Bachelor of IT (Software Development) degree at this University. I've really enjoyed my experience here and the uni has great resources to engage student learning. 

The IT faculty and teaching methodologies are very good with heavy focus on practical assignments.
For example, most of the programming assignments are quite fun as they are about building games and user interfaces. I feel that these assignments are a better way to learn a computer technology, as we are putting the theory learnt into practice.
Mawson Lakes campus is peaceful and provides a great study environment: it has the sports, gym and student lounge on campus that can be accessed on weekends. I spend a lot of my time on campus due to the great facilities that are here.
I have been able to get a summer internship through the Careerhub, one of the many great students services that UniSA has to offer.
Overall, I enjoy the IT program here and would recommend it to a future student.

EXPERIENCE AT UniSA

It is an average university, not so much what I thought it would be when coming from Pakistan. The study experience is overall average and not so much what they potrayed in the picture when their representatives come for seminars and exhibition to our country.

LIFE EXPERIANCE IN ADELAIDE

Well i think that getting education abroad is itself a learning process. I myself am satisfied with the education provided by my university. A new student will obviously take time to adjust in new environment and new living life style. In start it is very confusing but as time passes, a new student adjusts and than he feels quite relaxed and comfortable with the new system.
