The lecturers were fantastic on this course. Super approachable, knowledgeable and helpful in times of need. Special thanks to Dr Mark Hartl for helping each and every student when they were struggling.View more
I like that my program was strong based on the curriculum. The student life wasn’t so good because of Covid, I barely got to meet people from my course. The lecturers gave an excellent teaching service, although some struggled to teach the core part of the courses online. The online student services were quite good and easy for students to navigate to online classes but although, a lot of things found this to be challenging. I feel like lecturers should employ more techniques in their online teaching skills, especially when teaching at an international university. Lecturers should be more clear about what they want in their coursework as students found it hard to obtain support from fellow colleagues and lecturers themselves. More measures should be set in helping freshers to integrate and be familiar with the online system. Things should be taken slowly for the first two weeks until students are settled and prepared for the semester.View more
The program is structured in a way that it offers what you need, materials and time to add to your knowledge. There is a one on one interaction with the lecturers that prove productive when it comes to Intel gathering and improving oneself.View more

The group study assignments for 4 courses were very good to study in a group and get to know each other. The courses taught by prof were of high quality and the assessment methods were very relevant to the course structure.View more
Highly recommend Campus as it is a tranquil place, unfortunately, a negative experience with learning on the course as there is no support or teaching, and feel it has been a complete waste of my time and money.
Now May have a negative impact on my future prospects
