      I am studying this course online currently and have just completed the first few units full time. I thought the unit material had good coverage and the teaching staff have been approachable and friendly. I had some difficulties with the way the course has been taught at times, particularly needing more support with learning some difficult concepts and the more technical side of things. The units can be full on at times and although online they follow the standard due dates and university calendar. Due to this it wasn’t as flexible as I had expected it to be. The lectures are presented live and you can chat at the same time in a virtual classroom setting, just be aware of the difference in time zones if you are not located in the Gold Coast. The lectures are also recorded if you do miss them, which is useful. It is difficult to get a grasp on some concepts, especially being a very technical course and not having the same level of support you might have in an on campus setting, although staff and tutors can be contacted through email or by phone. I thought that the one lecture session a week wasn’t quite enough for most of the units, especially when students on campus where also receiving workshops/tutorials plus the same lectures. Overall the course has good coverage of topics and offers 3 separate majors that you can choose from. Added support for online students would be a great addition though.
