    Online education not worth it with Curtin

    I began a bachelor of primary education online through Curtin. The course extremely disappointing. Assignments were poorly explained and teachers were entirely unapproachable when attempting to get more information. References were heavily graded, which is fine, however, every teacher seemed to have a different idea of what APA was, which meant you’d get good marks in one subject regarding referencing, then the next you’d barely pass for doing the same thing.
    Feedback was entirely unhelpful, and when requesting for a remark, I was met with my unit co-ordinator outright refusing to have someone else regrade it, even though I was within my rights to request it.

    Fantastic Uni Recommend

    I’ve been going to Curtin to do my Masters and love it. Staff and teachers are good and, as Kitkat said, the study guides are super helpful. Recommend this uni highly

    Fantastic Online

    I’ve been studying Bachelor of Fine Arts with Open University Australia with Curtin Uni, and have loved every minute of it. I previously studied one year of the degree at University of Tasmania, and hated it. The online forum for UTAS was horrid and old fashioned, Curtin is amazing compared. You communicate with tutors and fellow students via Blackboard and various collaborate sessions, and present work via PowerPoint presentations, notes and so on. I enjoyed it so much, for each unit there is a Study Guide – I printed this out and got it bound the study guides were well written and had a step by step guide for art techniques. I have learnt so much 1000000 times more that I did at UTAs. Obviously you get a few not so good teachers, but all in all most of my teachers were friendly and really helpful. I recommend the online course for anyone it’s brilliant.

    Gym lovers are highly recommended should not join Bentley, Western Anytime Fitness Australia membership as my best friends was kicked by them with just response to their text message “Hello, Hi Merry Christmas” to the fitness consultant.
    Greeting to them are treated as “insulation” In many way, we have found that they kicked out members as usual after they raise up the weekly membership fee. If someone already join in, please do not reply any message to them and they will find any excuses to terminate your membership They are all having conservative thinking and hate to see foreign people pop in the gym

    I studied early childhood education online at Curtin. Their setup is terrible. You’d probably save time just studying on campus because they keep sending you on a wild goose chase every time you have to complete a task. Then when you ask a question they make you trawl through the forums for the answer which can take hours. Recently my wife started a diploma course online through a pretty small institution which was much easier and way more user friendly.
