Reviews

The content in this unit is quite interesting and really gives you a better insight and understanding into the lives of the more disadvantaged in this world. Tests however, require a lot of memorisation of facts as you never really know what is going to be examined and there isn’t much application of concepts learned, which I suppose could be a good thing for some people but it makes it seem like you’re not actually learning anything useful for the future when in fact the content truly is important to know as a health professional. Contact hours are also unnecessarily heavy.

Very heavy workload (6 h /week), and we never made it through all the work that was set out for lesson - there were always multiple slides skipped over with a 'you can read this at home.' On top of all that, you've got a big 3-part assignment which includes 6 blogposts (w/ partner), an in-class presentation (w/ partner) and a 2000 word report (flying solo). However, the content is interesting stuff and I was left with more compassion and understanding of the determinants of health.

This unit is a complete and utter waste of time. It is disorganised and you have no idea what to study. There is 6 contact hours a week which is heaps. Everything you learn is useless and the unit is memorising a bunch of random facts and statistics. A unit which is easy to pass but a lot of work to do well(not worth the effort if you ask me)

Content is heavy, but overall the unit is great, even when the load gets very heavy, the lecturers and tutors provide very helpful info for exams etc, so you won't be left clueless.
