    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    Will we ever have our fourteen week semesters back once they see how much stuff is left out of the syllabus in order to accomodate for the many breaks in the semester like all the public holidays?

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    At least it sounds much better than Macquarie University because honestly, there's not student life and what's supposed to be a quadrangle isn't one or at least doesn't look the teensy weensiest bit like one.

    - FCE admin people. There inability to read is amazing. Sigh.
    - The stairs, too many stairs.
    - Lecturers who seem to have a stick up there ass (i.e. ego)
    UNSW - Finished B Eng (Software) / B Com (Finance)
    In computing, turning the obvious into the useful is a living definition of the word "frustration".

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    I'm thinking whether to do my LL.M in UNSW or in USYD. Both are crap compared to uni in Europe, but i want to get LL.M done as quickly as possible.

    LL.M (Master in Law)

    Meanwhile, in Universiteit van Amsterdam, i only go to uni twice a week now. My European Union Law only runs half a semester which means that the 2nd half are for major thesis/essay. So within those two days i have in uni, i can start planning for 2-day trips around Europe. I am already planning to go to Belgium and Germany for parties.

    Thumbs down Re: What you hate about UNSW

    My main issues with transport I guess.

    How about:

    -- How hard it is to find a parking spot
    -- The fact that busses going to UNSW only leave from central and no nearby stations
    -- After a certain time, there are no busses going on High St from Central
    -- How far the uni is from anything
    -- Often terrible microphones in lectures where you can't hear shit
    -- the busses to Central from upper campus (High st) are non-existant unless its after 3pm or so

    I'm just so sick of having to walk all the way from upper campus to lower campus for a bus to central because they can't provide enough busses from high st to the city!

    Where do people get the idea that the express buses are the only buses to UNSW? The normal buses come just as often, take maybe 3 mins longer and are potentially 10x more reliable.

    EDIT: If you're at upper campus take the 3 min walk to Randwick and get a 37x bus to the city if there are no express buses yet.

    Ah 3 minutes longer my ass. More like 10 min longer... They take a longer route, plus they stop to pick up passengers way too frequently.

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    Who are you trying to kid me here? I have been to UNSW long enough to know about the state of UNSW. And you want me to discuss something mentioned in this thread? About Asians, how bloody long the stairs are or how cheap university is in over-enrolling students in a lecture hall?

    Take a good look by going on exchange. I also did a conference in Oxford university as well and European uni are in a far better condition compared to UNSW. 30 students are maximum enrolement per class, not 500 and we have instructors as tutors who are competant, not some cheap as master student who just got hired so he can pay off his uni fee.

    The fact that LL.M is 16,000 dollars even with government subsidy. I can get better recognised masters which is just a quarter of that fee and far better education with lower student/teacher ratio.

    UNSW has gotten worse and worse every year. Classes cancelled, and they build larger lecture halls to fit more students in per instructor. It's a corporatised entity to lure students in then make it as cost-effective as possible without improving the quality of tertiary education.

    Why do i want to part of that rat-race in followed this institution who thinks that the degree printing press is more important than what is taught beyond a textbook?

    There, that's what i 'hate about UNSW'.

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    lol when i was at UNSW for a lecture seminar, packed Asians.

    Lol funny thing is, i tried to count the amount of Asians in the lecture theatre. Sadly i kept losing my tally, too many of them.

    Re: What you hate about UNSW

    I got a tip for next time
    Instead, try count the number of non-asians instead of asians It's harder to lose count and if your lecture has under 500 people you can count them on your fingers :rofl:
