Horrible experience

Overall
This uni is horrible. People don't work after hours and it's so hard to get in contact with anyone. Anyone who you talk to will give conflicting answers and send to on a goose chase for your answer.
The uni has horrible wifi even though it is on Eduroam 
The accomodations such as Mary White college are also terrible and the staff there don't really care for your wellbeing. 
This is the same with university staff. They are very incompetent at their job and don't care for other's wellbeing. I don't feel looked after at this university. 
My course is very disorganised, for example it was very difficult getting placements  in first year as our placement coordinator (Suzanne Riley) had no sympathy and made no accomodation for new students who didn't have a car. Some had to go to Tamworth to do their placements because of her incompetence, when all placements should've been done in Armidale. 
Armidale itself isn't a great place either, a lot of racism and the area isn't really safe.

Pros
A lot of online courses, perhaps you'll have better luck online than on campus

Personal recommendation
Avoid this university - it is unprofessional and the degrees are completely worthless. You could learn more at home on the internet.

Overall
I completed Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying) at UNE from 2017-2018. It was an online course with some mandatory face-to-face components. My experience was great. The online units/modules were easy to navigate. I could listen to lectures in my own time and at my own pace. Assessments were reasonable and not too difficult. Readings weren't excessive. Lecturers were generally supportive. I would get emails from the Uni checking in from time to time. Enrolment was simple. UNE was the only uni that did not have strict entry requirements. Overall, I am very happy I chose UNE over ACAP, WSU and ACU. I have recommended this Uni to my postgraduate friends who are already working full time and looking for flexibility. Highly recommend UNE! They now offer bespoke courses which is impressive

This is not a real university. You can complete all the academic requirements and still be waiting (for 170 days and counting) for them to "place" you for the professional experience component of your degree. The Office of Professional Learning is pathetically incompetent. My two year degree is heading towards being a three year degree through no fault of my own.

Don't waste your money. The place is like an online diploma mill except you don't get a diploma at the end of it!

ABOUT
The University of New England was the first Australian university outside a capital city. With roots extending back to the 1920s, UNE has a well-earned reputation as one of Australia's great teaching, training and research universities. Its graduates consistently rate their overall experience at UNE highly, a reflection of the University's commitment to make learning both relevant and fun.
