This subject is a light and easy introduction to Australian politics. If you regularly watch the news/read newspapers (online, obviously, for our generation), you probably won't learn a whole lot. Even those who confine their media consumption to Buzzfeed and Junkee will likely feel that this is a refresher course. However, the assessment structure is well set up to introduce you to uni life and academic writing. I think it's worth a shot if you want to be sure your foundation of knowledge is rock solid or if you just want an good mark pretty easily.

Quite a decent introduction to the history and systems of politics in Australia. Not too complex or difficult, a couple of good guest lecturers. When I did it the lectures were not recorded, but this made for quite interactive lectures.

Comprehensive introduction to the political system. It provides an overview of the political ideologies and institutions that underpin the Australian system. The political exercise is a pretty interesting experience and it's well worth being a representative. The first essay is a based on the exercise so make sure you are making notes about what's happening in it.

Surprisingly engaging introduction to politics in Australia. Dr Megarry is an amazing lecturer who clearly knows her content. Going into this I expected it to be a bit of a dry summary of the Australian political system. While this subject does cover that, It does so in a way that is surprisingly engaging, using case studies and examples that really help contextualise the otherwise dry material. The subject also covers political parties, social issues, and some policy developments.
