Emily Rhodes - UK

Course: Advanced Diploma
Institution: TAFE NSW
URL: www.tafensw.edu.au/
Location: New South Wales



After completing my Masters in Management, I was looking for something vocational and more readily recognised by the employers. 

I chose TAFE NSW for economic reasons. It is well known for its practical training and is recognised by employers here in Australia and overseas. 

The teaching staffs are brilliant and supportive. I know the teachers are from the industry and not just academics. The Advanced Diploma class had students from all levels and skills sets. The teachers made it very interesting for all students and always used real-world examples.

The campus is very big. The facilities include cafeterias, an excellent library with computer labs, group study rooms and books, student association area for students to relax, a gym and much more.

I found a part-time job in the industry easily through a local jobs website.

The tertiary education system in Australia is similar to the United Kingdom, so the transition was seamless.

I am now working at one of the TAFE NSW colleges as Promotions and Communications Coordinator and I love the job!
