I chose TAFE for its exceptional reputation, high academic standards, and practical approach to learning. TAFE's pragmatic methodology, which emphasises hands on learning and real-world experience, greatly appealed to me.

I study horticulture at TAFE and there is good infrastructure here. We have a nice greenhouse and retail section. You see a lot of plants and that obviously helps because seeing a plant in real life is not the same as studying about it in a book. There's a lot of practical activities and the lecturers are very passionate as they've been in the industry for many years. This is different from the professors I had at university.

Before coming to Australia, I completed an advanced diploma in digital animation, and wanted to further my studies to get into the digital market workforce with ease. I didn’t want to go to university, but rather study in a more practical environment, being assessed on real workplace skills needed in the industry. Imagine my luck when I found TAFE. The staff and students are friendly, and willing to assist me when I ask them.
