I chose TAFE because it is known for the quality of its courses. I wanted to develop skills that would be valuable for me here and also back in my home country.  I graduated from university back in my country, and I plan to study an international master degree. But in the meantime, I was looking for a more practical and shorter course that would help me with the confidence to go on with my studies.
