I am a South American student and even though I am far from my home country, people in Australia and especially Western Australia always make me feel like I am at home.
Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to help you at all times. The course structure at Challenger Institute (now known as South Metropolitan TAFE) is satisfying and has a lot of benefits.
