Preparing our students for success

"My lecturer organised for me to interview Jo Puccini, the Head of the ABC Investigations Unit, for the college's weekly guest lectures. This guest lecture helped me secure an internship with the nightly current affairs program, 'The 7:30 Report' at the ABC." 

"I found the assessment tasks a real highlight as you were allowed to do things that a PR role requires in the real world. I was so glad to have found a college that actually prepared you for the workforce." 

"My relationship with my teachers was superb and the intimate environment allowed students the opportunity to excel and receive the help they needed to get the most out of a class."
