Occupation: Student

“I am a student from Italy and I’ve been studying at Australian Pacific College for almost a year. The reason why I chose this college is because I had great feedback from a dear friend who studied here. The environment really encourages students to improve their skills. The teachers are competent and make you feel welcomed. It’s a good opportunity for me to stay in the country, improve my English and make new friends.”
