Consulting the real expert to find the best course

When 'society' expects you to go to uni, but you know TAFE NSW is the best fit for you, it's nice to know that someone has your back. When that someone is your mum, that’s REALLY nice.

Consulting the real expert to find the best course

An open mind and a collaborative approach to decision-making led Emma-Jane's family to choose a Bachelor of Interior Design at TAFE NSW. 

“It was really more important for us, for her to follow what she was passionate about, what she loved and we knew she'd get the best out of an education here at TAFE for her, than what she would get out of a larger university,“ says Tracey, Emma-Jane's mum.

“She'd get excellent teaching, which she did, really one-on-one, and a very thorough, well-rounded course.”

The industry-relevant, hands-on skills that TAFE NSW teaches seemed to have a large impact on Emma-Jane's study decision, but class and campus size and atmosphere also factored into her choice. Studying at TAFE NSW turned out to be the perfect choice as Emma-Jane found work in her dream field through TAFE NSW connections while she was still studying.
