Testimonials and Why TAFE

Don't take our word for it

See what our students have to say about their time at TAFE NSW

I wasn’t really into the whole university atmosphere where everyone seems to be competing. At TAFE, everyone kinda helps each other. It’s much more supportive.

- Jesse Skinner, Bachelor of 3D Art and Animation

Coming to TAFE was a much better fit for me because I was really able to be one-on-one with teachers and it was a much more intimate learning environment, which really benefited me as a student.

- Olivia Groome, Bachelor of Design (Interior Design)
