Student Success Story:
Nationality - Sweden
Study area - Fitness
I've always been interested in fitness training and travelling. I spoke to a former TAFE Queensland student who loved her time here and I thought, "it's the place to be!" The campus is in a really good location. If you have a long break you can go down to the beach and have a surf and a swim. I love the people and the culture here. It's paradise and it feels like home.
