Certificate II I Horticulture / Certificate III in Horticulture / Diploma of Horticulture

Australia has all the key points that I wanted for studying abroad: good living conditions, beautiful weather, and a friendly social community. I feel very safe asking for directions and catching public transport here, and my classmates and teachers have been very supportive. I love walking about and enjoying the trees and landscaped gardens on campus. These refresh my mind and my body. Choosing Brisbane as my study location has been a fantastic decision. After graduation I plan on working in Australia for a few years and then volunteering abroad to help other people in need. Eventually I’d like to use the knowledge and practical skills I gained at TAFE Queensland to build a private organic farm in Vietnam.
