I think the overall experience was positive and as a student I really had to dedicate time for my study commitments. Through online study at Tafe Digital I achieved this easily and the teachers we very supportive. Thanks Tafe Digital !

I found the study/personal life balance a breeze. The course house was easy to understand and follow. The course progress tracker was amazing as I could see how far I was through my diploma and how far I still had to go. I found this to be a great motivator. I also found the teachers very helpful and responded to emails usually within the day.

I’m loving my course! The website is so easy to navigate through & any time I need additional information I am responded to so quickly & thoroughly. Wouldn’t study elsewhere, I’m already enrolled to do another course alongside my diploma!

It was good, the teachers were great help. I have developed skills that I never thought I would develop. The online content was easy to read and the 2 work placements that had to be done was well supported. I am glad for the experience within the course and it has helped with my self confidence.
