Student review
Institute / teachers did not provide sufficient support to secure practical placement that was a component of the course. It was very challenging for me to find a facility in the industry to do my work experience. I felt it was unfair to expect students to look for and secure practical placement experience on their own. Would be great if institute provided in campus semi-professional work experience similar to the training restaurant in campus for hospitality students, or the massage centre for massage therapist students - both which opened its services to students, staff as well as members of the public.

Teacher changes every month or so. No communication between admin and department. Old computer software. Only 5 passed the course. No real insite as to current job market or industry standard. After a 3 years, only 1 graduate is still in their fitness job
