"TAFE NSW Western Sydney gives great support to international students. The well-structured and organised course of study from experts along with the more practical approach played a vital role in building up my confidence and shaping my future career. I am very happy about my decision to study in Australia and impressed with the quality of education at TAFE NSW. It is very inspiring. Australia is easy to get around and has friendly people. I definitely feel very much at home here. I believe in learning every moment of my life. Two years' journey at TAFE was full of those moments."
