Emily Rhodes (U.K)

Studied Advanced Diploma in Marketing

After completing my Masters in Management, I was looking for something vocational and more readily recognised by the employers.

I chose TAFE NSW for economic reasons. I know the teachers are from the industry and not just academics.

I worked in the industry part-time, found the job easily through a local jobs website. The teaching staff are brilliant and supportive. The Advanced Diploma class had students from all levels and skills sets. The teachers made it very interesting for all students. They always used real-world examples.

The tertiary education system in Australia is similar to the United Kingdom, so the transition was seamless.

I am now working at one of the TAFE NSW colleges as a Promotions and Communications Coordinator and I love the job!
