No matter your question,
we are here to help!
I've always been interested in fitness training and travelling. I spoke to a former TAFE Queensland student who loved her time here and I thought, ‘it’s the place to be!’ The campus is in a really good location. If you have a long break you can go down to the beach and have a surf and a swim. I love the people and the culture here. It’s paradise and it feels like home.
Combine study with an amazing lifestyle
