PamudiSanali(Diploma in Business) University of Western Sydney

THE IELTS programme is a great addition to the programme and it’s free of charge here. I would recommend the Foundation and Diploma programs to anybody looking at long term opportunities in Australia.

Sanil Perera(Foundation Science) La Trobe Melbourne

I am happy and I had the confidence to choose this path. Now I will be graduating a whole year ahead of my friends at school.

Thayamie (Diploma in Business) Deakin University

Many are reluctant to pursue higher education as they are under the impression that private education always comes with a very high cost and many risks involved. I believe it is time to look for avenues beyond the obvious and push through to get what you deserve and ANC is the best choice I made.

AnushiKavindiPeiris (Diploma in Business) Deakin University

The most deciding factor for me was the cost associated with the diploma. I thank ANC for the initiative taken to provide local students the opportunity of experiencing international education right at home and for the continued support with regard to applying for my 2nd year at the Deakin University.

RumalSansika-(Foundation Science) La Trobe Melbourne

A 10 month course did not mean that we cut corners around the curriculum, in fact I would say we gained in depth knowledge in all areas and I am excited to put all this to use.
