    Today marks the end of our long and arduous climb on the academic ladder as we reap the bounty of our hard work.  We have endured many ordeals, exhausted our abilities and pushed ourselves to the limit.  We strived and we prevailed.

    Each one of us has our own story to tell about how we got here, why we are here and what drove us to stay. I hope you don’t mind that I share with you my personal story…

    Course: Bachelor of Business (Accounting)
    Home Country: Philippines

    Doing my Bachelor’s Degree of Accounting in Australia was interesting and full of unforgettable memories, and Stott’s Colleges has greatly contributed to that. Units are designed for students to learn and apply in the industry and exams are formulated to teach rather than just a test of memory. Furthermore, lecturers are respectable and highly qualified to teach the subjects related to their field.
    What I love most about my international study experience is the balance between fun and work. The courses are developed in such a way that students have time to learn and enjoy their personal lives, so students can work part time and explore Melbourne while being a full-time student.

    Lecturers are knowledgeable with the units they teach, and various techniques are used to ensure students learn and apply the concepts. Theory units are explained well and are relevant for my future career as an accountant. The Administration and staff are also friendly and helpful. They are accommodating and open minded. They take student’s criticism positively and are willing to change policies to benefit the students. Moreover, they take the student’s issues seriously whether its personal or related to studies.

    Stott’s Colleges brings a university vibe with affordability, with the main campus in the city being extremely convenient to reach. International students who value education and a balanced student life should definitely study here.

    My name is Hannie. I’m from Vietnam. First of all, I really appreciate Stott’s for giving me a great chance to come to this beautiful country, Australia, to study. The school is like my second home.
    During two years in Stott’s, I’ve met a lot of kind teachers and friends who helped me a lot in both my life and study. The teachers were always beside us, supported and motivated us in study. When I had trouble in something, they always helped me to find the best solution to overcome it. The students in this school are absolutely friendly, we had wonderful time together here.
    Being a oversea student, I find it hard to live and study abroad, and Stott’s was the right choice to begin overseas study. After studying here, I feel much more confident to be ready for the new life in university.
    Thank you so much for teaching me a lot during two years. You are not only our best teacher but also our great father. Wish you all the best.

    Home country: China

    It’s true that my school is not as large as some other private schools in Victoria. However, you do get more attention at Stott’s. In my school, you can ask questions straight instead of sending emails. I used to have lots questions to be solved, all the teachers at Stott’s were willing to help me. Meanwhile, our administrators are also helpful and friendly. Any issues you have may be solved by them. To help us, Stott’s offers free English classes for those students who find difficulties in reading questions.

    Finally, good accommodation backs up students’ study. Our school arranges homestay for us. Here I must say: “Thank you” to the school because they found me such a good place.

    In general, I hope each student who studies at Stott’s or considers going to Stott’s will have great achievements in the end. Sometimes your results may bring you a scholarship which will lighten the financial burden on your parents.
