Sam Bates | Pro Cricketer aiming for university

Meet Sam, one of our impressive students studying the Diploma in Tasmania.

I’ve just moved to Hobart to pursue a professional cricketing career, so it’s pretty full-on. That’s why this Diploma was perfect for me,” she shared.

Many of our students work while studying or have other demands they need to focus on at the same time. Sam is an inspiring example of how studying at APC is still possible, no matter other important commitments in life! 

 

What our students say

Ashleigh Giles | Adelaide student

Meet Ashleigh, one of our amazing students who studied the Diploma at APC.

As someone who is looking to change careers, Ashleigh is happy with her decision to study with APC due to the flexibility she’s able to have while working.

“I’m currently working full-time in aged care, so choosing the diploma as opposed to the bachelor for me was just the convenience of being able to study it at my own pace at the same time as continuing to do a job that I love”, she shared.
