No matter your question,
we are here to help!
Before studying at TAFE Queensland I worked as an accountant in the financial sector of a multinational pharmaceutical company in Colombia. I decided to study English in Australia because it's a safe, modern, and progressive country. It offers quality education, international recognition, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. I chose to study at TAFE Queensland because it's government owned and operated and gives me the opportunity to continue my professional training at a high standard. The teachers at TAFE Queensland have broad theoretical and practical knowledge of the English language. They make classes practical and applicable to everyday life. They are patient, organised and make learning enjoyable and entertaining. After finishing my English language studies I want to continue my professional training and obtain a masters in finance to add value to my resume and expand my opportunities for work.
