Our students talk about Holmes

I completed my undergraduate degree in Business with Holmes Institute, Sydney. At Holmes we learned to apply our theoretical knowledge through practical experiences, like giving presentations, working in teams, and active involvement in our tutorials. I felt better prepared to get into the workforce because of it. I also liked that the lecturers use real-life examples in their teaching; and the fact that they are available to help you outside class times was even better.

All Holmes staff were really helpful and the IT infra-structure –worked really well. I think that the Faculty invests a lot in students; they really look after us. I loved the environment at Holmes Institute. I've met so many nice people here. The experience has broadened my horizons and really changed my view about many things.

My advice to prospective students is that, when you come to Holmes Institute, don't be afraid to venture out. You will experience living amongst people from many different nationalities and make lifelong friends. You will receive a nationally recognised degree which will help you grow both personally and professionally,  as it has helped me.

For me, Holmes institute is the best education provider in Australia!

As an International Student, I completed my  Bachelor in Professional Accounting from Holmes Institute, Melbourne. I felt that I was lucky to be a student of Holmes;  it has helped me to acquire professional knowledge, gain a CPA-recognized accounting qualification, develop different professional, academic and life skills which have been essential to pursue my career.

The things I admire most about my college are  the support and flexibility from the lecturers and all the staff members, and the fact that as an individual student, I was able to talk to and meet my lecturers and tutors both in and out of class, on campus on a regular basis.

I would not have achieved anything without the personal connections and strong foundations that I have built while studying at Holmes. Therefore, I do recommend everyone to study at Holmes.
