"Fantastic! Enrolling myself in the diploma and heading down the online path was daunting at first, especially juggling work and kids, but I was pleasantly surprised how user-friendly the whole course has been. The course content is easy to follow and manage. You do need good time management and motivation to stay on track, however the student support has been fantastic.”
