Overall, it is a great experience so far. However, some of the teachers are not so sensitive on the students feelings. We accounting students are so lucky because we have the kindest pastoral care officer and administrator. Future international students should be prepared emotionally and psychologically because studying in a foreign country will not be easy unless who put your mind and heart into it. Make friends inside the campus, no schoolwork will be too hard if you have someone to study with you. show less

Coming to Australia for education was one of my dearly sought dreams. And most important for me was to get a qualification which would equip me with the real life professional skills. I spend many weeks searching for just the right course and the Advance Diploma of Public Relations at CIT was the perfect combination of courses and very exciting electives. So if you are looking for on-hand skills development, friendly environment, academic support, adventure and fun, CIT at Canberra is the destination I strongly recommend. show less
