"I have just started your course and I was previously studying the same course locally, but being a single mum I found it a juggle with my three boys. Swapping to online through Online Courses AUS was the best decision I ever made. It's so much more organised and I can work my studies around my children. It's no longer a juggle trying to fit everything into my busy lifestyle. Brigid that helped me prior to switching was so friendly and helpful which helped me in making my decision to swap from in class to online. I am enjoying the ease and the simple way in which the course is delivered. I can't thank you all enough for your help." - Robyn
