Student Testimonials:

Image of High School Programs in Australia for International Students“I’m a banking manager now, thanks to Taylors College. I had a memorable time at Taylors College where I completed Year 12 in 2001. Since then I graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor Commerce (Accounting and Applied Finance) and got a job as a personal banker with the ANZ Bank. Now, I am the Asian Banking Manager and Senior Personal Banker at their Eastwood branch. I will always remember my teachers from Taylors who helped me to adapt to the Australian lifestyle.”
- Fei Fei Sun from China, Year 12 (HSC) Graduate, 2001, Sydney campus

“After studying at Taylors for two years, I have to say I fell in love with it. I started at Taylors in TELP, a language course designed to prepare international students English skills for further studies. Then I moved on to Year 11. This course was really beneficial because it gave me a good insight into how the education system works in Australia and prepared me well for the UWA Foundation Program. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce/ Economics.”
