"At the time of studying at GOTAFE, I was unsure of what path was correct for me. GOTAFE allowed me to explore what possible options I could take after completing my studies. Having a dedicated room to the course allowed myself and other students to have access to a lot of practical equipment, allowing us to study in a very practical way."

- Samuel, Certificates III and IV in Information Technology
