Testimonials

I have found it comfortable adapting to life at university due to the skills gained in my time at AUSMAT. The consistency of the course standards, as well as the pace at which it was delivered is similar to that of a higher education level. Class projects, group assignments and presentations combine to make AUSMAT a holistic experience which has really instilled confidence in me wherever I go. Aaron Khoo, Malaysia
AUSMAT was an eye-opening experience for me, especially so for self-discovery. The interaction with lecturers and active learning were highly prioritised to develop competitive students who are world-ready. Tan Kang Ning, AUSMAT graduate. Currently pursuing Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery at James Cook University
I absolutely love the way the contents and assessments are outlined for each subject in the programme. The topics are well- developed and sequenced, making the learning process meaningful but challenging. Ongoing AUSMAT assessments ensure that we remain consistent in learning and help us develop good time management skills. Tina Gopalan, AUSMAT Year 12 2018. Methodist College, Kuala Lumpur
Thanks to AUSMAT I can be a globally competitive student with a lot to offer my country (Zimbabwe), and other nations. Not only am I challenged by this program but I’m also inspire, and there can be no better foundation for my success. — Ruvimbo Thandiwe Gondo
