Ours is an invitation to all students to discover what options are available, and we commit to supporting them every step of the way,” he continued.

The prospectus includes six new courses that will be offered from October. These include: Advanced Diploma for Dental Surgery Assistants, Diploma in Cabin Crew Training, and Undergraduate Diploma in Auto Electronic and Electrical Technology, amongst others.
