Yes, I recommend this program

I came here in November and I was really delighted to enter in WelTec. I'm having great experience here as I acknowledged and gained more intellectual skills in WelTec. Studies in WelTec are really interesting as there is not much pressure on students. By remaining stress-free, the course can be completed as teachers are really helpful always. This is the best thing about WelTec that it's professors always offer help whenever you need without any hesitation. Even I got moral support too as its not easy to live without family for an international student, but because of wonderful environment and staff, it wasn't difficult for me to cope up. I just loved WelTec till now. Thanks

What would you improve about this program?
I think there should be campus placement for students so that they can be ensured that they will get job after course completion

What is your favorite travel memory?

elephant sanctuary in Northern Thailand

My favorite travel memory was discovering an elephant sanctuary in Northern Thailand where elephants who have suffered in the tourist trade or logging industry are able to live the rest of their lives peacefully in beautiful surroundings.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I haven't been here long but already I've learned a lot about the cultures of the students that come to WelTec to study. It has made me want to travel more and see a lot more of the world.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I have biomedical science and psychology qualifications already, as I've always been interested in the health sector, so I would choose the Master of Professional Practice in Health and Social Sciences.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

WelTec is unique because it has such an emphasis on practical learning. Our courses really prepare students for the work they'll be doing once they graduate.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

A successful company puts people first, both its staff and students.
