Student Reviews

Mature aged student and home studies
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have only started full time studies and enrolled in a diploma in sports and fitness to complete all the prerequisite degrees needed to enter UQ’a master of physiotherapy. Studying all the courses online while running a fitness business is challenging. I wish I could just study full time without having to worry about keeping my business running.
