I received a job offer from Goodstart Early Learning after my work placement. This is not possible without my trainer-Adam’s guidance!

Sunny Yang

I enrolled in NIET while starting a new life in Tasmania. I received lots of help from the administration and teachers. I used to struggle a lot to do my assignments. Dimpy has helped me with one-on-one consultations after classes. Classes were very engaging and interactive. Overall, I had an amazing experience with NIET.

Pragati Koirala

This course is well tailored and provides me with a good understanding of community service industry. Rhea is knowledgeable and provides excellent assistance. NIET provides students with excellent facilities and resources. Highly recommend NIET Hobart!

Olivia Mathews

I highly recommend Advanced Diploma of Translating. Da Teng is very helpful and supportive to all students and thanks to him, I passed NAATI and became a certified translator. I also improved my English a lot from this course. It was a great learning experience.

Michy W.

I am really happy to share my thoughts on my Trainer Dimpy Rani. She is approachable and informative when teaching students. She puts so much effort for every student to thrive professionally. She is not only a trainer, but also a motivational speaker, who knows how to boost the confidence in her students. I am thankful to the whole NIET STAFF for their support and services during the course.

Faisal Shehzad

Great experience with a great teacher, Mr. Alvin. When classes were online, despite the time differences, Alvin still managed to bring everyone together and maintain an engaging class. He’s always open for discussions and dedicated to help students achieving their goals.

James Bastos

I’m very grateful to Yanna, Jess and Bri for always helping and pushing be to be better! Going to campus was always so amazing that it never felt like studying, it was something I really enjoyed to be part of. I’m gonna miss so much the trainers and everything. Thanks for creating an amazing environment to us. I had great moments and I learned so much that I will never forget.
