I've done it!

"I've been to university as well but that didn't work out for me. I think TAFE is the best way to learn. At TAFE you can have feedback from your teachers and it's more personal. If you have questions you can easily ask whereas at university you're just sitting in this one big tutorial. For me, it's a lot easier going to TAFE because everyone wants you to succeed and they want you to do well and pass and get good qualifications."
