What do our students think?

"My friend studied at Newcastle and always told me the wonderful experience he had at Hunter TAFE. But what most influenced my decision was the international recognition of the quality education of Hunter TAFE.

Newcastle is an amazing city. It has a great mix of a small urban area with everything a big city can offer. But if you want to visit a very big city, Sydney is two hours away. The local people are friendly and peaceful, the architecture is beautiful, public transport works well in addition to gorgeous landscapes minutes away. Newcastle is a very quiet town. The cost of living is low and if you work in the city, you can choose to live in a part near the beach, or near the forest or in the village and all will be close to your work."
