Course: Study and Work Program


I participated in the General English and Certificate III in Individual Support courses at Charter Australia. Before going to Australia, I had graduated from a four-year university course in Japan. I decided that I would go to Australia after working in a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit for five years in Japan.

When I started class, I was anxious and worried about the English requirements. “Will I able to keep up with the class?”. “Will I be able to graduate?”. The students around me were very experienced and I remembered that I was trying to study as much as I could to keep up with teachers as well as other students.

Every teacher was kind and nice. They taught me plenty of things, such as lifestyle in Sydney, how to get a job, and how to create a nice resume. I really appreciate all the teachers who were so helpful and friendly all the time.

I met many nurses here. In other schools, you must go far away from the city just to work, and you even pay a large amount for school fees, and additional fees for General English Classes. However, Charter Australia had reasonable fees, and was able to introduce me to a workplace for free.

I strongly recommend that if you want to make use of your nursing qualification in Australia and you have a Working Holiday Visa, Charter Australia will be a great school for you.
