Australian Business Academy / Service of Student Manager and lack of care for students
I have been a past student at this so called Business College, I payed $14, 500 for a Graphic Design Diploma and in so doing was promised that this college will assist me in gaining employment.I was told that the College will do their utmost to assist all students who complete the course to find employment or workexperience.
I have completed my course at the end of 2006 and have not been assisted any help whatso ever in finding employmnet or work experience as promised.I went into this course thinking that this will be a good start to change my career and open more doors.Instead I am having alot of trouble getting that "Big Break" as they say.
During this time I experienced at the College I found that the teacher's have a lack of concern for what happened inside the classroom eg: Juvenile behaviour from certain individuals and good students being harrassed, or have to sit through the pathetic noisy behaviour of some of the juvenile students, teasing that happened there, some students and I myself reported this and in so doing I was in the end a target from the juvenile's to make my life hard every time I was there, I reported this as well, when I was given a hard time for standing up for all the other students who were doing the right thing.
The Student Manager did not care, and no much change happened they only care for dismissing all bad thing that happen in the classroom and only care about the money from the student's, mind you the course is not that cheap!
Along with all this nonsense and chaos there were some students who stole copyrighted material so that they can get good marks for their assignments, Again I was annoyed at this behavior as a student, we were told in Graphic Design it is better to be original than be a scam artist! etc so I did all my artwork from scratch, when I told the teacher he told the person/s not to do it and to redo their assignment but, in the end they did the same thing and got top marks, meanwhile I got less than average marks for my original work! sometimes I wondered myself if I should of scammed my way through the course then I would of got top marks and amazingly enough when this course finished all the scam students all got jobs in good graphic design company's!
I rang the Student Manager many times after I completed the course and all she said was to send in my Resume so that she can go over the format?
Out of all the money I payed to this College I feel I totally wasted my time, money and life and the lack of care and treatment I recieved while I was a student of Australian Business Academy.
