    Even though I missed the March intake, the best thing about Martin is the flexible and frequent start dates - which meant I could still enrol quickly and easily. The course is great, the teachers are fantastic and the atmosphere is buzzing - Martin's a fun place to be. Martin courses offer great pathways into uni, and that's hopefully where I’ll end up.

  • Simon

    Diploma of Business

    It was really easy to enrol with Martin - I liked how easily accessible and helpful the staff were. Martin offers fantastic pathways to move to a degree, and that's what I hope to do when I graduate. I would ideally like to transfer to do an accounting course.

    This course taught me so much about marketing, especially with a focus on the Asia/Pacific region.
