    Double Diploma: Business & Management

    I chose to study at Martin because I heard how great it was to study here from a friend. Martin is truly one of the best places to study. The environment and buzz of campus life is amazing.

    Management University Pathway Package

    Martin's Management University Pathway Package was perfect for me and my future. The course gives me the foundational knowledge about business and management, and allows me to transfer into uni with up to 1. 5 years of credit. The teachers really care about our success. I also think it's a fantastic learning and training to move onto uni. I plan to use my pathway package at Martin to pave my way into uni.
