I enrolled into the study and career prep course in 2022 to gain the tools that were necessary for me to get into the Bachelor of Nursing. The tutors are amazing and are very helpful along with the students. I highly recommend anyone who is going into postgraduate or university to take on the study career prep course (Level 4). Because of the study and career prep I am now in my second semester of Nursing. Mauri Ora! And Kia kaha!
