Awards For Students

Student of the Month Awards

Right now, we have over 2500 students that are on their way to gaining a qualification that will help them towards achieving their career and personal goals.

Many of our students have jobs and want to progress their careers with their current employer. Some of our students are currently full time parents and are looking to get back into employment. We also have some students that are after a complete change of career.

Studying whilst juggling work, social and family life, is a tough gig. So we feel that it's important that our students understand that we appreciate the time and effort that they put into their studies.

That's why, every month, we award one student from each area of study (Business, IT, Accounting and Finance) the Student of the Month Award.

    I am honoured to be ‘Student of the Month’ of November, receiving the certificate have also recognised ongoing motivations and encouragements.

    Studying with Australian College of Commerce and Management have permitted myself to study in achievable time between other commitments. I especially like how each module are separated into different sections for better studying indications and understandings.

    I will endeavour to strive towards attaining the qualification I have put aside for many years.

    Thank you and regards
    Erica
