“I have been studying Academic English Program for two semesters. I chose UWSCollege because I wanted to go to the University of Western Sydney to study my Master Degree program majoring in Psychological Counselling. The Academic English course really helps me in writing and reading. The teachers are very nice, friendly and have willingness to help their students. I really appreciate that UWSCollege has provided the female prayer room and female lunch room. The location and the time table is very flexible for a mother like me who lives in Granville and has two children. In the future, I plan to open my own counselling service office. If you are thinking of studying Academic English, UWSCollege is the best choice for you!“
