What our graduates have to say...

  • My educational journey with City East Community College was very productive, helpful and necessary. After finishing two courses I became more confident in speaking English and I was able to find my first real job in Australia. My teacher taught me not only English, but also many important local things about Australia and made my adaptation process easier. Svitlana
  • I’d like to express my deepest gratitude to you and all teachers for professional approach and caring attitude. The Learning process is very engaging and opens new horizons.. Anna
  • I don’t know how to express my gratefulness to the mentor program in City East College! When I was in the face to face interview and was asked all these situation questions, I thought of how you taught me with the STAR interview strategies! It changed my life and it’s a new chapter for me and my family. I am ready to contribute back to the society with my skills and hard work. Thanks for all the help offered to the skilled migrants and return-to-work mothers like me. City East Mentee Program
