"APM’s Industry Placement Program gives you an advantage in the job market over other graduates in so many ways. It translates all those theories you have learnt into practical skills which are highly valued by industry: it gives you a taste of work life in the area of your course major; it is an incentive to start building your career network early; it gives you relevant experience to put on your CV which will help in getting that first full-time job - and in lots of cases it even results in being your first full-time job."

What graduates say

"I picked APM as I had previously studied at a big university for a year and felt a bit lost as there are so many people. APM is much smaller and the lecturers and students have a better relationship and I found it a lot easier getting help with my studies if needed. It felt much more personal at APM.
My favourite part about APM was the friends I made and that we were together throughout the whole course. I enjoyed really the classes and how friendly the lecturers were and how they made every day productive yet enjoyable.”
Tarryn Silver  |  Bachelor of Business (Event Management), Completed Industry Placement at Business Chicks. Event Host, Establishment
What I enjoyed most about APM were the small class sizes, which allowed us to receive individual attention from lecturers and learn in an interactive environment. A great aspect of the college was that the lecturers work in their field which allowed them to share relevant examples, key learning’s and insights into the industry. Alessia Murer | 2013 Graduate, Bachelor of Business (Marketing)
