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.”

"When I was approaching my last exam at APM, I was a little scared of being pushed into the ‘real world’. During my time at APM I did two  internships and gained a contact that was looking to hire a graduate and my career began! I did my workplace experience at Brave in North Sydney before moving to 303 in Pyrmont, which provided me with the contact I needed to gain a fulltime position with my current employer. The Industry Placement Program was my favourite part of the APM experience."
