What our Graduates Think

I recently completed my Diploma of Community Services with Kirana. I was incredibly impressed with the level of support I received from my teacher Wendy, who was a great help to me through every step of my study journey. As somebody who has worked in the industry for a few years, gaining this qualification allows me to take my career to the next level. I would recommend Kirana colleges to anybody to further their education.

Stephanie Vivian - Diploma of Community Services

Sheralyn was able to give me sound, useful advice when I was struggling balancing family/work and study. I really appreciate the fact that Sheralyn went above and beyond her duties in supporting and educating me through my Diploma, sometimes working early or late to have a conversation about a concept I was struggling with.

Chelsea East - Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care

From the get-go Kirana was wonderful. From all the online colleges I emailed, Kirana replied first. They were super easy to deal with and set up payments without trouble. The course was amazing. I learnt so much studying online, and the help I got from my trainers was prompt, easy to understand and friendly. The website is set out in a way that anything is easy to find and working through the course content was so simple. Thank you Kirana Colleges for all your help, and for setting me up in a career for life!

Matthew Musgrove - Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)

From the initial phone call with Kirana Colleges I knew that they would be the right choice and I was not disappointed. I appreciated the flexibility of a self-paced course that was provided for me, the learning materials were clear and to the point. Office staff, student support and my teacher were always available to answer any queries and help me out when I needed it. Thank you for making my experience so smooth!

Sabina Green - Certificate III in Individual Support

Studying online was totally new to me and quite a daunting prospect, but Kirana made it so easy. From initial contact, right through to the end, each person I dealt with in the organisation was extremely friendly, professional, and respectful.
I never felt like I was doing my course on my own. I always knew that I had support, with feedback to questions almost immediately every time.
I highly recommend Kirana Colleges to anyone looking into a qualification.

Rolene Van Der Westhuizen - Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

I highly recommend Kirana for anyone wanting user friendly online learning and excellent course material. The communication and support from my trainer went beyond my expectations, I certainly didn’t feel as though I was studying alone.

Achieving my Diploma was an enjoyable and rewarding experience thanks to Kirana.
