STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

Top scorer in Commerce Stream Semester 1 Examination
The UNSW Foundation programme in KDU College is perhaps my most enjoyable education experience so far. This programme is quite challenging due to the one-year duration, but it is this challenge that has allowed me to achieve marks I have never achieved before.
