  • Testimonial

    "I have chosen Canning College because Canning College's Diploma of Commerce program is one of the greatest pathways for me to enter UWA.  The class size of the program is smaller compared to UWA and this is one of the main reasons why I chose to continue my studies in Canning College.  In this college, we will have more chances to communicate with our lecturers and therefore to up skill our English language before entering UWA.  One more thing that I love about Canning College is their teaching staff are really nice and super approachable!"
