Studied an Advanced Diploma of Furniture Design and Technology at Holmesglen Institute

Jack now owns and runs a Melbourne-based furniture business - Nosiva – Natural Urban Living - that specialises in custom made furniture and has an ever growing list of residential and corporate clients.

“Holmesglen was the perfect choice for me as I always preferred working with my hands. The lessons were practically based and taught me a great deal about the furniture industry. I especially enjoyed using machinery and tools that were identical to those used by industry professionals.


Moved from Brazil to study a Diploma of International Business at Holmesglen in 2014

“After some research, I found the right courses for me; the Certificate III and Certificate IV in International Trade and the Diploma of International Business at Holmesglen.

“The lecturers gave me a lot of theory information, regarding importation and exportation, communication skills, law, management and much more that have helped me work in the international logistics and marketing/ management fields.

Clinician, Volunteer who studied at the College of Natural Health and Homeopathy

One of the core ingredients of happiness is giving back. Debbie got in to natural medicine when she had young children and has since carved out her career through a combination of clinical practice and volunteer work. 

Debbie has found herself in places such as the Himalayas, working with Tibetan monks and integrating local knowledge, nutrition, and organics in addition to her area of specialty, homeopathic medicine.


Educator who studied at the College of Natural Health and Homeopathy

Lyn graduated in 2000 and had a busy practice from the get-go.

“I realised I was only seeing a certain type of person and I wanted to get the message out about homeopathy because the reason I chose to study was homeopathy worked so well for my children and family.”
