Akiko Yagi

Akiko is studying the Diploma of Remedial Massage in Melbourne

I came to Melbourne in 2008 on a working holiday visa. After one year, I wanted to learn something useful in English and found massage therapy interesting. Since I had been suffering from stiff shoulders for many years, I thought it would be great if I study about the body mechanism and how to maintain my body healthy.

Daniela Roethlin

Daniela, 24, is from Switzerland and studied Interior Design

Hi. My name is Daniela and I'm from Switzerland. I have had the great opportunity to study Interior Design at NMIT Preston.

I absolutely love it. The teachers are great; very helpful and understanding. We have interesting projects and get challenged at school every day. I have made good friendships during my study. NMIT offers a huge range of courses and opportunities.

I like Preston campus because all of the staff are very friendly, the library has long opening hours, you can make use of many facilities and I have to mention the coffee you get in the canteen is awesome.
