Patricio Banados-Valenzuela

Patricio Banados-Valenzuela is from Chile and is studying Diploma of Fashion Design at TAFE SA

"I first heard about Adelaide from the internet, and learned that it was a good place for study with very nice people. I wanted to improve my English so I studied for three years at the SA Adelaide Language Centre. At the language centre we were given lots of information about all of the Adelaide universities and institutions, and everybody said that TAFE SA was a very good place to study. I can now say that is true. The Fashion Design course is very practical, but we also do theory as well of course. The teachers are very supportive and the other students are all friendly – there are about 16 of us, mostly Australian but also some from Canada and England. The TAFE diploma is recognised in Chile, and it is much easier to find work if you have studied in another country, so I hope to return home to start my career in the fashion industry. I would absolutely recommend Adelaide as a place to study. There are no so many distractions as other cities, so you can concentrate on studies. But it is also a very good place to improve your English, and everything is so near that you can’t get lost."
