Student Testimonials

What Past
Students Say?

The Social Enterprise Program is a unique offering for tertiary students in Australia. Students are provided opportunities in a practical setting that support their theoretical teachings at university. No other program in Australia provides participants with a risk-free opportunity to run their own business whilst being mentored by an industry professional. The Program helps students stand out from the crowd when applying for internships and graduate jobs, by demonstrating practical experience, a commitment to development, an awareness of the community and an exposure to the industry.

  • The highlight of the Program was working one-on-one with the my Mentor… I learnt how to sell my ideas and the importance of understanding your client’s needs.

  • I wanted to put my skills into use in the community, whilst furthering my career. I learnt soft skills for business…what to do in a business meeting, how to present your ideas, how to execute a deal. It was invaluable.
