Why Study Massage Therapy With Q Academy?
In February 2019 the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) conducted a survey of over 500 of our Q Academy graduates and students and 93% of the respondents indicated that they would recommend studying at Q Academy to their friends and family.
Transparency and honesty are crucial to building trust and is a standard that all universities and reputable colleges abide by. At Q Academy, we don’t shy away from publishing our course fees. If a training organisation does not publish their fees, then its definitely worth reconsidering if you should even contact them if they are not open, honest and upfront.
Q Academy is recognised throughout the industry as the premiere training institution with practical courses that prepare students for life after study. As such, our graduates are in high demand throughout the region. Some employers even approach Q Academy directly to find new employees. To view current opportunities, visit our job board.
Q Academy is the only college that offers its on-campus students a “Free Resit and Refresh” option to be able to stay on top of their skills AFTER they have graduated by being able to re-sit any on-campus lessons again, FOR FREE. During our on-campus courses, students will also receive free use of the complete online version of the course to help catch up or review any lesson missed or not fully understood plus free after class revision sessions with our trainers.
