Student Spotlight: Ihab Al-Badri – BSB50120 Diploma of Business

Ihab chose to study at ACBC to pursue his passion for business and his desire to gain practical experience. His sister studied at the College earlier and recommended it to him. He’s now on his way to receiving his Diploma and getting hands-on experience in the business world.

Besides his passion for business and the positive things he heard, Ihab chose ACBC because it offered the opportunity to complete a Diploma course in one year. His decision was also motivated by the support ACBC provides to gain practical skills and get prepared to work in business. Ihab is now completing his work placement with Stealth Financial Services one day per week.

Looking to the future, Ihab says, “I’m eager to apply what I’ve learned in my studies to the real-world business environment. My goal is to secure a position where I can contribute my knowledge and gain practical experience.  Then I would like to build my own company.”

His advice to students is, “Hard work pays off, so commit to your studies and put in 100%.”

Course: CHC52015 Diploma of Community Service (online)

Favourite thing about studying at ACBC:  My favourite thing about studying at ACBC is the fact that the trainers are very knowledgeable and are always there to answer my questions and offer me assistance when I need it.  The reception staff are also great to talk to and get things done quickly. 

What are you enjoying about your online study and course at ACBC? The thing I enjoy most is the flexibility. I can study when my children are at school or asleep.  I don’t need to travel to a classroom so I can also be there to take them to their activities. Studying online has helped me and my family because it made the prospect of studying possible.  If there was no online offer, I would not have been able to study.  

How has your experience with us been: I have had a great experience and will choose ACBC again in the future if you want to study some more.  

What are your plans after completing the course: I look forward to returning to the workforce and using the knowledge I have gained into action. 

Advice to ACBC students: if you need help ask for it.  The skills and knowledge you will gain will set you up for a great future.  Everyone is willing to help, but no one knows you need it till you ask for it.

Student Profile: Sanya Arora

Name: Sanya Arora

Course: BSB60515 Diploma in Marketing and Communications

Campus: Liverpool/Online

Year of study: 2021-2022

Employer: Telstra Penrith

Role: Retail and Marketing Consultant

University: University of Technology Sydney, UTS 

Qualification: Bachelor of Business (Currently enrolled) Full-Time

Favourite thing about studying at ACBC: 

My favourite thing about studying at ACBC would have to be the experience of studying online and handling work-life balance with school work and juggling assessments.

I think the best part was that I was able to apply for credit at UTS for the second year and I will just be doing two years of uni (1st year and third year), rather than the normal 3 years full-time. ACBC has offered me a great deal of support and mentoring provisions with our mentors throughout the two years with the college. I cannot be more thankful for the opportunity they provided me. I’m progressing well in life to maintain my career goals and I’m glad to be the alumni of ACBC

Advice to ACBC students: One piece of advice I would give is to make sure you are confident in what you want to do and be as prepared as you can make yourself, take incisive and participate in even little things such as projects and work placement. They go a long way and provide you with many benefits in the workplace, as well as Uni experiences for those who would like to study further. The opportunity to do a diploma during high school years will give you the advantage of a lifetime with great things heading your way.
