“Kaplan Professional gave me the opportunity to work, look after my young family, and study at the same time. I chose to study with them because of their flexibility and competitive prices. Studying with Kaplan Professional has assisted my career. I started my profession as a Customer Service Officer and once I’d completed the FNS50315 Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management, I was promoted to a Loan Consultant because on my experience and education.

Kaplan Professional’s online flexibility and student support was very beneficial. If I had a question, a tutor was always able to help. I also had the flexibility to decide how much time I wanted to dedicate to studying and my assignments. Once you’re familiar with Kaplan Professional’s procedures, it’s seamless to facilitate study, assessments and exams. I’ve already recommended them to my peers.”
