Testimonial "Canning College gave me a second chance to go to The University of Western Australia (UWA) through its Diploma of Commerce program after I was not accepted by UWA due to my Universities Admission Index (UAI) not meeting their standard. Since the first day of the orientation program, I knew I had made the right decision to study here. The staff and lecturers are very friendly and have great experiences in the area that they are teaching in. The great part is that there are students from all around the world in the UniDirect program. I am sure that this will be a great experience for me in the future."
