Don’t just take our word for it
I decided to study at Laneway Education because I liked the atmosphere of the school which has a really good energy. Also, the teachers and staff are always supporting me with my studies and my business. This is one of the reasons I'm really enjoying my life here in Sydney!
There is one word that summarizes my experience at Laneway, inspiring. First of all, the school is located in one of the most inspiring buildings, where real startups are developing or creating their businesses. Then, the teachers. All of them are entrepreneurs or/and business coaches, that share their valuable knowledge with us. Finally, the community of students. People from all around the world that inspires you with their different backgrounds and points of view. All these combined results in a school that you really want to attend on a Monday morning.
The thing that I love the most about Laneway is that you don't just sit behind the desk and listen to someone. Here we enjoy active parts inside of each lesson. There is plenty of co-working, brainstorming, design thinking and meeting inspirational people from real business and that all with great teachers. Plus, the exciting bonus is that you have the opportunity of internships in one of the start-up businesses.
Laneway is a great school, I absolutely love this college. The teachers are caring, approachable and so helpful, there have been so many opportunities for me to socialize and interact with my peers and get to know people from all over the world. I'm enjoying my experience at Laneway and can't wait to see the opportunities that will open in the future.
When I arrived in Australia I was looking for a school with a different methodology that would make me feel like I want to go to school again. I fell in love with Laneway since the first moment. The school looks different, and it definitely is. The methodology they use is innovative, with a lot of design thinking exercises that stimulate us to actually think and create. I really use what I learn in my real life. I love the fact that everyone who works at school is very kind and reachable. At Laneway I don't feel like going to school, it feels like my home in Australia.
At Laneway I could find everything that I was looking for in a school. The structure of the course, the opportunities that the school could offer to me and the quality of the teachers. And, I made a lot of friends there and could find opportunities to do my first internship in Australia."
I would like to say how much I appreciate Laneway Education. I love the Innovative approach by trying to do things differently and listening to students. Everyone is so lovely and nothing but a high vibe energy every time I attend class.
I am really happy that a couple of months ago I decided to step out of my comfort zone and come to study here in Australia, precisely, at Laneway Education! It is a place where everyone has an ability to find their own path.
When looking to advance my studies in Australia I was specifically looking for an entrepreneurship program that would give me the tools and resources I need to start my own business. I have been very happy with what Laneway has to offer in that regard.
