Nick Shabalala, who studied a 3yr Travel and Tourism Advanced Diploma with us, shares his Pax College experience.
“I enrolled with Pax College in 2003, after a close friend of mine recommended the College to me. I studied an internationally recognised 3yr Travel and Tourism Advanced Diploma. From day one I knew that Pax was different from other Tertiary Institutions out there. I was a very shy and reserved person when I first arrived; I quickly realised that the lecturers and management at Pax were not only interested in my academic studies, but also in my own personal growth. I was encouraged to get involved in a number of extra mural activities offered by the College and soon discovered a passion for drama and acting. Through this I started to discover hidden talents within myself, and a new found self-confidence, which I believe to this day has given me the positive attitude to achieve my dreams. When I completed my diploma, Pax helped me to get placed with an International travel company for in-service training for 6 months. I was then offered a permanent frontline position at the same company. Just three years later I’m now working for an International Airline Company! Pax has been more than just a Tertiary Institute to me, it’s been a family that cares!”
