Suman Shrestha, Nepalese
Bachelor of Business (Accounting)

………..My journey with KOI has been amicable, to say the least. King’s Own Institute shed me light during the darkest hours of my life. I was growing frustrated and annoyance was at the peak back in my home country Nepal. 

I had failed to get into other so-called ‘privileged and high infrastructure’ universities because of my 2 years gap after my high school. 

I saw very less hope staying back there and doing something for myself so when KOI accepted my request to join their academy, it was honestly one of the happiest moments of my life as I was finally going to get a chance to travel abroad for further studies.

I’m about to finish my 2nd trimester and I’ve been having a really amazing time at KOI. I did really well in my 1st term because of the friendly and approachable teachers who I could approach anytime.

The well-rounded subjects layout was easy to understand and relatable. The staff and the services provided is one of the catalysts well. I could go into the library even on Saturdays to work on assignments and study for exams.

I think I’ll do well this term as well. I have never felt so excited about studying. I want to go to the college every day and would even do so if I was allowed.

I plan to see my degree out, achieve my goals and fulfil my dreams. All thanks to KOI……

Rafiq Alam, Pakistani,
Bachelor of Business (Accounting)

….I left my country, Pakistan at the end of 2014 and came to Australia for studying a higher education degree.
Due to the language barrier as a non-native English speaker, I had to delay my degree course commenced and finally, I pushed myself with courage and commenced the degree program in 2017 at King’s Own Institute with reference from a friend of mine.
It was unclear whether I would be able to complete the degree in accounting at the beginning of the study but, I am in the 2nd trimester of the course now, and very happy as per my good academic performance.
Thank you KOI offers me self-confidence and a hope for the bright future…

Starting a career in Accounting at KOI it is a great experience so many challenges and hard work, with help that KOI provided that lead me to become a CPA Ambassador for KOI.
By attending a presentation held by CPA at KOI I learned about what accounting benefit would be in life and what a great opportunity to be part of CPA

Liselotte Johansson

I wanted to apply for the CPA Student Ambassador role to start my accounting career journey here in Australia, to become more familiar with the accounting industry and to network while assisting CPA and supporting students at KOI with information about CPA.
I got this opportunity by attending a CPA information Session. March 2017 at KOI where Kim Hwang FCPA, International Relationship Manager of CPA Australia stated that they were looking for CPA Student Ambassadors for KOI.
Therefore I sent her my application which resulted in a successful interview. I’m happy to be a CPA Student Ambassador and looking forward to assisting CPA and KOI students in many various ways during my time as a student at KOI!
