“Since the first moment I stepped into Barrington, I have been met with nothing but proficiency and enthusiasm.  The well-designed pathways are the best fit for my South Korean students. The faculty and staff at Barrington are top rate, more than supportive. This school has so many opportunities for the students to get the help they need and a lot of new experiences for them to explore. I am glad that I made the decision to cooperate with Barrington. I believe Barrington is never going to let anyone down.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my study experience with Barrington College - they have great trainers with years of industry experience and its such a friendly campus. I completed my industry placement at the luxurious Palazzo Versace Gold Coast, which was a great experience and has helped to advance my career as a chef. My next career step is with The Star Sydney.

I highly recommend Barrington College and the Gold Coast to international students who are seeking a uniquely Australian study and lifestyle experience.”

"In February I completed my studies at Barrington College and it was a great experience with lots of support from my teachers and the management! I studied for two years, from 2021 to 2023, and completed Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery and a Diploma of Hospitality Management. From the very beginning, I liked the quality of service and the professionalism of the staff. All units and any questions I had were explained easily to me because English isn’t my first language.

Moving from Brisbane, I had to choose between three different colleges on the Gold Coast. I chose Barrington because it is the college where I felt comfortable from the first moment. Simon, the manager, explained everything about study and opportunities during my student life. I liked the spacious kitchen with lots of utilities and the chefs who were very friendly to me and answered all my questions about the study program and provided me with fun recipes. I liked that I can be creative in the kitchen anytime I feel like experimenting with my dishes.

The teachers were supportive and always went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. The school also has a cafe with special prices for students, and the coffee and food always were tasty and hot as I always liked.

Big thank you to the excellent education and training I received at Barrington, I was able to secure a job as a cook at a famous hotel brand even while studying. And before my graduation, I was promoted to the commis chef position! I can honestly say that the skills and knowledge I gained from Barrington College have been so important in my career and life choices.

All the best and don’t forget to enjoy your study because the time there would be so precious."

"It has been wonderful to work with Barrington College - all communication was professional and clear. I completed the RPL process to obtain my Diploma and everything was clearly mapped, evidence guidelines were easily followed and responses to questions were prompt. When completing RPL's for work-related study, timelines are paramount, and Barrington was instrumental in ensuring everything ran as smoothly as possible"
