I would like to highlight the excellent service that I’ve been given by one of your Country Managers, Chng Kay Joo aka Kay.

I first contacted Kay in November last year, enquiring about the CFS course for my daughter as an international student.  This is the first time she will be moving to Singapore for her studies so I have lots of questions on the course, student pass procedure etc. Kay was very prompt in responding to my many questions via WhatsApp messages, calls and emails. She was also friendly, patient and able to answer my queries efficiently. Throughout my dealings with her, she made me feel comfortable contacting her whenever I had any queries or issues.

I have dealt with numerous course consultants in Kaplan and other PEIs in Singapore in the process of looking for higher education that was suitable for my daughter, and Kay definitely tops the list in terms of service attitude and customer response.

Thank you, Kay, for being such an amazing Country Manager. Keep up the good work!

I’m so grateful to have been awarded a full scholarship to help reduce my financial burden. I have truly enjoyed my time in Kaplan Singapore. The location is reasonably close to Bugis and Orchard (shopping area of Singapore). The campuses are very modern, clean and nicely decorated. The staff and teachers are extremely helpful and friendly. The teachers explained the difficult materials in a thorough and simple manner, making it very easy for us to understand. I also enjoyed all activities organised by the student council and Kaplan. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to have an amazing time in Singapore.

I have been in Kaplan for a good 2 years now, and approaching my final year in pursuing a degree in 2017. Although Kaplan was never like other education institutions, with facilities like gym etc. I felt that the school has placed great effort in creating a great environment for students to immerse in. Not to mention, they cater to both full-time students and part-time students, who are more than often not, working adults.

Like this Christmas, I was happy to see a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in Wilkie Edge campus! At the very least, it made my trip to school a much more pleasant one.

Thank you Kaplan!

I would like to thank my programme consultant, Gray Ng, for providing me with in-depth details on my course of interest for the double degree programme.

He provided me with valuable information that I required and also advised me on the course that suited me best. He helped me to make a better decision on which degree to take.

I feel that the service provided by Gray Ng is great and would be sure that other students would benefit from his assistance.

I’m still serving army and wanting to study while serving, I visited Kaplan to enquire about the degree courses and was warmly welcomed by Gray Ng, a programme consultant at Kaplan. He greeted me warmly, asked me about my concerns and briefed me about the pros and cons of the different courses available. He compared and gave me a detailed analysis of the programmes so I can think of what I want to study.

I was impressed with his knowledge in this field and enthusiasm he displayed while explaining to me patiently yet providing me with valuable information. He checked with me via whatsapp on the progress I had and emailed me documents for me to request for time off as I am still serving the army.

Overall, Gray has helped me a lot regarding paperwork, advice, and feedback. I want to commend Gray for being such a helpful programme consultant, so students like me can have a better idea of what course to study.

Though this is the first private school I attended, I found it great here. All the lecturers and programme managers did their best to help us with what they could do in their capacity. Kaplan is really a worthy choice if anyone plans to get a diploma or degree in your interested course! PS. thanks Kay Tan for helping me out with my stuff these few years!

A great place to pursue your next education if you haven’t already done so! The study/lecture classes are well maintained and honestly quite conducive, with a wide range of course selections from the various universities. A big shout out to Linda (sales consultant), who rendered her knowledge and help whenever needed or possible!

I would like to thank my programme managers, Titus and Anthony, who have been a great help throughout my programme. Being a part-time student, juggling with work and study is not an easy task. Titus and Anthony had supported me academically by effectively providing me with programme schedule and updates on venue despite managing a whole cohort of students.

When I completed my army, I knew I had to go for a degree course, but with so many schools to choose from, it was really difficult to make that decision.

Kaplan was my first visit, and after that, I knew this was the place to be. Being a tourism graduate, I wanted to pursue in that direction but at the same time, I was very interested in Public Relations. That was when the sales manager, Mr Kevin Chow offered to combine these two into a double major for Hospitality, Tourism and Public Relations. This was something none of the other schools offer.

The decision to pursue my degree with Kaplan was the best decision I have made. Having great lecturers such as Louis, Piya, Esther, Frankie and many others that are knowledgeable, insightful and patient to guide us, mentor us and gave us the most memorable learning experience.

They set us on the right path and was always encouraging and supportive. The lessons were engaging, thought provoking and never boring.

I am very proud to be a student of Kaplan Singapore, and a graduate of Murdoch University’s Bachelor of Commerce.

It has been awhile since I graduated but I am really grateful and thankful that I made the choice to study Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and PR with Kaplan. The journey is definitely not smooth sailing as I need to juggle both school and work but thankfully I have amazing lecturers (like Louis, Piya, Mr Donald and others…) to guide and educate me. In Kaplan, the modules allow me to meet my good team mates (Grace, Xiuling and Kathy) and we still keep in touch till now. I guess nothing is perfect, there are times whereby I was quite frustrated with the course coordinator with timetable issues, but luckily, it always works out in the end. I am happy that my degree is relevant and it has helped me secure a good job. So, thank you Kaplan (and if anyone ask me if I will recommend Kaplan, I will definitely say highly recommended.

I would like to send you a feedback on your staff Ms Isabella Ng. She has by far been the best consultant in this field making us feel comfortable and at ease by her straight forward and honest opinion to try and help with different situations.

She cares very much about the students and is very responsible and careful when handling our matters. I can only speak of high regards about her.

I thank you for your time in reading this email and I do hope you share the same opinion as I do.

He provided me with guidance and even followed up with me after the sale to find out how I’m coping with the course, which is outside of his job scope. On top of that, he is very efficient in getting things done and is always there to answer my doubts. Thanks Gavin! Appreciate it a lot!”

I’m Wang Jiaxin. Firstly, I sincerely wish that all the teachers can be happy and healthy every day.

It is no doubt that Kaplan is an excellent school, with the best teachers and good education.

When I studied O-Levels at Kaplan, I felt warmth from the teachers and classmates. The teachers made the class so interesting that we can learn attentively. I think, they are more like friends than teachers. We are close to the teachers, so we have built friendships over time. I had a happy time studying in Kaplan. Sometimes, the school organised activities and provided delicious food. They also made the effort to create a relaxing atmosphere to relieve our tension.

Now, I have already finished my O-Levels programme, I am very grateful to the O-Level Prep School. I cherish very much the studies at Kaplan last year.

Kaplan O-Level Prep School’s lessons are fantastic, thanks very much!

Kaplan is an excellent institution of choice to me when it comes to ACCA tuition.

The excellent facilities in Kaplan provided me with an enriching environment and numerous learning opportunities. The ACCA lecturers were able to engage the class and captivate us with their strong knowledge and expertise.

The extensive range of financial programmes provided by Kaplan also gave me many options and opportunities to groom myself for the future.

Before I signed up for the ACCA examinations, I was uncertain which institution could really best prepare me for the examinations.

After attending some lessons, Kaplan exceeded my expectations by providing me with excellent lecturers, quality study support and a comfortable environment for me to study well.

I really had a smooth learning experience as Kaplan lecturers were able to patiently explain abstract theories and I received great learning materials such as past examination papers from the MyKaplan online resources.

I am writing to let Kaplan know that you guys have an exceptional employee, Mr Anthony Ho, in your Programme Management team and I would like to send my compliments to him for a good job well done!

I am very impressed with the service rendered to my fellow classmates and myself by Anthony, he is always professional, prompt and friendly in all his replies to us. He also goes out of his way to help us, especially for assignment submission as I am usually very busy at work so I am unable to visit the school as regularly to submit the hard copy assignment in the pigeon hole. Anthony will go out of his way to help me with the assignment submission.

I’m sure that Anthony has not just impressed me, he has also made a difference in the whole Kaplan experience for the rest of my classmates too.

Kaplan Singapore should be very proud to have such a responsible and professional employee, whom I feel is a great asset to the company. He has impressed me with his impeccable service standards and has put forth a very good image of the employees of Kaplan Singapore. I will definitely recommend friends or family to pursue their studies with Kaplan Singapore!

Thank you so much.

This photo marks 90% of my degree journey. Employment Relations in Asia FTBUS251C with Mr Ken Wee. He has never failed to generate deeper social insights in me, making a lazy person like me pick up the latest news and watch the news on TV. I’m quite shocked his words made me do it lol! I am grateful for @kaplansingapore @kaplancampuslife in making my journey wonderful and meaningful.

I am a student from the 4th intake of Royal Holloway University of London BSc programme, under direct care from Miss Jaslin Poh Chew Leng and would like to drop a short commendation note for her. I have just completed all mandatory examinations offered by the course and am awaiting graduation.

Miss Jaslin had displayed tremendous effort in keeping my classmates and I constantly updated of any curriculum-related notices that would concern us. She would always be ahead of time in reminding us of examination schedules and details, changes in class schedules and others. Whenever we approached her for help, she always served her duties well with utmost diligence and quality, never giving under-par efforts.

Through the entire course of my study, Miss Jaslin had consistently helped us to the best of her ability in any field we needed assistance with. Her quality replies via email clearly exuded care and pride she has with her work. The attention she gave to her students could be seen from her prompt responses and the dedication she has for her appointment is indeed second to none, which I feel is deemed worthy of this commendation.

Miss Jaslin is clearly an asset to the industry.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to Mr Jun Lin Ho (current Programme Manager) and Yi Boon Tan (former Programme Manager) for their good attitude and helpful approach.

Although Jun Lin became our programme manager when we were going to graduate, but he and Yi Boon genuinely listened to our concerns, needs and requests, and offered all of the help and support that they could in their capacity. They never failed to keep us updated and were wonderful to speak to.

Really appreciate your help for the past one and a half year. Keep up the good work!!

Thank you.

I would like to bring to your attention a member of your team that has provided exceptional service and has truly left a great impression of Kaplan to me.

His name is Anthony Ho and he was my programme manager for a course I attended in Kaplan. Anthony would go the extra mile to ensure all our questions were clarified and even took the time to explain certain complexities to us. This was not only at the start of the course but to the end, up till settling graduation trips and our electronic certificates.

Definitely deserves two thumbs up!

They inspired me to think about how I could pursue an accounting career in the future.


I would like to personally thank Pei Yee for her unwavering support and patience in putting abstract theories and concepts into simpler terms and improving my knowledge in the subject. Without her dedication, I would not have done so well for my F9 paper.”

He has very good working experience in the IT sector, and he’d always share his stories with us. Such experiences are not found in books. Emran made the effort to remember all of our names and attitudes. He never failed to keep the classes interesting and lively. Thank you Emran!”

Although I was a slow student, he never gave up on me or the others who failed. Always patient, always injecting humour in his teachings. I’m forever grateful for his graciousness and teachings. <3”

“Lecturers in Kaplan often made lessons very lively as they shared about their personal working experiences in the accounting world. The lecture notes were very comprehensive and provided clear explanations for various accounting concepts. I could also practice easily on valuable past year papers.

With a quiet library, clean and tidy study areas and the user-friendly MyKaplan e-learning portal, Kaplan provided me with a truly supportive learning environment that allowed me to fully focus on my studies.

As a student without prior accounting background or career, it would have been difficult to achieve my good grades today without the help of dedicated lecturers and well-organised class materials from Kaplan.”

I would like to convey my most sincere gratitude to my Kaplan lecturer, Ms Suzannah Tan, for enlightening me with new skills and giving me the confidence I needed to excel in my ACCA journey.

It was tough for me to understand this subject at the beginning, because I did not have a strong knowledge in financial reporting. I was even exempted for the foundation F7 paper. However, my achievement today shows that it is not impossible to do well even in the face of challenges.”
