Kaplan emerged from humble beginnings some 70 years ago when founder Stanley Kaplan started offering “tuition” classes in his Brooklyn basement in 1938. It has since become a leading international provider of educational and career services for individuals, schools and businesses, catering to more than 1 million students from more than 500 locations around the world.
Kaplan in Singapore is made up of 2 main divisions – Kaplan Higher Education and Kaplan Learning Institute.
Through collaboration and partnership with prestigious Australian and European universities, Kaplan Higher Education offers career-oriented academic programmes designed to provide students with the skills necessary to qualify them for employment in various fields. Kaplan Higher Education Academy leverages on the availability of domestic and international students to study full time during the day while Kaplan Higher Education Institute caters to the needs of working adults seeking part time education.
