With the recommendation from one of my colleagues, I decided to further my studies with Griffith University to gain knowledge and upgrade my skills to better care for patients.

The programme structure is well organised and class schedules were in teaching blocks which was helpful for me due to my shift work. The lecturers were very helpful and knowledgeable as well.

Kaplan’s city campus is easily accessible from most areas of Singapore. My overall learning experience was great and my expectations were met at Kaplan and Griffith University in terms of teaching and supporting functions. The programme equipped us with practical skills and knowledge that have empowered us to work competently, ethically and confidently within our health service environments.

The intensive block-teaching schedule provided more flexibility in allocating time to my study, work and personal commitments. I am honoured to receive the Griffith International Outstanding Merit Scholarship and a salary increment after my graduation.
