In MNCs, there’s an expectation for business leaders to hold a Master’s Degree or its equivalent. After considering several options, I picked Murdoch University’s Executive Master in Leadership, Strategy & Innovation (E-learning) at Kaplan in Singapore.

It was the best choice because it offered content that is highly relevant to my career, a flexible schedule, and the resources for me to study whenever time permits from anywhere in the world.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Media Studies and Public Relations (Double Major)

After I graduated from Temasek Polytechnic, I was working as an intern reporter at a free news tabloid, coupled with various stints as a writer for school publications, I knew this is the industry I want to work in.

I decided to pursue a Double Major Degree in Communication and Media Studies and Public Relations with Murdoch University at Kaplan. One of the key reasons in choosing this university was because I would complete the Degree in 18 months instead of 28 months given my exemptions with my Polytechnic Diploma.

I love the practical aspects of the programme. It was structured in a flexible manner. For example, I could mix and match modules, and take on as many or as little as my time allowed. It helped that the location of the campus is central and easily accessible by public transport, as I could continue to work while studying for my Degree.

The assignments and group projects were also realistic and could be implemented in the industry. In fact, my project for the Campaign Management module, for which my group designed and presented a comprehensive social media campaign for the Singapore Red Cross, will be implemented by the organization.

The programme was facilitated by experienced lecturers and trainers from relevant industries. For example, we learnt about public relations from a lecturer who had over 15 years of experience in the industry. The lecturers passed on their skills and experiences to us, and were generally willing to share relevant contacts when we requested from them.

This Degree has prepared me well for the demands of my job as my role requires me to create content for social media and interact with the workspace community to understand their needs better, among others.

I graduated from Serangoon Junior College and I was not qualified for a course in the local universities. However, I have always wanted to pursue Psychology since my secondary school days.

I wanted to have a better understanding of myself and the people around me. I felt that studying Psychology can provide me greater insights into mental wellness. Thus, I took up Diploma in Counselling with Kaplan.

After obtaining my Diploma, I am now pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with Murdoch University at Kaplan.

Kaplan offers many choices. I decided to choose Murdoch University due to its global recognition and strong presence in Singapore.

As I am working full-time while pursuing my degree, Murdoch University’s flexible study schedule makes it easy for me to balance between work and studies. It also provides me with reasonable timelines to submit my assignments and prepare for exams. The location is a plus point as it is easily accessible by public transport.

The lecturers are also approachable and helpful as they would schedule sessions outside lessons to help us with our assignments. They have made learning an enjoyable experience for students.

I would definitely recommend this Bachelor’s Degree programme to those who want to further study in Psychology.

I graduated with a Diploma in Electronics, Computer and Communications from Nanyang Polytechnic. However, I wanted to explore other options so I took up a Diploma in Early Childhood Education programme. Now, I’m pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.

As an educator, I work with children below 7 years old and parents. I findthat studying psychology gives me a better understanding of human behaviour and makes it easier when communicating with children and parents. Most importantly, Psychology can be applied in any industry as it also focuses on understanding the human dynamics in the workplace.

I have enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Murdoch University because it has a good reputation internationally, and believe I can create a positive impact on others through applying the knowledge and skills from this programme.

The lecturers are very caring and they encourage us to ask questions. I find it very motivating. Another plus point is, the class size is small. Learning is enhanced and there are opportunities for everyone to participate.

Working full-time, studying part-time and managing my forum were a struggle initially because my job occasionally requires me to work on Saturdays and I had 4 modules to complete per trimester. Thanks to Murdoch, it offers blending learning and flexible schedule which helps me to plan my own time.

This degree allows me to keep my options open in the industry. I hope to be able to use my skills to connect fellow educators in Singapore.

To remain competitive in today’s workforce, having a Degree has become increasingly important in the job market.

A Degree offers more job openings, more flexibility with which jobs I can apply – are the key reasons which I pursue a Degree. As I have my diploma from Nanyang Polytechnic, I enjoyed module exemptions and can complete my degree in 16 months instead of 28 months.

The great variety of Double Major Degree programmes offered by Murdoch University sparked my interest. It has over 130 double majors and 19 disciplines for me to choose from.

I had found the banking and finance programme to be helpful in enhancing my understanding of the highly globalised banking industry. When I decided to pursue a degree after encouragement from my friends and family, taking a Murdoch University Double Major programme at Kaplan was a clear choice for me.

Other than the ideal course duration due to the advanced standing received through my relevant diploma, a flexible schedule and industry’s recognition of the qualification gave me greater confidence in taking the plunge.

Having lecturers who made complicated concepts easy to grasp was a huge bonus. On top of this, I appreciate the lecturers’ good support of timely responses to my queries, even when it was outside lesson hours.

I graduated with a Diploma in Molecular Biotechnology from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. However, I decided for a career switch when I had the chance to work in a fast-moving consumer goods firm. I was inspired by how a brand manager plays a vital role in the marketing and communications industry.

Knowing that I lacked the relevant skills in communications and public relations, I went ahead with a Double Major in Communication and Public Relations from Murdoch University with Kaplan. I felt it would put me on a better leverage in today’s competitive society and the degree would equip me with the skills to be more effective in building and understanding business-to-consumer relations.

The flexible study schedule helped me to juggle work and studies. As most of the lecturers are working professionals from different walks of life, they shared beneficial industry insights during classes.

The degree programme has helped me gain a deeper understanding of social media, and I have learnt to be a more strategic marketing and communications professional.
