I decided on Northumbria University because I liked the University’s approach to my programme, even within each module; and I chose my major because it perfectly complemented my career aspirations.

The programme has helped enhance my job performance. I now take steps towards self-improvement in my problem areas and continuously learn by setting personal benchmarks and reviewing them regularly. Learning leads to a better quality of life, boosts confidence and aids in personal development.

I would recommend my University to others as my overall experience was fantastic! I made a great group of friends as my class was big, and we always had laughs with the tutors.

Thanks to my tutors’ help and the content delivered, I exceeded my own expectations by achieving excellent grades. The lessons are completely related to the job you want to do, and the programme has made me rethink what career I want to pursue because it has opened the door to so many higher-paying jobs!

Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2020)

I decided to study with Northumbria University at Kaplan in Singapore as it is among the top 1% of elite institutions worldwide*. I was also attracted to the largely assignment-based learning, which allowed me to better plan my time around my work schedule to complete and submit assignments. As for my choice of major, I chose it as it is related to my current job and I wanted to enhance my knowledge in the field.

The programme has helped to strengthen my job performance. With its assignment-based curriculum, it gave us a more practical education, allowing students to apply the knowledge learned in classes through the assignments given, which were similar to projects assigned at work. In addition, all the research done based on real companies or situations gave me much exposure to current market sentiments and trends, to learn and improve on some “outdated” practices.

Given the good reputation of Kaplan and its collaboration with reputable universities, taught by very knowledgeable lecturers, I would recommend Kaplan.

Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2021)

My first choice was Northumbria University as it is one of the largest universities in the UK, and its programme structure was suitable for me as a working professional. The subjects offered in the Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management Degree programme were diverse in scope and relevant to my current job in the Service industry.

While pursing my Degree, I had just started a completely new job after working for more than twenty years in the military. However, I succeeded in balancing the challenges of my new job and coping with lectures and assignments at the same time, which eventually led to me graduating with First Class Honours.

I would recommend my University to others as it is a widely recognised University with a good track record and the curriculum offered is relevant to today’s industry context. The lecturers are specialists in their own fields and are always willing to share their wisdom.

Northumbria University was my top choice because of the Degree programme’s industry relevance – learning the essentials of business strategy and management, as well as understanding how supply chain processes can be optimised, adds value to my current role as a continuous improvement lead.

As a leader, I can deliver better results for my organisation through the Japanese concept of kaizen, or continuous improvement, and the application of lean management. The effectiveness of my training programme has also improved with my new wealth of knowledge.

Another reason for my choice is due to its location – the University is in central Singapore, which made it optimal for my part-time study efforts. The overall travel time was not excessive.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management (Top-up)

Being a customer-centric professional and having a passion for the logistics industry, I chose to study for a Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management Degree.

My work in the oil and gas industry is very demanding, which means I often work long hours. During class hours, I had to leave the classroom to answer calls from clients and calls about work operations. Having to do this while the class was in session was not easy as it meant missing a fair bit of what the professor was teaching. However, the programme’s assignment-based curriculum, comprising self-paced research and project work, enabled me to get through this period of struggle and learn more effectively. Despite the difficult circumstances, I eventually completed my programme with Second Class (Upper) Honours.

On the whole, the programme has taught me several important lessons, including the need to collaborate well with clients so as to nurture better working relationships. The knowledge and skills that I acquired through the programme have helped me to build a strong rapport with my clients and established a more credible and trusting relationship with them.

Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2021)

I chose to study for my Bachelor’s Degree at Northumbria University because of the programme curriculum and its flexible schedule. Even while having to juggle between studying, a demanding full-time job, and supervising my child’s studies, I managed to complete it with First Class Honours.

Upon graduation, I was promoted to consultant, tasked with handling global portfolios, and received a significant increase in salary. Additionally, my company has agreed to sponsor my upcoming MBA Degree programme, where I have been accepted by another overseas university using my current qualification.

I would certainly recommend Northumbria University to others. It has maximised my post-college and career opportunities, allowing me to have a better grasp of my future.

Programme taken: Master of Business Administration

I was driven to pursue a Postgraduate Degree to fulfill a personal goal and to set a standard for my children. Completing the programme helped me achieve my aim to renew my existing knowledge and ready myself to embark on new role for any organisation I choose to be with.

The senior management in my company do recognise the value of my Postgraduate Degree, as I now get to undertake more responsibilities related to what I have learned. Furthermore, I get to apply the new knowledge and skill sets to my current job.

The start of the first term was challenging, but my passionate lecturer for the module, Leading the Engaged Enterprise, showed me how to overcome the difficulties and changed the way I engaged with the class for the rest of the term. This helped me to persevere and to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

My advice to those considering pursuing a Postgraduate Degree, is to exercise self-discipline and self-confidence – stay focused and finish what you start.

Programme taken: Master of Science in Management

The research I did on University College Dublin (UCD) confirmed that it would provide the business management skills I needed to augment my experience – UCD is known for learning and teaching excellence, and its good rankings globally. Additionally, I favour its research-led education. As such, I chose to study the Master of Science in Management with UCD.

The programme has helped me to conceptualise, evaluate and execute my business strategies. While researching my thesis topic, I got to explore effective leadership styles practised by Singaporean SMEs, aimed at developing or expanding their businesses internationally. The research journey was enriching and augmented my knowledge and skills in dealing with local SMEs. My studies have also helped reaffirm my professional abilities.

I started the programme a few months before my new job, which required me to juggle travel time and family. Then, I lost my job during the COVID-19 lockdown – both my confidence and finances dipped. However, I found the determination to see my programme through to the finish line.

Eventually, I launched two businesses before graduation with the knowledge gained from the module, Global Strategic Management. The module taught me to apply the “red ocean strategy” and “blue ocean strategy” (which means “doing what others do at a cheaper price” and “producing things that others cannot”) in business. This led me to launch a student care centre offering unique services instead of a standard childcare centre.

Considering everything, I would recommend UCD to any one of my friends.
