Programme taken: Bachelor of Arts in Web Communications and Public Relations (Double Major)

This Degree is an innovative qualification that provides me with practical, theoretical and technical knowledge in the core areas of social media strategy, search engine optimisation, digital content strategy and web analytics.

With my Polytechnic Diploma in Advertising and Public Relations, I received 8 module exemptions and could complete my Degree in 16 months instead of 28 months. I strongly believe my University education will enable me to remain competitive in today’s workforce and set me for a successful career.

A firm believer of giving back to society, I have always seized opportunities to host my alma mater’s events. From being imparted important communication and “survival” skill sets by my lecturers, to emceeing at Murdoch’s graduation ceremonies, I am honoured to have had countless opportunities to hone and apply my creative problem-solving skills in real-life situations.

Thanks to the support gained at Murdoch, I am proud to be where I am today — a lecturer at Temasek Polytechnic teaching on public speaking. I definitely credit my Double Major Degree programme from Murdoch for the achievements I have unlocked.

Upon hearing my friend talk about Murdoch’s flexible study schedule, I was hooked. It was the ideal solution to balancing my work and studies. Murdoch’s reputation as a university ranked among the World’s Top 100 Universities under 50 years old by Times Higher Education was enough to seal my decision.

This Degree programme prepares me for media-related work and trains me to analyse how media reflects, represents and influences the world. I am confident that my Double Major Degree will give me the competitive edge and provide opportunities for me to excel in my career.

Programme taken: Diploma in Mass Communication

I was employed as a Media Planning Executive with a media agency during my Diploma studies with Kaplan and received more than 3 job offers during my course of study. Upon graduating from the Diploma in Mass Communication programme, I joined a new company as Account Manager with better salary prospects.

Today, I have progressed into doing Brands Marketing for a FMCG company. It was not easy taking up the Diploma programme while working full-time but it has certainly been a worthwhile journey. I will definitely recommend others to take up the Kaplan Diploma programme. My course of study has helped to expand my knowledge in the field and has brought me many job opportunities including career progression.

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.

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

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.
