Bachelor of Business in Business Law and Criminology (Double Major)
Murdoch University Student (2021)

I chose Murdoch University for its reputation and recognition, and because it offers a broad spectrum of attractive and relatively affordable Degree options.

Personally, equipping myself with a Double Major Degree could attract more job opportunities and greater earnings, achievable with the well-rounded knowledge I will gain in this journey with Murdoch.

Pursuing this Degree has also helped me in my previous employment with National Environment Agency (NEA) as an Enforcement Officer, as my Criminology major opened up more paths for me in enforcement and investigation.

As I work full-time while studying part-time, I appreciate that Murdoch University offers flexible timings for their lessons, allowing me a good balance between work, study and other life’s commitments. Lessons in the evening give me ample time to get off work and then tune in to the online classes.

I would recommend Murdoch to others, as it has been a smooth sailing journey for me, and I believe it will continue to be. In addition, Murdoch offers majors that appear distinct from one other, which would help students with separate fields of interests.

Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (Top-up)
Birmingham City University Graduate (2022)

As a working adult with numerous commitments, I had to ensure my Degree programme fit around my work schedule, and Birmingham City University (BCU) offered me flexibility with its night classes. I had always felt a calling to read law, but previously faced issues such as timing and opportunity.

The programme reshaped the way I generally perceive things, and I now find myself approaching situations very objectively. I also quickly learned that the human body is capable of mental challenge, far beyond our imagination!

As a working mother of two young children, the challenges during the programme were plentiful. Time was hardly on my side with the COVID-19 disruptions, and personal and academic commitments. Yet, in the end, every obstacle I overcame was well worth it. After having achieved my Degree, coupled with my diverse professional experience, I found there to be a multitude of options, both within and beyond the legal industry.

If you are a working adult looking to study law, but have commitments and furthering your studies overseas at the main campus is not an option, BCU at Kaplan is the perfect choice for a Law Degree. The flexibility of its classes and ongoing support, especially for mature learners, makes the process easier and enjoyable.

Master of Laws in International Business Law
Birmingham City University Graduate (2021)

I picked my major because I have always been interested in law, and the Master of Laws in International Business Law (LLM) at Birmingham City University (BCU) covers the areas I am interested in. Furthermore, I had established that BCU is a good university.

The programme gave me legal perspectives, further enhanced my analytical and evaluation skills, and helped me to stay current and relevant. Being equipped with legal knowledge helps me in knowing my rights and protecting my company.

I would recommend BCU to others, as the school caters to working professionals who wish to acquire legal knowledge by studying on a part-time basis. Furthermore, the LLM offers a good overview of the scope of study.

Getting back into study mode was challenging because my previous degree (MBA) programme was completed in 2000. I had to study outside of office hours, and the programme needed a lot of reading and research, so I was up late a lot. However, with the support of my work colleagues and the encouragement of my fellow classmates and lecturers, particularly my dissertation supervisor, who was really helpful, I was able to strike a good balance between my work and my studies.

Master of Laws in International Business Law
Birmingham City University Student (2021)

I chose to study the Master of Laws in International Business Law (LLM) programme with Birmingham City University (BCU) at Kaplan, as I am a BCU Bachelor of Laws (LLB) alumnus and it was a natural progression to upgrade myself. I was also confident in the academic team’s ability to deliver, as some of them had taught my LLB programme.

The programme curriculum’s relevance would be instrumental to my work since I deal with many international contracts. Some important lessons that the programme has taught me include International Corporate Law and Transnational Commercial Law, as these modules have enhanced my knowledge and are very useful in my work.

I do also believe that undertaking the programme has provided me with a good foundation for my current role and any future endeavors.

I would recommend BCU to others. The LLM programme has interesting modules, particularly for those who work on overseas assignments or contracts. The programme is useful as there is a continuous pace of learning, ensuring no time is wasted.

Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (Top-up)

Birmingham City University, First Class Honours Graduate (2020)

It was my passion towards law and the desire to return to school to seek knowledge and perspective that led me to pursue the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) from Birmingham City University (BCU).

After some serious consideration, I chose the programme from BCU as it was one of the few schools in Singapore providing a part-time Law Degree programme, and this helped me juggle between work, study and social life. As classes were held two to three days weekly on weekdays, I was able to attend classes while still having time for activities I love, such as spending time with my family and friends, and volunteering.

The deepened understanding of what I have learnt in the programme has greatly enhanced my efficiency and allowed me to apply them across various aspects of my work as a Business Excellence Assistant Manager in Ricoh (Singapore) Pte Ltd. My company has since entrusted me with looking into legal documents as well.

I would recommend Kaplan’s BCU programmes for those who wish to further their studies like me. I believe that one should invest in learning from young and I am glad to have embarked on this journey to pursue my interest in law. In fact, I have just enrolled for a Double Masters programme with Murdoch University at Kaplan.

Birmingham City University Graduate (2019)

Looking back at my choice, I have no regrets as I managed to get a job as a Legal Administrator with the Ministry of Health after attaining my Bachelor of Laws (Honours) Degree from Birmingham City University (BCU).

After much research, I had selected BCU for the affordability of its programme and Kaplan’s centralised campus location. Through studying with Kaplan, I found that it lives up to its reputation as a well-known and established institution, and I appreciate its quiet and conducive study environment.

As I was simultaneously working full-time, it was slightly challenging to juggle both classes and work. Despite that, I was able to do well on my very first attempt thanks to my lecturers, who did their best to simplify the curriculum and support my learning through their efforts and candour. They worked tirelessly to prepare us for our papers and I am glad to have been taught by them.

In addition to being intellectually challenging and personally fulfilling, a Law Degree also positions its graduates to be desirable candidates in various fields. I feel that studying this Degree has built my confidence and empowered me to achieve any career I aim for.

Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (Top-up)

Birmingham City University Graduate (2019)

My ambition has always been to acquire a law Degree to develop my articulation skills and confidence. Therefore, I chose the Bachelor of Law (Honours) Degree from Birmingham City University (BCU).

The programme has helped me to sharpen my critical thinking ability, harness my reasoning and analytical skills and deepen my understanding of risk control management and identification. The knowledge I’ve gained, such as in equity and trust law, has been very useful in my work.

BCU’s flexible programme schedule is perfect for my work commitments and Kaplan’s centralised campus location makes it convenient for me to attend the night classes. This is in addition to the friendly lecturers and helpful programme managers who willingly spend time after work to answer my questions.

Though I already have a BSc in Computer Science and a Master of Applied Finance, I believe furthering my education enables my professional development and lets me pursue my interests and aspirations.
