Kaplan Graduate (2020)

Having done well for my A-levels and aiming to pursue a future in Accounting, I decided to major in Accountancy and Financial Management. Kaplan was my choice to further my studies as it has a great location and a diverse student body consisting of various cultural backgrounds. I would recommend this Diploma programme as the progression is short and sweet.

I began my studies with a Kaplan Diploma in Accountancy, later advancing to a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Accountancy and Financial Management (Top-up) Degree with the University of Portsmouth. This Diploma provides a very good foundation and has helped me throughout my studies.

The knowledge I’ve obtained has been relevant to my work, helping me enhance my job performance within the scope of assisting clients to maintain their books and ensuring that the accounting treatments comply with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). In fact, I was promoted from Account Assistant to Account Executive after just a year in my company.

The lecturers are very approachable, extremely engaging and able to explain the key concepts well. They possess in-depth knowledge of the subject and always try their best to help every student do well in their exams.

In addition to my studies, I was actively involved in various activities organised by the Kaplan Student Affairs and Graduate Services Office (SAGSO) committees, served as Vice-Chairman of Kaplan’s singing club (Pitch-K) and was a top 10 finalist for Sing-It Kaplan. I enjoyed spending time with my friends after class and had a very memorable experience at Kaplan.

Kaplan Graduate (2020)

I began my Kaplan education with a Diploma, which laid strong foundations for my transition into pursuing a Bachelor of Business Studies (Honours) in Management (Top-up) Degree with University College Dublin (UCD).

My path to acquiring a reputable and well-recognised business Degree was clear considering UCD’s Triple Crown accreditation. Also, the University has produced alumni across the globe, with its graduates making an impact in politics, literature and the international business world over the decades.

Participating in the 2019 Kaplan Kickstart Challenge, an internship programme for students to work at start-ups and contribute business ideas for a chance to win prize money, was most memorable. Equipped with analytical, business and operational know-how and knowledge from studying at Kaplan, I was able to apply this expertise while interning. As a result, I won the ‘Best Intern’ award in the competition and was offered an extension in my internship and, subsequently, a full-time role, giving me a head start in my career.

Kaplan Graduate (2019)

Intending to advance my knowledge of business operations and upgrade my interpersonal skills, I opted to study a Business Administration programme.

After weighing my options, I decided on a Diploma in Commerce with Kaplan as its centralised campus location made traveling convenient, which was significant as I was still working full-time. In addition, its partnerships with several prestigious Universities meant greater opportunities to further my education after graduating.

The programme has taught me about various business roles and functions, providing a great overview of how big corporations function as a whole. The Project Management and Marketing modules were exceptionally helpful in boosting my understanding of the fundamentals and theories behind my work.

The lecturers who provided our education were extremely helpful as well, concise in their teaching methodology and supporting students even outside of lessons. Even while working concurrently, their excellent guidance enabled my smooth and successful programme completion.

I would definitely recommend the Kaplan Diploma for anyone who wishes to build their career foundation.

Kaplan Graduate, Dean’s List (2019)

After completing my A-levels, I heard about Kaplan from friends studying there and learnt about the wide variety of programmes offered, which included Accountancy courses that I was interested in. As such, I took up a Kaplan Diploma in Accountancy, eventually advancing my education further with a Murdoch Degree in Accounting and Finance.

Studying with Kaplan offered many advantages, the most significant of which was the partial Degree scholarship I received for doing well in my Diploma programme.

My lecturers were knowledgeable and approachable, which helped to ease my introduction to the subject. In addition, they imparted positive study practices and life lessons, such as self-discipline, which have led to my self-improvement and character building.

Based on my experience, I believe that other students interested in pursuing further studies will benefit from the holistic education and development provided by Kaplan’s quality lecturers.

Kaplan Graduate (2019)

I chose to study a Diploma in Psychology as the depth of the field presents a broad range of potential employment opportunities, including overseas. After evaluating my options, Kaplan was my preferred choice due to its convenient location, squarely in the city centre.
The well-structured programme established an ideal balance of practical work to engage students without being overbearing. The qualified and experienced lecturers were also invaluable to my education.

Post-Diploma, I continued my education with a Murdoch University Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, which was a smooth transition thanks to Kaplan. I would recommend a Kaplan Diploma as an excellent start point given its structured programme and their industry-seasoned lecturers.

Kaplan Graduate (2019)

Having worked in the Events industry for a decade, I aspired to advance my education in Events Management as I felt it was a worthwhile investment and would keep me relevant and competitive in my role. As such, I began my educational journey with a Kaplan Diploma in Events Management.
Along with Kaplan’s well-planned study schedules and professional classrooms, I appreciate their friendly and understanding lecturers most of all. They understand and accommodate part-time students, especially working adults like myself, by making the subjects interesting and easy to understand in class.

The knowledge and skills gained from my Diploma programme, such as the social media and people management skills, have directly benefitted my career. Since its completion, I have received a salary increment and was offered lead roles by my superiors, assuming larger responsibilities at my workplace.

Thanks to the pathways provided by Kaplan, I have subsequently advanced to a Murdoch University Bachelor of Arts Tourism and Events & Web Communication Double Major Degree and aim to achieve a senior position in my company.
