Top 2% Vice Chancellor’s Commendation for Academic Excellence Awards 2019 Recipient

I’ve always been interested in Psychology, especially with regards to understanding the human mind and rationale behind our actions. Like many others, I initially entered the field for the purposes of self-discovery. Over time however, I developed a passion for understanding the behaviour of others and using that knowledge to help them instead.

My educational journey has peaked with me receiving the Top 2% Vice Chancellor’s Commendation for Academic Excellence Award, and I attribute my achievement to the friends who supported me along the way. This experience has motivated me to take pride in my accomplishments and excel even further, and I’ve learnt to focus on outdoing and improving myself.

I believe that Murdoch University offers one of the best Psychology programmes for me. In fact, I decided to continue advancing my education to a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Psychology with Murdoch University. Not only is it a natural progression of my studies, it also provides me opportunities to study overseas. By doing so, I can be better prepared to undertake research roles in the future as well.

I plan to begin building my career as well as prepare myself to pass the Medical College Admission Test after graduating. Eventually, I aim to enrol in a medical school so I can achieve my ambition to become a psychiatrist.

I have advanced my career in the medical industry over the past 16 years, working in both regional and local subsidiary roles, and in different functions. Through my experiences, I felt compelled to enhance my knowledge. A Master of Business Administration programme would enable me to do so as it allows one to learn beyond their own trades, with the lecturers educating us about the challenges faced by other industries.

Seeking to expand my horizons, I decided to study this programme with Murdoch University. My responsibilities as a working parent of two meant that Murdoch’s flexible study schedules were necessary for my education, allowing me to balance my time spent on work, study and family.

The quality of the education itself was ensured by the experienced and knowledgeable lecturers, and their vast knowledge regarding sustainability, global business and leadership has influenced my thinking and values. Overall, the programme has made me rethink the concept of leadership, taught me to refocus on people, as well as helped me understand the importance of financial planning in business. I’ve learnt how to engage others and lead a team as well, and this information has supported me in my job. My exchanges with participants across various industries have also provided me a fresh perspective on business strategies to succeed in the market.

Upon completing the programme, I was able to secure my current job with Alcon Singapore. I believe Murdoch University offers an industry-relevant education, and its specially selected lecturers ensure the quality of its students’ learning.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Business in Human Resource Management and Management (Double Major)

Having worked for 15 years, I aspired to continue improving myself and to remain relevant as a HR professional in this competitive employment climate. As I often strive to do my best, I felt that acquiring a Double Major would be a good choice. As such, I decided to study a Bachelor of Business in Human Resource Management and Management Degree programme with Murdoch University as they are a renowned world-class institution that offers various facilities and study-support services that aid my education.

Being a working mum of 4 who juggles a full-time career with part-time studies wasn’t easy, especially when I had to reschedule my business trips to not conflict with my lessons. However, the flexible study schedules made it easier for me to manage my commitments. I also appreciate the supportive and professional lecturers who provided helpful study materials to students. They are professionals in their fields and shared real business examples that helped us to apply to our work.

Following the completion of my Degree, I found more employment opportunities in the Human Resource field, moving from the Engineering sector to Oil and Gas. This eventually culminated in my current role with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as Divisional Head in HR Shared Services, where I manage a team of professionals to provide HR expertise to the university.

I find that the programme has improved my job performance overall. The additional management specialisation complements my background as a HR professional, expanding the scope of my understanding from human resources to business as a whole.

With its recognition and established reputation, I do recommend Murdoch University. I believe that students should consider its Double Major Degree programmes as they are an optimal time investment that ensures you get the best out of your studies.

Formerly pursuing a career in hospitality, I decided to study Psychology as I wanted a fulfilling career helping children with special needs. Murdoch University is a recognised institution, and many of my friends have studied there and recommended it to me. Subsequently, I decided to take up a Murdoch Bachelor of Arts in Psychology Degree programme.

As it provides a comprehensive curriculum, my Murdoch Degree studies have improved my understanding of the psychological challenges of the children I work with, enabling me to develop better techniques to help them.

The lecturers play a key role in my education by being helpful and approachable, and teaching us in a structured and articulate manner. They are even willing to share about their personal work experiences as a reference point to advise us on our future careers in Psychology.

I believe that Murdoch University is a reliable and recognised institution which offers a broad and practical Psychology education for students studying mental health, one that is applicable to real-life scenarios.

My burning passion for accounting inspired me to strive to become either a company accountant or an auditor. I intend to persevere and complete my Degree first, before pursuing professional Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Singapore Accountants (SA) qualifications. Therefore, I chose Murdoch University primarily as they are accredited by the ACCA and provide exemptions from foundation papers as well as direct entry into CPA programmes.

Having a strong interest in numbers, studying Accounting and Finance seemed like a natural choice, and Murdoch University allows me to study both Majors at once. This is a notable plus point as it allows greater specialisation and gives me a versatile education, and Murdoch University offers numerous other advantages to support my learning.

For example, its flexible study schedule allows me to plan out my studies. As a part-time student, the ability to organise my learning means that my work and study won’t conflict and I can optimise my timetable to study efficiently. I am even able to revise online through blended learning.

Throughout my studies, I have acquired work-related skills, such as QuickBooks, to provide additional value in my job. Studying is never a chore thanks to our friendly and engaging lecturers who are always available.

Murdoch University is renowned with accreditations from several well-known organisations, and I believe its affliations make it an advantageous choice for students. In addition, I advise others to study a Double Major Degree as it provides you a strong competitive advantage over those without one by empowering students to be more innovative.

Aiming for gainful and lucrative employment, I decided to switch to an IT career, which I felt would also be a fulfilling experience. With its flexible study schedule, wide range of programmes, and the option to take any number of modules per trimester, Murdoch University was the obvious choice. The flexibility alone is advantageous for part-time students like myself.

Set on acquiring an IT-related qualification, I began with a Kaplan Diploma in Information Technology as my foundation. Through its completion, I had smooth advancement to my chosen Bachelor of Science in Cyber Forensics & Information Security and Computer Science Double Major Degree.

Seeing how computer science and cyber and information security go hand in hand, I chose to study both in a Double Major programme to gain knowledge and increase my opportunities in both fields.

My efforts have paid off, and my Bachelor’s Degree education has enabled me to develop essential skills related to my work. I would recommend students take up Double Majors to increase their employability and expand their job options.

Having worked in the Finance sector for 3 years, I decided to advance my education to a degree level in order to remain relevant. My drive to progress into a management role within this dynamic field influenced my choice of Majors. Therefore, I chose to study a Double Major Degree in Banking and Management with Murdoch University.

I felt that studying two Majors would provide me greater competitive advantage, and favoured Murdoch University due to its flexible study schedule. The lecturers were another plus point, encouraging out-of the-box thinking while guiding us every step of the way.

Overall, I have experienced better job performance. My improved critical thinking skills in particular, have allowed me to liase with several overseas clients effectively.

Upon completion of my studies, I was promoted from Executive Officer to Assistant Manager, and have been assigned greater responsibilities which I can easily manage as my Murdoch education has also imparted time management skills to me.

Studying with Murdoch University has made me appreciate its teaching methodology. Its Double Major programme progresses along at a manageable pace which encourages students to put in their best efforts, and offers twice the exposure and recognition of a regular programme.

Endeavouring to improve my education and hone my competitive edge, I sought a Double Major to broaden my career options within various industries and expand my horizons. I chose Murdoch University, a renowned institution that offered a Communication and Media Studies and Public Relations Double Major Degree programme.

The programme was taught by quality lecturers who were supportive and adept in their knowledge. They imparted skills directly applicable to my career in the PR industry and encouraged us every step of the way.

Of the various modules taught, I found the Campaign Management module to be most effective in my role as a Public Relations & Marketing Executive. It provides professional PR skills through practical experience, requiring us to work in teams to craft our own PR strategy and communication plans.

Thanks to the recognition of Murdoch University and my Double Major qualification, I have personally noticed that, since graduating, I was offered more employment opportunities than before and had no difficulty securing jobs. As such, I definitely recommend Murdoch University.
