I chose to study Psychology and Criminology to acquire practical knowledge that would improve my skills and competitive value, aiming for an eventual Master’s Degree.

As a part-time student, a quality education could immediately impact my career. Hence, the Psychology and Criminology Double Major Degree programme provided by Murdoch University was perfect. Both subjects enhanced my understanding of human behaviour, thus improving my response time to potential threats. This allowed me to study and apply what I had learnt to my work concurrently.

In addition, Murdoch University Psychology Degrees being recognised by the Australian Psychology Society (APS) has given me an edge due to their recognition.

After great effort and numerous sacrifices, my work has paid dividends. The Psychology: Individual Differences and Performance, and Criminal Behaviour modules in particular, have directly contributed to my work. Having to juggle between my job and studies has also reinforced my time management skills.

I found that this programme has raised the bar of my career performance and given me a competitive advantage in the market. Thus I would highly recommend studying with Murdoch University.

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.

Being a go-getter in life, I was determined to stay relevant and improve my skills and career prospects by pursuing my passion in Human Resource Management and Criminology. However, these ambitions would often be postponed to focus on other life commitments, and there was no institution that provided my preferred Degree.

Fortunately, I discovered the variety of programmes offered by Murdoch University, which included the Human Resource Management and Criminology Double Major Degree programme. It was the perfect opportunity to study what I was interested in and distinguish myself competitively with double specialisms.

With the flexible study plan from Murdoch University, I could work full-time and develop my career simultaneously. The experienced lecturers took a pragmatic approach to teaching with real-life examples, which enriched my understanding of the subjects and streamlined my learning.

Considering these advantages, I highly recommend Murdoch University as a renowned institution that provides quality education, offering useful skills that can lead to lucrative employment opportunities.

Fresh out of Ngee Ann Poly, I realised that a Degree was necessary in Singapore, and decided to progress my education to improve my employment and salary prospects. To ensure my investment would pay off, I chose to study with Murdoch University – a well-known and accredited institution.

The Degree programme has been instrumental to my current role as a producer/writer of radio ads. I have acquired essential skills, imparted to me by qualified lecturers with industry experience who shared their knowledgeable insights and work experiences with us, to give us an in-depth view of the topic.

It also helps that Murdoch University at Kaplan was conveniently located in central Singapore, and that classes were available after working hours so that I could attend while working full-time. Overall, my learning journey has been an efficient and productive one, and I recommend Murdoch University to others.

I graduated from Nanyang Polytechnic with a Diploma in Business Management. While my peers went overseas or to other institutions, I decided to search for something locally that would fit my needs.

I chose to take up a Double Major in Psychology and Management because the Degree programme allows me to study people-related topics. Equipped with this field of knowledge, I could then influence the lives of youths and improve on my interactions with them.

I have chosen to study with Murdoch University due to its global reputation. As an educator, I believe I can have positive impact on children and parents by applying the knowledge and skills gained from this Degree programme.

What I appreciate most is the nurturing learning environment, where lecturers constantly encourage us to ask questions. In addition, the small class size opens up abundant opportunities for everyone to participate and grow together. As Psychology focuses on building my understanding of human dynamics in the workplace, I believe that the skills gained will go far in helping me easily connect with fellow educators in Singapore.
