Royal Holloway, University of London, 1st Class Honours Graduate (2020)

On top of the HR knowledge I apply in my current job, I am also passionate about International Business. Therefore, I chose to study with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Management with International Business (Top-up) Degree programme with Royal Holloway, University of London as it offered an opportunity for me to expand my knowledge about different business management practices in various countries and widen my career path by not limiting myself to a single specialisation. Also, RHUL is highly regarded for its Business and Management faculty.

I feel that the RHUL and Kaplan lecturers who taught us are meticulous and patient. They always provide their full support to us and will spend time after class to explain to us and answer our queries until we understand concepts. They also use real-life examples and share their experiences with us, allowing us to better understand specific modules or topics and how to apply them in our work.

Time management and self-discipline are important lessons I’ve learned studying this programme part-time, resulting in me being able to perform my job more effectively and efficiently within a tight timeline. Upon completing this programme, I found a new job as an HR Executive and received a 20% salary increase as a result.

Royal Holloway, University of London 1st Class Honours Graduate (2019)

What attracted me to Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) was its reputable ranking within the UK as well as worldwide. In-line with the prominence of the University of London name, Royal Holloway is renowned for its impeccable education standards as well as the quality of its teaching in the Marketing field. Another selling point of the programme is its healthy mix of assignments, tests and projects used for grading and assessments.

In addition to my academic achievements, I have learned to work with people of contrasting personalities, understand various cultures and deal with issues in lieu with work attitude mismatches.

As every module comes with different lecturers, both local and RHUL flown-in, this brings a variety of teaching methodologies and expectations in assessments. This has pushed me to be adaptable in approaching my studies, seeking to not only score well but to benefit from the knowledge as well. I feel that I have become more analytical and far-sighted in everything after studying here.

One reason why I chose to study with Kaplan was its centralised location, with 6 nearby MRT stations, it is very convenient for anyone. In addition, its wide range of programmes from various well-established Universities sparked my interest to learn more, eventually prompting me to enrol.

Among its various University partners, I decided to study at Royal Holloway, University of London due to its reputable global ranking as well as it being one of the most prestigious universities in the UK. The Degree takes about 18 months to complete, which allowed me to accumulate more working experience sooner compared to my peers who studied at local universities.

Both the Kaplan and University faculty lecturers were very helpful and responsive, assisting me whenever I had doubts or enquiries about my assignments. Also, Kaplan facilitated my education with a conducive study environment.
