Diploma in Business
As a Diploma in Business graduate, I had a great and enjoyable experience studying here. My first thought is that the environment was great, and the management were friendly. I made a lot of friends as people here were just so friendly and engaging. The lecturers were amazing; some lecturers delivered their lessons in a really fun way, plus they were always ready to guide students with their assignments. And convenience is also one of the reasons that I had chosen to study here; the LRT station is connected to the college and there are many food outlets and convenience shops like KK Mart, Family Mart and 7-Eleven that are nearby. Lastly, I highly recommend the Diploma in Business course. I have learnt a lot in this course and gained a lot of amazing experience studying here.
