Low Student to-Lecturer Ratio

The low Student-Teacher ratio in our classes ensures personalised attention and teaching methods. Students are thus able to master concepts in their field of study. The intimate setting of the classroom also encourages discussion and interaction, which are made more vibrant with the diversity of our student population, with students from a variety of countries coming together to share ideas.

Living in Singapore

Our institution is centrally located in the heart of Singapore’s shopping district, at 2 Orchard Link, SCAPE. It is a short walk from Somerset MRT and easily accessible via Taxi and Bus. Our central location makes it extremely convenient for working professionals to pursue short courses and other requisite courses.
