Less than 2 months before my NS-ORD, my family encouraged me to continue my studies. I did online research and decided to study at TMC because it offers a specialised Higher Diploma course in IT. Now, I am studying for my degree with the University of Greenwich at TMC. The coursework assignments help me to improve in my thinking and problem-solving skills. I also participated in many workshops and events that allowed me to network and gain more insights into computing, and the trends in the ICT industry.

The programme provides an opportunity to get a solid foundation in disciplines such as Infocomm Technology and Computing in a well-facilitated environment. Lecturers are passionate, keen and devoted to helping students in understanding subjects, as well as gaining academic knowledge, professional expertise, and practical skills. The project module has also given me a great chance to choose the stack of technologies I like, and explore my area of interest in depth.

I came to TMC as an exchange student, and have learnt a lot more than what I did back home. I not only improved my English language, but also acquired professional knowledge. I enjoyed the school activities every month and made many good friends. My teachers are responsive, patient, and intelligent. They helped me both in studies and in life. I appreciate them very much!
