TMC is located in central Singapore, making it very accessible. I am deeply interested in understanding human behaviour and wish to enhance my knowledge by enrolling in this course. The lecturers are great and very helpful. They are also patient in guiding every student. I plan to further my studies by taking a degree programme at TMC. I’m also glad that there are subsidies for the programme; the subsidy from SAFRA has certainly saved me a substantial amount.

Education is important for everyone. The lecturers in TMC have given me their full support during the course of my studies. They even provided one-to-one tutorial sessions to make sure I got back on track for my degree programme. I’m honoured and grateful to TMC for having given me this great opportunity to pursue my education, and to be where I am today!

TMC provided more relevant modules as compared to other schools. The modules also cover different scopes of Psychology, which provides more options for us to decide which route to pursue in the future. As a part-time student, coming to school can be very tiring, but my classmates and lecturers made every lesson worth attending. My teachers have been most helpful, even assisting us with assignments over the weekends. I intend to pursue a Masters in Forensic Psychology or Criminology. This degree will bring me closer to my study and career goals.

I’ve been searching online and visiting various private schools to enquire. TMC suited me best as they answered all my queries. I enjoy the interactions with lecturers; they are supportive and helpful. I’m planning to join the degree programme in TMC. With this knowledge, I can help others in my line of work- not only physically but mentally. The quality of the teaching staff is one of the best. In fact, this is the best school I have ever enrolled myself in since Kindergarten!
