Are Private Degrees Worth it?

Although students in Singapore today have a lot more tertiary education opportunities than they did ten years ago, saying that we have a relatively rich educational environment is like saying that Marina Bay Sands has transformed Singapore into a tourism destination that competes with Paris or London. The reality is that students who mess their O-levels or A-levels will have a rough time joining their chosen university course.

Education Degree

In our public universities, we clearly have not enough space to host everybody. Although students in bigger nations have long lists of universities to choose from and the opportunity to transfer from school to another city or state, it’s still pretty much down to NUS, NTU, SMU, or SUTD. SIT and SIM only primarily care for students wanting to participate in their affiliate university programs granting degrees approved by a university in overseas countries. Indeed, private tuition can be accessed at sites like MDIS or Kaplan. These colleges offer services from universities abroad. But is it the correct move? Here are a few advantages of having to study in a private university in Singapore.

A degree will open some doors no matter where it’s from

Many Singapore positions require at least one degree, and if you only have a certificate, you can either be rejected the position right off the bat or pay less than your peers who have a degree. For example, if you want to become an operations analyst at a bank, you’ll definitely need to have at least a degree. However, you will be employed by several banks no matter where your degree originates.

You can study part-time during NS.

People frequently forget that you can study part-time in certain private school degree courses, while most of the bachelor’s degree courses at public colleges are full-time. On the other hand, many private school classes are tailored for working adults and can be taken part-time in the after-work evenings or, in the case of army youth, for the day after their NS session if they manage to get a vocation of 9 to 5, that is. Two years of NS is a long time, and you might also be able to complete a full degree or top-up course (assuming you have a previous degree) before you ORD.

You’ll learn something useful.

Education isn’t just a sheet of paper, no matter what might have caused you to think that way. If you choose carefully, you would learn something useful from your course, so try not to slack off entirely or ask people to do their homework.

For example, suppose you sign up to research communications. In that case, you’ll learn a lot about making films, writing news releases, and editing publications, whether you’ve been to NTU or enrolled in the Oklahoma City University program at MDIS. And if your boss is knowledgeable, he will know that it is the expertise you have learned from the degree that matters.

Considering pursuing higher education in a private university? Look no further than Auston, a leading private university that offers many outstanding full-time and part-time degrees in Singapore, including business skills such as negotiation, skills, and marketing training.
