My journey at Raffles started with the Foundation in Liberal Arts programme and later followed by the Bachelor of Psychology. Over the years enrolled in Raffles’ programs, I was lucky to have been exposed to many experiences that I believe were exceptional. Foundation in Liberal Arts formed a strong backbone for my tertiary education. I have seen myself grow both personally and academically at Raffles University, and I am forever grateful for that.
