TESTIMONIALS

Along the journey to pursuing my degree in psychology, I gained a lot of sweet memories that I never have before. In here, I met friends with different cultural background where we learned and worked together by sharing our thoughts and opinions in completing every assigned task. I would also like to thank all my experienced lecturers. They are friendly and always willing to share their knowledge and stories to us. Their valuable comments and feedbacks always inspired me to have many insightful thoughts on my assignments and future.

I can’t denial that the psychology course had covered variety aspect of modules such as cognitive, social, abnormal and organization psychology, and counselling as well. In which is a great opportunity for me to discover what I really want and fulfilled what I need. The contents of the course also backed me up and give me courage to go away from school and be independent and successful. Last but not least, I enjoy the learning experience in Raffles.

One thing Raffles has taught me is to never be scared of seeing your lecturer to get a little more details on your studies. With lecturer who tried their hardest to ensure we do our best and give the most in class, it has really molded me to always give my utmost whilst I’m doing my work now. For this reason, I am indebted to all my psychology lectures that helped me through this.

Raffles has witness my growth. Being only a naive person, I am now at least a person with education stored in my chest and brain. Not just that, I am also with set of skills that would not go wasted in my next journey of life. With that, I’m proud to say that I am a person with education, skills and now a scroll in my hand.

I like studying Psychology in Raffles University because I have the opportunity to learn practical knowledge delivered by lecturers who have immense work experience. I am also able to improve myself by socializing with my fellow university mates and picking up critical thinking skills through my classes. With the professional knowledge and experiences gained in RU , I believe that I will be well prepared for my future career.

Raffles University helped me to mould my positive attitude towards my studies. The lecturers listened to all my concerns and always provided the best options to comprehend the matter wholly.

Not only that, various activities such as neurology practicum, field trips & engagement with students of different schools around Johor Bahru changed my perspective towards public speaking.
