Testimonials

University of Dundee offers distant learning for us nurses in Singapore to take up this degree in nursing and health on a part-time basis so I find it very useful because I am a full-time nurse who come office hours like all the way in the west and I don’t think I can cope with weekend classes or evening classes so with this a distant learning program I find it very very suitable I can juggle work family and study at the same time so it’s brilliant.

Hello everyone I’m Farradilah, I am a nurse since 2005 and I started working in an acute hospital and then followed by GP clinic aesthetics, and assisting in daily surgery procedures, currently I’m working as an occupational nurse in a pharmaceutical company.

I think the lecturers of UOD are very helpful so they are not only there for us during contact time, during workshops but they are there for us anytime so we reach them directly through whatsapp or email, so if we have any questions related or assignment they will provide feedback for us in that way we know which area to improve so we can work better.

Being a nurse is very fruitful and rewarding career so I decided to take up degree in nursing and health because it helps me to widen my knowledge and I believe nursing is a lifelong career and I have a passion in teaching so right now I have been training new nurses who are actually embarking their journey as occupational health nurse so it’s kind of good to stay current and keep myself updated on new things especially in nursing so it helps me with my job.

In my class I’ve made new friends nurses from various hospitals, so exchanged numbers and we have a class group chat that we can reach out to each other, so sometimes I’ll just whatsapp them, like hey is the dateline again, or like hey, are you able to assess this reading materials or something like that, so its good getting to know more people from other areas and we exchange ideas and suggestions so yep its very good to be knowing a lot of people yeah.

UOD is in partnership with CSM academy and the staff in CSM Academy they are very helpful so they support us in terms of administration issues and also other questions related to student support particularly school fees, it is very very affordable because we are able to pay on a monthly basis and the instalment plan is very easy on us because most of us are not sponsored by our organization so I think that is one good point about taking our degree with CSM academy yeah.

The main reason why I join University of Dundee, CSM Academy is through a friend who is my colleague at work. When I found out that she tell me about CSM Academy is actually tally with my preference of what is University of Dundee is all about. The University lies with my expectation whereby it’s also more flexible where can study part time & work at the same time. It gives me the opportunity to end my study and reach my goal before 30. That’s one of the main reason why I join University of Dundee.
