LEE SIN WIN
Graduation Year: 2018 | Psychology

First and foremost, I would like to thank my lecturers in my course. All the lecturers were very experienced, qualified and specialized in different areas of psychology. They provided me with exposure and a clear idea of my future in psychology.

The course and syllabus was well explained, and it covered the basic subjects needed for credit transferring into the degree program for future. I have learned not only the theories, but techniques to carry out a research in psychology, and how to write reports relating to psychology topics.

The assignments in the course was very helpful in challenging the students’ knowledge as well as opened the students mind to do further readings and research. Last but not least, I would like to conclude that my experience here in Raffles College Kuala Lumpur has certainly been worthwhile and fruitful.
