TESTIMONIAL

LEE SIN WIN
Graduation Year: 2018 | Applied 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 were well explained, and they covered the basic subjects needed for credit transfer into the degree program in the future. I have learned not only the theories, but techniques to carry out research in psychology, and how to write reports relating to psychology topics.

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