How does studying at Raffles compare with studying in a university?


In terms of delivery. there are similarities and differences between studying at Raffles or at a university. Generally, class sizes at Raffles College are much smaller than at universities, with attention to the individual being one of our main priorities. Being in smaller classes means that you have more teacher-student interaction and you develop closer bonds with the other students in your class. It also means that it's much harder for you to hide from your lecturer! So you'll need to participate and work hard...

The other main difference is that studying at Raffles College will bring you into close contact with students from all different disciplines. As you will be sharing classes with students from other majors, you will be exposed to other study areas and be expected to work with students from diverse fields. Then there are the lecturers who are also professionals in their fields. This will bring you into close contact with industry and help you explore the different job opportunities available. There will also be a good culture mix as students and lecturers come from various different countries around the world.

In terms of employer recognition, there are a few things to note:

  • We've been around for a while now, so we're well known in the design industry.
  • If you're a designer, what employers look at most is your portfolio. This is what will tell them about your potential to work with them.
  • Your creativity and level of technical skill. As our programs feature both practical and theoretical components, you'll be well equipped with both when you go out into the industry world.

You should also take a look at the curriculum to see if the course you've chosen covers the areas that interest you most. Ultimately though, the choice of school comes down to what suits you best and what kind of learning environment is going to stimulate you more.
