Testimonials by Course Participants

“I wanted to make use of my SkillsFuture Credit to study something meaningful. Hence it makes sense to study in a trusted institution like NYP and get the certification. This SpDip programme covers topics relevant to fund management and a one-year study commitment seems doable. The learning experience at NYP is very good, with good teaching facilities, e-learning modules and quizzes as well as great lecturers. The course is kept current with the use of content expert adjunct lecturers who have shared their current work experience and analysis of the current financial market and used many different materials to help us understand the topics. I also appreciate that we have Module Leaders who have worked hard to attend to our needs and queries to make our learning easier.”
