Nurturing future-ready talents
As our students from the School of Languages and Education approach the end of their study, questions on the next course of action can be quite overwhelming for some. At MDIS, every step is taken to assist students in pursuing their academic dreams.
MDIS conducts talks to help students understand and set goals for their progression, as well as provide them with academic options. These talks range from subject-specific career opportunities to sharing by current students from the specific schools.
January 2019 saw the launch of our Progression Week at the School of Languages & Education. It kicked off with the various schools—MDIS Business School, School of Media and Communications and School of Fashion and Design offering a choice of academic options.
These school-specific talks were especially helpful for students as they could seek advice from the Heads of School and Progression Team in person. Students also had the opportunity to listen to current students enrolled in their specific programme, to know more about the employability outcomes that would better prepare them for university education.
In fact, some students were unable to decide which programme to enroll into until they discovered more details about the exciting opportunities ahead.
To conclude the session, students were prompted on their choices and if they still had any unresolved questions. In doing so, programme consultants were able to better understand their academic needs and goals, as well as provide them with the relevant support and advice regarding their education pathway.
Finally, everything we do at MDIS enables our students to advance progressively their chosen career and to be future-ready. That is why many students choose to study with us to further develop their skillsets through higher learning before they enter the workforce. At MDIS where lifelong learning begins, students can be assured that we have their best interests at heart.
