Take Off to Success with the MDIS Open House 2024

Success seems hard to achieve, but it is not. Success requires a mix of hard work, grit, determination and a positive mindset to achieve a desired outcome. Whether your desired outcome is to do well at every stage of your academic career, ace a specific subject or look for sequential academic progression from a higher diploma to a degree and master’s programme, everyone’s definition of success is different. However, the take-off to success requires considerable planning and preparation.

Themed ‘Flight to Success’, the MDIS Open House 2024 will be held only on Saturday, January 13 2024. Guided school tours are available all day upon request at the counter upon arrival. Visitors can explore MDIS’ labs, classrooms and facilities and talk to the Academic Faculty and students to learn more about the diploma, higher diploma or degree programmes they are keen on. And it gets even better – visitors are free to join the all-day exclusive immersive Fireside Chats and MasterClasses at SAMTAS Hall.

Tailored to inspire those looking to feel re-energised post-results release, the immersive discussion sessions are curated to offer a holistic perspective of life post-tertiary education. Key highlights of the session include a face-to-face meeting with Singapore entrepreneur Ray Wong, founder of handy, lightweight and highly affordable iontophoresis machines Raynatics and a robust sharing by Emil Tan, a well-connected and well-established Cybersecurity expert on today’s pressing topic of scams and how to immediately identify one.
