Hear from our Students / Graduates

“I chose an education pathway at MDIS College to better prepare for my career goals. At the end of my studies here, I hope to be one step closer to my dreams.”

Joshua Alexandre Darmawan
MDIS College Student
 

“Throughout the 16 months that I spent in MDIS College as an 'O' level student, I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge as well as met people with different backgrounds. I was very fortunate to attend classes with caring and dedicated teachers who provided support as well as help when needed. The staff are genuinely friendly and do their best in meeting your enquiries and concerns. I am confident to say that each teacher will do his/her part to discipline and motivate students to study by providing sufficient amount of homework as well as sharing tips on how students should manage their time better. I have experienced the multi-racial life and made friends from all around the world. Studying in MDIS College was really a joy and it was truly worth of my time and effort!”
