Kaplan University Singapore reviews

zac
Not sure about the other affiliated universities, the university that I was enrolled in, its program structure is weird. First, it is broke out in trimester studies, about 3 months each. However for the first trimester (in January), apparently you started off the modules you have enrolled while awaiting for exam results in your last trimester. Meaning, should there be a module which is pre-requisites for the first trimester, you will be dropped off from the module and thus you have wasted your time attending the first 2 lessons. In addition, I have cases where your school fees are paid to the local lecturers reading off the slides
