SIM-UOL graduates at LSE in London

SIM-UOL graduates at LSE in London

October 12, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


When I first started at SIM, I was shown this presentation with the students
who were then studying at the LSE. And back then it was more of a dream, I thought “oh my god they must be
so incredibly lucky to be at the LSE”. Then I started working towards that dream, and in year three I was writing
my essay and now I’m here. And I am one of those faces
on the presentation. I think this degree is different from
the other degrees offered in Singapore. They need you to be very flexible
and independent starting with the course. I attended Singapore Institute of Management
and the support was fantastic. I guess most of the people who think
of a University of London International Programmes, think we have to do
all the studies by ourselves. But having done at Singapore
Institute of Management campus, we actually have quite a number
of support from the local lecturers. They would be there to guide you,
to support you in any way they can. Especially when I wanted to apply to LSE
they gave me advice as to how I should go about it, about my application
and I think that really helped. I chose LSE as my first choice and my only choice
to do a master’s, because if I want to do finance, I think there’s nowhere else in the world
that provides me with such a good resource. I had a very good experience in Singapore
when I was doing the UOL program, and I think LSE will really provide a very strong platform
for me to pursue my interest in finance. The Master’s degree
at LSE is very demanding, and if I did not take the University of London
International Programee, I would definitely be struggling right now. My University of London degree
has definitely prepared me for my master’s, because it gave me
such a strong technical background. You know when I came to the LSE
I knew the stuff that was being taught in class. I think the most important thing
that any student, who wishes to graduate
from the University of London, is to have the determination
and the willingness to learn. Be ready to enjoy what you’re studying. If you’re willing to work hard,
if you’re willing to put in the effort, it’s gonna be a very rewarding experience
beyond your scope of imagination. When I first started at SIM, I definitely did not think about
coming all the way to LSE to do my master’s. But after getting my first year results, I was more confident of coming to
the LSE to do my master’s.
