“Starting college education is thrilling as it marks a new phase in my life with exciting opportunities to pick up fresh learning experiences and make new friends.

“It requires adaptation to a more independent style of learning too,” said Cambridge A-Level student Kristie Teng Ke Xin.

Her desire to study at DISTED ignited when she attended Camp Boss, a financial planning workshop for secondary school students, at the college in 2011.

“I was greatly impressed with the nice campus ambience when taking part in the camp. Now I’m back here with the determination to excel in my studies while enjoying new social circles.

“I’m also attracted by the strong reputation of the college as a leading provider of pre-university education,” commented the former student of SMK (P) Methodist, who aspires to take up engineering or finance degree studies in the UK.

SMJK Chung Ling Butterworth ex-student Teoh Jia Hou shared his excitement: “I’m looking forward to beyond acquiring an academic qualification.”

“I intend to be involved in extramural activities too to bring life to learning for a more fulfilling education experience,” said the Diploma in Accountancy student, whose choice of study discipline was influenced by personal interest and his mother who is an accountant.

Kristie Teng and Teoh were among the fresh students of Cambridge A-Level, South Australian Matriculation, business studies, accountancy, ACCA, computer science and psychology who took part in an orientation held on 2 January at the DISTED Yeap Chor Ee Campus on Macalister Road.

As for new hospitality students, they attended an induction programme at the DISTED Hospitality Campus on China Street Ghaut.
