M2 Academy

The University of South Australia (UniSA), in collaboration with M2 Academy, is now in Singapore! UniSA is ranked top 50 of new universities in both the Times & QS World University surveys and 14th in the 2011 research rankings in Australia.

They invited me down last Thursday for a tour of the campus. Guess what? It is located right smack in the middle of town - Orchard Gateway @ Emerald. Which is actually that tall shiny new building opposite 313 and Orchard Gateway. This makes it highly accessible for all students! *thumbs up*

We started the tour from the highest floor, level 11, which is also where the concierge for registration and general enquiries is. I love how all the rooms are sleek and clean looking, such a perfect environment. Even I, who didn't want to further my studies, am now tempted to enrol at M2 ;)

A wide variety of programmes are offered at M2 Academy this September, ranging from Business, Commerce to Engineering. More details about the specific programmes can be found here.


What is different about schooling at M2 Academy?

No more different faculties like how we were split up in Poly or other schools. They grouped us into different sub-schools such as Business, Science, Engineering, Design and IT. The CEO of M2 Academy has a different take on this and I personally find it very refreshing and brilliant. I quote him, "If you put an accountant with an accountant, they already think alike and there will be nothing for them to explore. At M2, we want our students to mingle and see things from a different perspective."

The CEO of M2 also said that he doesn't think being book smart can get you as far as having experience and social skills. You may have all the qualifications but if you can't communicate well, who would hire you? And that is what is different about M2. You will graduate with BOTH a certificate and the communication skills / experience. Through tons of hands on activities & projects, you will learn to communicate and to break out from your comfort zone instead of sitting in front of the desk all day.
