actually MDIS is not bad you know.
it offers MASS COMM diplomas and certs which are recognised by all media agencies and all the media persons study their degree there. so give it a try. i know what u are thinking. its non-governmental and its sort of private rite?
well i went thru MDIS degree course and it was pretty sucky becos of the coordinator and some few lectuerers but then again you know you get that everywhere u go.

Taurus.

I totally agree with corines. MDIS is more recgonised everywhere else other than SIA. When it comes to the schedule and also other aspect in the course. You can't help it. It is the school system. Nevertheless, it does provide a large range of course that you can choose from. I believe you will find something you like. Think abt it. If u're gonna take ur Os, You have to wait till Next nov. And ur results in 2008.

But should you join MDIS, as they have several intake in a yr. It takes a shorter time and also by the end of next yr. You will get ur dip.

Right.

2. Is it ok if i got PSB cert den study MDIS dip after which then apply SIM deg, is it possible? or i must follow the sequence like MDIS dip follow by MDIS deg?

I'm from a local design school. There's only 3 you can think of. I major in something so different from what I am gonna do. Believe it anot?, I was from the fashion design faculty.

People may think do they really take such dip. Yes they do. I submitted to SIA my cert couple weeks ago. They have to review it since my interview was in July. They only take 4 days to get back to me telling me my training date.

Don't worry. Whatever cert ur holding and I do believe you have Os right? You may be too young nevertheless, you can still try. take it as a experience.
heyoooo.

i`ve decided not to go for this interview. i`ll go after i graduate from SP with my dip in aerospace electronics engineering. hopefully they`ll have a recruitment there again when i am graduating. i`m starting in apr07.

so i can take all these years to prepare. i`ve been taking french and will continue till i master it, gain customer service experience and get my diploma. by then, i`m sure i`ll be more experienced, more matured and more confident. i`ll make all efforts and whatever it takes, i won`t forsake my dream! :D

i can`t answer your questions but i would recommend mdis to you. it`s recognised by companies, even govt authorities. it`s not bad too, with it`s partnership with those selected univs. and if you have financial concerns, mdis is definitely cheaper than psb.

personally, i don`t think you should compare these 3 as they are going in different directions in business/management. business is slightly different from management too, the comparison won`t be very fair. however, if you`re looking it in terms of the universities awarding the certs, personally i think univ of bradford is a good choice. it`s pretty famous and well-received by uk employers. but that`s my opinion, of course. it`s just my side of the story. hope it helps. :)

also, i hope you`re not taking a dip just to fulfill SIA`s requirements.. it`s gotta be something you like and you want to study, not just the course that takes the shortest time, you know!

Sorry for the late reply. I mentioned earlier. SIA do accept pte dip. I'm from a local design school. I'm not exactly a crew, but i'm starting my training on the 25th Jan.

As for ur fren, cos' you did said she's from some pte dip? I heard from a fren of mine that her fren was from PSB. And SIA rejected her bcos of that. As for MDIS, I believe that SIA do tie down with MDIS for courses available for SIA crew.

So it is advisable to take a dip from NAFA, Lasalle-SIA, Raffles Lasalle, SIM & MDIS if you do not have local poly dip. Since you have a PSB academy certificate. I would suggest that you go for MDIS instead as it is more regconised for SIA and also other company. Moreover the part time dip only takes 12 mths or so. Full time is abt 9 mths I think.

But, but... you can try using ur PSB certificate. I cannot guarantee you anything. But you can try. It's a dilemma. You have to accept it if they don't accept ur cert.

Hi Koko,

Thanks for reply. No worries bout me. I have all the qualifications that they required. keke... But I do agree with what you said, MDIS is reliable since it is a local school with quite a reputation. My degree cert is from there too and SIA accepted it. :)

u mean u fly wif SIA before? :shock: Then are you still wif them, may i know how old are you?
Yes, flew with them for almost 6 years. So sad, I did not want to be Leading SS when they promoted me after 4 years, so I gave up the rank. Then one fine day, I was working with this Chief Steward(now IFS). He gave me a hard time, and since the aircraft was still on the ground, I took my bag and walked off. This led to discipline action being taken. I was grounded, and feeling miserable, I quit. In a way, I regret my actions. Joining Tiger will ease some of this emotional baggage I have been carrying all these years. I'm....33. There is no job, not in Singapore anyway, like flying. Give your best, everyone out there who is in there! :)
