I began with
AIU at the age of 59 because I was too busy teaching in various schools in my
home country Singapore, and later in Indonesia, to be able to enrol for any
outset, I had my reserves about doing an online degree program but once I
started with AIU, all my qualms vanished because AIU’s androgogy was a perfect
match with all that I dreamed of in a degree program at the age I decided to
resume studying, and the busy work schedule I had.
recognized the long and hard work I had put in throughout my career as a school
teacher, and gave me the full trust in mapping out what I really needed and wanted
to pursue in my own degree program. Nothing was ever top-down and I had losts
of elbow room to research into my interests so long as everything I did and
studied was pegged to my choice of study and faculty.
flexibility AIU provides is amazing; all the real live social and educational
projects participated in, in my professional capacity as an educationist, have
all been recognized. All this had served to speed up my building up of credits
to give me the leverage I needed in my current curriculum consultancy work.
Which other university off-line or online, will ever give its students such flexibility
and such support?
This is the
second degree program I have completed with AIU. I almost gave up at one point
in my first degree, but AIU was timely in contacting me and giving me the
encouragement and moral boost to continue.
AIU’s guidance, and patience with me, I have now attained a coveted Masters in
Education degree, and am considering embarking on a PhD.
