Press Release 

Singapore, 19 December 2013Kaplan Singapore, one of the largest private education organisations in Southeast Asia, has come out tops overall in the JobsCentral Learning Survey for the second year running. Specifically, Kaplan was voted the best in providing diploma and degree programmes as well as professional training courses.

SIM Global won top place for its postgraduate offerings.

This marks the steady ascendancy of the institute in providing quality education to its students over the years (it made its debut in 3rd position in 2009, when the rankings first began) to the coveted top spot in 2012 and 2013.

Said Mr Leon Choong, Executive Vice President, Kaplan Singapore: “It is an honour to be recognised as the leader in quality tertiary education in a country such as Singapore, especially since this country is internationally acknowledged as a centre for learning, scholarship and research. The lecturers and support staff at Kaplan worked really hard to win this coveted title in 2012, and we have had to redouble our efforts to maintain that position in 2013 given the range of high quality of providers.”

“The award is an independent benchmark, attesting to the quality of courses that Kaplan offers. We believe that when we provide a quality education, it is only natural that we become the preferred choice for further education.”

This year marks the fifth time that the survey was carried out. The survey found that there are record numbers of working adults keen on furthering their education, and thus translate to greater demand for such quality courses.
