95% funding for PSB Academy diplomas


Hi guys! It’s been awhile… but I’ve been busy trying to attain work-life balance hahaha. As some of you might know, I’ve been wanting to continue with my studies (without leaving my job). So I’ve been looking up courses, info and whatnot online from various schools.

One school that caught my eye was PSB Academy. Most of you would have heard of it and want to know more, but don’t know where to start looking. Just like me when I was browsing through my options! So this blog entry is designed to help you out.

What is PSB Academy?

PSB Academy
With a rich history of more than 50 years, PSB Academy offers both full-time and part-time courses, from certificates and diplomas to degrees — all of which will help you advance in both your education and career as they are widely recognised by renowned universities around the world.

Of course, any one can easily say that without backup. But here’s what you don’t know:


This says so much more, doesn’t it?

However, it is not just what they can offer you in terms of end results when it comes to picking a school. Education should also be a well-rounded and fulfilling experience, agree? PSB Academy doesn’t just offer you academic excellence. They also have…

– A full-fledged campus that’s well-equipped with facilities






Spacious classrooms and laboratories, a Student Hub, courts for basketball and soccer, a huge library and even a gym. These are just a few of many other things you can find on the PSB campus. Take a virtual tour here!

– A well-rounded and vibrant student life

Leadership development programmes, Student Council, Student Associations based on your nationalities, sports clubs, interest groups, cultural and festival events, talent competitions, parties and more. You name it, they have it.

Forget the notion that it’s hard to make friends once you graduate from secondary school, as there are nothing but opportunities to do so here. You get to know loads of people and nurture your interests.

There’s something for everybody and you will never feel like you don’t belong.

– Academic staff strength of over 600 lecturers and associates

PSB Academy

People who are good at what they do. Besides being dedicated to student care and guidance, they also offer academic consultation outside of the classroom at no additional costs, personal counselling, disability support and more.

And now, I would like to introduce one particular programme that PSB Academy is offering: a Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Interested in the running of hotels and resorts, travelling, meeting and communicating with people? Want to work in fields related to tourism, leisure, recreation and hospitality? This course is for you and will help pave the way to a career where prospects are endless.


Some useful knowledge and skills (all of which are essential to the working world) that you will pick up during the course are:

– Financial accounting
– Accommodation operations
– Operation and management of food service
– Marketing for tourism and hospitality
– Communication in business

Other information about the programme:

1. Duration of 12 months (both full-time and part-time)
2. A total of 8 modules
3. For O/N/A-level/ITE holders

4. Full-time intakes 2014 : Jan, Mar, Jun, Aug, Oct

And now for the best part! The Workforce Development Agency (WDA) is now offering up to 95% funding for all part-time diplomas at PSB!

the hotel drama

Anyway does anyone remember this MediaCorp drama (The Hotel 大酒店) from 2001?? Was writing this post and got reminded of it.

The show revolves around a group of people working in a hotel and their jobs always seemed so fun and glamarous to me!! I even once thought to myself that I wouldn’t mind working in a hotel because of this drama hahaha. So PSB’s Diploma in Tourism would be a good place to start 😀

Delivery Man

Sponsored post

Attended a screening of Delivery Man with my brother on Dec 20, courtesy of Nuffnang! 🙂 Starring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders, it’s a comedy that’s a remake of Starbuck (2011). Out in local cinemas on 1 Jan!

“An affable underachiever finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.”

Delivery Man

Normally, comedy is the last second genre (out of all the main ones) I’d watch (the last being animation) in theatres because I tend to find them unfunny and not worth the money. Even on a whole, I rarely watch movies that are purely comedy. So I wasn’t expecting much from Delivery Man.

Turned out it was actually pretty okay and there was genuine humour at some parts! Not crude-and-try-too-hard funny but the good kind so that was a definite plus. To be honest, I did fall asleep at some parts not because it was boring but because I came from a Christmas party and was slightly tipsy (lol), but whatever I did see, I liked.

Storyline was fresh and heartwarming, the characters were real and likeable, and it was an entertaining flick with some pretty good moments. Not Oscar material nor the kind critics would rave about, but it’s a feel-good movie for when you are in the mood for something light-hearted.

My rating: 6/10

Dinner at Aston’s afterwards ^^ Photos look different from my usual because I’ve stopped using my digicam ever since I got my S3 which died earlier that night. So I had to use my brother’s phone but the pictures turned out weird…

I know, I know, I have been blogging. I guess you can say I’ve pretty much given up on it for now because I have a lot of other things to do and a lot of stuff going on all the time. And when I’m not doing anything, all I want to do is read and watch movies. Super love Goodreads and IMDB! 😀

Just look at how many events I have yet to blog about, and they are the ones WITH photos -_- Not forgetting sub-folders… Don’t think I’ll ever finish. Don’t even know who still reads my blog anyway. One of the extensions on my blog needs fixing but I can’t be bothered so I no longer have a view counter nor do my entries get automatically shared on Facebook.

Can you believe it’s the second last day of the year already? This is insane!
