    Hi all cotters, just wan to give my 2 cents worth of feedback regarding some HR courses I haf gathered information and appreciated if there is more interaction with your own evaluation.

    As most kw SIM no longer offer Grad dip in HRM and have diversified into Bachelor in HRM. If you are still keen to take up the grad dip, my recommendation will be MDIS-Southern Cross University, instead of going to SHRI.

    I have just graduated from MDIS and obtain my grad dip. It costs ~$3000, 9 months weekdays evenings. The lecturers have very good industrial practice which is very impt if you wan to be a good HR practitioner. MDIS haf also a comfortable campus environment. I feel they put in effort to revamp the campus as compared to Informatics campus. Well SHRI is located in Tekka mall and the classroom is cramp. The location itself makes me lost interest and that's all I have to say.

    I am now looking for HR degree courses and here's my findings:

    1) SMa-Murdoch University
    Either you do single/double major and need to do bridging modules if your diploma is not recognised (like mine ). Estimated to complete in 2.5 yrs, cost ~$26000 no subsidy.
    The location is opp National Library. Although SMa occupies a building but it has no campus environment. Quite commerical.

    It really depends on employers, if they like you then even if u graduate from a not so well known Uni, they will still employ you. But have anyone heard negative comments about Murdoch Uni?

    2) UniSIM-Bachelor in HRM
    I just went to their open house n spend the whole Saturday there! Of course its a campus by itself so everything look pretty and no problem to adapt quickly. SIM as a whole operates like a business. Education is a business.
    The Jan 2009 intake is the 2nd batch (1st batch in Jan 200 and really I feel it is still "testing the water". During the briefing, the program head says there are still 7 subjects not yet being developed.

    This degree is quite specialised but also will narrow your career options since u will only kw HR and nothing else. I feel the University core modules is a waste of time. But it is compulsory to do so. With 40% govt subsidy, total will cost ~$14000.

    3) SIM-RMIT Bachelor in Business (Mgmt)
    This degree is a basic level degree which touch upon all functions of Business and then you choose your specialization eg HR, Mktg, Acct/Finance. RMIT is quite popular in SG although it is not a state university so the credibility and career prospects is rather secure.

    I am deliberating between Murdoch & UniSIM BHRM and their application is going to close at end Sept (and I m travelling at the end of Sept so basically I have to make up my mind asap!!)

    At e end of e day, I ask myself this. The purpose of taking tertiary education - for self achievement and financial value. So since I am depending on this degree to earn more money and advance through the ranks, what I am looking for in the degree will be the content and credibility of the school. Cost have to be secondary in consideration and it can be earned back, its just depend on how long.

    Hope this lengthly posting do you some good and I really hope if any cotters have more feedback regaridng Murdoch, please feel free to PM me.

    Or if any cotters is a current UniSIM BHRM students, pleassssse input your feelings as well.

    Hi kodomo, i think uniSIM would be better. But its what i feel. I'm taking my degree in business administration. I thought of getting a HR related certification too. but heard from many that BBA is enough as our modules touch on HR too.

    Singapore is always a PAPER country. everyone want to see that pc of paper in order to start hiring you. maybe they want to see HR certs. I too have difficulties getting my HR jobs. They either want u to do everything and pay u peanuts or look-down on u and not willing to hire inexperience freshmen.

    I was wondering, if the company wants good employees and not willing to give them their expected pay, even the employee later take the lower salary just because they want the job i doubt they would stay long... I though companies wants to keep good employees?

    What is wrong with no experience but always have a heart to learn? No chance given will not have experience gain at all...
    Hi Yue.yue, i guess most of the companies in Singapore have small HR team hence most of them are looking for more experienced HR pple. I'm working in a Japanese MNC (70 people) and my HR department is a one-man show.

    But anyway, don't give up. My motto is life is to learn as much as you can when you are young and with good foundation, you will be able to command the desired pay that you would like

    Do the other cotters have any comments from SHRI diploma?
