Would you like to gain an insight into student life at MBS? Simply get in touch with our current student Dia:

"I am Dia from Singapore and I am currently in my second semester of the bachelor’s program. I chose MBS as it is a very international university and due to the small classes. There is more focus on the students’ learning. I took part in the Pre-Bachelor study program to get back into the groove of studying as I had been working for a few years before pursuing my further education. This program not only gave me a great foundation to start my studies strongly, but I also made good friends. As a international student, I am happy to answer any questions you might have. I know how hard it can be navigating a new country!"
