Grievance and Dispute Resolution

MDIS is committed to providing prompt and efficient channels for students to provide their feedback and concerns/grievances.

 

Concerns/grievances relating to the students’ educational experience for both academic matters (e.g. appeals against results, expulsion, suspension, etc) and non-academic matters are addressed and resolved in an objective, fair and reasonable manner. Where MDIS College's procedures exist for dealing with students’ disciplinary and academic matters, then these procedures will take precedence over the grievance and dispute resolution procedure.

 

For student discipline-related matters, MDIS College Pte Ltd will determine the disciplinary action over any misconduct by taking into consideration the seriousness of the alleged offence, the risk or harm involved and if the conduct is detrimental to the reputation, interest or welfare of MDIS and its students.

 

Students seeking resolution of their concerns/grievances should follow the steps outlined below. These steps have been put in place to facilitate resolution with minimum delay and inconvenience to the students.

 

Step 1:

If you have any concerns or grievances, you should discuss it with the Academic Manager in charge. The Academic Manager will investigate and provide a resolution within 1 - 3 working days. Significant effort will be placed in seeking a resolution at this level.

As a young international student, I really appreciated the assistance and support from my teachers in helping me adapt to the new environment and culture. They are really caring and dedicated teachers who will not turn a blind eye to students in need of help.

The staffs in MDIS College are also very friendly and do their best in assisting with your enquiries and concerns.

I am confident to say that each teacher will do his/her part to discipline and motivate students to study by providing sufficient amount of homework as well as sharing tips on how students should manage their time

After more than a year of study in Singapore, I am convinced that MDIS really provides world-class education. The multi-cultural campus environment also allowed me to make friends with students all over the world.

After spending a year of my life in Singapore, I have witnessed the highly- ranked world-class education that the country provides. I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge. I have also experienced a multi-racial environment and made friends with students from all around the world.

Studying in MDIS College was really a joy and I cherish these fond memories I made in my time here.

I am currently in the Preparatory Course for GCE ‘O’ level Programme for 16 months. I find that the pace of teaching and learning is ideal as lessons are well-planned and there is good emphasis on examination techniques and practice.

The teachers in MDIS College take a personal interest in each student’s learning. They ensure lessons are interactive and engaging with interesting quizzes and make full use of IT to enhance learning. There is always a caring and pastoral approach and the dedication of the teachers is greatly appreciated.

I am truly grateful that the learning environment is conducive and allows me to develop my potential and aim for accountancy as my career.

Being an international student, I am lucky to have a chance to benefit from highly professional and well qualified teachers at MDIS College. The conducive learning environment has allowed me to excel in my studies and enabled me to feel confident to do well in my “O” levels.

The Interdisciplinary Workshops and experiential learning makes MDIS College an unforgettable and enriching experience that I will treasure greatly.

I enjoyed the academically stimulating discussions during tutorials and participated whole-heartedly in all the group discussions where I learnt so much about the different nationalities that congregate at MDIS.

I have made the right choice and highly recommend MDIS College for a meaningful and enriching educational experience!

My journey of being a student here at MDIS College is truly an amazing one. The curriculum of the Preparatory Course for Singapore-Cambridge GCE A Level was nothing short of remarkable. They have an excellent team of teachers and support staff, which are the keystone of making my experience here a highly enriching one. The tutors ensure that no questions are left unanswered. They are swift in clearing our doubts. They are never too shy to share insightful tips and bequeath their vast knowledge upon us, which is understandably uncommon elsewhere. Their holistic viewpoints allow us to address an issue from a multitude of perspectives. Science practical makes up a significant component of the examination and the college is able to provide conducive and comfortable science labs where we hone our laboratory skills.

Looking back, it was a prudent decision to pursue further education here at MDIS College. I am confident that the knowledge and skills that one acquires here will propel him forward in his quest for academic excellence.

The curriculum of the GCE ‘A ‘level is a challenging one. However, the preparatory course at MDIS College has helped me to prepare well and I am confident that I can ace the examinations .This comes only after the tremendous effort of all the dedicated teachers who have spent long hours coaching us and being patient and encouraging .The motivation and inspiration that we received has nurtured us into independent and confident students ready to excel in our academic endeavours.

What stands out most is the availability of the science laboratories where we can have hands-on sessions and experience our lessons coming alive in interesting experiments.

Above all, the friendship that we made here is awesome!

I feel that I have benefitted both in my academic as well as personal life since I joined MDIS College 16 months ago. The positive learning environment has inspired me to put in my best effort and to aim for good results..

The teachers of MDIS College are caring and work very hard to ensure that all students benefit from the rigorous school work. They always offer a listening ear and will assist to clarify our doubts.

The teachers never fail to give us their professional insights and demonstrate their expertise as they guide us through challenging “A “level examination questions. Through this rigour and hard work, we have built up our resilience and determination to excel in our academic studies.

With the right environment and hard work, there is no mountain too high!
