My internships at Maybank and Deloitte were invaluable . I learnt how to engage with people in a professional manner , was exposed to real working culture , and developed important interpersonal skills . These experiences showed me what to expect and what I needed to improve in preparing for my career .”

Community engagement
We regularly partner with organisations like UNHCR , Teach for Refugees and Biji-biji Initiative to benefit local communities in meaningful ways . Together , we ’ ve raised funds for charities , improved our environmental stewardship , advanced access to education for refugees , and developed community-based organisations . These partnerships also allow our students to be actively involved and to engage with non-profits and social entrepreneurs to gain valuable work experience .
Education is a basic right but for most refugee youth , it ’ s a privilege .
