① Data Science Course

Decision-making Using Data

This is a course to learn about topics such as Big Data, Data Mining, Crypto Currencies, Data Visualization, GDPR, Digital Encryption, and Artificial Intelligence to drive logical decision-making, with the support of the University of Cambridge Mathematics Faculty and Cambridge Judge Business School.

Data Science has grown rapidly in importance and plays a pivotal role in helping organisations leverage data, turning raw information into actionable insights.  It is an interdisciplinary field, using both statistics and computer sciences, to help solve some of the world’s most serious problems.

Look at the picture below.  Is this a rabbit or is it a duck?


One and the same picture can be a rabbit or a duck, depending on how it is construed.

Here, an objective analysis is required in order to prove that it is a rabbit or that it is a duck.  It is not convincing or persuasive just to say that it ‘looks like’ a rabbit or a duck.

Data analysis and statistics have become a focal point of public attention, with their broad range of use cases across industries and applications, from commercial, retail, legal, medical and even political fields.  Data Science has become an inevitable pillar within many organisations, including those of tech giants, such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon.


② Business and Entrepreneurship Course

The University of Cambridge has produced many leadership figures who were influential and took leadership to the world economy and business.

Students will learn about finance, marketing, logistics, import and export system and gain a better understanding of core business concepts relating to setting up a company, including budgeting and finance, marketing, sustainability and growth. The students will use analytical reasoning and critical evaluation skills to adopt competitive strategies and develop effective presentation skills, to deliver the perfect sales pitch. The course combines contemporary theory with real-world applications, through a focus on case studies and a visit to a thriving, successful business model. The students improve all-round confidence in using English communicatively.


③ Media and Communication Course

Media and Communication studies is interdisciplinary and may well be studied as a foundation for further education, in journalism, television production, multimedia design or graphic design.  It is characterized by traditions of social sciences as well as those of the humanities.  An important principle to Media and Communication is that we apply communication theories to “real” media and communication issues.

The course deals with the mediated communication in our society to gain insight into how the media work, and how communication can function as a means of control at societal and organisational level, as well as to learn about the internet’s importance for democracy, about the medium of television, and about principles of news evaluation.

Furthermore, we will learn about how attitudes are formed and how culture is produced. Through media and communication, we will be given the opportunity to practice how to conduct studies and gather information using different methods, and how to adopt a critical perspective on media as well as other information sources.


④ International Relations Course

The students learn key concepts and skills that can be transferred to a vast array of future opportunities.  The course provides you with an exciting first look into the interdisciplinary nature of International Relations.  The course also helps you explore key International Relations theory and examine modern case studies that follow up current areas of international conflict.

The students learn to find the important issues about international organisations and foreign policy and how those issues affect the current international situation.

International relations is the scientific study of interactions between sovereign states that is a political entity represented by one centralized government  that has supreme legitimate authority over territory.  In a broader sense, it concerns all activities between states—such as war, diplomacy, trade, and foreign policy  —as well as relations with and among other international actors.

International relations is widely considered as one of the major subdisciplines of political science,  along with comparative politics and political theory.   However, in addition to political science, it draws considerably from international economics, law, and world history, leading some academic institutions to characterize it as an independent or multidisciplinary field.  


⑤ Creative Writing Course

The Creative Writing course is designed for students who want to explore all aspects of the creative process, from writing and editing to critiquing, and much more.

The course helps students to release their creativity and writing skills to their full potential. It is focused on constantly moving from theory to practice to ensure that students explore every milestone with their own ideas and creativity.

The course emphasizes strongly on putting theory into practice, so the students are to be given the opportunity to practice their improved skills through the writing of a short story, but they will not be equipped with the knowledge of how to write better prose, etc.

Students participate in a series of unique curated exercises to flex every aspect of their writing abilities.  They learn quality writing skills like character building, dialogues, using memories in narrative, description, atmosphere, structure and more.  They work busily at writing, revising, editing, and participating in a collaborative process to push their work towards the finishing line.
