The above article said the course is just one year. Unless they are 神童, how can they learn in 1 year part-time, what people learn in 3 or 4 years full-time???
It takes 2 hands to clap. Those students were probably thinking of "shortcut" when signing up. This is what happen when people blindly go for the paper rather than the knowledge.

To be a case trust member, government should ask these company to place a guarantee of at least 500K to 1M. It may sound absurd. But that the ways to gain the trust of consumers.
Just like those who want to operate 4D outlet.
Bro, like that operators of small time education biz certified by CASETRUST like myself will have to eat grass liao leh...
Before the flames start pouring in, no I do not offer diploma or degree programmes.
Such problems exist only because of the incompetence of highly-paid individuals in the MOE (read, scholars). I can tell you it is very easy to get an unaccredited programme registered because of the system.
First the school has a submit a VERY BRIEF write-up on the course to be submitted to the MOE (where they fail to properly check the credentials and validity of the course and college that awards the certification). It is more or less a certainty that it will be approved.
Next, the school will submit the approval from the MOE to CASE where they regard the MOE certification like a bible and the process is complete!

if each student pay 15k fee....total 800 students...that wld be 12 million dollars in the pocket for printing degrees that look really good.
but someone is spot on..if Spore really want to be an Educational Hub, these nonsense must be stop....hunt down this Benny Tay and "sha yi jin bai"....
Regulators and laws must be passed to better improve the control of licenses and spot checking.
