Ever since she was little, Atikah knew she wanted a career in the maritime industry – thanks to her father who was once a sea captain. But unlike her father, Atikah was passionate in the business aspect of the trade which eventually led her to enrol in SP’s Diploma in Maritime Business (DMR).
As a student of the Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA), Atikah got to witness how major shipping lines operate in Singapore’s port – something you would never learn in classrooms. Upon graduating from SP, the Unity Secondary School alumna was offered a scholarship with direct entry into University of Plymouth’s final-year degree programme in Maritime Business & Logistics. “An SP diploma has definitely given me an edge over others. I received module exemptions for the first two years of university! I completed my degree in just nine months, giving me ample time to get a head start in my career!” Atikah shares.
Just imagine an education which puts you ahead of the rest! With SP, you can achieve more. Visit our website at www.openhouse.sp.edu.sg and join us at #SPOH20 from 9 – 11 Jan, 10am-6pm for more information. #speye #singaporepoly
