Balancing work, studies and family is never easy. But Mr Ng Jun Da, 28, he is unfazed.
The elder of two children graduated in 2004 with a Diploma in Business Informatics from Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP).
In 2010, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Business Computing from Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS).
The degree was awarded by the University of Bradford, UK, and Mr Ng obtained a Second Class Honours (First Division) qualification.
"After graduating from NYP, I could further my education only in 2008 because I could not afford the course fees before that," said the IT consultant who took up a scholarship programme offered by his then-employer.
"The provision for direct entry to the second year of studies was my main reason for choosing the degree course.
"I also chose MDIS because my company recognises its academic standards and certi cates, and because I could complete the course as a parttime student.
"One of the fun aspects of the course was an exchange programme in Bradford, UK, which made it possible for me to meet people from different industries. The exchange programme was an eye-opening experience, giving me a taste of life overseas.
