Graduate with a Mass Comm degree in one year


If the thought of toiling for another 3-5 years in Uni scares you when you think back on all the blood, sweat, and tears shed in your Poly years, I hear you. Unfortunately, in Singapore’s dog-eat-dog society, paper qualifications are still super important – you’ve probably heard your mother nag at you to “study hard, go to Uni, and get a good job” countless times, and for good reason too.

Chin up, jaded millennial – getting a University education doesn’t have to be a long drawn-out affair. In partnership with the University of Sunderland (UK), MDIS is offering a one year Mass Comm Bachelor’s Degree programme at MDIS. Here’s what you need to know.


It’s 100% recognised for your dream job


Skills for your dream job at MDIS


The degree you’ll get at the end of one year is a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Media, Culture and Communication (Top-up), which is a tie up between MDIS and the University of Sunderland (UK). This way, you’ll enjoy a rigorous international programme while being close to your loved ones, and without the hefty fees of studying abroad.

And don’t worry about this degree being dodgy – the University of Sunderland was ranked 11th in The Guardian University Guide 2017 for Media & Film Studies, so you’ll be equipped with a set of skills that will prepare you well for your dive into the workforce. 

The media industry is a very diverse one, and here are just a few of the many cool career paths to choose from:

• Media Planner
• Events Planner
• Journalist
• Scriptwriter
• DJ / VJ
• Newscaster
• Broadcast Journalist

As the saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” 


You’ll do hands-on industry work


With a curriculum centred around four modules and one project, this degree course is purely coursework-based – which means you won’t spend hours poring over textbooks, burning the midnight oil to memorise lengthy theories when you have to get up early for work the next day. Instead, you’ll be practicing hands-on media work that will keep you up to speed for when you graduate and start working.

Set aside a little time to stay on top of your assignments and you’re good to go.


Mass Comm diploma holders get direct entry




Recognising the relevance of the Mass Comm courses in Singapore, MDIS grants direct entry for Poly grads who specialised in Mass Communications, Media, or Advertising. This means these diploma holders won’t have to worry about not getting into the course.
