Wee Sing Hee (Mervyn)

I enjoyed doing the Hospitality course at Empyrean. It has been a wonderful year for me.

The materials I studied at Empyrean are very useful and applicable. I am happy that I can apply what I learnt to my work. I felt lucky that I have a good lecturer (Amar), who always made everything very clear and therefore I have less confusion about the lecture and assessments. I have recommended Empyrean to two of my friends who wanted to do a Hospitality course because I know they can study real knowledge and gain some working experience with Empyrean.

My agent was very helpful when I first wanted to enrol the course and I have been keeping in touch with them.

Yun-Li Huang (Umi)

I am doing a Commercial Cookery course and this is my third term at Empyrean. At the beginning of the course, I had some difficulties with the language. However, the lecturers at Empyrean are very patient and they always go through the study materials with students in details and make sure students can understand. I feel grateful for their patience.

Now I am working at the Raffles Hotel and I am happy that I can apply a lot of things I learnt to my actual work. I recommended Empyrean to one of my friends, and she is also doing a Cookery course at Empyrean.

Blue provided thorough and great service to students, so I always recommend Blue to my friends if they need any service in regards to school application and visa. I have been in contact with Blue.

I think I have learnt a lot from the Business Course in Empyrean. The way of teaching is very different here from that back in my country. I was actually quite stressed when I first started the course. But Kate (the lecturer) is always willing to help us and she uses case studies to help us get better understandings of the theories. I believe I could adapt to this new learning environment very soon.

I know that without the course and certificate as well as the opportunities that Empyrean provided, I would not be able to gain an employment that easy.
