Took 5 courses during and after I ORD, ranging from Marketing to Competitive Analysis

Why you should take the courses

  • Take this chance to refresh your brain
  • Receive certifications which can prepare you and help you secure an internship after ORD
  • Convenince as mostly are online courses (OTOT pace)

Why you should not take the courses

  • Pretty introductionary content
  • Remember the last online lecture you attended? Yeah, it isn't exactly the most useful and impactful
  • Would not actually apply if I have to bare the full cost

Is it true the refund/subsidy takes a long time (seen from online reviews)?

Hey, I don't remember facing such problem. If I am not wrong, I paid the subsidized pricing upfront (but it's quite some time back so I can't be sure) :)

Looking from the community, seems like some people actually used it before for online E-courses in NTU :)

I think anything that seems legit and reputable (from any of the local Universities) is worth doing. To get exposure or even making new friends. ALll these certs may be useful to land you in your first internship and from there, the next and next, until you get to your main passion!

I used before many many years ago. I took a computing certificate from NUS.

It is free anyway so just go for whatever interests you.
