I choose Villa College as it is reputed to be one of the best colleges in the Maldives and well known for its capable lecturers. I was convinced that I would get the necessary guidance I needed from Villa College. I believe choosing Villa College for my further studies was one of the best choices I have made. Though the studies started during a pandemic, I am glad to say that the lecturers of Villa College have been working at their best to provide the finest education possible. The positive energy of the lecturers surely helped me, as well as my fellow classmates, stay motivated and try our best to reach for our goals. Despite attending lectures through a screen, I believe the college environment is beautiful with the utmost helpful and friendly staff and lecturers who are available to help us with our slightest doubts and issues. Blessed with truly knowledgeable and hardworking lecturers, who encourage the students and believe in them, I am extremely grateful for the choice I made by applying to Villa College.
After two remarkable years spent at Villa College, today I am proud to hold a Bachelor’s degree from the University of the West of England, which is affiliated with Villa College. Villa College is by far the best institute for higher education in the Maldives. The lecturers at VC are exceptionally skilled and experienced. They are not only knowledgeable in their fields, but they also developed a strong rapport with the students – one which kept me driving during the studies. Moreover, I would like to highlight the tremendous effort they put into our studies, supporting and guiding us at the most difficult times. In addition, Villa College offers the best nursing programmes, well-designed to cater for the growing needs of the health care sector. The BSc (Hons) Nursing programme from VC is well-structured. It enabled me to gain knowledge and skills that are crucial and beneficial in best performing my job as a nurse. Choosing VC for my bachelor’s degree is the best decision that I ever took. I look forward to completing my Master’s Degree from Villa College.
From the time I knew that I wanted to study psychology, I searched up for higher education institutes in the Maldives that offered the best education, and Villa College was one of them.
Villa College is a well-reputed college that offers a variety of high-quality programmes, some of them international collaborations with other educational institutes from different countries around the world. Villa College is also one of the first leading private colleges in the Maldives that has an abundance of facilities and lecturers who are experts in their fields, to ensure students are both knowledgeable and ready for practice.
‘My expectations could not have been higher’, I realized, after experiencing all these myself when I joined Villa College for my BPs (Bachelor of Psychology)! Course module outlines are explained briefly right at the start, and lecturers make sure students are aware of and knowledgeable about assignments and exams before deadlines to make sure they are well-prepared and work well in time to meet deadlines.
All course modules are being covered online currently due to the global pandemic though, and personally I feel face-to-face classes are much more effective. They are more interactive and allows everyone to share their thoughts comfortably in an open environment.
In addition to teaching, all first year and second year students were offered placements to gain practical training at different psychological service providing institutions in the Maldives. This educational opportunity provided by Villa College has facilitated students, including me, to gain an in-depth understanding of various practical skills and knowledge about the professional work environment, and helped me to gain perspectives on areas in which I would like to focus/specialize.
I have also taken part actively in the Mental Health Day to create awareness among people, and participated in several competitions that were held at Villa College. Some of the main highlights are the poster competition and the cultural day that were celebrated at Villa College.
The bottom line is that Villa College has truly helped me to reach new heights both academically and personally. I am glad I chose to study here!
I’m a twenty-year-old, who is passionate about the environment, women’s rights and in love with volunteer work. I have a typical science background with a bunch of school competitions under my belt. I am a first-year degree student here in Villa College studying Bachelor of Psychology. I’ve always been passionate about making a difference, and studying Psychology at Villa College is laying the foundations for turning that passion into an actual job! I enjoy studying, but the work in my module is not only enjoyable, but fun as well.
Because of COVID-19 all my classes so far have been online but I am so grateful for having such engaging lecturers who are driven in their work and be part of a student group who matches my passion. I’m excited to continue my learning journey with Villa College.
I chose Villa College (VC) for my studies because I wanted to acquire knowledge, skills and practical strategies to pursue my career in the field of teaching. The programme has already surpassed my hopes meaningfully the past year.
The Foundation in Teaching course that I am enrolled in has already helped me achieve structure, pure determination, evocative ideas, enthusiasm and a spring in my step. Also, I found that the coursework included in the programme are extremely relevant to be applied in the work-life.
VC has facilitated a flexible platform for students to study while working. Also, the lecturers provide great feedback and encouragement allowing us to apply skills when completing the coursework and the assignments. Additionally, I am impressed with the level of support offered to us by the lecturers teaching from afar, through the online platform during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even with the challenges of the current pandemic, the do-able pace of teachers has inspired me to be on top of my game.
I am really glad that I joined this college and I would love to continue my studies with the same institution which has been delivering an outstanding form of teaching.
Even though I started my first job right after completing my secondary education, I had always wanted to go for higher education. While working full time, pursuing my dream of higher education at that time seemed difficult. However, my decision to choose Villa College (VC), to study Certificate 4 In Human Resource Management proved otherwise as VC offers a flexible platform for the students who are employed as well.
I like the fact that the classes of my programme are held in an interactive manner and the lecturers are always willing to help the students. I especially appreciate how the online classes are held during the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m delighted to be a student of Centre for Foundation Studies and Villa College as this institute provides a supportive environment to successfully complete my course.
