Consider the POSB Further Study Assist to finance your dream of getting a degree.

As the adage goes, “it is never too old to learn,” and Yue Li Li is the perfect example of a Singaporean who embraces this spirit of lifelong learning. Li Li, currently 38 years old, may be older than many of her peers who are pursuing a Bachelor’s degree, but that did not deter her from going back to school.
In response to the Government’s call for skills upgrading, Li Li, under the encouragements of her supervisors, enrolled in Kaplan Singapore this year to pursue a part-time Bachelor of Science degree programme in Management that will be awarded by the National University of Ireland, Dublin. She has been working tirelessly in the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) for the past ten years and currently holds the position of a clerical officer within the organisation. A degree, she hopes, will open doors for career advancement in the future.
