Choosing CIMP was an excellent pre-university study decision as it prepared me for university and life beyond that. All the courses offered are student-centred with real-world applications and it also gave way for an ideal work-life balance. One of the greatest aspects of CIMP is the teachers as they create an open and friendly learning environment. CIMP also enabled me to engage with people from diverse backgrounds and countries. The balance between coursework and assessments is an exceptional approach as it provides students with opportunities to improve themselves. CIMP has allowed me to grow academically and has reshaped me into a better individual. My experience at CIMP was amazing and I will always cherish the memories created here.

The one year I spent in CIMP holds a special place in my heart. Within that year, I was not only exposed to an excellent academic programme that equipped me with knowledge, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration skills, I also encountered lecturers and staff who selflessly supported my academic and personal growth. CIMP inspired me to constantly challenge myself to enrich my life and has led me to discover the importance of serving my community through community service and extracurricular activities. It's amazing how the diverse and fun CIMP community embodies a strong sense of community whilst embracing individuality. The year of growth, experience, and friendships is one that I will cherish forever. All the best to you, dear reader
