ASSUMPTION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS VISIT RAFFLES
Last week, a group of high school students from Assumption Bang Rak visited Raffles International College Bangkok’s campus to learn more about their future educational opportunities. Nacha, our education consultant, led the presentation about the university and its programmes particularly Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing Management, Visual Communications, and Game Design. Following the presentation, Fai, a Raffles International College Bangkok FMM alumni, did a Q&A with the students speaking about her experience at the university. Afterward, they took a tour to the Fashion Design classes, computer room, sewing class, and finally the drawing class. Overall, it was a good reception from the students as they learned a lot more about future educational opportunities available for them at Raffles.
