Raffles Fast-Tracked Programmes





Founded by entrepreneurs and industrialists as the Coventry School of Design in 1843, and in 2018 celebrated 175 years, Coventry University is a dynamic and outward-looking institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, impactful research and bold international partnerships. The university has established a robust reputation for pushing the boundaries of higher education regionally, nationally and across the world.

Through Coventry’s worldwide network of collaborators in academia and industry, the 50,000 learners studying its degrees in different countries enjoy access to global opportunities which ensure their employment prospects are enhanced.

In recent years Coventry’s student satisfaction levels and teaching quality have been rated amongst the best in the UK, which has contributed to impressive rises in every major university league table and a gold rating in the UK government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Coventry ranks 15th in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2020. It also earned the title ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in the 2019 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide; the guide describes it as “one of the most innovative modern universities, bold with its vision of what the 21st century student experience should be”.


At Raffles College of Higher Education, students can receive their diploma in 6 months, instead of 3 years.

While our competitors offer Diplomas that can take up to 3 years and Degrees in 4 years, we believe in quality over quantity and offer shorter duration courses for the same qualifications:

  • Diploma – 6 months
  • Adv. Diploma – 18 months (top-up)
  • Bachelors Degree – 12 months (top-up)
  • Masters – 12 months (top-up)


The programmes at Raffles are designed to incubate creative professionals and entrepreneurs in the design, business, psychology and infocomm security disciplines.

Taught by an international team of professionals, students are equipped with industry-relevant skills and the ability to interact with people of diverse cultures and nationalities, so that they may achieve career excellence at a faster rate.

Another important reason for the Raffles’ shorter course duration is our belief that an intense time span for studies cultivates passion and an industry-ready mindset. Completing your studies ahead of your peers presents you with more opportunities in the industry and propels your career forward.

Through our intensive curriculum, we arm students with creative abilities and practical problem-solving skills. We groom graduates who are not only team players but also independent-minded to pursue their passion.

Additionally, students are given the flexibility to commence their studies at a time convenient for them (JanuaryAprilJuly or October). Graduates can also choose to embark on their professional career at any one of the four windows. This not only maximises their employment prospects but also allows them to better serve the ongoing human resource needs of industries.

This is the advantage of learning at Raffles.
