All good words have been uttered n echoed – evidence of agreement in unison. Everything’s said is neither for diplomacy’s sake nor out of politeness, but heartfelt thanks from the bottom of our hearts. It’s really an amazing learning experience for us, for me  – short yet indelible. Having gone through almost countless adult learning classes in the course of my work, the FMA programme proved to be a notch above all. So what’s the cherry on the top? The interesting syllabus need no further thumbs up. What’s compelling, your USP in fact, is the almost tangible dedication, passion, excellent attitude of the FMA staff – both academic and admin/support teams. So, Mark – Congrats to u for nurturing an ace team, a premium league to work alongside u. Thanks again for the wonderful learning opportunity.

I really enjoyed the course. I am slow learner and was worried that I cannot cope. With the trainers’ patience, they have guided me through the course and I started to enjoy and discover graphic design as an interesting subject. I would like to thank all the trainers for guiding me through. Thanks David Foo, CT, Ocie, Zul, Nic, Reny, Thomas and Idrus.
