To be eligible for admission to the Master of Training and Development (Singapore), a student must:

  • hold an undergraduate degree (Bachelor degree) of at least three years duration, recognised by NOOSR as equivalent to an Australian undergraduate degree, with a minimum GPA of 4.5 (using a 7.0 scale);
  • have a minimum of three years work experience in the discipline/field of training and development (such as but not limited to adult, vocational and community education, training and professional development);
  • provide an evidence-informed 'case' demonstrating relevant expertise gained from particular work experience, successful participation in professional development activities, and any learning acquired through experience in training/professional development contexts that can be aligned to a Bachelor degree with the same discipline learning outcomes. The 'case' is made through a portfolio of expertise that should include evidence of the following:

    • the undertaking of pivotal roles, such as leadership or content expert roles, in the development and implementation of significant projects;
    • implementation of significant workplace innovation through vocational training or professional development activities.

Applicants are required to explicitly connect these instances of learning to the Bachelor degree learning outcomes (see assumed knowledge below) through the development of a portfolio of expertise which will be evaluated by the Program Director.

  • cognitive and technical skills to demonstrate a broad understanding of knowledge with depth in some areas;
  • cognitive and creative skills to exercise critical thinking and judgement in identifying and solving problems with intellectual independence;
  • communication skills to present a clear, coherent and independent exposition of knowledge and ideas to other colleagues and professionals;
