What’s new? Touch Yin Vannith Reviews the Open House at Raffles International College

Raffle-House

AT the Open House event hosted by Raffles International College (RIC), students from a number of schools could browse a variety of majors in the college’s curriculum.

About 40 participating students listened attentively as a guest speaker spoke about the subjects that could be explored at RIC.  I thought the clothing-design major sounded particularly enticing.

The participants were then taken on a tour of RIC.  We were escorted to one room full of a clothing scraps – a mess, frankly.  A speaker told us this was the clothing design classroom, and my eye was caught by a newly sewn green robe embroidered with gems.

It was so cool to see an internat-ional college with a design major in the Kingdom.  Other majors include interior design and business.

To get to RIC, just drive down Monivong Blvd, turn right past the Royal University of Law and Economics, then hang a quick left along the road 97 Sangkat Phsar Doeum Thkov, Khan Chamkarmon.

When I first showed up, I was entranced by the two heavily decorated mannequins standing in front of the receptionist desk. One was orange, the other one white.

Actually, if the speaker hadn’t touched on the other majors offered at RIC, I would have assumed it was only a clothing-design school.  I was really enthusiastic about studying at RIC, until I took a look at the school fees.  Really expensive!

The fees do vary by subject, but none of them are cheap enough for me.  Rich students may be able to afford it, but if you’re working-class, forget about it.

Only students aged 16 and over are eligible to enrol.
