In keeping with Concordia International University’s mission to expand its programs and network, a meeting transpired with Concordia International University and Raffles Education Corporation on August 26, 2016. Raffles Education Corporation was represented by the assistant manager of their International Admissions Office, Mingle SI.

Raffles Education Corporation established its first college in Singapore in 1990 and has since then grown to operate 30 colleges in 28 cities across 14 countries in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the United States. The said 14 countries are Australia, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Italy, Switzerland, and, as mentioned, the United States of America.

Raffles is very well known for their design courses: animation, fashion design, video game design, visual communication design, interior design, jewellery design, digital media design, product design, assistant designer, furniture design, transportation design, and design management. But they also do offer other courses in business, technology, psychology, and education.

Another thing that makes Raffles Education Corp. special is that they have an accumulation of industry partners such as a number of big names from advertising, fashion label, department store, food & beverage, publishing, lifestyle product, and furniture industries.
