Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) celebrated its 15th anniversary this year, virtually, in light of Covid-19. The August 2020 celebrations saw Mr Lawrence Wong, the new Minister for Education and Second Minister for Finance, partaking to commemorate this milestone. Over the past 15 years, first as private SIM University to now as an autonomous university, SUSS has risen to the forefront of championing applied and lifelong learning through applied social sciences and be the leading university for social good. SUSS has enabled its students and graduates to make their mark in life and society, through its ‘Head, Heart, Habit’ educational philosophy which equips them with professional competencies that go beyond textbooks, social consciousness for the community, and the desire for an unending pursuit of learning to help transform society.
SUSS offers over 70 undergraduate and graduate programmes, available in full- and part-time study modes which are flexible, modular and inter-disciplinary, catering to both fresh school leavers and adult learners. It also offers a broad range of continuing education and training modular courses for the professional skills upgrading of Singapore’s workforce. Each year, about 15,000 students are pursuing their studies with the University. To date, over 35,000 graduates have experienced SUSS’s unique brand of education.
