Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), formerly SIM University (UniSIM) is Singapore's 6th and newest Autonomous University. SUSS's unique curriculum equips students with three essential qualities of “Head”, “Heart” and “Habit” to enable students to reach their goals, while making a positive impact in society. SUSS students are professionally competent and job-ready with applied skills (Head), are socially conscious with a desire to make positive changes in society (Heart) and are self-directed and lifelong learners with strong ethics and values (Habit).
SUSS programmes are unique in its delivery method. While other universities adopt a traditional lecture-tutorial format, SUSS's pedagogy – the flipped classroom concept – sees students preparing for their respective modules even before they attend the face-to-face classes via online lectures. The face-to-face classes are conducted seminar-style, with a heavy “hands-on” emphasis that includes presentations, group discussions and case studies.
Some unique features of SUSS's full-time programmes include:
- An applied focus with extended work attachment of at least 24 weeks
- Two modes of study – full time and part time
- Cross pollination with working professionals
SUSS's diverse student population can be broken down into three groups:
- Full-time programmes, targeted at fresh school leavers
- Part-time programmes, for working adults
- Continuing Education, for working adults as well
This unique system offers full-time students flexibility to change from day classes to evening classes should they be offered a full-time job whilst on their work attachment.
