Our Courses


The SSC Learning Framework articulates the understanding of Personal and Professional Success. It consolidates and frames the various programmes and courses offered by the offices in the centre namely, Career Development, Entrepreneurship and Student Life into a comprehensive experiential curriculum.

The outcomes of developing Personal and Professional success is in tandem with the desire to implement a future-fit curriculum to ready our students for the VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) world and to meet the desired outcomes of the Student SUcceSS Centre.

The framework translates into a learning prospectus that provides students with the information and access to information on our programmes that would allow students to personalise their learning journey by selecting and undertaking the programmes best suited for their profile and experience.


Learning Prospectus Framework

The Student Success Centre (SSC) offers a comprehensive suite of programmes for our students and alumni to complement the academic learning journey in SUSS to support students towards achieving Personal and Professional Success. The programmes endeavour to facilitate the unleashing of students’ potential to advocate for their own wellbeing as well as others while doing social good to benefit the community and the environment transform and at the same time transform mindsets for students to be future ready and nurture the passion for lifelong learning. For full-time undergraduate students, completion of selected programmes is part of fulfilment of graduation requirements under Student Teambuilding and Work Attachment.

Aside from the Learning Prospectus, SSC designs and delivers platforms and programmes that allow students to cultivate social responsibility and global competencies, and provide the opportunities to engage in lifelong learning. Our centre also works across different schools and centres to facilitate our students in developing the SUCCESS attributes holistically.
