Learners for Life
Learning at SUSS is not bound by age or qualification, experience or background as we believe that continual learning is key to staying relevant and competitive in our changing world. Everyone should have access to education to chart new paths and to build a better future.
Since its establishment, SUSS has been a champion in designing learning for life before, during and after university, and is proud to be the main Singapore university to deliver lifelong learning. We offer degree programmes in many disciplines; but, we also provide smaller chunks of learning, certificates that are stackable towards a larger credential, work-related modules or ones for the casual learner. For this reason, we had set up our College of Lifelong and Experiential Learning to be that gateway to offer learning in all phases of life. Anyone can tap on this lifelong learning journey – a holistic opportunity which we call SUSS LifE, founded on our open, inclusive admissions approach and multi-modal learning pathways.
As a pioneer in online learning, our expanding digital learning infrastructure has enabled our students to pursue learning at their own pace, anytime, anywhere, to meet evolving knowledge and skills needs of the future. Using our learning aids, which range from interactive study guides, e-textbooks, chunked lectures and mobile BackPack, anyone can attain higher education at SUSS with greater ease while balancing personal, work and family commitments.
Our education is grounded in our core philosophy of ‘Head, Heart, Habit’, in which we purpose to develop well-rounded future talents who are professionally competent, socially conscious, and lifelong learners - graduates with a heart to impact lives even as they practise in their professions and contribute in their communities.
Our student learning experience is rich and multi-faceted. Global learning programmes, industry attachments, entrepreneurship and community service projects, as well as student-led expeditions like our Gobi Desert Challenge, are some of the exciting experiential applied learning opportunities that we bring to our students.
Experienced academic and industry experts develop robust curricula and methodologies to equip our students to ‘learn today, apply tomorrow’. And, it is not only about applied knowledge, but key work competencies and soft skills that aim to better position our graduates for future employment.
Today, we offer about 80 undergraduate and graduate programmes in our five schools, available in full-time and part-time study modes to cater to the fresh school leavers, working adults and silver learners. Over 30,000 graduates have chosen us as their university of choice to date. Each year, we welcome over 15,000 students to pursue their studies with us. You can be one of them.Come and visit our website or approach us to learn more about our programmes, whether you are seeking higher education, career transition or brighter prospects. We look forward to seeing you at SUSS and partnering with you in your learning journey for life.
