The SUSS Difference
Proud to be Singapore’s first institute for lifelong learning, we champion inclusivity to bring education to all regardless of their age, qualification, experience, background – fresh school-leavers, working adults or silver learners. Our broad admission criteria to our diverse learning environment ensure that our lifelong learners have been and are given equal opportunities to develop to their fullest potential throughout life.
Grounded in our core philosophy of ‘Head, Heart, Habit’ (3H’s), we continually develop well-rounded future talents who are professionally competent, socially conscious, and lifelong learners with a heart to impact lives. We build experiential and applied learning to enliven and enrich our student experience through a host of global learning programmes, internships, entrepreneurship and service learning projects as well as student-led expeditions to provide a holistic education that nurtures empathy, broadens contextual understanding and deepens perspectives.
Beyond the individual, our social emphasis focuses on teaching and practising sciences in the service of society *. Our core curriculum, applicable to all our programmes, inculcates this core knowledge and understanding about emerging issues in the society in all our students and how they can play a role in their professional practice and community.
*This refers to the understanding and management of social impact, in relation to societal systems, people within those systems, and science and technology.
