Alumni Continuing Education Plus (ACE+) Scheme

Postgraduate Alumni Continuing Education (PACE)


SUSS Academy launches the Post Alumni Continuing Education (PACE) scheme to serve the SUSS Alumni in their mid-career years to upskill and continue their affiliation with the university in their lifelong learning pursuits.

From July 2024 semester onwards, PACE will be available for all SUSS graduates who are 40 years and above, and have not fully utilised the ACE+, Resilience or current ACE scheme. They will be eligible for two free graduate CET modular courses (up to 10 credit units) to be taken within five years from the commencement of the first course. These modular courses are stackable to our graduate programmes if relevant to a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Masters qualification.
