Over 23,000 students. More than 105,000 graduates. A host of awards and accolades.
Time and again, SIM Global Education has confirmed its position as one of Singapore’s most preferred Private Education Institutes.
The Singapore Institute of Management (SIM Group) is the leading provider of higher education and professional training in Singapore. Founded in 1964 under the initiation of Economic Development Board, SIM offers its core services through three educational brands — SIM University (Singapore’s only private university), SIM Global Education and SIM Professional Development.
SIM Global Education (SIM GE) offers high-quality overseas academic programmes through partnerships with reputable international universities and institutions from Australia, the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK) and Switzerland. Its approach towards an all-rounded and holistic education experience is to support its intended student outcome – to let students bring out their best whether it’s in the classroom, or beyond.
There are year-round activities from more than 70 student clubs offering students ample opportunities to pursue their interests in arts, culture, and sports and develop personal skills in communication and leadership. Through such activities, students gain exposure, build community bonds and network that will benefit them later in life.
One such activity is the SIM Education Abroad programme which offers students opportunities to gain overseas exposure, from acquiring global perspectives on academic exchanges to building network for the future.
Heng Ying Zhao, an SIM-University of London student from Johor Bahru currently taking up the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Banking and Finance programme, shares, “My one-month SIM Summer Abroad programme was truly an enriching and unforgettable experience. Being immersed into the Korean culture, although just for a month, makes everything different and we also got to bond with students from all over the world.”
SIM GE’s campus is equipped with the latest technology and facilities to enhance students’ learning experience. The campus is enabled with high-speed wireless Internet access and the latest technology. Students’ study and leisure needs are also factored into the campus design.
More facilities, like a performing arts theatre, sport halls and roof-top tennis courts, are in store for students when the campus expansion plans are completed by end-2014.
SIM GE’s established partners include the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, University of London, RMIT University, University of Wollongong, University of Birmingham, University of Sheffield and University of Warwick. Programmes are taught by local lecturers and international faculty, and offer the best of both worlds to students, combining Asian perspectives with international practices, and a global outlook on industry topics and issues.
Students can also enjoy cost savings as it is more cost effective to take the degree in SIM GE in comparison to the actual onsite campus. In addition, SIM GE awards bond-free scholarships to deserving talented students, who can find opportunities to progress to higher qualification in Singapore or overseas upon graduation.
Mark Tiang from Sibu, was awarded with a Star Education Fund scholarship to pursue a Diploma in Management Studies from SIM, and is currently an SIM-University of London student taking up the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Accounting and Finance programme. Sharing on his learning journey at SIM GE, Mark says, “I am honoured to be awarded with The Star Education Fund scholarship, which has allowed me to further my studies at SIM GE and taken me one step closer to my dream. SIM GE provides a balanced mix of studies and co-curricular activities, so that it is not just about books and exams.
As vice-president of the Malaysian Community in Singapore Institute of Management (MCSIM), I am able to work with other international students across different countries, which has enabled me to broaden my perspectives and sharpen my leadership abilities at the same time.”
