The Borneo Post - - HOME -

KUCHING: New or cur­rent stu­dents in Bach­e­lor’s de­gree pro­grammes at Sin­ga­pore In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Global Ed­u­ca­tion ( SIM GE) can ap­ply for the SIM GE Schol­ar­ship.

The schol­ar­ships are ten­able for the min­i­mum pe­riod re­quired to com­plete the full or re­main­ing course of study, as stip­u­lated by the re­spec­tive pro­gramme. The award cov­ers tu­ition fees, ex­am­i­na­tion fees, a fixed book al­lowance and other com­pul­sory fees. The schol­ar­ship does not cover re­peat fees and there is no bond at­tached to the schol­ar­ship.

Be­sides that, stu­dents en­rolling for SIM Diploma pro­grammes may also ap­ply for the SIM Global Ed­u­ca­tion Diploma Schol­ar­ship. Awards are granted to stu­dents with ex­em­plary aca­demic re­sults who pos­sess strong lead­er­ship, in­ter­per­sonal and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. The schol­ar­ship is ten­able for the min­i­mum pe­riod re­quired to com­plete the full course of study, as stip­u­lated by the re­spec­tive pro­gramme. The award cov­ers course fees only (in Sin­ga­pore dol­lars). There is no bond at­tached to the schol­ar­ship.

At SIM GE, the global arm of Sin­ga­pore In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Group ( SIM Group), stu­dents ben­e­fit from an in­ter­na­tional holis­tic learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in Sin­ga­pore.

With a rich tra­di­tion of aca­demic ex­cel­lence fused with a global per­spec­tive, SIM GE of­fers high- qual­ity over­seas aca­demic pro­grammes through part­ner­ships with in­ter­na­tional uni­ver­si­ties from Aus­tralia, the United States and the United King­dom, of­fer­ing over 80 pro­grammes. Its en­rol­ment stands at 20,000, with about 3,500 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents.

Eloise Low Xin Xian, a SIM GE scholar and 2014 Star Scholar, said SIM’s part­ner­ship with uni­ver­si­ties around the globe was one of the rea­sons why she chose SIM.

“SIM is known for its global part­ner­ships with in­sti­tu­tions from the UK, US and Aus­tralia that pro­vide a wide range of aca­demic pro­grammes,”

“I am glad that I have cho­sen SIM as my ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion provider as SIM pro­vides me with a holis­tic and vi­brant study life.” said Low who is cur­rently pur­su­ing a Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Eco­nom­ics and Fi­nance) awarded by SIM-RMIT Univer­sity.

SIM GE’s cam­pus is equipped with the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and fa­cil­i­ties to en­hance stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. The stu­dent-cen­tric cam­pus is en­abled with high-speed wire­less In­ter­net ac­cess. Be­sides a com­pre­hen­sive man­age­ment li­brary, there are also many in­door and out­door study ar­eas.

Stu­dents’ leisure needs are also fac­tored into the cam­pus de­sign. There are sev­eral cam­pus eater­ies in­clud­ing a Star­bucks out­let, a stu­dent lounge and a gym­na­sium. New fa­cil­i­ties like a per­form­ing arts the­atre, sport halls and roof-top ten­nis courts, are also avail­able.

Stu­dents’ ex­pe­ri­ences are also en­riched with year- round ac­tiv­i­ties by more than 70 stu­dent clubs. Through such ac­tiv­i­ties, stu­dents gain ex­po­sure and build com­mu­nity bonds and net­works that will ben­e­fit them later in life.

“Study­ing in SIM is a great ex­pe­ri­ence for me as I get to know a lot of friends from dif­fer­ent coun­tries. I par­tic­i­pated in many in­ter­est­ing club ac­tiv­i­ties such as Judo Club. I also joined many work­shops such as Ca­reer Suc­cess for In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents and oth­ers which were very useful,” said Tung Cher Yun, a 2016 Star Scholar and stu­dent in the SIM Diploma in Bank­ing and Fi­nance pro­gramme.

“I gained a lot of knowl­edge from th­ese work­shops and it helped me to be more pre­pared for en­ter­ing the Sin­ga­pore work­force in the fu­ture,” Tung added.

Chai Jun Wen, a Malaysian stu­dent cur­rently en­rolled in the SIM- RMIT Univer­sity Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness ( Eco­nom­ics and Fi­nance) pro­gramme shared sim­i­lar sen­ti­ments.

He said the most re­ward­ing as­pect of his stint as an Ac­counts In­tern at N- F Me­chan­i­cal & En­gi­neer­ing is the skills that he picked up out­side the class­room.

“My in­tern­ship has in­creased my em­ploy­a­bil­ity and given me a clearer idea of my pre­ferred ca­reer path,” Chai said.

SIM GE will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the eighth edi­tion of The Bor­neo Post In­ter­na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion Fair ( BPIEF). Held from March 11 to 12 at Vi­vac­ity Mega­mall from 10am un­til 7pm, BPIEF 2017 will have about 50 ex­hibitors with 75 booths hav­ing con­firmed their par­tic­i­pa­tion. The event is ex­pected to draw 8,000 visi­tors.
