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.
