New govt-funded university that specialises in applied social sciences called SUSS

What a suss-y name.

By Joshua Lee | March 17, 2017

Starting today, Singapore has a new autonomous university that joins the likes of NUS, NTU, SMU, SUTD, and SIT.

Formerly known as SIM University (UniSIM), the institution has now been renamed to the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).

What makes SUSS different from the other five universities, is its key focus in applied social sciences, and continuous lifelong education.

Is this the university for you?

If you aspire to work in the social sector (e.g. social work and early childhood education) or love working with people (e.g. human resource management, or family and criminal law), then, yes.

The University will also cater to people who want to engage in lifelong learning, such as adult learners who seek career transitions.

Lastly, SUSS will also continue to offer limited courses in business and engineering.

A check on the SUSS website shows that it offers 60 degrees via five schools:

Despite UniSIM’s name change, its daily operations, physical address, and contact details remain unchanged.
