About the Role

The Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) is the newest Singapore government-funded university. Since its establishment in 2005, the University has leveraged on its strong relationships with industry to offer a unique applied curriculum for working adults that produces graduates who are confident, highly skilled, and job-ready. In 2014, it began to offer full-time degree programmes to fresh school leavers, with a curriculum designed to develop graduates who embody the 3 Hs: Head (professional competence and job readiness), Heart (social awareness and consciousness), and Habit (self-directed and lifelong learning).


To support the mission of the University, the SUSS Core provides a transformative experience for all SUSS undergraduates by focusing on educating the whole person – cognitively, socially, and creatively. SUSS will be launching a new suite of core courses to equip students with a set of values, skills and knowledge to develop them into adaptive and resilient global citizens who are able to meet the challenges of the 21st century. These courses aim to enable our students to appreciate complex issues in local and global contexts, enhance their understandings of individuals, communities and relationships, and empower them to contribute meaningfully to society through interdisciplinary approaches and experiential learning.
