Tomorrow's graduates need more than just subject knowledge if they are to succeed in a fast-paced and changing world. SUSS's full-time degree programmes are designed with your future firmly in mind, as we strive to equip you with The Three H's: three key qualities that are essential for future success.
Head, Heart and Habit
The Three H's – Head, Heart and Habit – are the cornerstone of our educational philosophy. Everything we do, from our teaching methods to our programme structure, is designed to train graduates who are:
- Head: Professionally competent and job-ready, with strong applied skills
- Heart: Socially conscious with a desire to make positive changes in society
- Habit: A self-directed learner with strong work ethics and values
Why are they important?
Aristotle once said that "educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all". That statement is as true today as it was over two thousand years ago. Knowledge and skills are only valuable if they are employed in service of worthy causes and the greater good.
As one of Singapore's autonomous six universities, we believe it is our duty to prepare our full-time students for the workforce and to help them achieve their career goals. However, we also place emphasis on active citizenship. We want students who succeed not just for themselves, but for the local and global community.
As such, we go far beyond simply providing you with expert knowledge and technical skills. We help you grow as a person by engaging in meaningful community service that helps others while placing your professional training in its wider societal context. We also expose you to a broad and varied curriculum that encompasses diverse viewpoints and underlines the social responsibilities of organisations.
This commitment to social conscience is matched by our commitment to continuing education and lifelong learning. The advancement of technology and the changing nature of the workplace mean that knowledge and skills must be constantly upgraded, and that graduates must be adaptable to shifting circumstances. Our unique teaching methods foster an appetite for lifelong learning, helping you realise that graduation is not the end of your educational journey - it's only the beginning.
What we look for
For our full-time programmes, we hope to attract applicants who share our vision and philosophy of the Three H's. We want students who can look beyond themselves and see opportunities for improving the lives of others. We want students with a passion for learning, and who understand the need for continual self-improvement. If this sounds like you, then SUSS's full-time programmes may well be a perfect fit.
