University Route Made SIMple
Singapore Sports School-SIM University MOU
SIM University (UniSIM) is offering full scholarships to 10 elite student-athletes from Singapore Sports School to complete their pre-tertiary and degree programmes at the university.
Two scholarships, covering tuition fees and textbooks, will be presented each year over five years. In addition, UniSIM is sponsoring 80 per cent of tuition fees for eight elite student-athletes each year, during the same period.
UniSIM Provost, Professor Tsui Kai Chong, made this announcement during the Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony by UniSIM and Singapore Sports School on 30 April 2014.
Singapore Sports School Principal, Mr Tan Teck Hock, welcomed UniSIM’s offer. He said the partnership with UniSIM creates another important and necessary through-train programme for Sports School student-athletes as they pursue their sporting dreams.
“UniSIM adopts a flexible and practice-focused teaching and learning approach to deliver its degree programmes which are rigorous, multi-mode and relevant. These are factors which will be greatly appreciated by our elite student-athletes as learning can be tailored to meet the needs of their demanding training and competition schedules.”
Mr Tan said when a child joins the Sports School, he comes with the hope of becoming a sports champion at the highest level. At the same time, he knows that as his sporting career is limited, and he has to also achieve the necessary academic qualifications so that he can have a successful life beyond sports.
“I am confident that this partnership between the Sports School and UniSIM will go a long way towards helping this child realise his sporting dreams and academic aspirations. I know that he will bring great pride not just to the Sports School and UniSIM, but also to Singapore,” said Mr Tan.
