Dear Parents,

If you are visiting this page, it means your child is considering SMU for his/her university education, and you are actively supporting him/her in the search process. At SMU, we recognise that parents play an important role in their children's educational journey. As you and your child explore the many university options together, we hope you will find the information that we have specially prepared for you helpful and insightful.

ALL PARENTS WANT THE BEST FOR THEIR CHILDREN

Mr and Mrs Goh spoke of the strengths of the SMU education that had transformed their four children.

1 Unrivalled Interactive Pedagogy

It is all about speaking up and sharing one's thoughts through active participation in the classroom. Your child will become bold, confident and articulate, ready to face the world.

2 GLOBAL EXPOSURE

Your child gets equal opportunities to gain global exposure. Whether through a 6-month international exchange with partner universities, an overseas internship or a global community service project, your child will gain new perspectives, enlarge his/her network of friends and get a chance to give back to society.

3 Internships

Working while studying allows your child to gain invaluable insights into future career choices and secure job offers before graduation.

4 Strong Employment Outcomes

Giving your child a career head start is SMU's top priority. To prepare him/her for the working world, we have in place initiatives such as career skills programmes, a job search portal, recruitment/networking sessions with prospective employers and career counselling. Gain an immediate advantage when he/she enters the job market.

5 INNOVATIVE CURRICULUM

An industry-relevant SMU curriculum gives your child a total skill set that consists of the hard knowledge skills, soft people skills and the 'heart' skills. This way, he/he becomes a well-rounded, socially and ethically responsible individual, making a difference in work and society.

6 DOUBLE DEGREES & SECOND MAJORS

Allow your child to increase his/her versatility with our highly popular choices of 15 double degree combinations or 41 second majors.

7 TEACHING EXCELLENCE

Our highly qualified professors are always looking for ways to innovate and improve teaching so that your child is trained to be effective thinkers and learners.
