Our Students Say…

Iris Ng Li Shan I
4th year student,
School of Law
“I opted for SMU due to its unique teaching pedagogy and excellent facilities. I was—and remain—keen on SMU’s seminar-style lessons. Compared with the lecture-tutorial system, these allow for much more direct contact with professors and peers. Besides, I figured that the high degree of interactivity would put me in good stead for tackling working life. The other main draw was SMU’s facilities and location. Besides being excited about the new law school building right from the get-go, I was also drawn to how SMU is located right in the heart of the action: A short train ride from the CBD and walking distance from the Supreme Court.”
