The University Of London (UOL)-Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) Regional Centre was officially opened on 5 April 2018 by Professor Sir Adrian Smith, Vice-Chancellor, UOL and Tan Soo Jin, Chairman, Board of Directors, SIM Holdings.

Witnessing the event were Dr Mary Stiasny, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International) and Chief Executive, University of London Worldwide and Dr Lee Kwok Cheong, Chief Executive Officer, SIM Holdings.

The Regional Centre which is based at the SIM Headquarters focuses on broadening and deepening collaboration with key partners and market development, both in Singapore and more widely across the Southeast Asian region.

Since the launch of the centre a year ago on 5 April 2017, the centre has extended and intensified its outreach to stakeholders in Singapore and in the region. Along with outreach efforts, the centre has organised a series of successful engagement events with the SIM Development Office and Global Engagement teams in Singapore and in the region.

“Underpinning this important initiative is our mutual resolve to ensure sustainability and provision of our University of London programme both in Singapore and other ASEAN countries and to consolidate and share our network of key stakeholders and influencers. Twelve months down the road, I'm happy to say that we have already achieved a great deal,” said Sir Adrian.

Under the aegis of the Regional Centre, two Masters scholarships were also launched last year for SIM graduates to study at any of the University of London Member institution.

In his speech, Dr Lee highlighted the strong demand for education training in Singapore.

“I think our great partnership will bring education opportunities to many more people and I look forward to leverage on this partnership and really make a difference to people and the community in this region,” he said.

The centre will continue to work with its shared constituencies in Singapore and the region and develop new programmes in SIM.
