Hi all, unisim is a private university, but MOE subsidise and is a local degree. So unisim students need to study roughly the same module as what offer in the public university. So can I say is the best of tier 2 in Singapore?

The subsidy is 55%. Same as what the students in public university enjoy. But if the unisim students study the same module as what the public university students study, given the same outstanding results, why still grade unisim student one grade lower?

UniSIM student are not one grade lower, but that is just the perception of the local biased HR practice. But it is improving and changing as the sch churn out more alumni and these alumni are slowly taking over the key positions.

pls note that unisim students are working adults and in terms of discipline, they are highly sought after. Try juggling with work, study and family. That itself is a good testament of their quality.

btw i am not a grad of UniSIM but a product of NUS.

So to summarise, upon graduation:

UniSIM Students = Years of Work experience + Degree
VS
NUS/NTU students = Exchange programe (still is study) + Intern (not real life work experience anyway) + Degree (maybe more well-known due to its older age).

Well, since both NUS and NTU have already been around for so long... the majority of graduates in the workforce would naturally be from these 2 schools.. Some of these graduates have worked their way up to becoming bosses or working as HR recruiters.. Given their positions they hold, they are able to exert some influence in the way graduates from the "other" universities will be received.... With the recent entrant of UniSIM, it is natural for NUS and NTU alumnus to defend the "superior" value of the education they had received... The same thing would be expected if UniSIM started earlier than NTU or NUS... Well, just have to wait a little longer till more UniSIM graduates enter the workforce to balance up the numbers....

The worst is the FT enclaves issue -- where a village head will hire his whole village into his department. Thanks to our "cheaper better faster" and "who's gonna build your flats" government.
