SIM GE partnered Lembaga Biasiswa Kenangan Maulud (LBKM) at its pilot Education Clinic on 18 March 2017 at the Suntec City Convention and Exhibition Centre. The organisation disburses bursaries to assist students financially in realising their education potential.

The education clinic, a new initiative by LBKM, seeks to provide A-level and Polytechnic graduates with guidance and advice as they embark on a tertiary education. The clinic responds to the needs of students and their parents, who find it increasingly challenging to navigate through the various options of furthering their studies. The clinic also functions as a one-stop resource centre to address various aspects of university life.

At the clinic, SIM GE Academic Division Director, Timothy Chan, shared about the wide range of programmes available at SIM GE and how students will be able to develop their skills and enrich their learning and global experience.

“LBKM is very heartened by the support of partners who have come forward to engage with students, and hopes to translate this into regular, more intimate clinics at critical points in the year for the benefit of all students.

“As we transition to the new economy, LBKM recognises that providing financial support is only the first level in assisting our youths. Through initiatives such as the education clinic, LBKM strives to keep relevant and continually provide enhanced support to our bursary and scholarship recipients as well as our students in general,” said LBKM President Suhaimi Salleh.

Alumni from 10 different universities locally and overseas, also spoke on their education experiences at the event. Among them was Nur Hanisah Khosni, a SIM-University at Buffalo Bachelor of Arts (Communication and Sociology) , who shared with prospective students about her university life at SIM GE.

“Sharing my experiences with them was very beneficial because being able to give a student's perspective is also important when one makes a choice in picking an institution for higher education. I was also able to network with other alumni from various educational and working backgrounds. The event proved be very holistic,” she said.
