The only way to find out about the quality of lecturers is if they conduct course previews, which some private schools do to convince customers.

I’m looking at using my SkillsFuture credits to take some post-grad modules myself. Noted from my brief glance thru that there are some IT/science type courses that don’t even seem to be Social Sciences at all!

Personally, I'm less concern about the quality of the lecturers than the quality of the toilet paper.
You are equally likely to get bad lecturers in a good university programme, or good lecturers in a bad university programme. Plus, if you are the perpetually unlucky kind, the best lecturers will never be assigned to your class anyway :evil: :laugh:

I recall having to sit through a whole semester of lectures conducted by a FT academic but never understood a word of what he said. Mind you, it isn't about the subject content.
P/S: ok, I only sit through 2 lectures and spend the rest of my time drinking kopi in the canteen because I figure networking / self-study is a better use of my time.

I saw one of my former lecturers from NUS (David Lee) now teaching in SUSS. Also talked to another professor (Accountancy) who told me that he had lectured in NTU for more than 10 years. Looks like a number of lecturers have transferred here from SMU, NTU and NUS. Since SUSS is part of MOE - don't think it will let it fail.

I have a colleague who studied at SUSS - take scholarship under MOH. Being posted by MOH to our organisation for 1 year. SUSS is confirm recognise in Singapore. But I am not sure how recognise it is at overseas.

Considerations for all universities

1. Ranking i.e. tied to overseas recognition
2. Recognition by companies i.e. tied to potential pay a student is able to get
3. Recognition by students i.e. is SUSS preferred over other universities?

Would not wish to overgeneralise but these 3 criteria seem to be the natural criteria for most people when choosing a university.
