Strengthen Academic Credibility

 

RafflesEducation places a strong emphasis on curriculum development that is relevant to industry trends and needs. The ultimate goal of an education with Raffles is to groom skilled professionals through the transfer of industry-relevant knowledge and technical know-how to succeed in the globalised economy. Raffles University System (”RUS”) is the corporate unit responsible for all academic matters.

 

RUS adheres strictly to a rigorous reporting and audit system to ensure quality standards and assurance, as well as operational compliance. A Senate is appointed to coordinate standards between the Universities. Harmonisation between the Advanced Diploma and Degree offerings is achieved through the Curriculum Review Committee and RUS membership on Academic Boards and Senate Committees.

 

The Group’s colleges and programmes are registered, accredited and certified by various government bodies, state and federal authorities. For instance, Singapore’s Raffles College of Higher Education (“RCHE”) was registered with the Council of Private Education as a Private Education Institution under the Private Education Act 2009 and granted a four-year registration from 13 June 2011 to 12 June 2015. RCHE also attained a four-year EduTrust accreditation from 16 January 2012 to 15 January 2016. The EduTrust accreditation is only granted to private education institutions that have met a stringent set of requirements defined by the Singapore Government, and this enables RCHE to offer its programmes to international students.

 

Through RUS, the Group grows its intellectual property portfolio by establishing new institutions, updating the curriculum, and strengthening its accreditations and academic credibility. Conscientious efforts are put into curriculum enhancement to ensure quality and relevance for students to succeed in the ever-changing and globalised economy.
