SUSS scheme rewards part-time students free modules if they marry or have children

SINGAPORE: The Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) is offering its part-time adult students free modules if they get married or have children during their study. 

The Marriage and Baby Bonus Scheme, the university said in a press release on Friday (Jul 13), is in support of "Singapore’s continued focus in encouraging marriage and parenthood".

To be eligible, the student must also be a Singaporean or Singaporean Permanent Resident and has registered his or her marriage, or the child’s birth or adoption, on or after Jul 23. 

If a candidate qualifies either through marriage or by having children, he or she will be able to redeem two bonus modules of five credit units each, or one 10-credit module. 

The scheme is open to all SUSS students enrolled in its part-time conferred programmes, including undergraduate, law and post graduate programmes. 

Students on SUSS or company sponsorships are not able to qualify for the scheme.
