The Singapore University of Social Sciences’ Law School is expanding the depth and the diversity of its intake of students.
Besides gradually increasing the number of entrants each year, SUSS’ Law School is taking in an increasing number of polytechnic graduates.
This year, the school admitted 29 applicants from polytechnics, out of an intake of 68 across the undergraduate course and Juris Doctor programme.
The school’s other applicants include degree holders, International Baccalaureate diploma holders, and A-level holders.
At SUSS Law School, the average age of students is the late 30s. They include working adults like counsellors, paralegals, police and prison officers, and social workers.
Students need a grade point average of at least 3.5 upon graduation to qualify as professional lawyers, just like law graduates from the National University of Singapore and Singapore Management University.
