Singapore universities have cited work attachment programmes as a key factor that greatly promotes graduate employability.
For instance, Nanyang Technological University students may do 10 to 30 weeks of internship or work attachment either locally or overseas.
This has been a proven formula for success, as seen by the fact that more than one in three Business and Computing graduates were hired by their internship companies.
Similarly, at the Singapore University of Social Sciences, work attachments are a graduation requirement for full-time undergraduates.
The SUSS work attachments last 24 weeks and expose students to “authentic work environments” which facilitates their learning, said SUSS in a press release.
