SUSS will be launching a new suite of core courses to equip students with a set of values, skills and knowledge to develop them into adaptive and resilient global citizens who are able to meet the challenges of the 21st century. These courses aim to enable our students to appreciate complex issues in local and global contexts, enhance their understanding of individuals, communities and relationships, and empower them to contribute meaningfully to society through interdisciplinary approaches and experiential learning.

Many of the wicked problems in society today require interconnected and interdependent perspectives and collective collaboration. The SUSS Core enables students to thrive in a VUCA world by equipping them with interdisciplinary & experiential learning tools and processes, enabling students to synthesise knowledge from multiple disciplines to address complex issues. Above all, we deepen students’ socio-cultural competence and social responsibility to the local and global community through sustainable, reciprocal engagement with partners on real-world issues.

  • Support Insurance Case Management for Student Travel Insurance.
  • Support department events and activities.
  • Assist with other tasks and duties as assigned by immediate supervisor, as well as participate in university-wide projects and activities.

  • Strong analytical, communication and presentation skills. Good teamwork and interpersonal skills; and a high level of integrity.
  • Strong coordination, administrative and organisational skills, with the ability to manage and work independently.
