SIT has Overseas Student Exchange Programmes (OSEP) with Hallym University, Gachon University and Dankook University, South Korea. SIT students have the opportunity to spend one semester at these overseas universities, as part of their OSEP.
Our OSEP is open to year 2 students in their 2nd semester. Students with good GPA and the right attitude will be recommended by their course coordinators for selection interviews.
SIT also organises overseas study trips for our students. In previous years, we have taken more than 100 students to the United States, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and Australia on such study trips.
The trip to Silicon Valley included visits to Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley, Google, Plug and Play Tech Center, NestGSV and Oracle.
Students on the South Korea study trip visited well-known institutions like Yonsei University and Ewha University. They also learnt about technological innovations at Digital Pavilion and the Samsung Innovation Museum.
Students on the Japan trip visited the digital IT and electronics district of Akihabara and checked out the Epson museum and Panasonic Center Tokyo. They also got to live with local residents in Nagano and experience Japanese culture first hand.
For the Australia study trip, students visited the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Port of Brisbane and Australian Broadcasting Corporation. They also toured the Engineering, Architecture & Information Technology faculties at the University of Queensland, where they got to interact with faculty members.
We have established Overseas Student Project Centres in partnering schools in Beijing, Suzhou, Chengdu and Guangzhou in China. These include the Beijing Information Technology College, Suzhou Institute of Services and Outsourcing, Chengdu Polytechnic and Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic. Every year, about 40 students are attached to each centre for a two-week immersion programme. The programme includes cultural talks and studies, student interaction, visits to local enterprises and incubation centres, plus leisure activities.
