Forging new relations: the 2017 SIM-University of London Achievers' Event

This is a tradition where the Singapore Institute of Management - University of London family come together to celebrate academic achievements

In 2016, we thought we had reached the peak by bagging 191 First Class Honours and 31 Topper awards. Little did we know that we would be having that extra scoop of ice cream on top of our sundae of achievements, with 225 First Class Honours and 46 Topper awards. Will we be getting that cherry on top and display another record-breaking, stellar set of achievements in 2018? Greed, in this case, is probably excusable.

Back to relishing the moment. The venue was abuzz with activity as the first influx of guests started to pour in at 11am, signalling the start of the Achievers’ Event 2017. This is a tradition where the Singapore Institute of Management - University of London family come together to celebrate the academic achievements of our very best students doing University of London programmes at SIM.

Like any family gathering, it was a time of catching up, getting to know members of the family whom we hardly knew, forging new and genuine relations, and leaving no one behind. (Pictured below: MSc students with Distinctions with ACCA's Sylvia Ong on far left).

Some notable colleagues who attended include Dr Maggie Cooper, Director for International Computing Programmes (Goldsmiths); Ms Elizabeth Aitken, Director, University of London International Programmes at LSE; Mr Russell Brooks, Deputy Director, University of London International Programmes at LSE; Mr Chris New, Deputy Director, International Foundation Programme (University of London) Mr Bill Abraham, Director of Development (University of London); Ms Holly Peterson, Head of Constituency Engagement (University of London); Mr Alex Boughton, Head of Business Development (University of London); Mr Malcolm Yiong, Market Development Manager, South East Asia (University of London), and Ms Sylvia Ong, Manager for Learning and Student Development (ACCA). 

Truly, this is a year worth shouting, 'huat ah!' (our expression to indicate abundance and/or prosperity). Here’s looking forward to adding more names to the honour roll.
