Sino International Consortium School (SICS), formerly known as Singapore International Consortium School, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Singapore’s Furen International School (FIS) to promote Singapore as an education destination.
Under the agreement, signed on October 25 in Phnom Penh, both schools will collaborate to provide education pathway for Cambodian students.
“There is a full range of facilities to serve the students’ well-being and Furen is a unique school that focuses on student learning ability, just like SICS.
“For scholarship students to study at Furen International School in Singapore, the school will help prepare students for both academic and social life to align with Singapore’s education system and lifestyle,” said David Mok, Chief Executive Officer and director of FIS.
Overall, scholarship holders just need to pay $3,000 Singapore dollars per year.
The signing of the MOU re-affirms the commitment from both institutions to strengthen staff teaching competencies and provide scholarship opportunities for Cambodians to study in Singapore.
SICS focuses on pre-K up to K6 education and FIS enrols students from K7 to K12.
With Singaporeans on both management teams, both schools are on the Singapore-based curriculum preparing their students for the Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Ordinary/ Advanced Level or Cambridge International General Certificate of Education Advanced Level.
The two accreditations are internationally recognised for universities entrances all over the world.
This partnership will provide a K12 pathway to have Grade 6 going to Grade 7 students to continue their education in Singapore up to Grade 12.
This exclusive K12 pathway will equip enrollees who aspires for university education with strong academic competencies to cope with demands from their degree programs.
A minimum of 10 scholarships totalling US$450,000 will be awarded to Cambodians who have an interest in pursuing further study in Singapore.
The scholarships will offset the course fee and hostel accommodation fees for the awardees, providing them free study and living in Singapore.
Applicants will have to sit through two assessment tests - English and Mathematics and am interview to qualify.
A briefing on the scholarship program will be held on November 17, 2018 at SICS Campus from 9am to 10am.
