20 May 2021: Conversion of scheduled face-to-face classes to online lessons from 27 May to 13 June

In view of the escalating Covid-19 situation and the Ministry of Education’s advisory for Institutes of Higher Learning to conduct more classes online where possible, we will be converting all scheduled face-to-face classes to online lessons. This will take effect from 27 May till 13 June. Examinations during this period will also be conducted online where possible.

You will be receiving specific instructions with regard to the arrangement of your online classes from your respective programme administrators via email or SIMConnect. Please keep a lookout for them.

For students who need to come back for self-study on campus as their home environments may not be conducive, we will allow a small number who have a genuine need to do so under strict safety controls. Details on how to apply, criteria for approval, and safe management and entry requirements will be posted on SIMConnect. Students without approval will not be allowed entry to the campus.

Please see the table below for the operations of services and facilities available during the period of 27 May to 13 June.

Precautionary measures at SIM

SIM has put in place a set of precautionary measures to keep our students, staff, associates, vendors and members of public safe and healthy. These measures are based on recommendations from the Ministry of Health, Singapore and consistent with guidelines set by the Ministry of Education, Singapore.

Our precautionary measures are:
  • Mandatory temperature taking for all persons entering our premises.

    It is compulsory for staff/students/course participants/visitors/associates/tenants/contractors to go through the temperature screening. Upon your arrival on campus, please proceed immediately to take your temperature at one of the screening stations before entering the campus. If you are screened to have a fever, you will be denied entry and advised to see a doctor immediately. Please call the clinic ahead of your visit and declare your travel history.

Your part in helping to contain the spread of COVID-19 in Singapore is to take personal responsibility by complying with all precautionary measures and to report someone whom you know is not complying. Ultimately, we can only overcome COVID-19 with the co-operation and public spiritedness of everyone in Singapore.
