SINGAPORE : Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott officially opened James Cook University's (JCU) Singapore campus at Sims Drive on Sunday (Jun 28), as part of his official visit to the Republic.


Also present was Senior Minister of State for Law and Education Indranee Rajah. The university has been in Singapore since 2003, operating out of the Spring Singapore Building in Bukit Merah.


It then moved to its previous campus on Upper Thomson Road in 2008 before making its way to the current 24,000 square metre premises in February 2015. Students from its Ang Mo Kio campus will also move over, and begin their lessons at the new campus in July.

 

 

JCU is the only wholly owned and independently run foreign university in Singapore since the closure of the University of New South Wales' Singapore campus in 2007.

 

Mr Abbott said that as Australia focuses more and more towards strengthening its links with Asia, universities focused on the tropics like JCU would be very well placed to move boundaries. He also said that through the new Colombo plan initiated by his administration, "the tide of students now flows both ways".

 

"We are returning the compliment that Singapore has paid to us by learning as much in your country as you have over the decades learning in ours," he said.

 

JCU Singapore is the first and only private education institution in Singapore to have attained the EduTrust Star quality mark from the Council for Private Education (CPE), the highest attainable for any private education in Singapore.

 

The EduTrust Star is given to institutions that excel in all key areas of management and the provision of quality education services. This mark is also a symbol of recognition for sustained efforts in organisational improvement.

 

Since the 1950s, more than 130,000 Singaporeans have graduated from Australian universities.
