Introduction to UON Singapore
Celebrated as one of Asia's most advanced education, research and innovation hubs, Singapore has been the ideal location for the delivery of The University of Newcastle's programs in the region since 2002. 10 years on, UON Singapore (UONS) – a wholly owned entity of the University – boasts approximately 2,000 students enrolled in a variety of programs in both full-time and part-time modes with three major partners: PSB Academy, BCA Academy and Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI).
The present governance structure of UONS is as follows:
- UON Singapore Board with four Singapore-based external members
- Pro Vice-Chancellor/CEO based in Singapore
- Industry Advisory Committee
- Academic Director along with Academic Coordinators
- Academic Registrar based in Singapore
- Joint Academic Committees with Partners
- Operation Management Committee, chaired by the Pro Vice-Chancellor/CEO
- Academic Coordination Committee, chaired by the Academic Director
- Academic Governance Committee, chaired by the Pro Vice-Chancellor/CEO
With an expanding team headed by the Pro Vice-Chancellor/CEO and comprising professional staff, full-time lecturers and part-time teaching staff, UONS has been making bigger and better impressions amongst the student population in the region. From Indonesia to India, Myanmar to China, our student outreach continues to widen and expand as we increasingly participate in multifarious local and regional events attended by honorary guests as well as multitudinous participants and visitors.
