James Cook University’s Vice Chancellor and President Professor Sandra Harding said that the award affirmed JCU Singapore’s position as an institution of higher education in Singapore.

“Since we started our operations in Singapore in 2003, we have committed ourselves to deliver quality education and ensure that our business processes are consistent with the demands of the Singapore education sector,” she said.

“I want to thank the staff and students of JCU Singapore whose efforts earned this award,” Professor Harding said.

The University’s Deputy Vice Chancellor and Head of the JCU Singapore campuses, Dr Dale Anderson, said that he considered it vital for JCU Singapore to maintain a strong and vibrant presence in Singapore.

“In Singapore, as with most other Asian countries, education is regarded as one of the most important aspects of life,” Dr Anderson said, “It is our responsibility to provide the best possible educational offering to students who have chosen to enrol with us.

“With this in mind, we will not hesitate to invest our efforts and resources to create a learning environment that will appeal to both Singaporeans and International Students.

“We are delighted with this award from AustCham. But our journey does not stop here. We will continue to focus on the needs of our students and ensure they are provided with the best possible education programs available” Dr Anderson said.
