The University of Essex degree programmes in Singapore have been accredited by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China.

The recognition of degrees from this accredited institution will give Chinese graduates more options in public service, global and multi-national organisations, and the private sector.

Professor Dominic Micklewright, Dean of Partnerships at University of Essex, said: “At Essex, we work hard to ensure that all of our students benefit from a transformational education experience and many of our graduates in Singapore have gone on to fulfil their ambitions.

“To receive this accreditation from the Chinese government is truly an honour that will afford our Chinese graduates the best opportunities for success as they embark upon careers in the private sector or public service in China.”

The accreditation was made possible by the Chinese Service Center of Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE), who provide services and support to the increasing number of Chinese students who choose to study abroad.

Essex degrees have been delivered by Kaplan in Singapore through Kaplan Higher Education Academy from June 2015 and Kaplan Higher Education Institute from November 2014.

Associate Professor Rhys Johnson, Chief Operating Officer and Provost of Kaplan, said: “Congratulations indeed to the University of Essex, on receiving the CSCSE accreditation. This recognition will go on to benefit Chinese graduates from Essex in their educational and career pursuits.”

The University currently offers Essex Business School degrees in Accounting & Finance, Banking & Finance, and Management & Marketing, and Edge Hotel School degrees in Hotel Management with Kaplan Singapore.
