The Student Services Department (SS) acts as the first point of contact to provide a positive student experience for SUSS students. Besides managing the SS hotline, counter and written correspondences, SS also organise key university events, including SUSS Convocation and Scholarship award ceremony.

We offer innovative tools and resources to provide you with an exceptional digital learning experience at SUSS. Our suite of services include:

  • You can also attend live virtual classes and replay your lecture recordings on the LMS.
  • Learn more at http://learningservices.suss.edu.sg/lms.html.

iBookstore

  • This is your personal bookstore, which you access via Canvas, to view and download the digital resources such as eTextbooks and StudyGuides associated with the courses you are enrolled in each semester.
  • An eTextbook is the electronic version of a physical textbook, which should be downloaded before the end of semester and accessed for offline reading via BookShelf or Adobe Digital Editions on different devices and across various operating systems. Please note that if an eTextbook has been issued for the course, no additional physical textbook will be issued.
  • The interactive StudyGuide (iSG) is an e-book, written by the Faculty and Associate Faculty, for courses in SUSS. The StudyGuide is designed to engage students' learning through quizzes, activities, self-reflection and self-assessment.
