Starting today, Singapore has a new autonomous university that joins the likes of NUS, NTU, SMU, SUTD, and SIT.

Formerly known as SIM University (UniSIM), the institution has now been renamed to the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).

Lastly, SUSS will also continue to offer limited courses in business and engineering.
