Warwick In Asia - Open Meeting

Should the University Set Up a Campus in Singapore?

The University has been invited by the Singaporean Government via the Economic Development Board (EDB) Singapore to open a campus in Singapore.

The proposal, which has the full support of the Government of Singapore, is to establish a private campus as part of the private sector with both undergraduate and postgraduate provision.

The University has set up a group, chaired by Dr Colin Sparrow, from the Institute of Mathematics, and made up of representatives from across the institution, to fully investigate the offer in preparation for giving a considered institutional response.

During Summer 2004, the 'Asia Exploratory Group' chaired by Colin Sparrow, met on a weekly basis to preparing a paper for consideration at a special meeting of Senate on 22 September 2004.

Have Your Say

This is your chance to engage with the project and have your say prior to the meeting of Senate. Make sure that you check the website again on Wednesday to download a copy of the Asia Exploratory Group’s draft paper before coming to the meeting.
