Muslim Students Initiative
As recent as a year ago, or maybe even 6 months ago, Muslim students who were contemplating studying overseas had to do their own research. Be it roughing it out in the Middle East, freezing in London or Bollywood stars-sighting in India, potential students had to seek out their own contacts to hear first-hand the experience of studying overseas, getting accomodation, addressing transport woes, cost of living etc.
Fortunately for current students and Muslim students in the future insyaAllah, a new initiative called “Singapore Muslim Students Overseas” (SMSO) will be a boon in their academic pursuits. SMSO, the brainchild of Nadiah Hashim & Hidayah Amin, “strives to create a knowledge awareness platform of unity whilst catering to the academic, social and spiritual needs of Singaporean Muslim students and encourage learning and discussion on further education amongst members and the wider community.”
SMSO is organising a Muslim Students Initiative this Saturday, 10th September 2011, 1 to 5PM at the Singapore Management University (SMU) for anyone interested in pursuing studies overseas. This meet will also be beneficial for parents who no doubt will have their own concerns when it comes to letting their child board that plane without them to leave for an extended period of time.
They also have an interesting & exciting line-up of speakers for this Saturday. You can read their profiles below:
