About SCWO

The Student Career and Welfare Office (SCWO) was established in June 2016 as an expansion to the Student Resource and Development Secretariat (SRDS).

Formed in 2004, the secretariat focused on providing assistance to Singaporean students pursuing Islamic education at overseas tertiary institutions.

What started as a small secretariat grew to a full office in SCWO, serving a larger student population with the following expanded roles:

Knowledge Builder of Overseas Tertiary Islamic Education

Provide key and credible information to students, parents and public on tertiary institutions overseas that offer Islamic studies

Welfare Arm

Attend to the students’ welfare and their well-being while overseas

Developer & Connector

Assume a proactive role in assisting students in their professional development

Students traditionally pursue their tertiary Islamic education at universities and institutions located in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) and Southeast Asian (SEA) regions.

Our Student Liaison Officers (SLO), based overseas or otherwise, serve as students’ point-of-contacts and assist in matters such as admissions, professional development and guidance.
