23rd September 2010
Architecture Campus, Ground Floor Lecture Theatre

Once again we're doing out Singapore Movie night but with a twist, we'll be holding it at the Architecture Campus's Lecture Theatre located at the ground floor!

Movie : 12 Storeys
Director: Eric Khoo
Languages: CHinese, English and Dialect

Sypnosis: "12 Storeys confronts the anguish of many Singaporeans in a frank way. This intense insight into the shortcomings of the SIngaporean dream is a valuable step toward the insular city state's relization that, while economic statistics point only to success, there are more serious social problems acros the city state the merit examination"

Location: Architecture Campus, Lecture Theatre Ground Floor

Time: Food serving starts from 6, Movie starts at 7

Cost: Movie is free for all, food is free for memebrs and gold coin donation otherwise

Contact Singapore Presentation

Hello all! I hope everyone's enjoying the Winter break so far.

We are glad to be able to have Ms Wee-lim Bay, Area Director of Contact Singapore Australia to come down to our campus to give us a presentation on the career opportunities available in Singapore.

The presentation will touch on some of the growth areas in Singapore - such as healthcare, technology, professional services, maritime industry, education etc, job opportunities available within these sectors, comparative cost of living, taxes, salaries and so on. So it would be a good introduction to those who are interested in keeping abreast of the developments in Singapore, or interested in exploring career opportunities in Singapore

There will be light refreshments and time after the presentation for everyone to get to know more about each other and for questions to be asked in an informal setting.

Please feel free to contact us via Jeremy @ ssa.utas@gmail.com, Facebook: SSA Utas
