RAFFLES UNIVERSITY WILL BE OPERATING AS VIRTUAL UNIVERSITY [18 March 2020]
Some of you may be confused by recent newspaper reports stating that Universities are not allowed to run on-line classes or research during the Government Movement Control Order period of 18-31 March 2020.
I can confirm this matter has been raised with the Ministry of Education who have confirmed that universities can run on-line classes as long as students are not grouped together. Similarly for research, there cannot be face-to-face contact between the supervisors and the students.
Raffles University is running as a virtual university during this period with students and staff working at home. Raffles University complies with the Ministry’s orders.
Please do not worry, stay calm and continue with your learning.
I wish you success in your studies and examinations.
