SINGAPORE'S sixth university, SIM University (UniSIM), will open applications for its three full-time degree programmes next Wednesday.

But to secure one of the 200 places in accountancy, marketing or finance, applicants will need more than good grades.

Students will be selected based on not just academic results, but also other attributes such as social consciousness and commitment and creativity.

UniSIM provost Tsui Kai Chong said about 400 applicants will be shortlisted for the four-step selection process.
