A Finance Director at Hattan International, Singapore, Frederica (pictured left) studied for her University of London BSc Accounting and Finance degree at the Singapore Institute of Management. “I am so grateful I chose to study a University of London degree at SIM GE,” she says. “Attending a local university with more time constraints would have meant I wasn’t able to pay my own school fees and be self-reliant. The flexible nature of SIM GE allowed me to teach in my spare time. I was earning enough to be self-sufficient and pay all of my university fees with my own hard work.”
